COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by crisp white wines, Saison Blanc features New Zealand hops, golden raisins and white pepper for a decidedly bright, spicy, and robust low ABV beer. Finished with Brettanomyces at packaging, this beer will evolve for many more years to come.

Garrold (1318) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy, straw colour. Lasting, sticky, white head, that gets bigger as the beer goes down! Sweet malt. Lemon. Raisins. Fruity spiciness. Yeasty fustiness. Busty silliness. Or summat. Taste is dry and lightly tart. Some lactic affair on the palate. Finish is gently dry, with a little of the spiciness remaining. I could drink this all day.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 23, 2014
Bottle at home. No head. Hazy dark yellow body. Mild citrus brett aroma. Fruity pepper flavor. Raisins? Well I could not taste any. There is however quite a good deal of acidity but the beer is not actually sour. Low carbonation. Long dry pepper finish.
