3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
No head, faintly veiled orange-ochre beer. More citrussy, fruity hops, bit dough, or rather, spiced dough. Mannah, spiced, fruity hops; dried mustard powder. Slick, and medium to well-bodied. Nothing spectacular, nothing bad, nothing Saison.

Bottle. Dark gold with thin but persistent head. Lovely nose, lychee, melon, caramel, gorgeous. Exotic fruit kind of flavour, with a touch of breadiness and barnyard on the finish. Really nicely balanced fizz. Top notch saison.

A great end to a day of drinking, matched with a cheeseboard.
Dark amber with a spicy pineapple ester on the nose. Some wheaty spice and a touch of hay on the nose. Fruity hops, some bitterness and a spritzy dry finish

In bottle at the Marble Arch. Pours a golden colour with a lovely thick, pillowy white head. Saison aroma of lemon, white pepper, coriander, fresh cut grass and caramel. Quite bitter with alcohol present but well balanced. Flavours of lemon, white pepper, leather, grass, caramel and yeast. Heavy carbonation and a fair CO2 prickle. Nice and oily also.
