3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle. This pours a clear amber with a medium white head that lasts the distance. Its aroma is yeast, and citrus. its taste is citrusy with hints of caramel and a slightly smokey dry bitter finish that you get with Belgian yeasts. And thats a key point missed by the naming of this beer. Its a BELGAIN SAISON.. and quite frankly the best Belgian Saison Ive tasted so far outside of Belgium!

Bottle from Tesco. Second of the Marston revisionist Iíve tried, and Iím even more impressed with this one. Light amber, not much aroma. Lightly bittered, gentle carbonation. Floral honey, apricot. Could drink this all day.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colour. A bit orange. Very slightly cloudy. Tastes like smoked hops and leaves a taste at the back of the throat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden with a small head. Very pleasant fruitiness with hops in the back ground. Far better than I expected. In fact I couldnít believe that it came from Marstons. Well done them.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Tesco Bradford. Pours pale gold and fizzy. Light bodied and refreshing, Belgian yeast and fresh herbal flavours, a little like a watered down Leffe Blond, lingering finish, slips down very nicely. Interesting but not great, not bad for an own brand.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Grovesnor. Pours clear as a bell, pale gold, foamy white head. Texture has some spritz. Light spice on the aroma, malt too. Taste has a chalky bite behind the muted saison characteristics. Interesting, but still a very British beer.

On cash at the Grosvenor.
Appearance - golden with a proportionate head.
Nose - a little of the expected spice some tangy fruit and pale malt.
Taste - oranges and some spice but really itís more fruity and malt.
Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish the is a little astringent.
Overall - not a Saison from my experience of the style but decent.
