MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, - MAY 8, 2014
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!

Aroma of lemon with some spice thrown in. Pours golden, clear and with a white foamy head. A fruity, lemon and spicy hop flavour. A fine beer

A good supermarket beer, very drinkable. Not excessively hoppy but good balance of flavours.

Aroma of soft lemon, bit spicy, light malts
Taste of soft lemon, some bitter spicy hops, dab of spicy yeast, pale malt background
Palate - soft carb, medium body, bit oily. Finish is more bitter, bit zesty hops, slightly harsh afters
Overall - A golden ale with some soft spicy yeast notes. Not really a Saison. Average - not bad for a supermarket beer

beeebon (222) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Pours a pale golden with frothy heady. On the nose there is straw, grass, slight citrus and yeast. The taste is a balanced sweet and bitter, not too bad at all. Palate is slick but thin, overall not too bad at all!

Bottle. Pour is gold with a foamy head, aroma is fruity, floral sweet. Taste is sweet, light fruitiness. Decent and easy-drinking beer, used it for some cooking and it served that purpose well

garthicus (2734) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Irish Tesco seem to be getting more of their ’own brand’ stuff. Appearance: Light orange, medium white head. Aroma: Skunky, earthy, cooked vegetables, grass, light lemon. Flavour: light sweetness, tiny amount of yeast, grass, medium length sweet finish. Not quite there as a saison.

Slight haze, golden coloured with a thick white head. Interesting nose with fruity hops and sweetish malt. Good body with sweet malt to the fore and fruity notes lingering on the finish. Rather nice brew I think!
