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!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Tesco, drunk at home. Light to medium gold with a fine white head. Honey, yeast, coriander, chilli and hints of leather in the nose. Bittersweet and spicy taste, with a dry and slightly acrid aftertaste. Very warming for its strength. This feels more English than Belgian but it’s still drinkable, just not overexciting. The spicy note is nice though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sweet taste, slightly syrupy palate. Pale colour, though not unappealing. A little sickly - doesn’t stand up to repeated drinking.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Slight aroma of floral hop, but not too flowery. More spicy and pine-like. Nice pale orange/blonde colour. Taste is perhaps a little too sweet, but some bitterness there. I quite like the flavour, reminds me of orange liqueurs, and the mouthfeel has that vanilla ice-cream in a wafer feel that a good Saison should have (Eg Dupont). Finish is slightly thin. I think they could have gone bigger with the hops, but for a Supermarket beer this is pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a bubbly medium amber with a disappearing frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet fruit. Light to medium body, flavour is sweet berries and Belgian yeast with a bitter finish. Don’t really get the saison.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Tesco. The Ratebeer reviews suggest a better experience than mine. First, pipe cleaner then slight milk then a beer that seems to be diluted. Nothing like any Saison I've had before. Disappointing, Simon (Banks's Brewmaster) Yates. Bland.

Pretty good, more mild than many saison-style beers. Perfectly drinkable, in my opinion.
