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!

ForlornHope (173) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
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.

sic1314 (4750) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2015
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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Galvatron (6) - SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2014 does not count
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.

stravale (2395) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Longford [211114]
Golden amber, clear, thin frothy white head
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 (254) - 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!

davidtjm (819) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2014
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 (2774) - 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.
