3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at barhop. Hazy straw pour, thin white head. Aroma of yeast, lemon, pepper, a little grass. Smooth and light. Light carbonation. Nice balance. Not enough pepper for the billing (almost undetectable as far as I can tell), but still a nice variation and true to the style. Very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at ’The Rhino Summer Beer Festival 2013’. Pours a hazy deep gold with a spare diminishing bubbly white head. Aroma is yeasty, herbal and citrusy along with a bit of spice. Flavour is spicy and herbal along with yeast and citrus. Average to medium bodied. I didn’t get much more spice then their usual Saison but regardless, this is pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ok, but a little thin on palate. The Szechuan peppercorn didn’t make my tongue numb, to be certain. Just a light, average saison. I liked their paysan a lot more than this. Has some bubblegum. Pours orange clear with not much head or lacing. Tap at Rhino summerfest.

On cask at The Rhino Summer Fest. Spiced aroma. Cloudy yellow. Low carbonation and understated spiciness works well as a cask making it nicely drinkable.
