4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not being a massive fan of saisons, i was intrigued by this one as it has big hops married with the belgian yeast. The result is fantastic. fresh tropical fruit and bubblegummy bananas are all over this. really refreshing too. great beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Golden straw, moderate haze, frothy white head, nice lacing. Hoppy nose, faint floral note. Very carbonated, strong floral notes albeit dull, hoppy but not bright. Spritzy on the tongue. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Not big on either an IPA or a saison, but at least well balanced. Seems light on both halves, but decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from WInooski Beverage. Partly hazy light orange with a huge white head that eventually settles down Interesting combination of citrus, light funk and farmhouse, some honey, some malt and a hint of lemon. Moderate body, initially high carbonation which eventually settles down, somewhat sweet, definite citrus and light other fruit, becomes very dry and quite bitter towards the end. Very tasty and worth trying.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Pours a beautiful light amber, with a big dollop of white fluff. Smells as dry as a bone, with some white wine qualities. It’s marvellous. Super dry as it enters your mouth, with a hint of funk; then the hops emerge: super bitter, but lightly crisp. There is a bit of Belgian yeast on the finish too. An excellent experiment, which is flavoursome and refreshing.

Flavor is very interesting. Belgian malt and yeast early transitioning to fruity hop bite in the finish. Dry and nice. Excellent.
