16.9oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with huge white foamy head that lingers. Incredible lacing. Aroma of saison yeast and grass and citrus rind. Taste has lots of peppery spice and yeast and some herbal funkiness as well. Very refreshing saison.

MrTipple (3671) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2016
Barnyard, dry grain and cereal malts, yeast. Hazy, pale gold, medium, frothy, white head. Light bitter. More grain and bread malts, barnyard and yeast, medium bitter citric peel, some grapefruit, soft carbonation, medium bodied, bitter and dry finish. Decent Saison, yet could do with some more complexity. Bottle from M&S, White City.

ManVsBeer (8762) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle. Clouded pale amber with a thin head. Somewhat fruity in its nose, it has a very palatable texture where fruits, lager malts and sugars are all evident.

500 ml bottle. Pours a dirty orange-golden with a white head. Breadish yeasty aroma with some hints of lightly roasted malt. The taste is of medium sweetness in the beginning and the light to medium bitterness. Malty body with mostly grains and some molasse and melon.

berkshirejohn (6061) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A manageable, cloudy pale amber pour with a thin white head; yeasty aroma with some citrus peel; soft and spritzy in the mouth with a sour grainy body and some bitter orange zest; then a satisfying zesty warmth to the finish. Rather good.
