What an intriguing beer. And afterwards I dreamed of saison. Opens with quite a "pop", and pours off white (think witbier) with a huge head. A medley of floral and light citrus and earthy aromas with a very pleasing flavor and light, dainty mouthfeel. As it warmed, I thought of white wine. Rather dry, I’ve had other saisons that were sweeter, this is quite dry, and I do so the comparisons to Belgian triples. An excellent beer. Wish I had more. Thanks to Michael Lelevier for bringing this to Panama from New Mexico.

flying_pig (1366) - SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2016
355ml Bottle from Brewdog’s DogHouse BottleDog, Glasgow (£5.10):
I really enjoyed this, mainly as it didn’t seem like as strong a saison since the usual funk & tart flavours were considerably subdued with more emphasis on sweet & tropical fruit flavours. The balance was good though with nice bitterness & I felt the beer would be an introduction to the style; great stuff & one that went down a lot better than I thought it would.
