hawthorne00 (2770) - Melbourne, - OCT 5, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Bottle with a label that made me feel underdressed, 11C. Pale amber with a large dense cream head. Vibrant aroma of apricot, peach, dough, spices, flowers, lime leaves. Bittersweet with firm bitterness kicking in straight away. Fruity, dough, slight tartness. Dryish bitter finish with lingering spices and citrus peel. More saison than IPA IMHO (certainly moreso than the Nøgne Ø / Bridge Road India Saison). Anyway, a really joyous beer. [4.0]

Growler. Oh, where’d it go? Heavier on the palate, sweetness and bitterness much more prominent. Nimbler in the bottle with spices and tartness playing a much bigger role. Much more IPA-like - and still pretty good, but more like 3.6. Leaving rating as per bottle.

Thanks for sharing fux! Sampled draft as @ Tilquin English Beer Festival 2015. Copper, dark amber,… Sweetish malts, light herbs, sweetish, too much sugar, malt, light dough, orange,… Okay but too sweet for me. Touch sweet spice.

Odore presentazione e attacco da saison, successivamente si sente la commistione con l’ipa, strana decisamente ma molto molto interessante e beverina!
