Cask by handpump at Henglerís Circus, Glasgow - very cloudy brown, thin beige head, fruity nose, deep berry almost lambic flavour, mild traditional hop aftertaste

Hoppy and fresh tasting. Has a very earthy, interesting hop flavour - for some reason makes me think of twigs and bracken and such. Good malty base to back it up. Iím not sure why ratebeer rates this one so low - possibly because in character itís more like a British bitter than what is usually called "Saison"?

Love this. Dark, smokey, spicy. Bit strong for a session, but that ainít going to stop me tonight with my 9pt cask from the brewery shop!

Osprey87 (1958) - WALES - OCT 31, 2014
Cask at Falcon. Pale yellow, clear, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is light estery lemon, caramel. Body is medium to light, soft carbonation. I lost the rest of my notes due to having a shit phone. But, in short, this tasted pretty good.

imdownthepub (10578) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Cask conditioned at The Grapes, Oxford. Hazy copper with white head. This was a spicy number, cardomon, ginger and coriander came to mind, quite yeasty in a Belgian Ale way. Fullish on the palate, lasting. Decent enough if quite unusual.

Fin (7616) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Cask, Handpump, The Firefly, Worcester, Saturday 4th January 2014. Pours black with a creamy off-white head. Roasty in the mouth, soft, very tangy quite nice, full flavoured. Furry in the mouth, leaves a little hoppy furry coating, a little spicy around the edges. Good but not great. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

On cask at bon accord a deep reddish brown ale that is fruity sweet and yeasty bread and earthy flavours contribute to this dark spicy saision a real dessert style beer

McNeillR (1276) - SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Dark Auburn with an off white head withering to ringed. Rich syrupy esterage lightly toasted nose. Raking grain and super sweet yeast initial taste, nicely cutting bitterness and a Steely middle. Oily, thick, lovely dessert range mouthfeel. Creamy enough towards the finish and inviting tinselly copper linger. Not as bad as Iíd thought.

Cask, Blackfriars Glasgow

Dark spicey Belgian ale. Lacing of beige head. Sweet malt balanced by phenol yeast esters and sweet but peppery spices from yeast and grains of paradise.

kufdam (159) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Cask at The Nags Head in Reading. Darkest saison that I have tasted. Solid earthy flavours coming through after the classic saison hit.
