Clear as yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma has nice mild spice...ginger, coriander, sage, chamomile. Flavor follows suit and adds light grass and faint wheat or spelt. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and mildly bitter...grass/citrus...clean. love it.

On tap at Goods from the Woods 2014 with Festero. The spelt gives this a cereal almost cheerios character which worked quite well with the yeasty esters. Light refreshing brew that I quite enjoyed.

Leighton (11589) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Keg at the brewery. Pours clear yellow with a creamy, white head. The nose holds zesty lemon and biscuity pale malts, some straw. Light sweet flavor with pleasant dry dough, some salty sourdough bread, lemon peel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish, lightly bitter, with further hay, citrus peel and restrained, biscuity pale malt sugars. Great balance, super drinkable. Great.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, pale malts, light wheat and grain notes, hints of bitterness, and light fruits. Flavor the same. Lighter texture. A pretty good saison for how light it is.
