3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In bottle and consumed ’Partizan’, Saturday 17th August 2013 Pours hazy amber with white head. Soft in mouth, with a real thrusting bitterness, this was really moreish and much the better in a comparison with the Black Pepper, Ginger and Liberty Hop Saison. Like Kernel I think this sort of beer is where Partizans strength lies. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours cloudy gold with a moderate, foamy white head. Loads of dry, pithy citrus on the nose, tangerine, orange, stone fruits. Light to light-medium sweetness with a cleansing mineral quality, mellow bitterness, lots of semi-dry citrus fruits like orange, tangerine, grapefruit, hints of peach and other stone fruits. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light sticky citrus hop finish with plenty more drying tangerine and orange, cleansing minerals, faint dry pale bread, hints of pine. I wasn’t crazy about this beer at first but it really grew on me as I got into it.
