3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Very fizzy, hence fluffy white which lasts and lasts, like uninspiring coitus. Lively in the food chute, with a nose of drying straw dust and punch from the Galaxy. Taste is dry, with massive Belgian yeast taste. A flavourful and enjoyable Saison, which is a bit like saying a dog
