bottle. Amber orange with one finger head. I was excited to find this one quite a few months after Pretty Things stopped making beer. Medium sweeetness with caramel and butterscotch notes, maybe a hint of clove. A bit of yeastiness, but not really funky.

Bottle, april 30th 2015. Copper body with a big offwhite head. Aroma is grassy with clove and pepper, taste is sweet honey, yeast and earthy hops. Mild fruityness in finish. A bit too far on the sweet side as a saison for me.

660ml bottle - thanks Mart
Sweet fruity aroma. Initially a 7, but it flattens and becomes boring quite quickly. Nice orange small tight head. Moussey palate, a bit heavy, even slimy after it’s warmed a touch. Sweet malts, some bitter woody resiny hops. At least it’s nice and fruity, but the sweetness gets heavy. Finish bitter, and I think some of the acidity does point to rye. Just a touch yeasty, but in a belgian way. Undecided. Took the whole glass o still not be decided.

bomber - nose is caramel, grain, grass and herbal. Sip adds rye and bread. reminds me of a Bière de garde more than anything and maybe a hoppy pilsner/marzen. Sweeter than I’m used to for the style. Has me sticking my tongue out like a lizard in a LSD-themed movie.
