COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison for friends.
Itís amazing what two friends can do when they get together to brew beer. Thereís something to be said about the friendship and camaraderie that exists over a steaming mash tun or boiling brew kettle. This is the result: Belgian & English pale malts meld with wheat, oats, rye and aromatic malt perfectly, allowing this beer to freely ferment towards a yeast driven flavour profile in the traditional Belgian way.
Slightly tart with a pungent estery aroma, this is the beer you should enjoy with friends.

Niksko (325) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2013
500ml bottle.
Pours a crystal clear lightish golden with a finger or so of fizzy head which fades quickly.
The nose has some fruity white grape notes, some banana esters, floral perfume and some grainy notes. It smells just like a sour mash fermentation.
Flavour is moderately tart, with some doughy and earthy notes, and more of that vinous kick. Itís somewhat reminiscent of a more acidic white wine.
Body is light, and carbonation is definitely overdone. This is a problem Iíve had with some of their other beers as well. Once you let it offgas a little you can taste more of the beer.
Pretty interesting and tasty. Not too complex, but enjoyable.

Davros (1923) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows funky saison notes along with spicy hops and a lemon character. More lemon and funky notes as flavours along with a misplaced doughy yeast. Unnecessarily high carbonation.

hawthorne00 (2413) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle, 10C. Cloudy gold with a large off-white head that fades to a cm quickly. Aroma is quite Wit-like at first, with wheat, lemon pudding, cloves, bubblegum. Some berries, banana and mysterious spices notes are there too. Taste is sweet and a little tart with modest bitterness. As well as fruits and spices, thereís a quite heavy rye note that I wasnít sold on. Pretty interesting though.

On tap at BeerDeLuxe. Nice combination of flavours, yeasty and malty. Aromas of citrus, grain, and hay. Taste is sweet and sour, with average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, cloudy, with a frothy head.
