Quanto mi è piaciuta sta birra!. Bionda con un bel cappello di schiuma persistente. Al naso sentori speziati, di lieviti; peperina con un ritorno agrumato. Al palato le stesso connubio di sapori. Attacco dolce di lieviti nell’intermezzo il sentore caratteristico del pepe e un finale agrumato. Il tutto è ammalgamato perfettamente. Non stanca mai. Buono il corpo e la carbonazione. La mirra non ho avuto mai l’opportunita di odorarla e di assaggiarla(!) quindi non saprei descrivervela e collocarla nella degustazione. Birra stupenda. Provatela.

Pours amber with a large lasting head. Nose shows light bready malt, lemon and grapefruit, along with spicy Belgian yeast and banana. More spicy notes as flavours along with some serious mineral content further drying out the finish. Other than that there’s some bready malt and little else. Carbonation seems a bit full-on. Seems pretty spot-on for a saison but its just not exciting me.

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Super carbonated, when I popped the top a big gush of foam spewed from the bottle. A deep thick looking layer of foam covers a hazy beer that is the colour of an apricot skin. Melon, peaches and nectarines dominate the aroma with a sweet rich fruitiness. Full flavoured and silk like in the mouth with a creamy aftertaste.

Bottle. Cloudy pale amber, some chunks, large white head. Aroma of hay, nectarines, lemon pudding, spices - coriander seed, pepper and mature ginger (I suppose that’s the myrrh). That it’s Szechuan pepper becomes obvious in the taste. Fairly light-bodied, high carbonation. Light sweetness with grain and stone fruit, some lemony tartness. Bitterness is firm. Then a procession of spices that starts with white pepper and coriander and then’s a flash of prickly ash. Fairly dry finish. Good. If the spices are a bit overdone it’s only by a tiny bit.
