3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22nd December 2014
Craft Islington. Keg. Lightly hazy pale gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and crisp and semi dry. Light pale malts and light floralness. Herby streak. Mild tangy dried fruits. Little ester. Everything about this says Saison. Light crisp finish brings a little tangy orange peel. Not bad.

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly clear light amber, full bubbly 2" white head, strips of lace. Taste is malt with maybe a touch of corn, followed by hops on the swallow. Hops continue mildly through a medium finish. A nice light brew, but don’t make too much of it.

The taste is crisp, bitter, straw, peppery, lemon peel, grapefruit rind, floral, spice and some minerals with a dry, citrussy finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Crisp and crushable. Refreshingly refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’d call this a Belgian blonde or maybe a saison or something. It’s cloudy yellow with a fairly long lasting head of white foam. Its nose is quite yeasty, floral with some lemon zest which implies tartness. This is light but creamy on the palate and this texture brings out a banana note from the yeast. This is a light and refreshing but full flavored beer that finishes with some lingering fruit and earthy bitterness. If you like light hoppy Belgian beers, this will be right up your alley, really a great beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.355l can. This is a good looking kinda yellow orange really cloudy looking one with a tall almost fluffy really lacing white head. Smells quite nice this. Lots of wheat sweetness combined with yeast, mild lemon, straws and apples. Yeah, nice. Tastes nice also. Nothing extraordinary, but really drinkable. Wheaty and kinda herbal in a way. Dryish in a way. Almost a little mineralish. Feels nice and light oily in the mouth while the bubbles are about average. A slightly acidic hint is also present. Mild yeast dry finish and aftertaste. Refreshing in the steaming sun. 20.06.2014
