12 oz. bottle, pours cloudy yellow with a big white head. Big barnyard funk, citrus and hay on the nose. Flavour is full of both citrus fruits and plenty of coriander, with a noticeable funkiness that kicks in later and a slightly sour, yeasty and citrusy finish. Crisp, clean, refreshing palate. Very solid.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Beverages4Less. Pours slightly hazy orange gold with a 4 fingers foamy whitge head. Has a rather spicey/gingery aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Very mild funk with a good dose that suggests ginger to me. Quite a flavor range. Maybe it just averages to gingerlikeness. Nah. I’m beginning to believe there’s rosemary in here. It’s pretty tasty stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of sage, rosemary, thyme and light straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, rosemary, sage and thyme with as crisp dry lingering spiced finish. Would be much better with a little restraint on the herbs. Can you say "test batchs"?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewdog Bar, Aberdeen. It pours cloudy straw yellow with high carbonation and a large foamy white head. The nose is hay, pepper, nut, lemon sherbet and wood polish. The taste is citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon and lime zest, peach and pear), lots of green herbs (thyme and sage), yeast, pine, grass and hay. It all culminates in a very herbal, bitter finish. It’s an interesting and enjoyable saison.
