3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle at The Head of Steam, Durham. Pours hazy gold with thin bright white head & decent lacing throughout. Aroma primarily of citrus, slightly musty light yeast funk, spices, bread. Taste gives a tasty bit of citrus fruit followed by a palate-drying hit that only saison yeast can do. Biscuit and bready notes, plenty of light spice & herb notes. Decently balanced. Mouthfeel a touch too thin. Refreshing would be the main descriptor to use for this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellowish head, bit fluffy, over faintly veiled golden beer. Very fruity nose, pineapple, peach, lavender. More lavender, rosemary and ginger in the taste, with fruity-neutral background, maybe slightly bitterish finish. Light body, well-carbonated, long-lasting spiciness. If there’s no lavender in this, what is this for yeast?? French Saison....?
