Beese (2550) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush. Poured a hazy, very pale golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma was very light, with some sharp fruit, dough and gooseberries. Orange and elderflower flavours, with some mineral notes. Finish was very light; some bread, tinned fruit and hay. Fairly nondescript, but nothing bad about it.

Tastes light sweet, light bitter, light sour, notes of pepper, funky tart acidity, light oak, grassiness, citrus, saison esters. Dry finish, light bodied. Complex yet restrained, pretty interesting.

A decent saison. More balanced and smooth than the standard biere de table from the kernel. Less yeasty/tangy.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
September 6, 2014 - on draught at The Kernel. Clear bubbly gold with a nice white head and artistic lacing. Lightly tart aroma, a little hint of oaked chardonnay and Orval funk - taste follows, tastes more brett-y. Average body, fairly airy, delicate and floral with light sourness and middlin’ funk. As always, very well made and very drinkable.
