Pours a clear blonde beer with a little white foamy head. Smells yeasty with a little hint of hops. Tastes lightly sweet, soft beer. Low on saturation.

5,1% AVB...de barril, en copa. Color amarillo palido opaco. Espuma blanca persistente. El olor muy a madera verde y sidra. En boca acida y en la que los aromas se mantienen como sabor, aunque se percibe algun toque mas a levadura. Dulzura baja, amargor medio, el acido persiste. El final algo mas herbal. No me ha gustado mucho...demasido "asidrada"

shoulderbroken (2377) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle from the brewery. Maybe left it too long as it got left behind when I moved out of the country. Clear pale blond colour with white fluffy head. Aroma is very Belgian, herbal, touch of spice. Maybe lost the hoppiness, but quite doughy, bit of fizz, touch of fruit, slightly metallic, slight creaminess. Taste is nice, herbal again, quite crisp. Bit metallic again, but I am guessing this is the age. Really should have drunk it earlier. Still nice though. Doughy maltiness, touch of fruity bitterness.

Bottle at home on a winters night in August, break from Black IPAs. 25th August 2012. Saison is not a favoured style of mine, but I like The Kernel. Pours clear and straw coloured, visible carbonation and a reasonable head, aroma is yeasty, flavour is refreshing and palate fairly fizzy for the Kernel, in line with the style. A good example, but I will not be having another

Scopey (7852) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle from the Kernel Brewery. Gusher! It pours clear golden yellow, with a thick white head and some suspended particles. The nose is dough, spice, floral, tangerine, orange and banana. The taste is dough, spice, tangy orange, tangerine, grapefruit, herbal and grassy notes, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2012
0.33 L bottle from the brewery. Cloudy yellow-golden body. Low blond top. Nice spicy and grassy nose with a fresh funky scent. Dryish, light sourish-sweet and spiced up malt flavor. Some fine fruity hop tones too, providing a crisp and clean mouthfeel. An interesting take on a Saison. Very moreish, very quenching.

EdKing (2022) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
From brewery. Colour is amber haze, white head. Nose is pungent yeasty, lemon citrous, banana, fruity, farmhousey and something a bit eggy, sulphurous. Taste is yeasty, citrus, fruity and a trace of that egginess again. Good though not perfect.
