3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with huge white head, gets frothy. Aroma is super fresh hops! Packed with citrus, grape, slight pine. Only subtle wheat and funk. Has a peppery saison touch too and some grapes. Taste is somewhat sweet, but turns crisp bitter, really dry and pleasant alcoholiv touch, but it’s well integrated. Creamy body. Pine and citrus fruits, acidic orange. Went perfectly with Christmas dinner.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home from brewdog online
pours hazy yellow with big fluffy white head and some big yeast esters with a tropical note. At first it comes out boozy warm but thankfully doesn’t last long as it gets replaced by fruity hops and a dry bitterness. This one is perhaps a little old as there’s no fresh hop burst but instead a mellowed well integrated saison yeast ale. Perfect carbonation and medium bodied+far too easy drinking for the strength.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours a light orange colour with a big frothy head.
Its very much like a wheat beer in look, taste and aroma, but with a hoppy kick to it.
It has a full bodied feel with a bitter sweet finish.
Overall a very good beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden, sparkly appearance. Lively bubbles and thick/vibrant head. Excellent head retention. Smells of cotton candy, wet dog (some brettanomycys yeast funk) and spicy citrus fruit aromas. Tastes different to how it smells, that’s for damn sure. Tart and bitter with some pineapple and finger lime hops at the beginning which tapers out with a boiled candy sweetness and a crisp dry finish. Not your average saison, but still very quenching to the palate and playful on the mouthfeel. Definitely worthy of my time/money.
