3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Pours a clear light orange, with a tall white head that gives way to a fine white lacing. Smells of citrus hops, saison and brett yeast. The taste is herb bitter, with notes of grapefruit and honey. A bit of harsh bitterness in the aftertaste, the kind that makes your mouth tight - thankfully, it works OK in this beer, but still, it’s not among my favourite tastes.

Bottle from Otter’s Tears, Burslem. Pours hazy golden orange with a huge white froth. Nice and hoppy, some brett, sharp finish. I liked this and I’m not a great fan of saisons.

Hazy yellow-orange body with big frothy white well-lasting head. Fruity hops, pine, perfume, a bit of barnyard, some sweat, some funk. Heavy bitter, light to medium sweet, medium to heavy acidic, long dry finish. Medium body, oily palate, lively carbonation. A good saison for this amount of hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy light golden, with a big creamy head. Aroma is tropical hops with mango, pineapple and passion fruit, and yeasty notes of wood, as well as some funky bretty notes. Creamy body, with average carbonation. Flavour is sharp tropical hops with peaches, grapefruit and orange peel, and yeasty notes of wooden barrels, white wine grapes, as well as some farmyardy notes. Lingering hoppy bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a modest white head. Gentle yet classy aroma of oranges, light puddingy dough, under-ripe nectarines. Medium bodied, carbonation on the low side for a saison. Decent balance between sweet, tart and bitter, with fruit flavours making up most of all three. Oranges, nectarines, some light dough, gentle spices. Dry and quite bitter at the end with a suggestion of funk right at the end. (Almost) justifies its alcoholic strength with depth rather than punch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from my secret santa Saeglopur, many thanks! Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Lime zest, peach, green leaves, spices, light floral and a tiny bit of funk. Great balance of sweet and bitter, lovely creamy texture, medium body and soft carbonation. Wonderful lingering fruity and spicy bitter finish, slightly tart, dry with hints of green tea. Not very bretty, but a lovely fruity saison with great texture and finish. Edit: when warming up the brett becomes more potent in the finish and it seems just right.
