Firm hazy orangey golden, bushy eggshell puff of a head. Crystalline grapefruit, baking tray paper and a colleseum of peppery esther holding the nose together. Knotted blueberry, dead weight creamy lemon and a twist of mango. Lush, screwing carbonation and fading shured up mouthfeel. Crisp, scrunched bitter finish and a clammy hardass gooseberry linger. Yes.

Madirish76 (42) - Whittier, California, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle courtesy of the brewer. Brought across the pond. Had a wonderful nelson hopped nose. Taste is a mix of the saison "spice" slight peppery and vinous characters. The only thing that would make this better would be oak barrels.

angel77 (1420) - oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 19, 2014
Caña en cimmeria el 12-11-2014. Color ámbar anaranjado amarillento con poca espuma blanca aromas y sabores ligeramente maltosos y afrutados tropicales con ligeros toques herbáceos, ligero amargo final. Cuerpo medio con 6.8 fácil de beber que poco a poco según va calentando va haciéndose algo mas pastoso y denso. No esta mal, fácil de beber y "refrescante"
