We love nothing better than Belgian-style saison but with this blissful version weíve added our own Wild interpretation of the style by adding a dash of funky Brettanomyces yeast plus roasted apricots and a hush-hush blend of spices. All of this makes for an extraordinary beer with an array of aromas that leap out of the glass followed by a spicy, fruity, tart and peppery palate and a long lingering finish.

Odd and yet good. Donít recall too much more. Not sure if it was in bottle or tap, believe it was tap.

oliodnb (547) - ITALY - MAY 20, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours very cloudy amber with two fingers of bubbly beige head. Aroma is acidic with sweet fruity notes, yeast, spices. Taste has an unexpected roasted note, a bit too much acidity, sweet fruits again, nice belgian yeast touch. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Unusual.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber with an orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains and spice with some apricot, both sweet and tart, underlying. Flavor starts with sweet apricot, sweet grain and light spice but finishes slightly tart. A bit thin.

Draft. Dark ruby pour. Ginger is a little overwhelming in aroma and taste. Some funk is present but on the whole the spices need to be dialed back here.

A pleasing looking cloudy rusty coloured brew with a decent and long lasting head of foam. It smells sour of the fruity kind. I canít put my finger on which fruit is involved. Apricots. I guess I should have read what was on the label. Roasted apricots? They do taste on the slightly burnt side but it doesnít interfere much with the tasty sourness. Mediumy body and carbonation. Iím getting some light notes of Brett now but overall, this is not a brew that I fancy very much and isnít worth the money I paid for it. Kind of Meh, to be honest.
