3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pours a clear orange with a big, fluffy pillowy head. Bright tropical fruits on the nose, something waxy, some booze and a definite hint of spicy, soapy Sorachi funk. Surprisingly bitter, really quite tangy. Orange pith, white pepper. Just a hint of soft malt, the farmhouse thing doesnít really appear until it opens up but thatís ok. Waxy lemon rind bitterness on the finish. Soft, creamy carbonation, really spot-on actually. Really quite unique - I wasnít convinced to begin with, but itís a good íun!

Mine was labeled Somerset rather than Epic saison. Anyway, itís a solid British-American-Belgian wild ale. Not really a saison; hoppier than anything youíd find in Belgium, plus the yeast isnít a saison yeast, itís more of a dry, barnyard-type geuze yeast. Iím getting the citrus orange/tangerine flavor, but it seems weird because Iíve never had these hops used with this type of yeast before. I love the innovation, but in terms of execution it is only a partial success.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Hazy orange beer with a big fluffy transient white head that laces nicely. Nose has grains, citrusy fruits (oranges mainly) and mild barnyard earthy grassy yeasty notes. Flavours are satisfyingly bittersweet with a light peppery dry hop finish. Palate is less full bodied than many other saisons but this makes for more sessionability which is ok in my book. Another winner from this very commendable brewery.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lemon peel hop aroma with pepper spices in the background. Appearance is yellow with a big white head with good retention. Flavor is full of citrus zest notes. Pepper notes are present in the background. The beer is sweet upfront but dry on the end. Mouthfeel has a medium body and a high level of carbonation. Overall, it's a decent beer.
