Fra fat på Cirkus, Stavanger (Wild Beer krankupp) aug-16: gylden med fint skum. Behagelig men litt beskjeden duft av høy, krydder, gjær/brett og frukt. Frisk og funky sma med citrus, malt, dill og gjær. Halvtørr og samtidig ganske myk. Fin bitterhet gjorde at glasset fort ble tomt.

Bottled 330ml (AbM)
Hazy yellow color, small white head. Light spicey, Sorachi Ace dill aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Tropical fruityness underlying but flavor is dominated by spicey, grapefruity dill flavors. Interesting use of Sorachi Ace.

Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Very hazy golden-orange pour with bubbly white head. Aroma is farmy, with lemon peel and banana. Taste very tart sharp and bitter, farmy saison flavors. Palate light and very bubbly. Not bad for this style.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Front of Bottle Shows: Somerset Saison
Crisp light golden and honey coloured body with a glow of light copper and a very thick, five centimetre tall just off-white head that leaves a pretty nice lace on the side. Aroma of grass, hay, earth, mushrooms, funk, yeast and a faint hit of gueuze. Light-bodied; Very mild flavour of earth, some grass, a hint of yeast and a lot of funk, but this is VERY mild, there is not much flavour to this at all. Aftertaste shows the yeast, a hint of malt and the slightest bit of a dry grass or hay, but that’s it - no hops, no sweetness, no complexity and largely - no real flavour. Overall, an interesting beer that just fades off to nothingness after the aroma, really. Smells like it will have some flavours, but doesn’t ever really show up. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Small Batch Liqours in Denver, Colorado on 08-June-2014 for US$5,99 sampled at home in Washington on 25-June-2016, a bit longer than two years after purchasing.

On tap at The Craft Beer Co, Angel Islington on 17-June-2016. Hazy pale yellowish colour with a medium sized white head. Fresh fruity and zesty citrus aroma. Light body and medium carbonation. Flavour of tangerine oranges, lemon and grain. Refreshing, a little tart, but too fruity for my taste.
