Epic by name, epic by nature, this Farmhouse Ale is a transcontinental fusion of Belgium’s eclectic beer culture and the feisty hops of North America brought to life with the aid of West Country artisanal brewing wizardry and judicious use of the US-grown Sorachi Ace hop. On the nose, the hops deliver a big splash of tropical fruit, followed by ripples of well-seasoned spiciness spreading outwards. In the mouth a tangy, bittersweet fruitiness holds sway, while tangerine oranges tap dance their way across the tongue in the finish.

Sampled draft @ Oersoep Craft Beer Festival 2015. Hazy orange, HUGE, HUGE creamy off-white head. Nose is exotic fruits, peach, strong fruit, blue cheese. Taste is the Sorachi Ace blue cheese, lots of it, mixed with peach, exotic fruit, light yoghurt, creamy, bread, faint floral in the back. Creamy body. My kind of beer. Pretty epic indeed.

330ml bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a good white head and lacing throughout. Incredible aroma, tropical fruits, citrus and a touch of malt. Flavours of mango and papaya give way to citrus, intense hops and a little spice. Ends with very late bitter finish that lasts. Smooth, with moderate carbonation. Surprisingly complex and delicious.

garthicus (2912) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2013
Appearance: glorious neon orange, cloudy with a phenomenal 3 finger virginal white head. Aroma: oh wow. What an aroma, mango hop, so fruity & hoppy. Like peeling a ripe mango. A little spicy too. Gorgeous. Flavour: Wow, big juicy mouthfeel, has that familiar ’farmhouse’ flavour with a heap of citrus and mango hops thrown in. Lemon peel, lots of spices, coriander, yeasty, so wonderfully hopped. Tremendous.

BeerNinjaUK (317) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle from beer subscription box. Pours cloudy golden with thin foamy head. Fruity aroma with sweet stone fruit and citrus - rather duty too. Soft taste with refreshing finish. Unfiltered, very hazy gold color somewhat peach with small white foam. Aromas of, fruits like peach and citrus. Also smells of straw, dust and malt with light hop touch at the end. Palate, medium texture and light body, with small carbonation and nice long hoppy/citrusy finish. Taste, is quite sweet and simple. Tastes softly of lemons and hops. Overall, very nice saison beer, nice simple and refreshing, beautiful color and aromas all that you need for simple nice saison.

Bottle. A gusher when the bottle was opened but a quite flat beer appears after all the fucking cleaning up. A bad start for this beer but my mood soon lifts after one sniff - soap (not bad though), lemon and spice. Flavour has much the same as the aroma with a hint of the saison funk and a pithy orange finish. Very good.

Fin (9690) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
I picked this up at Jacks, Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon Saturday 3rd August 2013 consumed at home Wednesday 21st August 2013 Gold with large creamy frothy white head, fairly clear, head sticking on way down. Soft in the mouth, really good interpretation of a saison, dry, touch spicy, good bittersweet bite, but goes drier and bitterer, bloody good, its lemony, fruity, tasty. Marvellous.
