Bottle. Poured with a big head and slightly cloudy.Fruity with a bitter finnish that lingers for some time. A bit too bitter for my personal taste but still a good attempt at this very specialist style.

About 2 weeks ago, I went to Brighton, I stayed in a hotel. The hotel was good but the beer selection at the bar was pretty appalling. Thanks to CBC Brighton, I didnít have to touch any of that shit. So this is what I picked up from CBC. Lovely pub by the way. Iíll pay a proper visit soon. Yeah so beer..subtle character and smooth finish. A bit spicy here a bit fruity there. Enjoyable enough.

Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14 (Iím keeping this a little shorter than my normal rating style to help catch-up my backlog a little faster)
I thought this was a pretty solid beer. The grain and spice notes go nicely with the fruity component. Doesnít blow you away, but very solid stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with an abundant & persistent cloud of frothy, soft white head foam, and clingy ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was light greenery & mint, with subtle mango & orange. Light bodied, with lively carbonation, the taste continued the mild esters, with a bit of perky tartness, and a lightly dry finish. Understated, but refreshing, and very quaffable!

From on tap poured into a snifter -- This is a slightly funkier than normal saison. I would have loved to drink this on a hot summer day outdoors, it was very refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a pale hazy gold with a high, large-grained, mashed-potato head. Nose is lemon, spice, and a little barnyard, earth, and wood. Peppery sweetness up front, with mango and orange frontwards; thereís a touch of bitterness and hops grassiness, and a vegetal note shading close to green chiles. Finish is long, dry, herbal, and spicy. Very nice.
