Bubbles + Apples + Wild Yeast photo (16) Named after the ancient Greek goddess of beer, this is an equally divine Belgian-style saison with a copious amount of New Zealand hops, freshly harvested Somerset apple juice and wild yeast added to the mix. However, we like to take things just that bit further (it’s the Wild way!) — once bottled the beer undergoes a secondary fermentation with champagne yeast, giving it a brisk spritziness on the tongue. Serve chilled in a champagne flute to allow the bouquet of playfully aromatic notes to be fully appreciated. Take a sip to enjoy a further cascade of striking and sensuous flavours alongside the carefree champagne-like spritziness. The long, dry finish is both refreshing and complex.

Pours hazy gold yellow with a huge white pillow. Aroma is apple light tartness, small farmy, and light grassy malt. Taste is a nice apple sweetness, light sourness and grassy malt. Not overly sour but overall quite enjoyable.

gegwilson (3038) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Shared with Pix. Pours hazy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of cider, brett and citrus. The taste has bready notes, citrus, apple and yeast. Light brett sourness. Quite a full, almost creamy mouthfeel with just a light sparkle. Tasty.

beer-yum (1263) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 1, 2016
Floral grassy aroma in a hazy yellow pour. Surprisingly fruitier than the usual saison - but that only helps it warm one up. A very ’moreish’ winter take on the style.

Bottle, 75 cl. It’s a lightly unclear golden colored beer with a finger thick white head. Lacing. Citrus, pine cones, pale malts, some funk and peppery notes in the aroma. It’s full bodied and soft on the palate with a nice bitterness. Some greiat notes, but mostly citrusy, piney hops in the flavor. Pale malts and a wee pepper touch in the back. Long finish. Overall, a tad yeasty, but sure nice. 160102

From bottle at Grünerløkka mat- og mikrobryggfestival 2015. Hazy yellow, big rocky white head that wont disappear. Aroma is spicy of pepepr and clove, apples and tropical fruit. Chunky malt sweetness with fruit, mild funky tones. Estery spicy finish, banana hints.

I would call this over carbonated scrumppy from summerset England. Off flavors from wild yeast. Definitely not my thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
