harrisoni (19859) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2018
Bottle from the brewery in Bermondsey and drunk at home. 5.2% abv. Clear gold colour lasting white head. Saison yeast aroma. A bit more aggressively sour than a lot of saisons. Sour lemon flavour. Not a lot of carbonation. A lot of sour. Lemon. I mean there's some wheat flavour too. It's fine. Just low carbonation. And more sour lemon and wheat than you may expect. Wow, it's good, but it's a lot more in your face than Saison Dupont for instance. Good though. tderoeck (11092) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2018

Clear blond beer, small creamy white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: funky, lots of brett, hay, funky. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: pretty fruity, bit sourish, malty touch, pretty watery, brett notes, citrus. Aftertaste: soft bitterness, fruity, bit watery, grapefruit skin. Once again, not really seeing how this would be a saison.

Draft at The Alehouse, Zurich. Pours a clear pale yellow hue with a minimal white head. Fruity nose with Belgian yeast and spice notes. Taste follows nose with some oak notes. Tart finish. NachlamSie (3643) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2017
Draft at Dynamo, though I see the description here indicates it's bottled. Perhaps this is a new development? I also didn't realize this was an English brewery. This could pass for an authentic Belgian beer and reminds me a lot of the upper end of the saisons coming out of The States these days. It's a cloudy yellow beer with a thin head. Great yeast character in the aroma with suggestions of pepper, pineapple, and straw. Mouthfeel is lively and the finish is very dry. It hints at citrus juice in the mouth with some notable acidity while never being really sour. Peppery undertones with each sip. Bov (13553) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 3, 2017
