cask at bag o’nails Stuu666 (15056) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2014
yes, someone brewed a nz-hopped dark saison, my ideal mash-up! tastes very porter like, Belgian character is pretty minimal really giving quite a sweet latte like coffee flavour predominantly with some earthy base notes. Hops are quite dialled back but a touch of fruity esters come through late on.
Cask at Cloisters. Pours brown, sweet, dry roast, fruity, light berry, thin. wheresthepath (2405) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2014

Cask handpull, PoW, Hinckley, 15/03/14. Deep ruby capped with beige. Raspberry-hinting sour nose with Flemish splashes. Dusty underlying perfume; lactic and vegetal hints, coal and chicory. Just a slightly mucky, souring stout really. And there’s nowt wrong with that. downender (8928) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Cask-conditioned, on gravity, at Bristol Beer Festival, March 2014. Deep brown with a decent, off-white head. Yeasty berry fruits, orange peel, some grassy hops and a moderately bitter finish. Good. Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Cask at the Ivy House - Nunhead, London. Pours clear, dark brown with a frothy, light beige head. The aroma has toasted brown bread with nips of Belgian yeast. Light sweet flavor with blackened toast, dried dark berries, burnt earth bitterness, suggestions of bitter cocoa. Light bodied with fine carbonation and a silky mouthfeel. Finishes with more bitter earth, some yeasty dark fruits, faint cocoa, dirt, more burnt toast. Not bad. madmitch76 (25817) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2014

Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival, KEGS. Cask. Murky dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Good carbonation here! Very good condition! Light tangy malts, whisper of dark character. Nice tangy citric peel hops, orange and a little grapefruit. Whisper of sherbet. Light dry finish. Pretty good stuff.
Cask at Merton Winter Beer Festival. Black beer lasting beige head. Saison yeast aroma. Some hop some dirty flavour. Some hop sting on the finish. Little bit of carbonation. Ok. Banana aroma
