568ml bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A bright amber pour with a loose cream head and very lively carbonation; pleasant yeast aroma with some corriander; lively in the mouth with a lip-smacking corriander taste; and a clean dry finish with some gingery spice and a trace of caramel. A substantial, satisfying beer - I suspect this would be a perfect match for a fiery curry, but unfortunately I don’t have one to hand at the moment.

Belgian yeast aroma, sweet, a bit eggy and farty. Sweet smooth palate. Full and sweet sugary stickiness. Spicy belgian taste, clearly some corriander seeds here, but there’s a heftier spiciness too. Has a fruitiness, but is harsh, and a bit sour. Heavy, not a refreshing drink at all.
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear copper pour with a big frothy off white head, aroma has coriander and some spice, taste has some red fruit action, along with spice, some apple pie, very herbal with impressive yeast profile.

Bottle. Hazy golden body with a thick off-white head. Steady carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of green apple, subtle spices and peanut shell. Flavour of stewed apple, blood orange and yeast. Thin to medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Lively fizz. Quite a strange beer - it’s very dark and malty for a Saison.
