Gravicask (CWAF2017)
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 theres 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.

Ktwse (4414) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016

jamestulloch (3860) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2016
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 - its very dark and malty for a Saison.

Mjp12 (1655) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Light saison spice aroma, this is far darker, and more malty than most saisons. The spices added to the beer dominate the finish, so it lacks a refreshing saison finish

Sjohnh (873) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Nice, well balanced beer. Orange colour, slightly hazy with a healthy dose of white head. Palate is light but not too light. Plenty of saison yeast in both smell and taste. Hops work well with the spices, resulting in a fruity saison without tasting like a vat of ground coriander had been tipped in, as some of these beers do.

Garrold (4850) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2015
Pint bottle. Curious Hop, Otley. Hazy, deep orange. Film of messy, sticky, white head. Bready, yeasty saison character. Spicy, and herby, though Id never have picked out cardamom and coriander. Taste is sweet. Some bready dryness. Light spicy palate. A tad claggy sweet. Finishes with more of the sweetness. Ok. Possibly not up to the standard youd expect from Arbor.
