We gave it the name ’23 Trees’ as a dedication to replace 23 ancient trees that were needlessly felled by our neighbour on the bordering land to our Organic farm on the Black Isle. We love our surroundings, welcome the birds and the bees and work hard to maintain our land so that wildlife can thrive naturally. We will not stand for the irresponsible destruction of 23 perfectly good broad-leaf trees which provided a habitat for hundreds of species, oxygen we breathe and beautiful century-old character to our environment. We will replace these 23 Trees and will plant 200 more in their place.

Bottle at home. Not much yeasty funk - it's billed as a citra saison so as you'd expect much more hoppy and bitter, but for me it really doesn't work: the two styles compete rather than compliment and the result is a murky, bitter mess. Not for me at all.

livingasghosts (34) - London, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 Pours hazy yellow, medium white head. Aroma citrus, lime, zesty, straw. Taste reflects this, lemon and lime. Medium bodied. Low carbonation . Dangerously drinkable for its abv.

rodsquad (404) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle from JK Fine Foods. The beer looks really good. It’s clear copper gold with a fluffy off-white head and loads of bubbles shooting upwards in the glass. The nose is sweet and fruity to begin with apple and lemon before the Belgian spiciness with light pepper. Jelly babies is there too. With the initial sip you get lots of sharp fizz. It has a slightly slick medium body that feels lightened with the high carbonation. The flavours has toffee sweetness before the mild spices and fresh fruit clean things up. Sweet and fresh really is the name of the game here. This is an excellent super-refreshing saison from Black Isle.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2017
Keg @Salt Horse, Edinburgh, [Rating backlog 15.04.2017] Pours amber small white head. Nose is pine, tropical fruits, resin. slight orange zest. Taste is all of the above with a touch of spices as well.
