A Mes rate. Bottle at the Rake thanks as always to The Cad.SM_Jenkins (48) - Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Rather dark for a Saison with a decent white-ish head. Tastes very little like a Saison too. Ok, there is some faint hints of what you would expect in the background but it’s all somewhat over powered by the ginger and orange peel. Lots of other spicy notes too. A very basic but interesting beer. Not spectacular but went down well enough on a pleasant evening out the back of the Rake. Yet another fantastic label by Johanna by the way.

14th May 2010. On tap at the Rake. Well glad I didn’t have to go the Tate to sample this very average Brewdog. Saison? Stroll On morelike! Clear dark amber beer. Light but crisp palate turning a little soft. A Weird brew this. It’s a sweet shandy with a soft vanilla edge and then a little ginger leading some grim bittering spice. Just doesn’t hang together. Drinkable but every mouthful jars with it’s oddness. Love Brewdogs continual innovation - but that level of doing something new runs a risk that sometimes it’s going to come up short and this is such an occasion.

375ml Bottle - Gold/amber in colour. Hoppy aroma with hints of ginger and vanilla. Fruity, hoppy and slightly tangy taste with hints of tea, vanilla and a slightly warming ginger finish.

375ml bottle from Tate Modern, pours golden yellow/amber, white long-lasting head. Nose; apricots, plums, hoppy. Palate; dominant ginger, bitter lemon, sherbet, short finish. Light body, sharp, mod carbonation. Disappointing! trapped (3147) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 7, 2010
Floral aroma, small head, light amber color, clear body, resin taste, smooth finish. A nice beer for Tate Modern. I was lucky to buy one of the limited production bottles. sm89walt (2065) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2010
Keg - The Rake, London. Poured a lively copper/amber with a loose, fizzy beige head. Loaded with ginger on the nose, plenty of spice too as well as tea, herbal tones and mid-fruits. Again, lots of that ginger come through on the tongue with some background tartness. Dry and crisp, full carbonation, light to medium in body. Not quite what I was expecting but I didn’t mind it.

Cask at the Rake, 14th May 2010. Orangey dark amber. Quite lively with a flavour of spices, ginger and oranges. Lacks hops (never thought I’d write that about a Brewdog beer!) and the aroma was weak. Not very drinkable and I didn’t get any Belgian yeast character. A surprise miss from Brewdog. tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2010 Consumed on tap at the Rake. Ginger, tea, earthy yeast, spices etc. Really miffed at this one. Was expecting a fruity summer beer but it was different. Not too sure if it was off. Sorry guys you usually make excellent beer but this left me confused.
