Tap at foundrys brewpub.
Fresh, wheat nose with a bit of soapy sourness.
Taste is surprisingly thin and watery. Quite nicely bitter, but the hops sadly doesn’t stand a chance of lifting the beer, thin as it feels. A bit of wheat sweetness, slight sourness and lots of bitterness, but thats about it..
I really hoped for better.. Beer5000 (6736) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2013
Cask @ The Foundry. Unclear orange body with a nice off-white head. Pleasant aroma of hay, flowers and perfume. Flavor is mild malty, spicy, fruity and floral. Fine balanced body with a delicate aftertaste leaving just enough bitterness at the end. A truly fine and style appropriate Saison. Leighton (22327) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2013

Hazed light golden with a thin white film and frothy white bubbles at the extremeties.
Nose is farmy, soured fruits, grass, spice, touch of apricot and orange, quite acrid - great !
Taste follows, bitter and soured fruits, apple, apricots, orange, grassy, farmy, funky.
Medium in body with soft carbonation lending towards a bitter dry finish.
A most decent saison, probably the best I recall drinking from a UK brewer !
