Cask, handpump The Penny Black, JDW Bicester, Saturday 7th December 2013 Pours warm amber with thin white head, a little soapy, I even pick up a little radox, pine maybe showing. Not sure I get the pumpkin but this is truly gorgeous stuff. Excellent beer, quite thick in mouth, bitterness really hangs in there, bit dry at end and lengthy bitterness. Very nice, not sure that it is that Saisony but it’s good nonetheless. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8 maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 18/12/2013. Golden with a frothy, white head. Yeasty, stone fruits, a perfumed, floral edge and dryish finish. No evidence of the advertised pumpkin, but a pleasant Belgian styled beer nonetheless. The_Osprey (8440) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Cask at JDW Hammersmith. Clear orange colour, still, white foamy head, leaves decent lacing. Smell is toned down - getting some sweet fruity esters, malts. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste - watery malts, slight chemical, apple. Finishes with ash and yeast. Very drying. I was left feeling that this one could have been a lot better.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Cask handpull, The Felix Holt, Nuneaton, 17/12/13. Clear brass with a snowy white mousse lining the glass. Ripe satsuma, green peppery herb nose. Strong bitterness behind perfumed yeast, satsuma and perfumed coriander seed. Clinging bitterness with peppery alcohol hints. Not sure the bitterness fits the perfume. Good, although more a generic spiced Belgian blonde with an extra tweak of hop than a saison.
