Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate gin, citrus peel, and florals. It’s a golden-orange with a minimal white head that quickly fades to almost nothing with a few stray bubbles around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with tart citrus. The finish has moderate tart lemon, gin, and a touch of florals. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation.
Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with no head. Smells fruity - real fruity; like it’s treated with tropical fruits in the secondary, but apparently they’re elderberries or something like that. Medium to full-bodied with lazy carbonation. Tart, fruity and lightly spicy with a whisper of tannic bitterness. Lengthy, tart, raspy finish.

Bottle thanks to Neemo. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong gin and lemon zest. Medium mouth, gin, oak, lemon, funk, really enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a fleeting white head. Sour fruit aromas. Wacky, is this a gin barrel, with lots of floral notes. Average body and mouthfeel. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014

>> Full haze golden pour, weak foam. Nose is intense gin barrel, yellow rose, big botanicals. Oh baby. Taste is tart, big lemon, clean, light bodied, similar gin forward lighter saison type body much cleaner than the Saison Desay. Pure Gin barrel forward, very good. Salty, refreshing, mild chlorine. Overall, I feel like this a beer to showcase the gin barrel in every way. The Saison Desay did that, but had a harsh, chemical body. This one is really drinkable. -1 for the chlorine here and there, but overall, yummy.
>!< flashes of chlorine
