StueyD (1583) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
A mid orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A floral hit on opening the bottle, this then dissipates to allow a fruity hop aroma to come through, there is also a mild, slightly smoky malt aroma later on. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is sour, floral and grassy, and pithy citrus fruit, a tad salty, then a light smoky malt flavour comes through. The finish continues the sourness in a lingering conclusion. Bottle purchased from the brewery’s stall at the 2014 Fakenham Food Festival. SilverfoX (871) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2014
smells like fruity nettles, a light brown colour with a tan foamy head, bit of bitterness then a salty aftertaste. another quality offering from the brewery! Garrold (5278) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
750ml bottle from the brewery. 7.0%. Hazy, dark gold. Film of white head. Bready. Spicy. Light smokiness. Hint of flinty mineral. Taste is mineral dry. Fairly bitter. Full, chewy palate, with plenty of that spiciness. Finish is light dry, and lengthy bitter. Don’t get much in the way of elderflower, possibly it’s drowned out by the chewy yeast? Still a very drinkable saison, that comes across fresh, lively, and natural. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014

Hazy deep amber beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and crisp and dry. Mild fine carbonation. LIttle generic floral sweetness. Fresh elderflower on top. Light tangy orange peel. Light finish. Nicely joined up saison with a great touch of fresh elderflower.
The elderflower really comes through in the aroma, pours a hazy orange. Light spicing, and only a light Saison flavour. Drinking it mid winter, would be fantastic in summer, with an outdoor lunch.
