77ships (11334) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2017
1/2 Pint Keg @ The Rake. Hazy orange, white head. Nose is oily vegetable BE esters, dry chemical. Taste is oily bitter esters, twigs, grass, fizzy, so bloody hard to drink, fizzy ester heavy, spoiled fruit, cleaning product finish. Like anything traditional cask is a million times easier to drink in the UK, these bloody saisons.

Towey1989 (3337) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2017
Can at BeerDock Leek. Pours a clear golden colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, slight pepper, a little biscuity malts and subtle spice. Taste of grapefruit, slight pepper, a little yeast, a hint of biscuity malts and subtle spice. Medium bodied and high carbonation. A dry, subtlety yeasty, spicy bitterness in the finish. The grapefruit is dominant but late on, so is the yeast. A solid saison with some interesting flavours. Bitter though.

tombyars (1776) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2017
Tasted this at the GRAF on the 23rd June 2017. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque orange amber with a thick foam head. Strong citrus fruits present in the long hoppy aroma. Weak resiny mouthfeel with carbonation present and poor lacing. Pale malt complex gives a light digestive malt base with a fruity backbone of pink grapefruit and gooseberry notes present in the aromatic floral hop component. Finish is hoppy with tart fruit leading to dry citrus pith in the mouth. Hides the 6.5% abv well as you would think this was 4.8%. Interesting Saison.

Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Can at home in London - sourced from Clapton Craft. Pours clear honey-gold with a frothy, white head. The aroma has some orange peel, wheat grains, faint yeast. Light sweet flavour with an ashy off note, some dried dough, melon, peach, husky grains. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with more of that ashy accent, rindy bitterness, some grass, orange peel. So so overall.
