Rhubarb Saison
Brewed with renowned writer, Melissa Cole, author of bestseller "Let Me Tell You About Beer". We have used world famous Yorkshire rhubarb to add a hint of sourness. There is earthy spice from the Saison yeast, and fresh vanilla to bring out the sweet notes from a blend of Noble Central European hops. A rich golden colour, this naturally hazy Saison is truly a world beer, refreshing on the palate, with a long, satisfying bittersweet finish. Due to popular demand, Siberia will now join our permanent list in bottle and keg. Siberia is now exported and available in the US

A pale golden beer which remains quite cloudy after its been poured and holds a thin head. A mild, sweet smell which I assume was of rhubarb while the flavour is fairly mild but quite distinctive all the same. For both taste and strength its one Id have a few of over an afternoon rather than get stuck into for an evening. Very nice though.

JackMandarin (259) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle from Morrisons. Pours with a haze. Dirty gold. Not much of a head. Aroma has a gentle sourness. Bit of farmyard funk. Real cider vinegar. Apple. Light hay. Taste has a biscuity malt sweetness. Herbal hops. Apple candy. Some green apple sharpness also. Quite tart. Soft sourness. Dry, slightly astringent towards the finish. A little thin in body and restrained carbonation. The abv doesnt show. Not the best Saison Ive tried but quaffable anyhow.

Sparf (247) - stersund, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2016
Ltt syrlig, fruktig, lite kllaraktig jstdoft. Ljus, gyllene frg. Disig brygd och ett smbubbligt skum som sjunker snabbt till en fin hinna. Syrlig, med dragning t sur, smak. Ingen beska att tala om. Tunn smak med en ltt otrevlig karaktr. Strv, torr munknsla.

scotty (1160) - SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2016
Clean darkish gold in colour, white head is thin, nose is of spice/sweet apple crumble quite pleasant! Palate is medium bodied with spicy notes, quite tart, especially on the longish finish. Good beer, although I couldnt pick out any specific rhubarb characters other than the tartness. Liked it!

nearbeer (4993) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2016
500 ml. bottle bb 03 2015. Mostly clear orange-amber body has some mild bubbly activity that supports a lasting film of cream. Nose is lightly tart fruit and caramel apple. Flavor is the same with a finish of pecan, pithy wood and a hint of smoke. Medium body has smooth medium carbonation and a very drinkable balance. Interestingly different and tasty.

Beer5000 (6027) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2016
330 ml bottle. Almost clear golden body with a moderate sized white head. Mild fruity aroma with spicy yeast, quite typical for a Belgium Saison with some rhubarb in addition. Flavor is sweet, mild malt, some fruitiness in general, hint of rhubarb. Quite smooth and easy drinkable, not very complex and not particular sour.
