BlackHaddock (7518) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Cork and caged bottle (8% ABV) brought back from California by me to share with friends. 24th July 2017, five of us tucked into the beer during our monthly exchange evening in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Slight haze to the golden amber body, big white topping that gave off some decent lacing. Spiced aroma with some sour fruit esters. The taste is also spicy with some sour fruits, it’s peppery and fairly bitter flavour wise. A very pleasant Saison all round.
