Dehydrated pee colour, fruity nose of pears and melon. Too big, too much to say for it’s self. Maybe more the style i have issue with rather than the beer. Too much alcohol for me, don’t know why brewers want to pack Saison’s with so much alcohol, it makes them cloying and sweet. Saison’s were meant to be a light and refreshing summer drink. Did not enjoy.

Bottle brought from M&S. Nice deep orange appearance with a white head. Very wheat and citrus nose. Tropical palate with a dry finish. One of the better Saisons I've had! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeardedAvenger (969) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2017
Bottle. Reduced to a Quid at M&S, Byfleet. A musty hay and citrus. Apple skin. A hazy amber. Thin bubbly white head. Light bitter tinged sour. Hazy acidic fruit. Marmalade. Light bodied. Thin but slick. Average carbonation. Low key finish. Restrained. Pleasant enough.

Bijl (752) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2017
Goudgeel, troebel, voldoende koolzuur en witte schuimkraag. Aroma: Moutig, tarwe, Citrus, fruit, banaan, peer. Meer zoetig dan het licht zure van een saison....ik vermoed de Belgische gist die het verschil maakt. Smaak: In de smaak komt wel iets meer grassig en zuur naar voren maar toch ook weer iets zoet. Duidelijk zure van tarwe, fruitig van appel, peer en banaan en veel redelijke bitter met een scherp randje van spicy hops. Prima dorstlesser. Onder medium body, voldoende prikkel van koolzuur, zacht en redelijk vol mondgevoel, afdronk is spicy, grassig en redelijk bitter.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2017 Very tasty beer with hoppy, almost floral notes. Goes down easy. Not like other saisons that I have tried; more similar to a smooth pale ale, I would say. I've not been diss appointed by this brewery yet. Sublime.

Alusmamuts (2061) - LATVIA - AUG 22, 2017
Amber with medium white head. Nice aroma with yeast notes. Good hops bitterness medium old fruits sourness and just some sweetness on the background. Bitter and sour aftertaste. Simply nice!

Off white rocky head stayed on a hazy golden body. Sweet citrus, yeast, fresh, earthy aroma. Medium bodied, highly carbonated on the palate & dry on the back. Very soft. Sweet fruity tastes with haribos, banana & yeast followed by bitter dry finish

john44 (3215) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle. Brewed Mar 2016; BB Mar 2018; Drank July 2017 - Hazy yellow gold in colour. Small foamy white head. Good lacing. Good hop bitterness, grassy hops. Lemon and orange citrus fruity. Spicy; coriander. Yeasty; sedimented. Toasty malts, wheaty. Moderately bitter hoppy fruity spicy throughout. Quite dry. Dry bitter hoppy finish. Liked this. Nice hoppy saison. (2017-07)

3.5
AleRider78 (1388) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2017
Pours a very thin layer of fizzy head and has a cloudy orange yellowy appearance. Weak lacing. Mild grains, toasty and nutty malt aromas. Very light earthy hops, barely noticeable, as well. Flavours of barley malts, wheats, tangerines and blood oranges. Some spices make an appearance in the finish. Medium bodied. faint carbonation. Slight prickly sensation and a slick warming mouthfeel. Odd combination of malts and hops. Pretty good but one bottle is sufficient.

A good refreshing saison. Crisp, light and refreshing. I enjoyed with a curry where it offered a better counterbalance than a lager would. A really nice beer and would drink again, especially in hot weather.
