Bottle from Utobeer. Pours cloudy, opaque, dirty amber, thin white head. Nose is interesting! Fresh limes, pine, lemon, grapefruit, wheaty malt, touch farmyard, citrousy. Taste is citrousy lemon, touch sour yeast, farmyard, lime juice, wheaty creamy malts. It works. Very refreshing. On the tongue is citrous sours with yeast sours. Really works. Tongue tangy on the finish. spacecube (1732) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2013
Pours light golden, slightly hazy. In the aroma yeasty notes, banana, coriander & herbs, with citrus hops. Well balanced with a slightly bitter finish. Nice saison. jamestulloch (4158) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Aroma: Yeast with tropical fruit notes of mango and pineapple.
zacgillbanks (5299) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2013
Appearance: Murky amber body with a thin white head that slowly fades. Light lacing.
Taste: Underripe citrus flavours and nice tropical fruit notes too. Quite yeasty.
Palate: Medium body with an oily oily texture. Light carbonation.
Overall: I think this is better than their Spiced Saison because of the additional tropical fruit note and its greater overall intensity of flavour.
A cloudy yellow-orange beer that has orange marmalade and tangerine flavours with earthy, spicy fruity notes followed by sweet lemon and slight woody hops on the very dry finish. Scopey (14992) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle at Partizan. It pours cloudy golden orange with a small white head. The nose is pine, juicy orange, tangerine, light spice, dough and herbal notes. The taste is orange peel, spice, earth, pine, hay, resinous and faint herbal with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Flavoursome and well balanced. Tasty

Really nice. They’ve done saisons really well at Partizan. Struggling to think of other top UK brewers that have done them. Can’t. Why not? Long afters in this, which starts saisony, then goes through some citrus peel before finishing with some IPA bitterness. Sounds great but misses a little with that finish somehow. Clearly, I am a twat. Dommod2011 (706) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Partizan produce perfectly pleasant palate pleasers. Silky, sumptuous, super saison. Must have good gravity. Leighton (21513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle at home in London, picked up at the brewery. Pours foggy gold with a small, creamy white head. The nose is beautiful, lots of grapefruit, peach, dry pine needles, mango. Light to medium sweet flavor, some mellow yeast, dry pale malts, crunchy straw, pithy citrus, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty clean to finish, some what dry, hints of sandy yeast, lots of juicy fruits, tropical fruits. Semi-ripe citrus, orange, clementine, grapefruit, peach. Great stuff. Extremely drinkable.

33cl bottle. Pours hazy light orange with big and fluffy white head; plenty of lacing throughout. Aroma gives lots of peach, pungent yeast, blood orange, and grass. Taste showcases some juicy mango and tangerine before the yeast takes hold and dries everything out: lots of slightly funky Saison yeastiness, and dry white wine notes. Crisp and very dry finish. Lingering orange and citrus zestiness. Very good. Theydon_Bois (19805) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle split at the brewery, 30/03/13.
Hazed golden with a thin white head that clears to a film.
Nose carries floral hops, spice, grass, orange pith, light pineapple.
Taste comprises orange sherbet, hops, grapefruit, mineral tones, spice, grass.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, dry crisp and refreshing in the finish.
A hopped up saison, not especially true to the style but a very decent offering none the less!
