Half, from keg at Cask Pub & Kitchen during the pre-GBBF event with The Kernel Brewery. Unclear, orange-golden body, film-like layer at the top. Aroma of spiced oranges. Wheat, citrus peels and lighter notes of yeast in flavour. Fresh tart-fruity ending. Soft in the mouth. Complex and likable brew (London, 01.08.2011). thornecb (5946) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pours hazy gold into a tulip. White micro head with excellent retention barely recedes. Lemon and resin aromas. Soft with sweet caramel and sour lemon front to back. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2011
Pours from the bottle bright amber orange with a massive frothy head. Slghtly hazy. Smells quite fruity, bit of orange and apricot, and quite boozy. Also a bit peppery. Lightly bitter taste, and slightly herbal. Fruitiness is a bit sharper in the taste compared to the aroma. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice beer but doesn’t have that refreshment factor you would expect from a saison. Almost veering towards tripel territory with the booziness. downender (8687) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle. Hazy amber with a decent white head. Aroma of apricots, at ouch of caramel and peppery hops. Flavour was similar with a floral edge and decent, dry finish. Good. ekstedt (6843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2011

Hazy yellow colour with creamy head. Peppery, fruity nose with notes of aniseed. Spicy, peppery in flavour with aniseed in flavour. Dry, bitter and fruity. A different Saison that might lack in funk but it’s really nice. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2011
