330ml bottle BB Jun 2020. Hazy amber with big rocky white head. Aromas of fresh bread, pepper, clove, indistinct citrus, a little bubblegum. Taste is sweeter than anticipated - cracker malt, honey, spicy phenolics, white wine (nelson sauvin?), tangerine, pear, some barnyard character. Light to medium bodied, oily, prickly carbonation. Tasty but would be more refreshing if more highly attenuated. Muggus69 (2831) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2017
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 6/2020
Pale orange body with haze, white head.
Spicy aroma - pepper, clove, wood, dried herbs, apricot, ripe peach, dried orange, some tropical notes.
Medium body, fair bit of sort of chewy malt texture - not quite a Saison body-wise.
Body starts of kind of bread doughy, becoming peachy/apricoty, finishing with plenty of woody/earthy spice & pepper, reasonably bitter.
Its alright - sort of wish it were more Saison-y
