Pours with almost no head, just a tiny sticky lacing. Golden orange.
Fruity hops are big in the smell, also vanilla, honey, sweet citrus.
Taste is really fruity, with lots of sweet citrus (tangerine, lime, lots of orange peel, grapefruit), some exotic pineapple, a bit of sour cherries, apricots and banana. Pale malts, but nice sweet honey, with floral notes too. Spicy with some clove, vanilla, prickly peppercorn. Big herbal finish, as expected from the hops, spicy and bitter. There are hints of green grass and hay, but the barnyard funkiness of a saison is lacking.
Almost flat body, with a low fizz helping the pepper pinch. Somewhat buttery, smooth, a bit too oily maybe.
The yeasty feel gets the "Belgian" part right, the hops are typical BrewDog, but not a "saison". Tasty.

Bright brass with a streamer of bubbles up the middle and snow white froth that fades to foam pretty quick.
Flowers, gentle funk, bananas and tangerine peel.
Country white loaf dough and candy sugar sweetness, and mild clove and white pepper hit, then spicy white grape and candied orange fighting it out on the hop front.
Rubbery yeast comeback and lime linger.
Crisp, fizzy, light.
Amarillo and Nelson present and accounted for, I could see the honey, maybe the orange peel, but not the black peppercorns. Not sure why'd you'd spice a saison like a wit, anyway. Overall pretty mild for a mashup - not overly yeasty or hoppy. But round and interesting and easy, so no complaints.
Nice drinker, but not a standout Belgian IPA.

This beer had such an interesting flavor that, to me, was so much like something from my childhood, that I had to tell the world what flavor I got... Liquified Flintstones Vitamins. There was a touch of fruity hops, too. But I could barely stomach it. The visual of drinking a lot of vitamins was too much for me.

330ml bottle, Good Spirits Co (Glasgow, £2.80):
Golden straw colour with a fomay looking, half cm head that holds pretty well over the opening minutes.
Tarty and sour to begin with, there is some citrus and lemon plus a helping of yeast and a few nondescript, summery fruits. A good smell but not the most complex saison out there.
Orange and apricot notes to begin along with some strongish citrus flavours and a hint of sourness along with the tarty bits from the nose. There is some lighter yeast as well and an assortment of fresh fruits too.
Spicy with some bitterness and a medium body that boasts solid, strong carbonation. There is a few touches of sweetness throughout from the fruits.
A mixed back really and didn't really strike me as a great beer although it was quite enjoyable and relatively easy to drink. The taste was nice but the beer didn't do much to actually grab my attention and seemed pretty average throughout.

Pours a pale straw color, clear, and wit ha very small and quickly disappearing white head.
There are citrusy hops in the aroma, slightly sweet as well.
The taste is initially slightly sweet, but immediately a hard bitter taste kicks in. A very strong tasting beer, but still drinkable.
