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.

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.
