Purchased for a friend who was nice enough to share with me based entirely on the fact that I thought they'd like the bottle. Pours orange-amber with a decent foamy head, good lacing on the glasses. Smell of grass, wheat, pepper, phenolic.
Taste is chalky/minerally, bright with a slight sourness, floral & herbal with a light hint of anise or something along those lines. Clean but with a building bitterness as you drink more.
Well-carbed, dry, quite drinkable. Lacking a certain X-factor that would push it to the next level but a quality saison from a brewery I'd never heard of. Good show.

Pours amber with a lasting head.
Nose shows floral, grassy, spicy and herbal hops along with some Belgian-like spicy phenols. Some light malt underneath provideding some sweetness.
Similar flavours in terms of hops, big spicy and herbal notes. The Belgian notes are still there too, giving it a saison character. Some sweet clean malt underneath followed by an assertive bitterness.
Nice moderately-high carbonation.
Pretty solid stuff.

Turbid apricot with a hefty white head. Good staying power and strong lace lattice.
Nose is dominated by musty plastic phenolics that are too close to dirt to be appetising. There's some sweet malt and estery notes battling behind it.
Flavours still suffer from the same, but less so. Some honey sweetness punches through a little more and is joined by peppery hay notes.
Light to medium with above average carbonation. An odd to place dry bitterness that has more in common with a Pale Ale/IPA than a Saison.
Unsure what to make of this. The dominant dry, plasticy yeast character really kneecaps what might have been an interesting beer.
