Best Before: 04/2018.

(4.25) A: Attractive orange-copper colour with a sizeable puffy head. Commendable retention and wavy lacing.

(4.5) S: Straw, cloves, orange, grapefruit/lemon pith, sweeter mango, mothballs, honey, and a variety of spices. A wonderfully smooth and mellow aroma with bold juicy and spice qualities. One of the best farmhouse aromas I’ve experienced to-date.

(4.25) T: Tart grapefruit/lemon, cloves, straw, pepper, honey, and faint banana. As this warms there are some orchard fruit qualities including apple and pear. Pleasantly tart (nearing sour) with a diverse mix of flavours that are very funky. Dry and crisp would be an understatement.

(4.25) M: Medium bodied with a moderate-higher carbonation that works well.

(4.25) D: This is a fantastic and unique farmhouse ale (with brettanomyces) that I was very impressed with – across all categories. I’m glad I heeded that stranger’s advice in the beer aisle to give this a try – probably the best advice I’ve ever received from a stranger?

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Served from a 750ml badly waxed bottle into a Hill Farmstead stemmed Tulip.

Appearance- Hazy orange/gold with huge three finger white head that shows no sign of leaving.

Smell- Brett, apples, pear, lemons, grass, musty yeast, light spice. Absolutely beautiful smelling beer. I could sit here smelling this all day.

Taste- Light tartness coming from the brett. Apples and pears abound. Heavy grassy earth tones. Light lemony biscuit notes. Similar to Arthur. No hint of the 8% at all. Gorgeous.

Mouthfeel- Medium to full carbonation with medium to light dryness. No pucker.

Overall- One of the best saisons I've ever had. This is so good. It might even top Arthur...
