Poured from 375ml/11oz bottle into a pint glass. Be careful pouring as I ended up with a 'beer floater' head.
Appearance was classic off yellow. The oversized head lasted for most of the drink.
First impression was of spice and this was confirmed on first taste.
I detected coriander and bouquet definitely opened as the beer warmed up in the glass.
The spice on the pallet clearly overrode the typical saison funk and really become pronounced on the back pallet towards the end of the beer.
Overall, being one of the first saisons I have critiqued I found it pretty good. If anything a little too spicy for my liking.

Exactly what I was hoping for with a Saison. Just a little bit of sweet and spice up front, with just enough hops to balance at the finish. Enough going on to keep me interested through the whole pint. Strong but still refreshing on a hot day - relatively high ABV but did not taste of alcohol. Would definitely get this again.
Serving type: on-tap
