750ml Bottle part of a private import

Appearance - Gold colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Breads/grains, lemons, peppery spice mix

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains, lemons and a fruitiness like strawberries or apricots perhaps.

Overall - A really interesting taste going on.. super complex and lip smacking good. More of a fruity flavour than I was expecting and not as much spice as I would have figured. A beer well worth seeking out to see its nuances.

A - Pours cloudy, opaque, medium orange gold color with a massive three fingered pure white head, and a generous amount of carbonation.

S - Lots of barnyard fun in the aroma, wet hay, lemons, and some honey.

T - Loads of wet hay, barnyard fun, wet blanket, lemon honey, and finishes with a wet blanket barnyard funkiness.

M - Medium body, active carbonation, thicker than many Saisons I've had.

O - Complex spiciness with no alcohol presence. An absolutely gorgeous beer.
