On cask at Volo

Hazy light brown colour, some orange coming through, half a finger of white head with some lace. Smell is lightly yeasty then dominated with tea, similar to iced tea, some pepper and spicy notes as well as some fruity/jammy scents. Taste is initially of black tea, generous spice bill, some lemon notes, mild yeast and lots of floral flavours in the finish, grew on me while drinking and went from 3.5 to 4 back to 3.5 before finishing at a 4 for taste. Light feel, light cask carbonation and fairly smooth on the palate. quite drinkable and definitley one that grew on me, fairly different saison then I have been used to but quite good.
