Hazy, peach coloured pour with a fluffy white head dissipating to a thin film. Looks good.

Spicy, musty aromas are pervasive on the nose here with tropical fruit and banana following. Nice.

Slightly dulled palate with lots of clove and good fruity esters. A touch of funk but there could be more. I'm not getting much if any quince through here which is a touch disappointing. Mildly tart with bits of sweetness sneaking through. Solid background bitterness and a touch of astringency as it warms.

Light mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation. Dry and crisp. A nice refreshing brew.

A tasty beer with enough going on. It could be more complex and perhaps falls just a little bit flat detracting from the interest of this beer.

Pours a pink grapefruit colour with a little bit of head at first, not just a white ring. Insanly hazy, thin but decent lacing. Looks very interesting, to say the least.

Very nice sour aroma, a lot of fruit, I assume it's quince although I'm not very familiar with that particular fragrance, seems kind of grapefruit-esque, with a distinct cinnamon fragrance and cloves as well, very spicy and sweet. That's damned nice, hell yeah.

Taste is very fruit, with a spicy cinnamon character behind it, flavours of apple and sugar cane, not much tartness really although the fruit character is fresh and tangy. Mouthfeel is nicely full and gritty with a lot of solid floaties adding a great unfiltered body to the fresh, organic flavours.

I'm digging this goddamn beer. What a great flavour - apple fruity, grainy, sweet and spicy. Four of my favourite food groups right there. This tastes great. Very refreshing and drinkable. I'm definitely a fan.

A very cloudy apple juice colour, with suspended flecks of orange, which tend to coalesce in the bottom of the glass. Some head but quite filmy. Lacing is ok though, a light sudsy patterning on the glass.

Nose is spicy and fruit-sweet, not unlike apple pie. In fact that's pretty much exactly what it smells like, sweet but tart, not a lot of notes from the saison. Certainly no barnyard funk. But its nice all the same.

Nice. There's a hint of funk on the palate, and the continuing sweet apple pie character from the quinces. Some bitterness on the very end cleans it up, and the lingering clove note seals the deal. Very smooth, although there's a note of phenols on the very end that skews it a bit. Otherwise very nice.

This is a very drinkable beer, and a wildly unique style. I have to say overall I approve a lot. I just wish there was a bit more saison funk, and a little less candied quince sweetness. Hooray for Aussie brewers doing something different!

I tried this breweries normal Saison ages ago and cant remember how it goes so wanted to try it again and suprisingly enough this was their new or seasonal saison that was out replacing its normal Saison and it comes in a nicely shaped 750ml brown bottle and its ABV is 6%,it pours a light honey/apricot colour with decent carbonation that leaves a nice two finger head and sporadic lacing,it has aromas of quince(obviously),mangoes and some yeasty spice characters too,it has a nice medium bodied mouthfeel with the quince flavour first to hit the tounge then followed by a belgian yeasty taste which is quite light compared to the quince taste first up,overall this beer is easy enough to drink but if your not a fan of fruit induced beers i would avoid but since i dont mind my fruit laced beers i could see myself enjoying it more on a hot summers day then tonight.

Sharp fruits, even for a saison. The Coing fruit adds a tart, stonefruit like flavour along with some dry pepper and lemon. Despite these quite appealing features there’s a piney sour character, albeit subtle, that points to a fault. Unfortunately this showed up on the BdG recently sampled.

A - Cloudy apple juice colour with a couple of centimetres of fluffy white head that falls away fairly quickly.
S - Spicy phenolic notes and fruity esters as well as some fruity notes possibly contributed from the Quince. Slighty musty with some light bready malt hints.
T - Much like the smell; spicy phenols, fruity notes verging on slightly tropical with a musty touch and light bread maltiness.
M - Fairly light bodied with medium to high carbonation. Powdery feel across the tongue. Lingering fruity taste.
D - Nothing earth shattering but another good beer from Bridge Road. Something I'd drink again.
