Pours a straw-gold colour, slight haze in the body. Head is cream-white, quite foamy but retaining well. Nice-looking saison.

Smells quite metallic, with a Belgian edge. Quite phenolic and to be honest a little lacking in saisony funk. Slight spice to it. Quite pleasant Belgian smells, but not particularly saisony.

Taste is fairly fruity, with plenty of complex tang and a little bit of organic funk on the mid-to-late palate. Bitter spice, Belgian phenols finish up. Yeah, there's a bit of that barnyard saison character, but it's not big. Decent, complex Belgian brew otherwise.

Nice body, nice texture. Bitty, full, but goes down easily.

Drinks like a saison but doesn't emphasise the saison notes enough on the palate. Otherwise I could really like this beer.

Had on-tap at the Italiano SpecTapular at the Local Taphouse in Sydney.

Pours a bright, hazy golden colour, with a light white head. Very solid body. Spidery lace forms as the beer goes down. Not bad.

Nose is bright and spicy with some Belgian roundness coming through. Some pungent astringent herbs add a bit of interest, above a mild, smooth lemony character. Not bad.

Taste is similar, but lighter. The clean herbs come through giving a bite, but the roundness manages to smooth everything over. It's pretty clean and light. Not bad. Feel is clingy but ultimately clean.

Overall, this isn't a bad beer. There's not a whole lot going on, but it has something to say at least.
