A 330ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2015, so it's a little out of date. Picked up a while back from Trembling Madness in York. Described on the label as a dry-hopped saison and features a very bizarre image.

A: Poured into a cervoise. Bottle conditioned. A hazy pale-gold hue with fine sediment and medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Nice lacing.

S: Aroma of bright, fruity hops with hints of white grape, lime, citrus, mild tropical fruit, saison yeast, earthiness, subtle grain and faint stewed hops. A satisfying blend - lovely.

T: Tastes of subdued yeast notes with a lingering, bone-dry finish. Notes of fruity saison yeast, earthiness, subtle citrus, a hint of white grape, mustiness, faint grain and stewed leaves. Highly attenuated, followed by a twinge of sourness and a delicate bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and very dry, with prickly carbonation and light body. Quite astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of earthy yeast, subtle fruity hop notes and stewed leaves/cardboard.

O: A pretty good effort. Looks alright, while the aroma is a great blend of fruity yeast and hop notes. The flavour lacks character; the yeast dominates and little else comes across. Body is OK. Perhaps suffering a tad from hop fade but otherwise a rather nice brew. Shame the hops don't hit the palate hard enough. That said, an easy-drinking saison that is worth sampling if you stumble across it.

Pours gold with a large head.
Nose shows pineapple, saison farmhouse notes and spicy hops.
Very dry flavours with some mineral notes competing with the spicy hops.

330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown

Poured a nice light golden orange colour with a slight haze. White head poured pretty big, thick and fluffy with a pock marked topping then faded slowly to patchy covering... quite a lot of carbonation rushes to the surface... some good patchy lacing...

Aroma - Nice light toasted biscuit malts, spicy tart fruits (apples, pears, light lemon zest), some brett hints, grassy, hay notes, light nuttiness, metallic notes, quite floral, some talcum powder, quite yeasty, light caramel sweetness, faint rubbery hints...

Taste - Quite a lot of spicy yeastiness, tart (also overripe?) fruits (apples, pears, light grapefruits), again some brett, slight vegetal notes, metallic, some chalkiness, salty notes, light toasted biscuit malts, bready, light floral honey sweetness, faint caramel, grassy hops...

Feel - Pretty sharp and dry... Light body... Very quaffable...

Overall - A pretty good saison. Nothing groundbreaking but well worth a try...
