330ml Bottle. Pours a pale orange body with a creamy, off-white head that settles as a fully lasting layer, good lacing. Aroma is tangerine, banana and Belgian yeast. Taste has peppery hops with citrus, orange and spicy. Aftertaste has a mild bitterness with citrus & peppery spice. Overall a very enjoyable beer

Drank from my Duvel tulip. An English take on a Saison ! that is unusual,

A - Pours the classic saison look with it being cloudy and honeycomb colour. The head reduces to a film and laces.

S - Very hoppy with some sweetness in the background

T - Has and almost pale ale type flavour, the belgian character is not there.The hop profile is way too eminent for this style.

M - Light to Medium body with low to medium carbonation. maybe a touch thin

O - I'm not sure what hops were used in this beer but they are a misfit. Every aspect of this beer says saison except for the slightly overt hoppiness.

Murky yellow. Little to no head. Bits floating around.
Mainly grapefruit aroma with some other fruits. Smells lovely.
Not what I expected in the taste. Spicy, astringent and very bitter.
Not for my palate I'm afraid.

Cloudy dirty blonde with a tower of loose pitted white froth and a steady stream of bubbles up the middle and lots of crust.
Pencil eraser, flowers, bubble gum and lemon custard on the nose.
Sweet pastry dough and angel food cake, a big rubbery phenol tang with some barnyard, then soap, lemon balm and some pretty rough citrus and aspirin hops.
Mild papaya finish and lingering white pepper spice.
Light, crisp, slight cling.

Lower ABV, or should I say more traditional, than most saisons these days. Yet some how manages to be hard work. Big flavors, but they're all over the place - it's a rocket dog of a yeast that they used. A grower, but still pretty rough.

Can't hang with this, but I should just really stop drinking Sorachi Ace beers.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a St. Thomas goblet.

Pours a hazy golden colour with a lively white head. Tons of sediment.

Smells quite hoppy and yeasty.

Tastes of light malts, fruity, peppery and citrusy hops, and a lot of yeast. Hops and (mostly) yeast are a bit too overpowering, leading to a slightly unpleasant taste. Light - mid bodied, very fizzy.

Overall an okay beer, not a great saison from my experience though.
