So, with apologies to my sister and her history of poor decisions when lemon gin was involved, this is a remarkably good beer. It pours gold with a bountiful head of white foam. Nose is a terse lemon gin, with a disconsolate malt undertone. Taste wise, holy high school, the marriage of saison and panty remover is a happy one in this instance. Weird, but weirdly good.

Great looking beer with a creamy head that lingers and laces. The nose is very least T and tells you that if you like gin - you'll like this beer. I like gin.

The beer is crisp and clean and finishes very dry. It's light and refreshing. It tastes very good after a 15 km run.

650ml bottle, the brewery's current (I guess that means Spring?) seasonal, a Saison made with lemon and gin - I resolve to keep my panties unbunched and right where they belong.

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden amber colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, loosely foamy, and somewhat creamy eggshell white head, which leaves a bit of thick streaky and sudsy lace around the glass as it hastily recedes.

It smells of harsh gin notes straight off - juniper, indistinct spice, and bad decisions - bready pale and caramel malt, earthy, and sort of phenolic yeast, white and black pepper mill grist, a stale lemon rind thing, and gently leafy, weedy, and floral hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy wheat malt, a further free-range honeyed caramel sweetness, lemon zest, some reduced gin-adjacent botanicals - vegetal juniper and spruce needles, mostly - huddling yeast, bland table-top ground pepper, and more plain leafy, herbal, and grassy green hoppiness.

The bubbles are pretty low-key after their initial explosiveness, given their presently wan frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and so-so smooth, as the yeast, lemon gin esters, and actual hops all seem to not give a shit about their running roughshod here. It finishes off-dry, lots of varied malt, honey, and zesty fruit hanging around to counter any lingering green astringencies.

Well, they more or less nailed it - if you absolutely had to mix the essences of Lemon Gin into a Saison, this is what one might imagine it would turn out like. I mean, it's not exactly a kitchen sink approach, and nor do I have any intention of tossing the rest of this down one, but, yeah, you really have to be into the guest flavours to consider taking this one out for a second date.
