Had on tap at the brewery.

Pours a pale gold colour, maybe a touch of haze. No head left, which is a shame (Chris the brewer tells me they need to change dishwasher liquid). It looks pretty bland, really.

Smell picks up a lot of that slack. Lovely aromatic, organic barnyard funk with notes of rubber, some fresh lychee, rosewater and big peachy stonefruit at the back. Summery and fresh and lovely; could maybe lean a bit heavier on the true saisony notes, but still very enjoyable.

Taste unfortunately dips a bit from the aromatics. Bit light on the funk, with more of a German banana ester. Spice notes, clove and aniseed as well and a touch of nutmeg. Light rubber on the back. Pleasant beer, but a little lacking in the big saison notes the nose promised.

Light carbonation sizzle, a bit drying towards the back. Not bad.

Decent beer, but could be improved as a saison.
