Can. Clear gold. Thick frothy head. Looks enticing.
Slightly sweet and sour aroma of fruit and silage. Mild spice noted (coriander and ginger).
Citrus discerned in the flavour which otherwise reflects the aroma. Bitter finish.
A rather harsh feel. Thin.

Canned in a crafty craft can and brewed for M&S
pours a clear pale wheat coloured body with big foaming head, not very saison eh?
very traditional saison aroma though, basil and lemon
very nicely spiced flavour
as good to Belgian saison as Cornish brie is to French

L - I was expecting this 5.9% beer to be darker, but it's mid-amber. Pours with a 1-finger white head slowly reducing to lacing.
S- I get coriander, and can't sense anything beyond that.
T- Crisp, a little sour, then a bit more sour. Some spicy/grapefruit comes up right at the end.
M- Crisp, dry, refreshing for sure. For this style of beer it's not a 'mega citrus/hop-bomb' like I've had a few of late, it's coming *towards* having some kind of balance.
O- I don't drink beer to experience grapefuit, so, interesting to try but I won't be buying it again.

Can, spiced saison

Pours gold, decent head that collapses to film. Pin bright.

Aroma brings the cinnamon and ginger and zest. It's quite interesting.

Taste has more ginger and cinnamon also hop bitterness. Doesn't quite work here. Not as dry a finish as I'd like. Med body, above average carb.

Would be better with food I think, instead of on its own.
