Review and Tasting


Sampled on 12/12/2016

Appearance:

Hazy, sandy golden amber with thick retentive off-white head and light lacing.

Aroma:

Malty – white bread crust, saison yeastiness and faint strawberry jam.

Taste:

Light to medium-bodied. Dry and lightly spicy with more white bread crust maltiness, tart citrusy yeast and jammy strawberry.

Aftertaste:

Refreshing tart dry finish with white breadiness and lingering spice.

Overall:

Don’t expect a sweet strawberry flavoured beer. This is a tart and dry saison with light white pepper spice and jammy strawberry.
