AlenomoreExceptional03 Apr 2010 Very nearly a perfect "copy" of a classic Belgium ale. In top class condition today.

The Churchill Tavern, Ramsgate, Kent

BlairGood04 May 2009 Typical Belgian style flavour to it. Quite sweet and easy drinking.
AndrewAcceptable21 Mar 2009 In good condition but just not my kind of beer. Wheat's for bread.
IanGood21 Mar 2009 It's a Belgian wit, good satsuma fruit

The Bull, Horton Kirby, Kent

DubbelExcellent27 Mar 2009 More 'estery' than the mouth of the Severn. (Sorry) A joy and wonderfully different.
DubbelExcellent21 Mar 2009 Had tempered down overnight and was now smoother, a bit clearer and much more approachable. Couldn't put it down.
DubbelExcellent20 Mar 2009 Lovely pale Belgian wheat style ale. Packed full of bitter hops and a distinct Saison yeasty aftertaste. Feels about 4% stronger than it actually is. Delightful.

The Evening Star, Brighton, East Sussex

IanGood20 Mar 2009 More of a wheat beer to me than a saison, cloudy gold/orange colour with lasting thin white hed. Very refreshing though. Bit of soap like a Belgian wit on the aroma. Reasonably fruity in mouth, tangerine/orange, touch of herb/spice. Good bit of tingle on the finish. Good intense fruit and spice. Very good wit, not sure it's a saison.
