Rich and cloudy golden-yellow in colour, with fine, lasting head, this saison (pale ales that are fermented warm and historically made in the summer) is a seasonal offering from the irascible brewers at Nickel Brook in Burlington.

Spice on the nose with a hint of orange and a trace of coriander, thanks to the Amarillo hops and the non-traditional WPL565 yeast.

Gentle malt flavour and further fruitiness on the tongue, and a light mouthfeel perfect for summer swilling.

A balanced finish with a bright bite of acidic tang that leaves you ready for more.

Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
