Winter Farmhouse Ale

Beer #3054 is a saison brewed by Sailors Grave in Victoria, Australia. Fermented on Shiraz Lees and Rose Bramble, this is a fruity but dry saison, berries upfront (certainly raspberries) and a hint of banana in the background. A touch…

Petite Mort

Beer #3031 is a saison brewed by Garage Project in Wellington, New Zealand. An underwhelming saison / farmhouse ale, spicy, quite dry, and typically funky Brett. Not bad. The bottle size is 330ML with an alcohol content of 5.30% (containing…

Saison du Nectar

Beer #3017 is a saison brewed by North End in New Zealand. A fairly fruity but only lightly tarty saison, brewed with dried mango and conditioned on peaches. A touch on the thin side but drinkable all the same. The…

Summer Saison

Beer #3009 is a saison brewed by Bacchus Brewing in Queensland, Australia. Coconut greets you upon opening the bottle, and it persists into the taste too, certainly more than a hint as suggested on the bottle label. It’s dry, like…

Hunnybee

Beer #2873 is a saison brewed by Garage Project in Wellington, New Zealand. A solid farmhouse ale aka saison, brewed in collaboration with Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Tarty, a touch salty, fruity. There’s a lavish dose of Lavender honey in there…

Saison

Beer #2808 is a saison brewed by Exit Brewing in Dandenong, Victoria, Australia. My second from Exit Brewing and a big improvement on their amber ale (though it’s probably not fair to compare). It’s sweet and spicy, a little citrusy…

Saucy Saison

Beer #2714 is a saison brewed by Sauce Brewing in N.S.W., Australia. My first from this brewery and my first saison for quite a while. It’s extremely carbonated, I don’t know if it’s meant to be like that, but it…

Standard

Beer #2508 is a saison brewed by Prairie Artisan Ales in Oklahoma, America. Not my favourite saison by a long shot. Tarty lemon, some pepperyness, it just tastes a little bit odd to me. The bottle size is 355ML with…

Hibiscus Saison (V1.5)

Beer #2455 is a saison brewed by Bacchus Brewing in Queensland, Australia. Having never had V1.0 I didn’t know what to expect from this saison. The 11.4% ABV is hidden very well, mostly by the tartiness, which is all down…

Red Duck Duck Punt

Beer #2353 is a saison brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. I took a punt on this for the third beer of the evening, or second if you discount Tun Light and I probably should because I really didn’t…
