I rather like this grapefruit and green tea Saison, its frothy head floating and foamy above its rich amber body.
The smell is fruity sweets with a hint of leafiness and taking a mouthful you’re first met by a solid caramel and brioche, doughnut, pretzel and honey malt body that is closely followed by a slap of fresh green herbal hops and a warm earthy yeast fug that’s pushed along by an alcoholic warmth.
Then there’s the lovely ripe grapefruit flavour that’s sweetened by that malty brown sugar undercurrent, while in the finish the green tea adds a woody perfumed kiss to end everything just beautifully.
