No I have children who don't go to bed at a normal time 😃
So this is the only chance I get to enjoy my own company. Some music and a beer or two 👌
Oh no! I’m now so old I’ve forgotten how life works with younger children, we just hand them back! 😂

What’s the penalty for trying to poison someone in a home-brew bottle swap @UKSkydiver had kindly offered a bottle swap, so I thought I better sample my Belgium Triple before agreeing its awful, it has a flavour somewhat reminiscent of nail varnish and I was slightly worried that I was going to throw up. I am really not sure what went wrong here, I will wait until tomorrow before attempting to throw this out as still slightly reeling.

So my apologies I am going to have to pull out of the bottle,swap,on the grounds that homicide I understand tends to be frowned upon.

Shame as it’s being a while since I have had a genuinely terrible batch , at least I tried it before sending it.

After the beer that I will not speak the name of for fear of it returning, I am having a can of Gun Brewery Red IPA this is a rather nice beer sweet but with a good underlying bitterness.

I’m starting with a guest ale tonight. This is a Saison! from @Clint , flavoured with Saaz. I love Saaz in a Pilsner so I’m quite looking forward to this.

Carbonation is good. A healthy blast of CO2 as I cracked the cap and you can see from the picture the bubbles rising in the glass. The colour is a beautiful gold with an amber tinge. Clarity is excellent, I can clearly see the image on the TV through the crystal clear beer. A thin white head stuck around.

The aroma is typically saison with peppery spice and light fruity notes, in this case a delicate zesty orange.

The flavour is again typically saison with a clean slightly herbal quality and just a passing hint of sweetness before a mild bitterness takes over. Mouthfeel is good with a soft fizzy sensation as you press the beer against the roof of your mouth - makes me smile.

There are no off flavours or astringency at all, just a really nice, clean, well-made saison. Great job Clint, nicely done:hat:
