Why do brewers keep on trying to make fruited saison beer? They never cease to disappoint.

Last night we had a tap takeover by Partisan from that London; they sent Dee who was lovely and paired cheese to the beers.

The one beer I was looking forward to most was Peach Iced Tea Saison ; nice saison but where's the peach? I asked Dee how happy they were with how the fruit had come through and she rattled on about how it was white peaches, not sweet juicy peaches, and it was brewed in collaboration with Masterchef winner, Tim Anderson, and basically I ought to consider shutting up because, like, y'know Tim Anderson... White peaches. Well I say I don't like the Emperor's new clothes.

Sorry, Dee, I didn't mean to offend but you're no Burning Sky and that bloke off the telly, he knows nothing about beer. Or peaches.

Aaaaannnnnd, relax
On the plus side, one of the guys at Partizan has a very nice looking Pearson single speed.

Sunset Aggro beer.

In the current spoons beer fest - in your local one possibly until tomorrow if you are very lucky.

Brazilian.

5.8 per cent - american IPA type.

By some spooky wonderfulness that can only happen in the best of spoons I ended up at the bar next to a Brazilian and was able to recommend it to him.

Broken Dream is one of my favourites:addict:! The Fierce VBM didn't disappoint at all and wears its 12% pretty lightly...another crazy beer from North of The Wall. Cross Borders' 80 Shilling is a much more sessionable 4% ish and a classic Heavy; youse couldnae put a bawhair between it and the Stewart 80 Shilling brewed just up the road in Loanhead.:cheers:

Broken Dream is one of my favouritesm.:cheers:
The bottled stuff is very good, so is the keg, cask though is on a different level.

Meanwhile, having a little sampling evening...
Here's a Burnt Mill Pintle. A decent, fairly bitter pale ale. I'd have another if I wasn't sampling...
