There’s nothing simples about the beer. Subtle, elegant, complex. I want to say coquettish, but that might be a bit much. There is simultaneously lots of flavour … and not very much. The nose is amazing, the barrel really comes through. There are light flavours in there, with oak on top. It did remind me of oaked ciders, just without apples. It’s refreshing, but perhaps too light, the oak is good, and the flavours kind of rotate and flux. In the end I think I wanted it to stop being cute and flirty and just snog my face off.

A collaboration with Brasserie du Mont Saleve on a Saison with gin and tonic inspired flavours. It all began by brewing with the yeast strain Yorkshire Square and an infusion of gin botanicals and cucumber. The result, Yorkshire Blanc, was stored in oak barrels that had most recently held London Dry Gin. The rich and varied history of the barrels translates into a multi-faceted flavour profile – botanicals in harmony with white wine character and a discernible oak finish. While Simples translates as ‘herbs with botanical flavours,’ this is a beer with lots of complexity.
