Si presenta subito molto attraente con un bel colore aranciato e una schiums sontuosa, pannosa, aderente e persistente. Già nell’olfatto si coglie il suo punto di forza rappresentato da un bouquet straordinario, vario e all’insegnadella freschezza con note agrumate, di frutta esotica, erbacee, pepate e speziate con in più un tocco balsamico che ricorda gli arbusti della macchia mediterranea. Nel palato mantiene le promesse, con la parte fruttata che ben contrasta l’ imponente retrogusto decisamente amaro, ma secco e dotato di gran finezza ed equilibrio. Birra eclettica e socializzante. A tavola, grazie alle sue doti di freschezza, la vedrei bene con piatti piccanti ed un po’ speziati della cucina indiana e thai, ma anche sardi a base di pesce, preparati con salse a base di limone e zafferano (Lorenzo Dabove aka Kuaska)

Hopverdju (722) - BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2015
Troebel blond bier met mooie witte fijne schuimkraag. Leuke frisse geur met munt. De smaak is kruidig en bitterig. De afdronk doet me even denken aan de rode Hack’s snoepjes. verrassend leuk.

Opaque pale yellow, lacing white foam head. Light sour aroma returning in taste, citrus, lemon tones. Think this is an OK saison. (Milano 201511)

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Hazy pale gold lasting thick white head. Decent saison touch of soap but it’s fairly light and solid. Light saison yeast aroma, some lemon some hop. I rather like it. Enormously drinkable and good depth of flavour. Simple but done very well. Good peppery hop. Straight up very good saison. Not over the top, but as I said very solid. Yes not too exciting but absolutely fine and down the line saison.

Bottled 0,75L. Nice and elegant clearly yellow color, fine bubbly aspect with long head resistance. Herbaceus, citrus and spiced aroma, fresh yeasty nose. Medium prickly and acidulous taste. Pleasant yeasty and soft malty final.
