corkyrory66 (1012) - BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2015
Mélange de saison et de blonde en dry hop, avec un nom familier flamand… d’un niveau abv de 4,4 %. Mon exemplaire avait dépassé sa date de 6 mois, mais il présentait encore toutes les marques de la fraîcheur…. Couleur doré moyen brillant, à la clarté nette, pure. Bulles fines partout, nombreuses et très vives. Mousse blanche très épaisse, avec une très belle texture ferme en haut, stable à 6 mm. Arômes strictement sur l’amertume de l’Orval !! 1ère bouche souple à la belle amertume, avec un houblon et une pointe d’épice. Arrière-bouche dans la droite ligne de l’Orval. 2ème toujours avec houblon et épice, mais l’assemblage manque un rien d’harmonie. Arrière-bouche bien amère et longue. 3ème avec malt clair et ensemble amer/fleuri un peu disjoints. Arrière-bouche un peu moins longue. Longueur avec plus de fondu, plus d’équilibre et de très beaux moments. Cette touche d’écurie est aussi très valorisante. Jambes marquées, un rien collantes. Levure douce, fine, très belle ligne. Alcool qui laisse passer utilement toute l’amertume, bien pour le genre évidemment. Finale sans faille. CONCLUSION : grand moments pour cette petite saison (c’est son nom !!), et elle avait presque tout pour passer au top, n’eut été un léger manque d’harmonie sur les premières bouches.

Bright clear gold beer, big fluffy white head. Palate is light and dry and has a fine crispness. Thin sweetish malts. Mild spice. A little lemon lifts it from dullsville. Dry finish. Fine.

Flaska belgoklubben. Disig gul kulör. Brödig doft med lätt belgokaraktär. Ganska tunn men frisk och inte helt meningslös smak.

Bottled@Delirium Café, Brussels. Hazy yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, zesty, some funky mild spices and bready malts to it. Flavour is fruity, floral, wooden, toffeeish and some mild herbal and funky notes.

GoufCustom (1217) - HONG KONG - AUG 21, 2015

330ml bottle bought at BeYummi’s kiosk during "Lan Kwai Fong Beer & Music Fest 2015" in Central.

Looks: Cloudy hazy golden honey colour with a ring of dirt like yeast sediments; Explosive two and a quarter finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with fizzy small carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Pils malt, with banana, champagne, pineapples, grapes, vanilla, caramel, carbo, sugar, strong Bel yeast, very light lemon and faint grass. Nice!

Taste: Close to light sweet Pils malt, with notable tartness hints of caramel, thin orange notes, faint red fruits, molasses notes, strong yeast, lime, fairly strong bitter hops and strong grass.

Body: Medium body. Thick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Strong and pretty rich maltyness in a thick and creamy background. The presence of tart wheatyness doesn’t deter its full-on barley feel. Fruity esters like orange and cherry are there but very mute for a Saison or a Belgian Blond. Dry-hopping gives you some very notable limey bitterness to round. Strange but not bad at all!

Hoppiness: Very light lemon and faint grass in nose. Lime and strong grass in taste; Bitterness is moderately strong for a lasting, quite astringent malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Easy, creamy and fairly bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has a surprisingly nice fruity champagne aroma, yet taste-wise is more like a hoppy English Golden Ale, more on the limey bitterness and mute on fruity ester. What’s more surprising is the rich and creamy palate yet refreshing with every sip, now that’s more like a Saison. Unorthodox, but a neat one to have!

Bottle 330ml (Saveur)
Hazy yellow color, big white head. Fruity pineapple spicey aroma. Light-bodied. Grapefruit/spicey tartness, sweetier fruityness. Lingering grapefruity bitterness. Nice beer for this ABV. Perharps more like Belgian ale or Belgo IPA than Saison.
