Aroma: barnyard, wet hay, zest, some spicy and grassy notes. Taste: Moderate sourness, moderate to low bitterness. Flavour hase baked apples, hay, sweet malts. Bitter and sour aftertaste. Possible this was not bad, but I didn’t expect so much brett notes from saison. This is not my beer.

dnicolaescu (1188) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 26, 2015
BOTTLE 75 CL from CH-303. Vintage 2014. Hazy golden, off-white creamy head. A peppery classic saison aroma, with lots of bretty barnyard notes. The taste dry and spicy, moderately acid, lactic acidity and a nice hoppy bitter finish too. Very good.

Glowing light orange color. High carbonation leading to a large, long lasting white head. Spots of lacing. Tart, funky, sour aroma. Apricot, hay, apple. Flavor is tart, dry, dusty lemon. Apricot, barnyard funk and a little cheesiness.

Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av citrus, gräs, hö, ladugård och kryddor. Syrlig, torr, fruktig, frisk, funkig. Fina välbalanserade smaker som rundas av med en god beska. Riktigt gott!

Vignale (2499) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier, drucken med ölföreningen. I mitt tycke en närmast perfekt saison. Frisk, lätt mjölk- och vetesyrlig, funkig, lätt kryddig med ett uns nejlika. Bra balans och mycket karaktär. Riktigt gott.
