Golden Ale. Come una dama d’altri tempi, la Cortigiana usa le sottili armi della seduzione per conquistare ogni palato. Dapprima irretisce con la sua disarmante freschezza, per poi rivelare un carattere appena piů deciso, che conduce senza indugi al secondo sorso. Difficile resistere al suo aroma ammaliante, in cui i profumi agrumati e floreali dati dal luppolo si sposano alle note mielate del malto, con una intrigante nota speziata nel finale che aggiunge quel "nonsoche" ad una birra decisamente beverina. Potrete tradirla, ma mai abbandonarla!

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, - FEB 8, 2008
Tap at Bir&Fud, Rome.

A very interesting "forest floor" and rose petal aroma (coming from Warrior hops, apparently) and then a complex bitter, malty and deliciously hoppy taste with lots of bitterness and fruity hop. Another lovely Del Borgo beer, but I’d say it’s more of an APA than a Saison?

Ktwse (4051) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Pours hazy yellow amber with low white head. Aroma of latex, basement, funky and nasty. Taste is mild sweet with a funky finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

huineman (589) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 31, 2016
33 cl bottle at Mamá Cecilia, Alcalá de Henares. Pours hazy pale golden with white thick head. Aroma reminds me of an IPA: grapefruit, mango, passionfruit, bitter herbs. Taste is fizzy, watery, fresh and slightly sour. Very bitter finish. Nice one, easy to drink.

Shavooo (2) - MALTA - JUL 20, 2016 does not count
5% alcohol. Pale Golden cloudy beer with a minimal creamy frothy head. Bottle fermented. Cereal/nutty malt aroma with floral hoppy aromas giving a nice fruity palate reminding me of ripe apricots.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 14, 2016
330ml bottle (Nisha, Kaunas) (6:3+:6:4-:12+=3.1+)
Pale orange, spongy head. Fruity and floral aroma, sweetish. Plasticky malty taste, but not a burnt plastic. Pleasant bitter finish, a gentle bite and tingle. That tingle I like, but the mashiness of the malts, even rice pudding, disturbs me. A bit too messy and raw, but certainly pleasant.

mandaritto (239) - LATVIA - JUN 20, 2016
Refreshing beer. Aroma - citrus. Taste - grassy, very malty, oily mouth feel kind a liked it, but is it really saison? Not quite

Vells (1607) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - JUN 20, 2016
Far from good qualities of saison, but quite refreshing with some citrus hint, light grassy hops. Light sweetness with moderate to light bitterness. Drinkable, but thats it

Marduk (6324) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2016
330ml bottle (Nisha, Kaunas). Hazy orange color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sweet, malty, grassy hops, dirty and metallic in aroma. Sweet, caramel, grassy hops in taste. Metallic hops in aftertaste. I’m not a fan of metallic hops, but in this brew it doesn’t disturb me that much. Drinkable brew.
