3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy, floral hoppiness joins pale cereals and minutious fruit esters in this quenching and crafty session Saison.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sumptuous head of foam tops the cloudy blond.
-After having a few on tap and in the bottle, I get the impression that Del Borgo beers are more cohesive on draught.
-Carbonation is relaxed; at this strength, this makes the beer ridiculously drinkable.
-The finishing hop bitterness is herbal and wooden as well.
-The body is very well rounded for this gravity.
On tap at Bir&Fud, Roma.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Bir&Fud, Roma. Cloudy, pale golden with a small frothy head. Good fruity aroma with restrained spiciness. Coriander appears stronger in the mouth, though. A bit watery. A good enough wit.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It’s light golden with notes of fruit, apple, citrus and herbs. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of citrus, apple, malt and a touch of herbs. It’s very easy to forget...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 2008 Pre-GBBF Chris_o Shindig. Ridiculously lively pour. Much more off-white foam than beer. The beer that eventually does settle out of the foam is pale straw. Salty ocean aroma, fresh cut grass. Soft wheaty bitterness, chalky mineral flavor and a little pepper. A refreshing, solid beer. (Also interesting is that at this point in my notes, an unfamiliar hand has scrawled: "Shane Mc Bogan. I <heart> Bogans." Who could it be?)
