draft @ redlight redlight. Floral spicy aroma, citrusy. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. Citrusy peppery flavor, very wit like with a little resinous bitterness in the middle and towards the finish. The end is dry with some coriander lingering. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy, dark golden orange color with a 1.5 finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacingleft behind.
Slightly musty, earthy aroma with farmhouse funk, zesty spice, bready yeast and sweeter fruit notes. Hints of grass and straw along with bread, pepper, coriander and orange peel.
Medium bodied with tight carbonation and a nice balance of zesty spice, funky saison yeast and sweet fruit notes. Peppery spice up front with the coriander very prominent. This is countered by some bready yeast and slight, earthy funk before finishing with sweet fruit notes. The bread flavor gives fullness to the palate while countering the heavy spice presence. Finishes sweet with hints of apple, tangerine and orange. Well balanced, flavorful and easy to drink. Another nice beer from Del Borgo.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured at a good temperature with a medium sized, off-white head that soon settled down and no lace. Color is a amber with several very tiny bubble trails. Aroma is beery, yeast, spice, wine, bit of malt. Flavor is like nose with carbonic tang briefly right in front then some cloying sweetness, followed by some more tang, bitter, honey, pears. Body is a little weird - soft yet a slight edge from good carbonation. Finish is like flavor, long, and a bit too sweet for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Rakuten. I thought this was a weizen but it turns out it is a Belgian Pale Ale brewed with Einkorn Wheat. It was a bit of an odd beer, it poured a nice golden copper with a thin quickly dissipating head. The aroma was candy like with citrus notes. The flavor was sweet and tasted a bit like oranges. Some people thought it was sour, some thought it had sorachi ace & someone else thought it was made using Brett... I think it was probably just the odd wheat used in the brewing coming through, quite interesting & unique.
