corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2012
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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1953) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 28, 2013
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.

Keg at La Cantinetta, Rimini. 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.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 27, 2011
Un poco granagliosa, virata sul dolciotto, pelino watery, mah..questa birra del Borgo poteva restare al Borgo senza che io dovessi andarla a bere in Città.

MaartenRF10 (1586) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Troebel, donker goud, geelwitte kraag. Combinatie van een zuurtje, zoetje, gist en wat boerderij. Doet me denken aan lemon curd. Ook licht kruidig. Wel aardig, maar wel blij dat het van 14 voor 3 euro was.

Gedronken met benzai, joes en dutchdrebus, gekocht in haps, oranje en helder van kleur, geen schuimkraag, ruikt naar caramel, beetje kruidig, smaakt naar alc. Beetje kruidig en zoet

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice hazy golden color, with a frothy white head. Aroma is quite sweet loads of sweet malts, some banana, subtle spice like coriander and pepper notes, along with some citrus. Flavor is kind of Weissbier and Witbier combination, with the wheaty flavors, some of the spices like coriander and peppery notes in the aftertaste, citrus, banana and some yeasty notes. The body is light to medium with a chalky mouthfeel. Overall an solid brew, but nothing exceptional.
