Thanks Angst for providing this one. I loved Brekeriet Cassis a lot! This one shared a few ways with some American friends at fridge temp.

A - Looks a pale yellow 2 finger solid white head with a little bit of lacing.

S - Aroma is nice! I get a little baby diaper and sulphur / rotten eggs. Lemon grass, wheat eggs, an overall nice nose though considering the more negative aromas.

T - Taste is pretty nice. A lot of wheat, lemon, bread dough, sourdough, some pepper. a lot of different flavors. a lot for the low alcohol.

M - Thin mouthfeel.

O - For the low alcohol, this is quite an enjoyable beer.

’14 vintage, many thanks to Emil for the bottle. Pours a glowing yellow color, with no head. The aromas reveal an interplay between crisp citrus and wooden marzipan, leaning on dusty, sweeter malts. Definitely focused on the citrus, which comes along with a decent leathery note, topped off with floral honey. Almost a bit too stale for the light, tart body, would benefit from a higher carbonation. The taste begins with a crisp funkiness from the very beginning, together with bready, earthy malts. Then old potatoes and biscuits provide a pleasant sweetness, enhancing the sourness, coming together with a decent dryness. Citrus turns even more sour, while the finish reveals a subtle mineral quality among an aqueous mouthfeel. Super light bodied, while the beer provides a pleasant, refreshing bitterness, among dust and funk.

Smooth sour saison. Too forgiving for me but a nice sour saison nonetheless. Perfect after a sauna-session!

brokensail (13234) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle @ GT’s Cat Cabana. Hazed golden pour with white head. Some bread, apple, and pear on the nose. Decently spicy and a bit of lime and orange zest. Nice nose. Flavor is a bit on the musty side, but there is a good citric tartness. Some crisp green apple and baked pear. A little bit of yeast and some bready sweetness.
