neongolden (1254) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2015
(750ml bottle from Systembolaget, 3.6% ABV listed) Pours lightly hazed blonde wiht a small white ring of bubbles and no lace. Aroma pretty sour and funky, green apple, citrus, white wine, wet hay, wood, gooseberry maybe?, Bretty barnyard hints and some lacto. Flavour moderately sour, green apple, lemon, white wine, orange peel, grassy, lactic, very light pale malt sweetness, sometimes a cheesy hint. Gets pretty oaky towards the finish, bitter herbs, apple skin, a bit of dusty Brett hayloft thing going on in the aftertaste which is bone dry. Fairly light body and light prickling carb. Quite flavourful for the low ABV and reasonable body, maybe the best low alcohol saison I’ve had even if I’d call it a sour...

Klar som vatten (stått orörd i kylan i två månader), mycket ljus gul, vitt skum. Doft: Brett, frukt godis, Champis, nektarin, söt citrus, lite äpple. Smak: Brett, övermogen frukt, jord, "våta gamla planko", råt kött, fruktkärnor, äppelskal.

Saeglopur (1727) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 24, 2015
750 ml bottle from my EU Secret Summer Santa _angst_, thanks!
Yellow-orange, cloudy body, with a quite small, frothy, off-white head.
Aroma of funk, sour citrus, green apples, pears, some orange, lemongrass, some sweet malts.
Tastes follows this, with a bit less funk and more rounded.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes sour, quite dry, fruity, a bit funky.

Nice one. Easy, fresh and with the right amount of sourness. Really good for this low ABV and a very nice summer beer.

SvanteL (306) - SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
Guldgul, disig med litet skum. I doften finns en hel del stall plus citrus och örter, Smaken är stallig och jästig men detta övertrumfas snart av frisk citrus och fräscha örter. Dracks till varmrökt lax vilken dämpade stalligheten och framhävde den friska syrligheten. En riktigt trevlig saisson.
