Flaske: Ovenpå Hop Savant står denne øl tilbage uden at få et ben til jorden. Rødlig gul let diset øl. Let sur duft. Smagen er dejlig behagelig med en god del syrlighed men ikke for meget. Fin øl.

Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Thick and very distinct Brett aroma - super delicious. Medium body, a dry and tart citric zest with some salty minerals. Astringent finish. Lovely. 271213

Batch 6 / 2013. 375 ml bottle into a wine glass. Opens with a slow gush over. Pours a hazy dark orange with a finger of soapy white foam. Excellent lacing and retention. Aroma is heavy on the vinous oak barrel with some light vanilla tannins. Familiar siason notes of citrus, grass, spices, and some bread. Taste is bright and acidic with lots of orange, lemons, and spices balanced by a smooth oak presence. Finishes musky with brett notes. Grassy and floral. Creamy mouth feel. Overall I preferred this to Vieille as it seems to be a much larger and interesting saison. It is heavier and more robust though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle. Cloudy yellow/orange pour, nice white head that fades pretty quick. Aroma - lots of light herbal notes, yeast, white grapes and some light citrus. Taste - lots and lots of funk, that finishes very dry and tart. Not bad but its a bit too tart which seems to dominate but a nice beer nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2015 12.7 oz./375 ml. bottle shared and poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey hue, with a light & bubbly layer of soft white foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was yeasty funk, light citrus, and white wine. Light bodied with decent carbonation, hop influence was moderately bitter, the taste was tart, but the mouthfeel came off a bit thin, possibly prompted by the distinct dryness. Still caught my attention. Shared another 12.7 oz. bottle with friends, and this time, the texture was better, a touch of peach was noticed in the nose, and hints of herb & spice, possibly some anise, where evident in both aroma & flavor. +.1

Bottle pour. Crooked Stave Surette. A delicious oaked up saison that is smooth and balanced. This beer has an amazing buttery finish. Cheers!
