Bottle at the BIG 2-page tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours golden-yellow with a small white head. The nose is vinous, juicy, funky, orange, apricot, peach and natural yoghurt. The taste is hay, funk, barnyard, tart fruits, orange peel, tangerine, vinous notes and sherbet with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice sherbet character. Crisp, tart and very drinkable.

Bottle at the big tasting. Cheers to Leighton for another of these. Pours clear golden with dense white head. Nose is lemon curd and marmalade with tangy citrus, lime zest and sugary funk. Taste is lemon focused stuff. Lemon curd, lemon cheesecake, tangy lemon juice, blood orange, mango, hay and straw. Brett works well with the vinous notes running through the lemon. Almost a little musky. Nice stuff

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
