callmemickey (3467) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Hazy golden-yellow body, moderate sized white head, nice retention, soapy lacing. Nose is lemon, with some must, wheat, spicy yeast, and oak. Flavor shows a nice harmony between a light, wheaty, yeasty saison and the clean citric profile of Girardin lambic. Medium bodied, a bit juicy, pleasant acidity and citric sourness, An interesting blend that ultimately succeeds.

Pours a vibrant, golden yellow color with a decent, bubbly head. Has aromas of an enjoyable tart rustic ale, with some barnyard to it, together with strawy hay and crisp, white citrus peel. Exhibits a high, fitting carbonation among a smooth, enjoyable mouthfeel with a medium body. Full, round taste, of straw, old leather, citrus and soft, dough hay. Citrus shines through in a very convincing fashion, among the present, apple infused acidity. Finishes very refreshing, with stony minerals, slightly sweeter malts and sour citrus - very clean and refreshing. Tastes a tad smooth and softer than your usual Lambic, gently fruit accentuated, with a pleasant depth of flavors.

Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2015: Interessante blend. Birra bilanciatissima. Aromi di limone, yogurt, frutta. Corpo medio, frizzantezza vivace ed adeguata.
