De winterse tegenhanger van Zonnegloed en dus alleen in de wintermaanden beperkt verkrijgbaar. Subtiele zachte smaak met tonen van hout en rijp rood fruit.

I guess my bottle is from a better batch. No gushing, no wryness, in all a decent saison. No outstanding flavors but subtle and refreshing. Doesn’t need the high percentage I feel. Bottle from Van Erp Groningen.

Bottle from het Biermoment, BB 08 2016, large sample. Slight hazy amber color, short creamy slight off-white head. Aroma of slight caramel, green apple, slight spicy yeast. Bit sweet in taste, fruity, slight sharpish alcohol. Slight metallic finish, green apple. Hmm, ok-ish.

ShivanDragon (2092) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2014
gusher (-1), amber met enorm koolzuurspektakel in het glas, bovenin lijkt het gist in een whirlpool te zitten, prikkelende co2 kraag (-1), aroma van caramel, suikerzoet, mouten, licht zuurtje, gist, iets van fruitigheid.
in de smaak komt de prikkelende co2 weer stevig terug, vind het niet ok, lichte zurige ondertonen van het rode fruit, iets van druiven, caramel, wat dunnen body, licht, kruidig maar beperkt en vind het koolzuur terugkomende in het mondgevoel niet erg aangenaam

Douberd (3075) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
(De Naeckte Brouwers Noorderlicht) Bottle 330 ml a t home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 7.5% Deep brown colour on the body turning to a nice light ruby when hold against the light. Big but frothy off-white head, with low retention, leaving a small foam island and light lacing after it has collapsed. Aroma of caramel, malts, some grains, a bit sour. Some grapes notes as well. Taste imitates the aroma, red grapes, malts, caramel, light grains, some yeast too thattogether with the grape/wine notes are the only things reminding of a saison, as for the rest is a typical belgian ale as far as I’m concerned. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Not a bad beer, but not a saison.
