PalCabral (145) - - MAY 19, 2013
Large bottle from systembolaget. Pours hazy light amber into the glass. The head is thick and frothy, indicating perhaps the use of wheat in the mash? The aroma is interesting, citrus and yeasty, not bad. The taste is unfortunately more bland or should I say one-dimensional. The hops take over and the softness in the palate cannot compensate for the lack of other flavors than prickly hoppiness. It’s a good representative for Saisons and effective in being giving more thirst. Unfortunately, the taste lacks some complexity and it is likely the chaser will be another beer altogether.
