Heathen (1444) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 1, 2013
THOUGHTS: Had this aging for a while, fairly unintentionally. Surprisingly nice. Hid alcohol. Quite refreshing Not the greatest saison, but a very nice beer. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, light orange with an average to large, off-white head that diminished very quickly leaving virtually no lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy caramel; moderate orange and metallic hops; slight funky yeas; heavy dusty yeast; canned fruit cocktail; and something like hairspray but not in a bad way. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet and acidic, and slightly sour and bitter with an average duration. There was caramel, orangey hops, dusty yeast, metallic hops, funky yeast, apricot, canned peaches, and canned mixed fruit. The light to medium body was a little syrupy and then rather dry with rather fizzy carbonation and a dry finish.

Bottle, pours amber slight head. Herbs and pepper on the nose with some funk. Fruity and some back end caramel sweetness on the palate, good without being great, not a bad attempt at a saison.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Quite a dark looking saison. The nose reminds me of Matilda with maybe a touch more sweetness. Smooth, sweet and lovely. The texture is nice and puffy, there is a little heat in the dry finish. Iím actually quite a fan, except for the light acetone that lingers.

Light haze on this gold - amber beer. Good size pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish with mild fine carbonation. Soft malt, airy and a little sweet. Unusual pear ester. Light brandy and a touch of bubblegum ester creeping in. Sweetish generic fruits. Little sherbet candy before a smooth and semi dry finish. Very unusual and pretty drinkable.

Bottle thanks to Gruber, cheers. Pours a pale golden with a lot off sediment which struggles to settle and almost no head. Aroma is musty. Spice, pepper, Orange citrus with some slight earth. Also an overall aroma of golden syrup. Flavor is serious sweet with a bit of a dry finish. Low carbonation and a full body.
