750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 printed on the cork. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 3 finger fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pepper, coriander, earth, clove, pear, wheat, grass, hay, bread, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, pepper, clove, pear, wheat, bread, grass, hay, coriander, earth, herbal, floral, and big yeast spiciness. Light wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, wheat, pepper, clove, coriander, bread, earth, grass, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor complexity and balance; very crisp and fairly dry finish; no cloying flavors at all. Great malt flavor to spiciness balance as well. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy, chalky, and fairly prickly and crisp mouthfeel that is excellent. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely world class saision. Insane balance and complexity of flavors; extremely crisp and smooth to sip on. I am going to have to revisit the normal Saision Dupont soon to compare; this is apparently the organically brewed version of that. WOW.

Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a foamy head that steadily reduces, leaving considerable lacing. Aroma is yeasty bread, grass, orange-lemon. That persists on the palate, light lemon biscuit with a hint of pepper. Very creamy, filling the mouth like a puff pastry, but still light. Very original brew, best cold.

Mortlach (1019) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
On tap @ Mad For Beer (Rome). Dorata, lievemente torbida, schiuma bianca abbondante e persistente. Al naso splendido bouquet aromatico, lieviti, spezie, un tocco floreale, leggero citrico, davvero niente male. In bocca ha un attacco dolciastro, con note di pane e cereali, e un finale acidulo pulito, alcol non percepito. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Molto buona.

Merci à Marc pour cette découverte. Les levures belges aux accents d’épices ressortent au premier nez. De subtiles notes d’anis, de clou de girofle, de bananes confites, accompagnées d’un peu de poivre, de cardamone et d’herbes aromatiques. Un très beau profil olfactif. Beaucoup de complexité. Le visuel se présente blond, doré, légèrement flou, avec une mousse généreuse, crémeuse, parsemée de grosses bulles. Son maintient est très long et elle laisse de belles traces sur le verre. Son attaque est encore une fois épicée et herbacée avec un soutient constant des sucres de malt et de levures. Elle fait beaucoup penser à une saison. Ses herbes fraiches, ses épices discrètes et efficaces et sa petite finale d’amertume terreuse. Mais sa grande force réside dans son équilibre parfait. Les sucres, les épices et les herbes, issues d’un houblonnage bien dosé, sont parfaitement balancés. Très agréable à boire.

Cloudy, chalky golden. Creamy light grainy lemon, silky carbonation and a floral lemon. Finishes smooth, lean drinkable grainy sweetness. No grip of booze at all.

Bottle, Flu Jab Tasting

ABT_S54 (209) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2014
25cl bottle served in a Trappist glass. Pours a dark straw cloudy colour with a nice (slightly) off-white head which lasts well throughout the drink with localised areas of carbonation. Aroma is grainy with hints of yeast and citrus. Taste is lemon curd, Belgian yeast, straw with a nice stony dryness. Overall a very well balanced beer and extremely fresh tasting.
