33cl bottle. Pours a very nice golden colour, a hint of cloudiness, clean white foam. Aroma is mostly lemony, peppery, very elegant. Taste is bittersweet, peppery again, with a nice balsamic note. Light body, medium carbnation and hidden alcohol presence. Strange and interesting one.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden/light amber color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma is farmhouse yeast, lemony citrus, white peppercorn, grass, floral with a good amount of sweetness. The flavor is herbal, peppercorns are more noticeable, yeast, toasted bread, light fruity notes with moderate sweetness. I like this one; quite a bit going on here.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark golden yellow with a huge white head. The combination of spices added to this ale makes it very complex and delicious. Very balanced and with a good hoppy finish.

BMan1113VR (7895) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a massive white head. Great retention. Huge, funky belgian saison aromas, bretty, damp leaves, old books, sunflower seeds, floral, dry, sage herbal. Flavors are of candi sugar residuals, dry, sage, spicy, pepper, raw sugar, musty books. Extremely lively carbonation, dry, easy to drink. Complex yeast notes. Fizzy. Spicy, low mineral. Very effervescent and authentically belgian in feel.

330. Pours a cloudy and chunky medium amber with bright golden brown highlights. Enormous surging platinum blonde head that eventually settles back down to a thick layer of rocky cream. Bright sweet lemony peppercorn nose, really a nice combination. Some hard boiled egg yolk showing. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, lemons, and soft peppercorn notes on the mid palate, with a little egg yolk in the background. This beer is 100% giving me a craving for deviled eggs.

Mortlach (1102) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 6, 2013
06/03/2013 La Tana (tap). Color pesca giallona, appena torbida, schiuma biancastra abbondante, non molto persistente. Al naso sentori di pesca, scorza d’arancia, pepe e spezie, leggera vaniglia, luppolo. In bocca ha una base da saison (che stenta a venir fuori all’inizio), un po’ confusa, acidula, speziata, con amaro finale e buona secchezza. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Originale senza dubbio, ma un po’ caotica e pasticciata. Not my cup of tea.

Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose and taste of peppercorn, farmhouse yeast, lemongrass, fresh lemon zest, orange peel and mild spicy hops. Medium body. Great balance. Finishes mostly spicy pepper corn and lemon zest.
