COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anche la Natura, a volte, sbaglia. Nera, impenetrabile e profonda, sormontata da un’’abbondante schiuma. Effluvio di frutta rossa, quasi di uva e di anguria, poi di scorza d’’arancia, prima di un tocco di leggero tostato. In bocca scivola via veloce, con corpo leggero, dissetante e ancora fruttata, salutando con un finale in cui l’’amaro erbaceo ed il torrefatto si inseguono senza trovarsi.

Draft @ Moeder Lambic Italian Beer Festival ’12. Belle petite saison au profile bien belge restant très facile à boire. Couleur foncée brune avec un col présentant de belles bulles allant sur le beige. Arôme met en avant un bouquet assez fruité d’agrumes avec ici des houblons polonais et zélandais dont je n’avais jamais entendu parler. Cela donne un nez bien citronné. En bouche, pointe maltée pour un pétillant faiblard, le tout restant bien léger. AU final on retrouve moyennement ce profile saison belge avec ici une bière qui devient une hybride donnant une sorte de black saison où le fini malté ressort un peu plus.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2012
Draft sample @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas // Italian Beer Festival // (a) black with a small tanned head // (s) man, my handwriting on these notes sucks, I think it is supposed to be, smells like yeast, dark fruit, nuts, spices & brief hint of sour twang // (t) glue malts, nuts, dark fruits, bitter floral hops finish, touch cocoa, bitter finish, quite yeast, disintegrated parts // (b) light malty, soft carb. // not particularly crazy about it, weakest one of the beers I tried at the Italian fest, maybe more Extraomnes than Toccalmatto (?), not saison-like either

antomusterione (12) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 19, 2012
Black, very special perfume on the nose, not attractive. A little sour. Not too bitter. A bit too watery. Unconvincing.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAY 16, 2012
Pare che sia una seconda cotta, un po’ più spinta sui luppoli, se ho capito bene; io ho gradito, anche se è una birra non facilissima da inquadrare e ce ne voleva di più!

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 19, 2012
Pours dark black with big lasting brown head. Nose is a bit sourish. Lemons perhaps. Also coffee. Not much else going on here. Tast is dull. A small bitter pop at the end of a mostly watered down ride. Mouthfeel is crisp and slick. Average aftertaste on this light bodied beer.

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - APR 19, 2012
Io la definirei una black saison ipa. Odore da saison e di ipa, così anche il sapore nera malti tostati luppolata fresca, buonissima!

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - APR 18, 2012
Aroma fruttato e quasi dolce subito demolito dalla luppolo. Al gusto una punta di frutta all’inizio (prugne e pera;un mix) e poi giù a Cascade la luppolatura. Una venatura di malto tostato con qualche nota di cioccolato e caffè soprattutto. Originale: un genere a sè stante. Black Saison con qualcosa di un IPA non eccessiva.

flavio_b (275) - ROME, ITALY - APR 15, 2012
On tap @Macche. Creamy with a small head, it has an intense black colour. It is slightly sour at the beginning. Very fruity in the finish. It seemed a great beer to me.

Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - APR 13, 2012
11/04/2012 Domus Birrae (330ml bottle). Bruna, poco densa, schiuma bianco sporca, abbastanza persistente. Aroma di frutta tropicale, con note erbacee, di mela verde (acetaldeide?) e un lieve tocco terroso, sentori di tostato e lieviti. In bocca risulta un po’ timida e corta, si sente la base di saison, con note tostate appena evidenti. Acquosa, leggera, scarica di corpo. Originale, senza dubbio, ma non mi ha fatto una grande impressione. Un punto in più nell’overall per l’originalità.
