COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complessa ma non difficile. Corroborante e beverina, come nella rigorosa tradizione stilistica delle Saison, birre del pranzo estivo contadino. Al naso e in bocca è un’esplosione di fresca solarità.

Oro brillante sormontato da una meringa di schiuma fine e compatta. Naso caratterizzato dalla speziatura tipica del lievito utilizzato, pepe fresco su un floreale bianco che ricorda il sambuco e il tiglio. La bocca, dopo un attacco morbido,si distingue per una piccante freschezza,che termina con una luppolatura vegetale e balsamica che ricorda la radice di liquirizia. Si sposa bene a piatti caratterizzati da una buona grassezza e anche speziatura, come salumi e affini. Resiste anche a carni di selvaggina e sorprende su piatti speziati della cucina indiana.

Questa è forse la mia birra preferita tra quelle di Schigi. Notevole la luppolatura, ma il lievito belga si sente eccome! E’ un bel bere

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters, hay-like cereals, bready yeast and herbal hops coalesce in this beautifully expressive and supple Saison.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam decorates the misty golden.
-Mild tartness accompanies the noble hop finish.
-Citrusy fruitiness splashes the second half of each sip.
-All flavours are intertwining perfectly.
-The tap version was as good, if not better, than the bottled version.

Bottle and on tap at Brasserie 4:20.

multiple 33 cl bottles. After having one, I went and bought a bunch more. One of my favorite bottles saisons in Italy. Pours a light hazed blonde with a nice fluffy lasting white head and great lace. Aroma is of the dupont yeast- light spicy phenolics, hints of fruits, dry earthy tones, grass, modest toast and bready malt backbone, and light floral hops. Flavor is biscuit, dough, bread, grass, phenolic spices, more grass, light pepper, sea foam mineral and airy middle with med to high carbonation yet not prickly- light grassy soft bitterness in the end and very dry for a 7% saison. Very nice!

Huge white head over a cloudy orangebrown body. Banana, orange, yeast, fresh herbs. Not as spicy as expected. Interesting acidity dominates the taste, but it is balanced by some fruity hops. It does smell a little old or woody. Alcohol does wonders in this beer. Full mouthfeel. (33cl bottle bought at Bir&Fud)

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle. A hazy medium blonde beer, with a huge, frothy, lacing, almost fully lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread, cookies), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, grass), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of pepper, banana and some other fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly sour, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, dry long fiish with medium bitterness, very lightly alcoholic. Great yeasty saison, complex and balanced. Dupont oriented, but with a great character and lightly wheaty. Spicy, lightly hot. Want more.

Bottle at BeerDeLuxe. Yeasty beer, some balance from the malts is missing. Aromas of grain and bread. Taste is sweet and sour, with average length. Palate is creamy, highly carbonated, medium body. Orange, with a frothy head.
