3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought in Copenhagen 2013.
Golden with a white head. Pleasant aroma and taste of brett, hay, citrus, light cookies and light hops. The finish was on the dry side. A refreshing one.

@ Gyllenbock 15-7-22: doften är jättetrevlig med tydlig brett och hö. Tyvärr faller smaken ganska flatt. Snälla toner av hö och örter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sweet, fruity, yeasty, faint citrus in aroma. Horse, leather, earthy, yeasty, sour taste. Farmhouse and lemon peel in aftertaste. Acidic mouthfeel. Not my favorite style, but this one is so refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Fresh, crisp, but acidic aroma, a bit harsh, some saisony aspects. Straw, small head, not too brief. Harsh dirty palate, acidic and sharp and cidery. Brett, my arse. Are therse guys just more yanks who haven’t got a clue which bug is which, and what each one does. Fortunately whatever bugs are in here have left quite drinkable brew. Almost, but not quite, refreshing - the dryness of the yeast is a bit dirty and earthy. Does cover the 6% fairly well, though. At least it’s not a cookie-cutter saison, but it’s a cookie-cutter gone-sour beer. Good brewers managed to work out how to stop their beers going sour. Brave to fight against that trend. Some succeed, some don’t. Ug, second pour more lemony, more refreshing aroma, but taste is just shitty lemon juice. Fuck that, I’ve thrown away homebrews like this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy golden with a large white head. The nose suggest juicy lemon and funky yeasty flavors. Taste is even more sour than expected. Lots of lemon and lime. Some farmhouse qualities as well, bread, hay, grass and funk. Nice lingering aftertaste. Nicely made bretty saison.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Pours hazy deep golden. The aroma holds citrus, basment/horseblanket yeast, minerals, bread and some smoky phenols. The flavour is light sweet to dry, medium acidic and light to medium bitter with citrus, minerals, brett, light wood and bread. The mouthfeel is soft, yet tart with a light to medium carbonation. Light to medium bodied.
