Pinball (11928) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2016
bottle, differnt label than pcitured. The caging broke off as i twisted it, it is brittle. batch#4 2015. hazy yellow, smooth white head. aroma of citrussy fruit juices, mild spices, brett. Flavor is bretty and yeasty, slightly bitter, quite dry, almost no fruit , but perhaps grapefruity notes, compared with an ordinary belgian saison this one is much more refined, smooth and velvety. combined with the very dry and grapefruity notes it coems off as an easy drinking bretty smooth beer. i had it quite cold, more flavors develop as it heats up. Reminds me of orval, combined with saison notes, but this one is better than orval imo.

Bottle at Hoppy Loft Brussels, march 15th 2015. Hazy golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and funky brett, spicy saison yeast.
