4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle, consumed on the same day as Anna. The pour yields a lightly hazy, beautiful golden body that shines brightly in the light and shows consistently streaming micro-bubbles. A short but steadfast blanket of creamy, snow-white foam sits at the head, giving tissue-thin, tattered sheets of lace to the glass. The nose is masterfully simple, based in über-fresh malted grain with dry, peppery, floral yeast and crisp notes of grassy hops. Like in Anna, there is a suggestion of wet hay or straw that lends a bit of farmhouse character, but missing is her subtle honey kiss and wildflower complexity. This one is more classic saison. Flavors follow the nose, crisp and snappy, biting grass bitterness showing atop a base of fresh cereal, hay, and dried bread. White pepper and other dry spice show in the yeast profile. The palate is dry as a bone, laced with lively carbonation that quickly clears away what little residuals the fully-attenuated, moderate body leaves behind. Damn fine beer. Not quite the showstopper that Anna is, but an excellent example of a straight-up, classic saison. Close your eyes and you’re instantly transported back in time to the fields of Wallonia.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught. Hazy golden with an off white head. Apples, citrus a little pepper and barnyard in aroma. Tart with some apple sweetness in flavour. Light and fresh body with a little watery body. A vague bitter finish with some fruit. Thirst quencher of great dimensions, but it lacks depth in flavours.

Let syrlig mælkesyre duft. Næsten lambicagtig syrlighed i smag. Cremet rundhed men en hel ren maltkrop der giver mundfylde og giver plads til mælkesyren. Ingen humle men let bitterhed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to snifter. Nose is moderate citrus with mostly lemon and a light orange note. fairly clear light orange with a medium sized whitehead that dissipates fairly, leaving some lace on the glace. Taste is immediately lemon with some acidity, then opens up to show some grapefruit and orange. zesty. A light hop flavor it seems, some pepper. overall, very quenching, but the acidity is a bit much to make it gulpable, but it is still very drinkable.

Delicious. I love Arthur. The May batch is even better than the most recent batch. Holy crap. Tart, lemony beer with so much tartness and so much saisonnness. Really good. Adam hates my ratings. I’m over it. I’m sorry that I’ve had too many but I’m not stupid enough and certainly know that this beer is amaze-balls.
