Liquide de couleur blond et trouble. Beau collet tenace. Les arômes végétales resortent du verre. En bouche, l’amertume des houblons résineux sont dominants mais l’acidité typique d’une saison est bien présent. Très bonne bière.

portableparty (1993) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2015
750ml bottle. Pours a pale bright amber with a thin tight white head. Aroma is citrus yeast subtle funk. Taste is more subtle funk with really nice citrus bitterness and yeast and malty backing. Palate is thin crisp and dry. Really nice.

Enfoque americano del estilo, con un primer plano de pimienta, herbolario y cilantro. Boca densa para el estilo, golosa, muy bien balanceada, con tacto y recuerdo de miel

Koelschtrinker (11753) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 5, 2014
Leicht hefiger Antrunk, hell, steigende Bitterkeit, milde Kräuternoten. Trockener, dennoch vollmundiger Mittelteil mit nun stäreren Kräuternoten, die der Bitterkeit entgegentreten. Intensiver Kräuterabgang mit deutlichen hopfigen Komponenten. 10/10/11/11/11/11

Ambro206 (216) - ITALY - AUG 31, 2014
Raggiunge la sufficienza per il servizio dal cask e la complessità degli aroni. Alla frutta acerba si mischia l’erbaceo deciso dato dal dry hopping ma in generale la birra risulta sbilanciata e lontana anni luce dalli stile a cui si dovrebbe ispirare sulla carta fatto di spezie ed armoniosità.

milara (65) - Ste-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Belle bière dorée et légèrement trouble avec une mousse parfaitement blanche et persistente. Au nez, les arômes de campagnes et de gazon cache un côté fruité prometteur. C’est en bouche que les saveurs explosent grâce à la texture pétillante et l’amertume qui remplie la bouche de malt riche. La finale est longue et délicieuse, ce qui attire la prochaine gorgé en dégustation. Facile à boire, excellent bière d’été.

olio (6943) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
75 cl bottle (7% abv) @ Timo A.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Lemon and spices on the nose, grassy hops, faint yeast and wood. Citric fruits, lemon peel, spices, maybe some yeast too. A bit weird, some alcohol comes through at the end.

lusikka (6741) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
750 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of grainy malts, strong pungent herbs and some alcohol. Flavour of strong grains, herbs, mild sweetness and grassy bitterness. Hard carbonation. Harsh.

Humlehode (149) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2014
Pours light golden, slightly cloudy. Very low head and carbonation for a saison. High residual sweetness, low bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
