tmzl (89) - SLOVENIA - APR 30, 2014

Look: Pours with huge, creamy, medium sized bubbles, light off-white head. Fast, good retention with sticky lacing coming down. Creamy, very thin, thick layer stays on top, leaves lots of lacing. Very cloudy, dark yellow with light orange hue.

Smell: Light to medium lemon, apple sour. Subtle, but fine leather funk - makes it warm and fuzzy. Fresh cut grass, bit of hay, also some light tropical feel.

Taste: Starts with light lactic sour, goes to very light, bread (and light burned crust) middle, missing a bit of malt character here, but ends with a pleasant and satisfying finish - light noble hop bitterness with medium sour. Funk goes down a bit, but more pineapple and some medicinal notes.

Mouthfeel: Light body, crisp and dry - very fresh.

Overall: Light and fresh, complex enough, too bad its too expensive for a go-to beer on a hot summer day - that would be it’s perfect niche.

ACD (634) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 21, 2014
Tap at brewery. Yellowy gold, hazy. Bready nose, with light floral esters, some light citrus and wood in there too. Floral esters in the taste, peaches, bread, cereal, lightly tart yeastiness. Dry and well-carbed. Very refreshing.

bowtiebeer (4) - California, USA - APR 12, 2014 does not count
Crisp and tasty but not a very complex saison. There’s a slight bitterness there in the finish and just a touch of tartness. Probably would be most welcome on a warm sunny day with some hard cheeses and salty cured meat.

bursprak (590) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 12, 2014
750 ml bottle, shared with my wife. From a trade, thanks Santin! Pours a dark clear golden fluid with a three finger white head. Aroma is really enjoyable with some earthy notes, light yeast, grain and some light lemon. Taste is a bit light but very balanced and nice. Some notes from the barrel, some light bitterness and some funk from the brett rounds it out.
