LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Appearance: Pours a bright cloudy amber gold with a retaining white cap of tight foam.

Aroma: Bright Euro hops, bread dough and light spices.

Taste: Spicy bitter hops, spicy yeast with some floral notes. Finishes more yeasty than hoppy.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied modest carbonation.

Overall: This beer was decent, but nothing I would go out of my way to try again. It’s jut not one of my favorite styles of beer. It was well executed, just not my bag.

Nose is quite a bit of funk... with pilsner malt, maybe some rope and hay with dank hops. Carbonation is very strong and somewhat thin. Pitch white. Color is a golden hazy hue. Great head retention. Also has quite a bit of sediment floating. Which was also in the top of the bottle. Mouthfeel is average. Slight spicy note going down which lingers on the back. Also some sour notes on the after... Lots of depth to this beer. Reminds me a lot of Boulevard tank 7. Probably more character and slightly more dense though. Not sure why that gets zero credit and this gets a ton. Both are excellent beers.

Bottle at bitter virtue from cotteridge wines.
pours hazy amber with slight white head. Herbal earthy hop nose. Dry with light carbonation and hop bite. Just what I want in a session saison. Yum.

ClubGonzo (4224) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2012
Bottle from Høkeren in Ravnsborgsgate, Copenhagen. Pours a hazy light orange body with a massive foamy head. Aroma is citrus, pine, soap, hints of grass and wet leaves. Fresh. Taste is basement yeasty notes, citrus, blue cheese, bitter leafy vegetable-like tones and hints of orange peel. Strange, but delicious. Medium body, sparkling carbonation. Very nice.

750ml bottle that a friend split with me, interesting label. Cloudy orange color, almost amber. Smells sort of belgian, a little rustic (what does that even mean really?), yeasty. Taste has a hint of aspirin, I think its the hops but my buddy swears its the yeast. Either way this was quite a refreshing beer and I’d like to taste their other offerings.

Bottle, 75 cl. Beautiful hazy golden with a creamy white head, very good retention and lace. Yeasty nose with farmhouse accents and citrussy fruity hop notes. Light sweet medium bitter taste with a dry, astringent mouthcleansing finish. Rustic yet delicate.
