Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 31, 2013
In short: A semi-rustic blond Saison with tropical fruits, flowers and honey.
How: Tap at Vices & Versa, Montreal.
The look: Cloudy blonde topped by a large white head with good retention leaving a lot of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is bright and vibrant with tropical fruits, rustic countryside character, honey flowers. Taste has honeyed cereals, plenty of fresh tropical fruits, freshly cut wheat and hay, flower petals. Low sweetness sensation despite the honey flavor. Lots of tickling hard bubbles. Refreshing beer. Very good beer even if I prefer their dryer more rustic Saison Du Tracteur, actually I thought Mellifera tasted a bit like a honeyed version of Saison Du Tracteur. A nice honey Saison named after a species of honey bee, and I think my father must have messed up our "bees deposit pollen in flowers" sex talk when I was a kid because I can’t drink a honey beer without getting horny.

The artwork is incredible. Light aromas of honey, citron and yeast. Poured carefully, beautiful appearance. Large, rocky white head with excellent lacing and a slightly hazy medium yellow colour. Interesting flavour,slightly sweet,bitter and sour equally balanced.Average duration. Light,watery body with lively carbonation. I like It!

600ml bottle with great label artwork. Pours a large foamy white head and has a hazy golden/orange appearance. Some sediments are visible. Thick dirty lacing. Aromas of yeast, orange peel and faint hints of honey. Flavours are quite sweet. Some notes of honey right off the bat, as well as citrus hops, oranges for sure, yeasty notes in the finish. Medium bodied mouthfeel, slick and somewhat oily texture. Sort of a fizzy carbonation. Bitterness on the palate. Quite enjoyable.

Olfactif lactique avec notes herbacées et forestières. Des accents de pin, d’herbes fraiches, de persil, de verdure. De subtiles traces de miel et de citron; mais il faut les chercher longtemps. De couleur blonde, voilée, avec une bonne mousse crémeuse qui tient bien et qui laisse quelques traces visibles sur le verre. Le citron est plus dominant en attaque avec une trace de miel, une finale très herbacée et une touche de résine. Le poivre fait également acte de présence rajoutant du piquant à une effervescence prononcée. De petites traces de gomme balloune viennent se rajouter à la fin. Également de petites notes de terre, de foin et de vieille ferme complètent ce large tableau de saveurs. Le miel est cependant très subtil. faut le chercher longtemps. En bouche, la texture est svelte, l’effervescence très active, et elle offre un fort potentiel rafraichissant. Une saison plus qu’acceptable.
