3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
02/07/2015 Istanbul. İçindeki mayayıda katınca bulanan portakal rengi Saison türündeki biranın köpüğü latte köpüğü kıvamında dolgun ve beyaz. Bardakta gazlılık yüksek. Koku tam bir cümbüş; maya, ekşilik, yaş üzüm, Saison türüne uygun ferahlık biraz daha beyaz şarap tınılarını yaklaşacak şekilde konumlandırılmış. Tadım vurucu, ekşilik var, hafif üzüm, limoni tatlar. Kalıcılık yüksek, damakta burukluk var.. Harika yemek eşlikçisi olabilecek bir bira..

Bottle thanks to Brian. Bottle is at least a year and a half old. Slightly hazy color with still good carbonation level, aroma is straw, light barnyard, pale grain, yes indeed there is golden raisins. Interesting. Flavor also reflects the golden raisins with weak Belgian yeast through the center.
The mouthfeel is heavy with sweetness. The malt has for sure taken over with yeast nearly dead at this point. But with that said; it has held up really well. The raisins make this different.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden cloudy color. Light funky, saison like smell. The taste is salty, spicy and a little to much lively carbonation bubbles. Very dry in the aftertaste.

Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is musty, old wood, meadow, white wine, grape skins. Taste is mild white wine, some grapes, light lemon, dry oak. Interesting but was hoping for a little more funk and depth.

Well I had to get the cork out using my teeth! After that, aromas of meadow with sporadic wildflowers. Slight lemon and pepper became more apparent as it warmed. Hazy golden-orange with full white head of soapy bubbles that are retained. Taste is moderate spice and citric squeeze of lemon. Slight grittiness of sheathed wheat field. Finishes nicely dry. A little bit of barn but not too much. Very pleasant to drink.
