TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2012
Bottled 750ml (vPBF, vintage 2011)
Hazy orange color, steady white head, lace. Horse blanket, spices, winegum. Medium-bodied. Very spicey, hoppy, a bit alcoholic, fruity-grapefruity flavor. This is interesting beer - to love or hate. I liked it.

750 ml bottle @ vPBF 2012.
Pours hazy orange colour with a good frothy head. Aroma of strong sweet orange, clove and alcohol. Flavour of sweet orange, alcohol, pale malts, strong perfumic grassy hops, rubber and some caramel. Medium bodied, foamy mouthfeel and high carbonation. Finishes sweetish, a bit musty and very high bitter. Some mild off-flavours and very high bitterness for a saison.

Aroma is rather fruity with yeasty notes, some citron, apricot and hints of urinal cake. Very foamy palate. Flavour is rather tart with yeast, some urinal cake, vinegums and apricot. Some warming alcohol in the finish. Very hoppy for a saison. Quite yeasty, but interesting and nice.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle@Home. Nice aroma, cheesy, light fruity, light herbal. Hazy, daark yellow, beige head, good lace. Sweet, very bitter, malty, herbal, nasty bitter finish. Rather disappointing after a great aroma. Suppose Belgium style and English brewing don’t compute.

Complex flavors and aromas. Wonderful beer all around. It is a little pricey, but other than that it is absolutely marvelous.
