Bullit (4444) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Venerables. Copper coloured with a medium sized light beige head. Nose is hoppy, soft creamy and fruity. Sweet candied fruits and graprefruits, some light maltiness. Flavour is light malty, same fruitiness as in the aroma, some soft creamy notes, a bit spicy. Light hoppy, with candy, tropical fruits. A soft spicyness of the saison yeast to round it off. A lovely, in fact, pretty stunning beer. Nice surprise.

Last in the series of three we acquired, pours a burnt orange cooper color with a cream colored head.nose is grainy and grassy. Taste is grainy, grassy with no real outstanding flavor. By far the worst of the three I tried. Finish is bland and grainy. Quaff Score 6 / 10 , and I love saisons, huh ?
