Lively carbonation brings yeasty and lemony aroma. Sweet, fruity, complex flavors with a little tart sourness. Think lemons with the rind and even a little peel. Hints of floral hops. Warm, dry finish.

tomekk1978 (1302) - Z±bki, POLAND - AUG 4, 2016
Aromat: nuty ananasa, cytrusów, przypraw, wyraźna słodycz, ciastka, zboże oraz lekka dzikość.

Wygląd: barwa ciemno złota do pomarańczowej, wyraźnie zamglona. Piana biało- żółta, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita, ale umiarkowanie trwała.

Smak: wyraźna słodycz, nuty zbożowe, herbatnikowe i zdecydowany profil drożdżowy, fenolowy, charakterystyczny dla piw belgijskich. Nie wiele jest tu natomiast cytrusów typowych dla saison’ów. Mamy natomiast sporą nutę alkoholową i posmaki cukrowe. Goryczka, łagodna, adekwatna. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie i długi pikantny finisz z muśnięciem owoców i alkoholem rozgrzewającym przełyk. Spodziewałem się więcej.

Bawelt (509) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 25, 2016
Franchement bonne. Nez plutôt classique : abricot et pêche sur fond de levures. Bouche : très équilibrée, très agréable, légèrement liquoreuse, un petit fond caramel discret pour la gourmandise, un fond de levure, un petit côté houblonné pour la soif et le reviens-y, le fond fruité reviens bien également.

Alengrin (4420) - BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2016
American farmhouse ale apparently named after the blackbird, which is indeed a very common sight here in Belgium, where this style has its origins. Attractive bottle with glossy label, bought at De Caigny in Essen, a paradise for craft beer lovers. Thick, frothy, egg-white, dense head slowly dissipating in the middle and eventually all but disappearing, over a deeply ’old gold’ coloured beer with a ’fog’ of yeast bits throughout and vivid sparkling. Very ’Belgian’ aroma of ripe banana, gooseberry, sweet turnip, both sweet and sour apple, soggy sandwiches, strawberry, baker’s yeast, grape peel, white pepper, dried bitter herbs, mango, watermelon, honey, pineapple, young ’jenever’. Fruity onset, crisp and estery, with hints of sourish gooseberry, green apple and starfruit along with sweet banana and peach, medium carbo, bit minerally; smooth, supple body, nicely positioned bready and very lightly caramelly malt sweetishness, while the fruity esters continue; some spicy phenols too, but well restrained. Softly but adequately bittering finish, a bit earthy, somewhat spicy, floral and grassy, lingering at the back of the mouth a bit while juicy malt sweetness persists and a dash of warming but otherwise well-masked alcohol rounds things off. Nothing extreme going on here, but a very well-made Belgian ale, with good balance between sour, sweet and bitter though sweet dominates the aroma. Shows refinement and indeed a somewhat ’artisanal’ character at the same time, like any good saison should; this renowned brewery has once again captured the spirit of an old beer style without going over the top, much like their Old Rasputin impy. This exercise in restraint and balance deserves merit in a world where more and more craft breweries have ventured into the extremes - exciting as those often are, of course. Enjoyed it, and frankly, if I had to taste this blind, I’d swear it was made in Belgium, which I suppose was the intention; mission accomplished, I’d say.

Bottle to tulip. Barnyard sweet soda pop nose. Fruity fizzy saison. Yeast gives it life. Great balance. Damn good.
