Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
In short: A rustic, tart, acidic and oaky Saison-like ale. Good beer.
How: Tap at Hill Farmstead Farmhouse Saison Festival 2012.
The look: Cloudy blond body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is musty, a bit of funk and with plenty of oak barrels but not a bourbon character (I was told the barrels were bourbon, might be wrong). Taste is I very rustic, sun dried straw and hay, dusty attic, musk, salty/minerals sensation, fresh virgin oak, apples, lemons, bananas, ripe citrus fruits, a bit of funk. Razor sharp finish that is rather tart and dry with a fair amount of acidity. Not sure what happened to the “Pale Ale” part of the beer here, this to me was a truly rustic Saison even though its present ratebeer style is simply Belgian Ale. Enjoyed at the Hill Farmstead Farmhouse Saison Festival where I had way too much to drink, and if at a beer festival you have never been voted "Most likely not to live to the next year edition of the festival" than clearly we don’t have the same lifestyle.
