Habanero (3084) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2015
Bottled. Pours hazy yellow with an average, lacing white head. Aroma of yeast, lemon zest, brett, green grapes and peppery notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry, with bitter notes and quite tart. Medium bodied, watery texture and average carbonation. Avery nice Saison. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

yngwie (14910) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. A milky yellow-orange beer with a small, white head. Lots of grapefruit and funk in the aroma, some pale malts. Juicy flavor with grapefruit and loads of funk. Some vinous notes, yeast hints in a nice way. Lots of bitterness. Full body, soft and smooth on the palate. Lasting fruity finish. The brett makes it feel a bit simple, but it’s damn tasteful and moreish anyway. Would sure be nice to repeat this one. 150513

You can tell even when the beer’s inside the bottle that this liquid is going to be as hazy as mud. In a glass, this holds true -- the apricot-colored brew lets almost zero light in. In a tulip, hyperactive carbonation creates a pillowy head of pure white that’ll make you think someone’s covered your beer in goose down. White grapes are in the aroma, but more pronounced are notes of dried lemon, lilac, peppercorn, and urine -- but not in a bad way. Good urine. In the flavor, the crackery crispness of Pilsner malts provides a worthy backdrop for Nelson hop bitterness and funky Prairie yeast. Here’s the ’Merica I’ve been searching for -- a madhouse of homegrown funk, provided by a truly all-American culture. The yeast blends notes of hay, pepper and farmhouse funk with the lemony bite and gentle grape sweetness of the Nelson hops. The haze is not just for show -- those extra particles in the glass provide more body than you’ll usually find in a saison. The second pour from the bottle is made downright chewy by yeasty sediment. Alcohol, which is fairly high at 7.5 percent, is noticeable as it causes a mild case of heartburn on the way down. Peppery carbonation perks up the big body a bit, but overall this is a bit out of style in the mouthfeel. Nice blend of off-beat flavors, though.

hackobock (2102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2015
May 8, 2015. Bottle at home. Cloudy pale yellow with a large frothy white head. Aroma is funky, citrus, overripe fruits, slight barnyard, grapes, grass. Taste is funky, fruity, light to medium sweet, light bitter with a citrus tartness to it and some dry white vine notes. Light bodied average carbonation. A bit funkier than Funky

Maltser85 (337) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Hazy yellow pour. Appropriately fluffy white head. Aroma is somewhat muted. A bit of tropical fruit, passion fruit. The pilsner malt is apparent in the aroma. Slight brett funk, typical prairie yeast aromas, which is nice. Light body with decent tropical fruit, slight funk and barnyard on the taste. The pilsner malt is present and almost adds a cereal note. Finish is relatively clean. Slightly dry beer...thanks brett. Lighter body matches the ABV wonderfully.

Colour is a murky yellow. Aromas of hay, funkyness and nelson sauvin hops. The flavour is real fruity up front with some good funk and barnyard notes. Medium bodied beer with good carbonation, very drinkable! Will have to get more.
