TBone (12567) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2010
Bottled 750ml vintage ~2006
Hazy deep orange color, small steady white head. A bit peppery-fruity aroma. White peppery, tart, bready flavor. Medium-bodied. Decent saison, still ok after 4 yrs. Thanks Andre for saving this over four Petalax Beer Festivals.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2010
In short: A basic blonde Saison with a nice barnyard character. Good.
How: Bottle 750ml at Delirium Café, Brussels
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose is moderate barnyard with some flowers, horse blanket and wet cat. No doubt, this is a Saison. Taste is nice but unfortunately a bit straightforward. Attack has a mild sweetness that is half honey, half caramel. That leads to a finish that is moderately dry with a mild grassy/floral bitterness. This beer is nothing special. But I’m the type of guy who likes a good Saison. Incidentally, I’m also the type of guy who doesn’t like a bad Saison.

Bottle, 75cl corked, shared by fonefan. A quite clear, golden beer with an off-white head. Citrus and some spicy notes in a nice blend makes the aroma. Dry, medium full mouthfeel, fruity and bitter with a herbal touch and orange-peel. Lovely dryness, and a quite lovely beer overall. (080823)
