FlacoAlto (3850) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2013
A steady pour into my Teku glass produces a four finger thick, and rising, pale tan colored head that would have overflowed my glass if I didn’t choose to eat it instead. The beer is a metallic seeming gold color that shows a brilliantly clear, bright yellow gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of bright fruit and dried hay; specific notes of pear, floral apple, hibiscus, nutty pale malt, pale wheat cracker, and some melon like notes.

Effervescent, which pairs well with the light body, dry, which still can’t suppress the bright fruit notes, and quite complex, with a mélange of flavors, this beer is my idea of a Saison. The grain character has a nice, dried straw like character to it, a soft cracker like malt note, and this mixes with a light herbal character, perhaps a touch of lemon zest, or citrus character, and grassy hop notes. The yeast character contributes a soft clove character, a slight mustiness, some woody black pepper, a touch of ginger character.

This is quite nice, not the most complex Saison, but it definitely hits the spot.

SlackerMads (2103) - DENMARK - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle while watching Theydon_Bois explain his top 5 shitting yarns on youtube. Clearish copper coloured with la large frothy white head. Fruity nose; ripe apples, grapes, dust. Also some light funk. Much the same things in the flavour with some white pepper, dry flowers, grass and wood also. Medium body, carbonation is a bit high and it has a light greasy mouthfeel, but otherwise it goes down easy.

HonusWagner (1702) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Too old, the green bottle has allowed skunkiness to set in even at a bar as diligent as RLRL. Hints of good stuff underneath so I’ll give a middling grade.

Douberd (3194) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2015
(Stillwater / Hof Ten Dormaal ’Bronze Age’) Bottle 375 ml, corked and caged. Served into a teku at home, ABV 6% Opens with a loud pop and gushes. The pour is all a thick white foam with just a bit of beer underneath, should be the other way round. That little bit of beer, is clear and orange coloured. Aroma is grainy, some citrusy notes. Nice taste, less grains but still there, fruity notes, a nice touch of citrus, light yeast, some floral notes too. Medium body with good carbonation. Pretty good but that gushing ruined it for me.
