fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - AUG 21, 2013
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Balck color with creamy head. The aroma is sweetish and stale (pond water), overripe fruits, candeish, it reminds me of some poor Dutch Abbey Ale. Good body structure; strange flavor, not real roasted malts, instead some liquorice and bubble-gum; very light yeast spices; sweetish; stale pond water impression; no bitterness.
Classic failed American attempt to brew a Saison, this time more vicious.

Mortlach (1103) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 30, 2015
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Pours dark brown-mahogany with a rich beige foam. Aroma is roasted malt, molasses, spices, some belgian notes, chocolate and berries. Confused. Flavour is sweet at first with an acidic end, a bit rough. Medium to high body, medium carbonation. So so...

nuplastikk (4908) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2015
12oz bottle shared by Anndiesel. Deep brown body. Foamy off-white head. Smooth brown chocolate tones. Not so unruly with the saison yeast, which is really nice...gives it more of a classic Belgian dark ale feel than an overboard US saison. The schisandra and hibiscus round it out well. The hibiscus drying it a little and the rose hips fleshing it right back out. Pretty solid, unique offering.

12oz bottle from J’s Liquor in Owensboro, KY. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Dark black with a plum hue. Thin tan head. Strong citrus and floral aroma with a hint of malt. Medium body and nice carbonation. Very tangy on the palate with a apple crispness but not too strong. Hints of brown sugar balance out the tartness. Very floral throughout.
