Surly’s CynicAle is as delicious as it is unconventional. The appearance is everything you’d expect from a farmhouse ale: heady, lively, golden. The smells of yeast and fruit are extremely enticing, too. The taste is what blew my mind. Surly really nailed this one. The flavors of stone fruit and yeast blend perfectly to create a lovely earthy/sweet balance. While I’m partial to saisons that boast a big (and slightly sour) yeast strain, CynicAle shows that tropical flavors can also be a welcome addition to this style.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
Burk från Mikkeller and Friends. Gyllrngul, lätt disig, lågt snabbt försvinnande skum. Lite sötunken doft som inte är så trevlig, men som blir bättre när ölet luftat sig och honungsdoften gifter sig bättre med saisonjästen. Lite krämig/skummig munkänsla, spretig smakbild, söta honungssmaker, lite alkohol, lätt pepprig, gräsig beska, väldigt lätt kropp, men iaf lite saison vibbar. Nja. Surly har fortfarnde långt kvar innan jag är övertygad.

solidfunk (3817) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Nice light session saison with light Belgian floral yeast and light hay, bubblegum. Average for style. Carbonation a little fizzy for style and kills the finish, which has some sweetness. Tap takeover at Churchkey.

BiereLuc (882) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2014
Bière orangée, faiblement voilée, vêtue d’une jolie mousse blanche à grosses bulles. L’effervescence est faible. Le nez est incroyablement ragoûtant; on y trouve des épices, de la vanille et même un peu de banane et d’abricot. Ça sent presque le bon gâteau bien chaud. En bouche, on décèle d’abord des notes d’agrumes juste avant que le profil levuré s’empare de la scène. La finale présente une fine amertume légèrement poivrée. C’est la meilleure Saison qu’il m’a été donné de boire depuis un bon moment. À cheval entre une bonne Hefeweizen et une Saison, cette bière a de quoi surprendre et plaire.
