Bottle at ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting. Very hazy pale gold. Lasting thin white head. Rather a beautiful aroma. Touch sour, slight sour funkiness, got yeast just right. Decent hop on finish. Really good.

yngwie (13508) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle, 75cl, thx to papsoe. It pours a hazy orange body with a big diminishing off-white head. Citrus, some caramel, a touch of brett and spices in the aroma. Ginger maybe. Sourish flavor with lemonpeel, spices and alcohol. Dry, medium to full body, fizzy and warming. Decent, spicy finish. I like the spicyness in this beer, but else it was quite ordinary. Or rather maybe just not my beer. (080823)

Bottled 750 ml at Beer Hunters
My first beer from this brewery. Hazy orange color, small white head. Sweetish peach aroma with light white pepper note. Foamy carbonation. Ginger, cinnamon, bretta and mint in the flavor. Very spicey Saison. Not very Belgian.
