ClarkVV (5781) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 22, 2016
750mL bottle, from Spring 2016, drunk 7/16/16.
Big, lasting, white head tops a sparkling, peach-nectarine-golden with light copper tints and a good clarity.
Very lively yeast in the nose shows pretty straightforward white pepper, nectarine, apple, a touch of bubble gum and nuttiness. Fresh though and quite charming, even if not every single note is quite the pinnacle of saison brewing. Spicy/peppery hops show respect to tradition, with a big honey-caramel kick on the finish as the malts enter the picture. No alcohol or flaw.
Malty, with lots of honey, light caramel and a big bready character. Tons of carbonation, though mostly tight and natural make for a lighter perceived body than what it actually is and as the carbonation settles and the beer wears on, I do think it gets just a bit too malty and sweet. Still, there are plentiful enjoyable esters and phenols to behold with soft, spicy hops lingering and no alcohol or flaw.

Zlotta (2086) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2016
Sampled from tap at the Oedipus International Beer Festival 2016. Clear, pale straw yellow with a white head. Fruity-grassy, slightly sourish and a little floral aroma of lemon peel, pineapple and grass. Slightly bitter, grassy-fruity, floral taste of lemon peel, some pineapple and some grass, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately grassy and dry finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!
