Christian (11381) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2015
Hazy golden with a disappearing white head. Fruity aroma, mostly tropical, spicy notes of coriander and clove, and some herbal and grassy hop notes. Sweet malty, fruity and spicy flavour, with grassy hops and a rather bitter finish. Very classic, but a little sweet, plus, equally good Belgian saison is cheaper in Denmark

On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear yellow with a white head. It has a light crisp body with mild carbonation. The beer has pils malt, Belgian abbey yeast, spice, some grass and is very snappy. The finish has spice, light dough and is very clean. Quite nice.

OldMrCrow (2032) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2015
750 ml bottle from Beer Authority.

Lighter yellow pour, white head. Dusty nose, a bit of pepper, dry hay. Flavor is quite dry, phenols forward, modest fruity esters but not much in the way of funk. It’s alright, but only just.

Defreni (2711) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2015
Flaske: Lysegul uklar øl med et stort skumhoved. Duften er hvede og belgisk gær med en lille snert af citrus syre. Let syrlig og frisk i smagen. Meget lækker øl.

Prufrockstar (1262) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Draft at chucks. Clear gold pour with minimal head. Mild aroma - biscuit, lemon, and flowers. Lean texture, light body with lively carbonation. Taste is rather dry, with a lightly bitter floral finish. What’s missing is any funky, tart, mineral or earthy qualities that I often dig in saisons. Also, what is an urban farmhouse anyway?

(Bottle) Very very light straw color. Nice spicy sweet aroma. Quite refreshing. Lots of interesting subtle spice, fruit, and floral flavors. This is quite good! One of the better "farmhouse" ales I’ve tasted. I just wish it was stronger :)
