KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle that was about 2 years past its drink-by. Will still rate it, because it was good and interesting that way. Cloudy blonde with a nice low head. Big grapefruit nose, barnyard funkiness which certainly came with aging. Light malts as well. Tart, citrus flavors, not much hops left at all, but barnyard and some sweet bready malts. Crisp, light body. This made me think about the whole deal with BA saisons. They taste like this fresh, but with more hops. This truly is an agable beer.

omhper (18954) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2011
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Gustav Adolfs Torg, Malmö. Hazy golden, rich firm head. Milky nose with some grass that transitions into dough. Fairly light bodied, yet with evident depth in the malt structure. Spicy grassy bitterness cuts through in the finish. Manages to combine rusticity and elegance in a typical north French way.

Big bottle, picked up@Kihoskh, København. Tall creamy white head. Shady, straw yellow body. Tangerins and perfumey Belgo-yeast to the nose. Dry sharpish fruit flavor. Restrained dry malt body with fresh grainy notes. Fresh yeast tones, as well. Nice sparkling in the mouth. Some spicy astringency on the palate. Lively, dry fruity finish. A refreshing one.

Bottled@SBWF2011. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, mildly herbal with yeast and some quite farmyardy notes. Flavour is caramel, some earthyness, sweetness, fruits and mild floral notes. Pleasantly balanced and quite refreshing, but also a bit watery.
