Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2012
(Bottle) Pours yellow with a white head. The aroma holds frozen strawberries, sour cherry candy, clove and allspice up front with undertones of black pepper, coriander, subtle yellow fruits, wheat, oatmeal (with sugar, cinnamon and apples) and white bread. Quite complex, lots of yeast things going on. The flavor is near dry, light to medium bitter and light acidic with notes of grains, spices, light fruits, grassy/light earthy hops, phenols and esters. The mouthfeel is watery and light tart with light to medium carbonation. Grainy and phenolic finish. Light bodied.

Growler received in trade. Thank you callmemickey! Pours tiny hazy golden with a big frothy and bubbly white head that leaves some sticky lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is very tiny sweet, spicy and phenolic with crackers, sour strawberries, allspice, lime juice, grapes, unripe banana, cloves, sour cherry gumdrops, cilantro, dry wood, dusty oatmeal flakes, cereal, hay, cinnamon, apple skins, pie crust and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, fruity and spicy with crackers, allspice, cloves, unripe banana, sour cherries in sugar syrup, orange zest, cilantro, unripe strawberries, tropical fruit popsicle, oatmeal, apple sauce, cereal, unripe kiwi fruit, black pepper, dry wood, unripe sour pears and very subtle hints of sheet metal. Mouthfeel is tiny round, slightly spicy astringent, tiny watery, tiny fruity tart and light bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, bitter and spicy with crackers, unripe banana, cloves, allspice, hay, black pepper, dry wood, grape skins, unripe plums, unripe banana, oatmeal and apple skins. Extremely phenolic which received mixed ratings but I kind of like it... Refreshing!

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2012
On tap at Tired Hands. Tart funky wheat and Brett. Light, crisp, and refreshing. A bit of sulfur but not a detraction. Hazy pale straw with thin white lacing head. Great wheat and Bretty notes, mild tart flavor with clean light bitter finish. Terrific light saison, refreshing, mildly hoppy and smooth. Nice session.

Looks like a classic saison, pale, small white head, hazy. Aroma is of orange, lemon, flowers, yeast. Taste is of orange, lemon, hay, pepper, flowers, horseblanket, a little barnyard funk in there aswell. A very nice and refreshing saison!

On tap at Tired Hands, my first visit! Milky pale yellow with a white head. Nose is vanilla pudding, grain and lemon zest. Medium light with soft carb. Taste is clean with clover, grass and light honey. Nice, subtle.

On tap: The aroma consists of lemon, lemon peel, light citrus, and faint spice. It’s a hazy, bordering on cloudy, dull yellow with a small white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick of citrus and faint fruit. The finish has light-moderate lemon/lemon peel and light pepper. It’s light bodied with light carbonation.
