3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2013 Something I picked up at Asahiya today. Toccalmatto’s Sibilla Saison. Bottle, 6% 1690 yen for 750ml. A new import to Japan thanks to Whisk-E. A very light cloudy gold with a light fizzy head of foam. It has a really nice Saison aroma: spicy, fruity, some funk & a bit of zest. Nice full mouthfeel but the carbonation is a touch heavy. The taste is well balanced, spice, citrus and some of that farmhouse funk. Pretty good. Trying it in a jupiler glass similar to a stange or pilsner glass... in this glass it is quite a bit fruitier, still spicy with a tad less funk. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Atto Primo (right next to the brewery). Colore giallo dorato con riflessi ambrati, opalescente, con schiuma bianca abbastanza fine persistente. Profumo fruttato di lievito belga, di albicocche e mela matura. Spezie sicuramente presenti. Floreale di buganvillea, ed erbaceo di luppolo da aroma abbastanza deciso. Gusto abbastanza intenso e persistente, dolce (strano per una saison), con una acidità quasi citrica, ed amaro erbaceo da luppolo. Ricorda la frutta estiva fresca forse anche il melone, ma la dolcezza è ben contrastata da una luppolatura abbondante, citrica ed erbacea allo stesso tempo. Equilibrata ed armonica. Strana per essere una saison , ma buona senza dubbio.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Hanging Bat. Pours hazy yellow with no head. Aromas like a glass of white wine. White grapes, fruit, some lightly spiced yeastiness. Slightly grassy, with some sweetness on the taste. Could do with a touch more balancing bitterness, but pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75l bottle shared with the tasting crew. This is a light blurry golden-honey colored one with a nice big heavy lacing white top. The nose has sweet apricots, leafs, cacti, hay, citrus and yellow fruits. Highly recommended aroma. The carbonation level is average and the mouthfeel is soft oily. it’s really tasty this, quite citrus infused for being a saison. Yes, some saison yeast definitely, and it’s light fruity with a sweet flavor. A bit unusual for a saison perhaps, but I like it. My first from Toccalmato, and I’m already looking forward to the next one. 06.02.2013
