A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper)

Lowenbrau (2339) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 13, 2014
12floz bottle @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 08-06-2014.
In short: saison?
Pours quite clear pale golden (to pour or not to pour, as some of you pointed this may be not properly expressed, but i guess everyone understands this), with little white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Citrusy, subtle tart aromas. Light to medium body, average carbonation, slightly crispy texture. Taste is some sweet, fruity, quite citrusy, subtle sour flavours. Pleasant, but lacking saisnon character.

Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is airy and crisp. Mild minerals. Airy floral malts, just slight sweetness. Nice mild lemony citrus. Semi dry finish. A simple, clean and very drinkable saison. Nice job.

erickok (3881) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 25, 2014
End of the day reward? How about after bottling beer? Belgian yeast, wheat, some grass, not quite what I expected. Sweeter and less dry for one. Taste is more my thing but I still am not impressed by the underhopped and fairly thin body. Bit of a disappointment. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
