COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered in bottle, filtered in keg.
Ingredients: Water, Barley malt, Wheat (20%), Sugar, Yeast.
First brewed in November 2009. Top-fermented blond bottle conditioned beer. Urthel Saisonnière has a wide range of rich aromas and a subtle bitter taste. at 6.0% abv it is a thirst-quenching beer with a "bite". It produces a beautiful foam head due to the 20% of wheat. To fully enjoy Urthel Saisonnière, first pour half the bottle, then give it a twist (3x) to release the yeast and the wheat from the bottom and then pour the rest of the bottle into the glass.

Saisonniere on kuplivaa ja kullanväristä nestettä. Valkoinen vaahto, joka muodostuu sen päälle, on melko paksua. Tuoksu on hedelmäinen, hunajainen ja hiivainen. Oluen maussa on tiettyä maisteisuutta, hedelmäisyyttä ja pientä humaloinnin tuomaa katkeruutta. Kuiva ja suhteellisen neutraali olut.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2011
The minimal haze is disturbed by explosive carbonation that fees a vigorous white head. Constantly clinging to the glass. Pie crust breadiness comes out from the nose that is otherwise fresh and brightly hopped. Floral and gently lemony aromas come out of this as bready malts, soft and beautiful serve a support purpose, but successfully enhance the beer by their great freshness and integration to the ensemble. Juicier and more fruity than expected with exquisite and soft lemon/line citrusy aspects that agreeably complement the graininess. Well balanced minerality add a salty side. I sound enthusiastic and I am, this is good stuff. On the other hand, under the influence of the likes of Taras Boulba, this feels less interesting, opposed to strong opposition and clearly inspired by previous Belgian golden ales. A pleasurable, easy-going drink that is not a show-stopper, but one I’d gladly revisit anywhen.

Pours a hazy shade of golden straw. Big creamy head that sticks around and laces the glass very nicely. Clove, bananas, a little bubblegum. Very much like a typical blonde. Nothing distracting or annoying about it. A little clove on the front with a very fruity banana presence. A little sweet, but just about right. Smooth. Spicy due to the abundance of carbonation. Not sticky sweet, which might be the conclusion for the taste. Very drinkable. Not harsh, not hot. A pleasant beverage to drink while mulling over the day. Probably my favorite Urthel to date, although Hop-It is good as well.

Bottled (from beerplanet.eu). Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized creamy slightly off-white head that settles quite quicly. Leaves some lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some mild yeast, quite much fruityness as well as mild spicyness. Flavour is rather sweet malts, some zesty notes, mild wooden notes as well as some yeast and mild spices. As it warms up, it gets some mild barnyardy notes in the aroma.

I poured an 11.2 oz bottle into a glass tulip... The beer is a hazy, pale, yellow with a lofty, pillowy white head that remained throughout the process. Smells of wheat, lemon, banana, clove and some hints of sourbread. This is the first farmhouse ale that I’ve had so I don’t know what to compare it to. In my opinion it tastes pretty good, there is some grassy hop flavors followed by hints of lemon, and wheat, it ends up being salty followed by a slight bitterness. It is full bodied but still light, lots of soft carbonation and a very dry finish. I enjoyed drinking this but the salty flavor and high carbonation would limit me from drinking more than one.

Draught @ Akkurat. Pours golden, big white head, semi hazy. Earthy, (belgian) yeasty nose. Flowery taste with notes of berry sweetness and white pepper. Ends hoppy and bitter in a currant seeds way. Maybe a little too sharp.
