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.

Tap: Houston Flying Saucer .. Pours a medium hazy gold.. good amount of puffy head, lacing is quite good too .. . aromas of hay, yeast, and light beehive .. quite a sweet saison, especially for a Belgian . .. You see? You just can’t trust anyone. The first girl I let into my life and she tries to eat me.

graham515 (536) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Pours a hazy yellow into the glass with a nice white head. Description says that it is filtered on draft, but this is an extremely hazy beer. Aroma is slightly sweet with spicy belgian character. Flavor is cereal grain with a round sweetness and belgian spice that one would expect from a saison. Not quite as dry as most saisons and a bit cloying towards the end.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
Draft, and therefore filtered, at Prime 16. Decent mouthfeel. Good pepper, spicy tastes. Suitable carbonation. Whitish saison colours. A good drinkable saison, nothing out of the ordinary.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Sampled July 2010 waiting on a Belgian Cat 4 waiting for The Tour de France to roll through
The beer pours with a brilliantly clear, pale blonde color and is topped by a frothy, barely tan tinged, off-white colored head that is dense and creamy and leaves quite a bit of lace. The beer smells of lemon-like hops, and a nice grassy-grain pale malt character.

The beer is soft and creamy feeling, but a fizzy carbonation brushes the palate quite clean. A touch of pale-malt sweetness is here, but this finishes dry with a grassy, herbal like hop character and firm bitterness in the finish that dries things out considerably. There is also a hay-like grain note in the finish. Lemon like hop flavors compliment nicely with the pale malt sweetness as well as with the grassy herbal hop components. While soft and creamy textured, this beer is still quite quaffable and light; I have been drinking lots of Lambic so this seems heavy comparatively, but really it is quite light and drinkable. Yeast derived notes contributes a spicy, clove-like, earthy, rustic yeast flavors to the beer.

It is quite nice to be drinking this beer as I wait for the Tour de France to roll over this small category 4 hill out in the Belgian countryside. The rustic yeast character combines with the hops and characterful pale malt character quite well. This is definitely a beer that fits the situation quite well.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2010
Bottled (Alvinne shop, BB 05/2012)
Slightly hazy golden color, big cloudy white head. Aroma has honey, peach, alcohol and green apples, similar to some bulk malt liquers! Medium-bodied. Certainly not a Saison but Belgian blonde. Flavor is similar to aroma; fruity Belgian yeastyness, pepper, honey, apple, some alcohol and grassy notes. Solid Urthel, not exciting, but .. solid.

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Hazy gold - lively pour, with a huge, well-sustained, soapy head - a lot of particulate/floaties that look like fine grains of sand floating in it, which keeps it from getting a 5 for appearance - very dry and spicy/peppery aroma, with moderate mineral character, dusty yeast and crackery malts - some underlying orange marmalade sweetness and clove - full but soft carbonation - very dry, with flinty/mineral qualities, crisp malts, herbal bitterness, pepper - mild phenols throughout - long, dry, bitter finish - pretty dang good.
