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.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2010
The pour is a clear straw color with a full, creamy, rocky, white head which is mostly lasting and leaves lots of scattered lace. The nose is pleasant but nothing exceptional; lots of lemony citrus notes and lemon peels, a significant herbal hop notes, rosemary, light sweet rolls, white pepper, and a faint estery note. The flavor is similar with a nice balance between acidic lemon notes, herbal hop notes, and white pepper; other notes of sweet rolls, faint yeast esters, and again the same rosemary note. The palate is quenching, lively, drying, and more than medium body. The finish finally shows off the herbal bitterness, more white pepper, and a citrus acidity diminishing. I think the beer does exactly what it is going for; the quenching acidity, balancing hop presence and spice, and slight hefe tinge. Nothing really great about the beer but everything just works for this saison-ish beer.

Dorwart (2382) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Wow, big skunk aroma. Some lemon and butter cream once the pungent aroma wafts away. Some straw and yeast also. Nice frothy white head of fine bubbles. Light and crisp flavor with some sweet tarts, lemon and cereal grains. Moderate bitterness and dryness. A good summer brew.

Beer4000 (4576) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2010
330 ml bottle. Golden body with a huge, creamy white head. Moderate aroma of yeast, spices and some fruit. Flavor is quite sweet, mild malty, spicy, yeast and light fruity. Quite straightforward but descent.

Sampled on 6/26/2010. This Belgian ale/saison pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from a 33cl bottle. Large sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is cereal and fruity, sweet, slightly spicy and earthy. A medium to light bodied Belgian ale/saison. The malts are fruity and sweet with a touch of cereal. The hops are earthy. Lively carbonation. Crisp and clean. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

BuckeyeBoy (2854) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Bottle pours out a hazy straw color topped with a great fluffy white head. Aroma of light hop notes, yeast, spice and sweetness. Taste much as the aroma some banana spice lots of bubble feel. Another tasty brew from Urthel.

ClubGonzo (4175) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2010
Pours a sand-colored foggy body with a medium, long-lasting white foamy top. Nose is coriander, citrus, clove and wheat. Taste is pepper, banana, dry hops, hints of molasses and grapefruit. Very, very dry and bitter finish; a bit too bitter considering the rest of this brew. Urthel Saisonniere is a very complex beer, which could’ve been really good with a bit more balancing technique.

Drake (8779) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2010
11.2 ounce bottle from Bruisin Ales, opened 6/20/10. Pours a clear pale golden color with a large frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, bread, grassy hops, green banana and some other fruity notes. The taste is grassy hops, green banana, stone fruits and a bit of nuttiness. Medium bodied. Decent.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2010
Bottle. A hazy, lively, pale golden-orange beer topped by a big, white head with good longivity. There’s a good dash of citrus peel and also some hops, hay and biscuity pale malts. A faint barnyard aroma in the far back as the beer warms slightly. It’s medium bodied, effervescent and dry in the mouth. Yet there’s a sweetness in the flavor, like sweet oranges without almost all of the orange flavor. There’s also biscuity malts, hay, some sourness and spices. Not to forget the hops, which takes some time to appear, but runs most of the show in the finish. A very quenching one, easy drinkable and pretty damn tasteful too. 100702
