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.

marcus (6781) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 19, 2010
Pours clear yellow with a massive foamy white head and a floral fruit aroma. There is a crisp clean pale malt flavor that is citrusy and refreshing. A decent saison.

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle at Cambrinus in Bruges. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Light aroma of near funk. It’s mildly spicey with the mildest touch of funk. It’s very tasty. Hop over funk (almost).

JohnnyJ (4553) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 14, 2010
On tap at Stone Bistro. Hazy golden/orange pour, white head. Aroma is quite sweet... sugar, banana, spice, and belgian yeast. Flavor is much more dry, more spice (black pepper) and floral/herbal character. Saison? Not the best in my opinion.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2010
11.2 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Nose is peaches, clove with some yeast evident. Sweet is the dominant impression. Pour yielded a light, lemon-colored brew with a large 1 1/2 inch head with good retention and lasting lacing. Carbonation was evident. Taste reveals honey, lemon and cloves but with the funkiness you would expect in a saison. There is a slightly bitter, metalic, dry finish but some citrus stays throughout. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this beer all the way through. This is VERY drinkable, sessionable beer, particularly for a summer day.

Draft at Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Pours straw yellow with foamy white head. Aroma of dust, light colored fruits and the prairie. Flavor is solid. A great saison that must certainly benefit from being fresh. I really enjoyed this one.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 8, 2010
Bottle from Brussels. Golden beer, lively carbonation, a little yeast residue. Full fruity flavour, a hint of stable, plus loads of citrus bitterness. A lovely beer, I wish I had a regular supply of this one!
