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.

Pours amberish with a nice thick, persistent white head. It was quite clear and gassy (a bit too much so) until I chucked the yeast at the bottom of bottle which thickened it in a nice way. Didn’t get an insane amount apart from fruit and a mix of stuff on the nose, but as of taste, oh my. That’s when this thing gets into it’s nature, starts as coriander and sweet malts, then goes through a crazy explosion of yeast and malts and bubblegum and some hops. The flavour carries on in that Belgian mish-mash and dies into some sort of peppery long finish. It is pretty drinkable, I’d call it a session ale after all.

Trüb-gelblich mit anständigem Schaum. In der Nase Weizen, Nelke, Banane, helle Früchte. Am Gaumen fruchtig, Weizen, etwas Banana, recht bitter. Schöne Kohlensäure, ausfüllend.

Fantástico creme branco e denso. Muito bem formado. Líquido amarelo e turvo. Aroma herbal. Malte e lúpulo. Adocicado. Refrescante. Lembra uma abadia, mas muito mais intensa em amargor. Apresenta boa acidez ou toque apimentado. Chama-la de semi-seca me parece adequado, também. Não percebi o frutado que seria esperado nas saisons... Mas possivelmente pela minha limitação como degustador. Talvez apresente um resquício de casca de laranja.

Moebbels (318) - FINLAND - SEP 4, 2014
A slightly hazy yellow body with a large, fluffy white head. Nose has funky aromas of yeast, hay, barnyard and herbs. Taste is quite dry with a long herbal-like bitter finish. Could possible have an ever so slightly solventy finish. Carbonation is very high and the bubbles keep forming in the mouth, mouthfeel otherwise is medium. This is quite nice, a good refreshing and interesting saison.

Urthel saisonniere heeft een klevende smaak aan de binnenkant van je mond, het is niet een heel lekker biertje

Stine (1581) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Tap. Clean filtered blonde; milky white webbing. Sweet corn and boiled cauliflower aroma with skittish green herb notes passing through here and there. Fair amount of butter. Fresh sourdough and bacterial notes deeply hidden.

Clearer flavor with coriander, peppercorns, vanilla. Mealy pear and banana sweetness is strong. Dry grass and straw create a pleasant, brittle counterpoint. But generally, the taste lacks nuances, which seem to have been filtered out. Tinny, artificial sweet corn notes are distracting throughout.

Weakened body again as a filtration casualty. This is wet and washy, with semi present carbonation swimming in honeyed and overripe fruit sugars. Lavender finishing flavor, aromatic and pleasant. The variety of issues here is almost certainly the product of the variance between the tap and bottle versions; it’s probably a mistake to order this beer on tap.

Always love a saison, they rarely disappoint, and this is no exception. Not the world’s best saison, to be fair, but well worth a try all the same

Silvan7 (702) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle @ home. giallo paglierino schiuma bianca abbastanza fine poco persistente. Aroma speziato, erbaceo, frumento, note di miele. Al gusto è secca, abbastanza amara.Ritrovo spaziatura e acidità del frumento. un punta di miele. Corpo un po’ spigolosa. abbastanza equilibrata ed armonica.

Voor een saison-bier te zijn vond ik het toch niet zo goed. Er had meer smaak aan mogen zijn.
