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.

DigitalMan (193) - Idaho, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Cloudy yellow with decent white head. Aroma reminds me of mass-produced US beers. Flavor is much better than that, though. Bright and a little spicy. Decent amount of fizz and bite.

rdb84 (79) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Yellow/orange color, large foam. Aromas of dried corn, canned chickpeas, strong citrus aroma that is noticable from across the table. Taste is a little dusty and watery. Corn flavor again, dried oranges. Large bitterness at the end. Aftertaste is cheese (overwhelmingly!), brie, old ripened cheese. Not the best saisonniere I’ve tasted.

Holmen2 (704) - NORWAY - JUL 13, 2014
Pale golden. Large foamy white head and good lacing. Refreshing aroma with gras and hay, with a hint of coriander and lime. Fine taste with decent hop bitterness and long aftertaste.

Jarastlad (16) - Arlon, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2014
Nice head with fine bubbles. Quite a carbonated beer. Dark yellow colour, yet completely clear. The aroma is dominated by fruit and malt. I’d even dare to say citrus and banana. For the taste, the notes are also fruity with a citrus freshness, few hints of malt. The aftertaste is bitterness. Not much hops in there. Distinctive flemish tradition beer, very nice and refreshing, but according to me lacking the "hop punch" season beer usually have.

venom666 (315) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUN 29, 2014
Murky yelow color with rich and white persistent head. Mediam carbonation. Fruity aroma, with apple, pear and banana hints; also toffee and malts. Taste is fruity as well, lemon and banana also present, with low malt and pine hints. Bitter aftertaste. Very pleasant and refreshing.

skortila (4436) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma is slightly cheesy, has some citric fruitiness, some flowery tones, light honey. Hazy, golden coloured with a white head. The taste is likewise the aroma; quite yeasty with citric/floral hoptones. Medium carbonation. Dry, light-medium bodied. Decent style example, but nothing special.
