mile (3949) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average to large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint caramel, light floral fruitiness with light - some citrus/herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and floral fruitiness with light citrus/herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish - lightly sweetish with light floral fruitiness and light - some citrus/herbal hoppyness. Lacks spiciness usually found in saison - maybe champagne yeast just do not work here. OK being spanish brew (not really a saison) - not too sweet/not too much caramel.

Saeglopur (2201) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 10, 2016
330 ml bottle, bb 2/2017. Thanks to my EU Secret Summer Santa MonsterMagnet!
Amber, hazy body, with a big, frothy, lacing, light beige head.
Aroma of sparkling wine, lemongrass, citrus, some spices, slight barnyard.
Tastes dry, of lemon zest, lemongrass, peppery spices, sparkling wine, grass, some dough, some sweet bread, some sweet fruits, subtle pine.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with a quite fizzy carbonation.
Finishes bone dry, bitter, zesty, yeasty, spicy, a bit piney, subtly sweet, subtly alcohol warming.

Very nice. Dry, hoppy and spicy, with the champagne yeast well integrated, just providing some more crispness and fizziness. Overall not an outstanding style example maybe, but very well drinkable and characterful.
