Frudel (164) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle in Iceland. Backlog. the bottle pours a golden/orange liquid with a white head. Aroma is yeasty, orange, wheat, peppery. Sightly dry, heavily carbonated. Peppery, belgian saison yeast, fruity esters, quite decent. Crisp on the tongue with the fizzy texture.

sulawang (1134) - - FEB 18, 2017
Visual: Pours bright marmalade orange with a smallish dissipating head, ringed with spotty island retention, clusters of micro steady streams.

Nose: heavy honeyed barley malt. (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: crisp bite, light tingly-fizz, dense honey malt impression

Mid-palate: honey-chamomile, (lvl-5-sweetness), almost salty, slight tanginess, light candi barley malt

Finish: residual honeyed barley malt

Summary: This drinks more like a Belgian tripel with it’s chamomile honey profile as opposed to the banana-citrusy wheat malt I usually find in typical saisons. There’s also a bit of saltiness in the mids which I found distracting.
