Aggiebob (2420) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 9, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2019 Orange gold color poured with a paper thin white head maintained by steady stream of carbonation bubbles. The aroma is fruity with notes of plum, cherry, and clove/spices. The taste is a bit funky, typical of farmhouse ales.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2018 From can at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont Circle. Clear golden with white head. Sweet, fruity aroma. Smooth saison with only a mild tartness.

Can from Craft Brewed. Pours a clear gold with 2 full fingers of foam that lingers. Estery saison yeast nose with black pepper, clove and banana. Bone dry on the palate with pepper and pith. Slightly warming with quite a bitter finish for the style.

According to its description, "[Hopfenstark Saison Station 55] is seen against the brewing revival in Belgium." I would say that statement isn't exaggerated at all. This Saison drinks like the Belgian examples, and it's just as pretty and technically stunning. Effervescent clear golden yellow pour. Clove, pepper, flowers, and grass on the nose. Spicy and earthy flavor profile. Bread-like malt. It's a taste that's so cohesive that it's difficult to separate the individual parts. There's a hint of citrus. Finish is crisp, refreshing, and moderately bitter.

hrabren (3632) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 26, 2017
0.33 l can from Hoppiness, Koper, Slovenia. Shared at a drinking session with Višnja 666 and Pilot Goran in the summer of 2017. Thanks! Murky golden, creamy white head, some visible sediment. Spicy and herbal, sugary, yeasty. Very sweet, some dryness develops later on. Thick and sticky texture, medium body, moderate carbonation, sweet finish. Very sweet and sticky with a slight lack of spices or hops.

3.7

3.2
