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 (2978) - 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.
