Cappello di schiuma persistente. Colore oro scarico e opalescente. Al naso brett e note fruttate. In bocca si apre una bella acidità che rende la birra altamente beverina e molto piacevole. Una delle migliori saison che ho bevuto.

DiarmaidBHK (5921) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 Draft at Mekong. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Solid barnyard on the tongue. Lovely blend of horse blanket and sour notes on the nose. Finished clean. Nice!

Zlotta (3826) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2017
0.33 l bottle from ’Etre Gourmet’, best before July 2018. Slow gusher. Slightly hazy, golden amber with a large, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, sourish, quite funky, fruity and slightly floral aroma of lemon, gooseberry, oak, barnyard and some vinegar. Slightly sweetish, quite sour, funky, fruity and slightly floral taste of lemon, rhubarb, gooseberry, oak, some hay and quite a bit of vinegar, followed by a medium long, rather tart, slightly woody-dry and a bit grassy finish. Medium body, quite astringent and rather effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite complex, intense and refreshing, a bit too much vinegar maybe, but overall a really tasty beer!

DwarfeD (3539) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2017
Bottle shared with a friend. Hazy golden with a medium white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Well balanced bitter and sour tones. Oak, grapes, herbs, malts and grass. Tasty saison.

3.8
geolgau (468) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - MAY 14, 2017
Aroma: sour fruits, bread, pineapple, a bit of pale malts. A bit woody, which is nice. Taste follows along the nose, adding some yeast along the sourness (detected sour berries). Nice, long and pleasant bitter-sour ending. Really nice.

4.2
AssKicker (657) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 11, 2017
Bue à la pression. Couleur jaune assez opaque, fine mousse qui tient sa race. Nez cidré et bien fruité. Douce en bouche avec de grosses notes de pomme et de citron, très agréable, et une bonne pointe vinaigrée sans être ragoutante pour autant. Probablement plus une Sour qu’une Saison, mais ça n’en demeure pas moins super agréable à boire. Du très bon !
