Heidbummer (1160) - SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2018
Keg, Salt Horse. Pours deep gold, some haze, lacy head. Oak, must, grape aroma. Lovely full mouthfeel. The initial taste is a big sour thing, but it quickly settles to a dense pear, oaky white wine and lemon sherbet complex number. Lovely Saison.

Palme (5024) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2018
0.75l bottle. Oh, a big big near everlasting just off-white head on this puppy. Will go as far and call it enormous and it's leaving some amazing white blondes on the sides of the glass. The beer itself has a nice orange near glowing orange cloudy color. Couldn't look any more inviting. The aroma is has that slightly lemony sour yeasty fantastic fresh saison expression, buy there is also strong traces of cellar and earthy basement. Fresh green slightly acidic apples and some gooseberries. Lots of wonderful subtle aromas here and they develop as the glass gains some temperature. It has a prickling about average carbonation level and a light gliding oily mouthfeel. Oh, it is super dry and really bitter, as good as no sweetness left here and it has a strong sourness, is it some sort of brett-sourness perhaps? In many way this reminds be of a dry semi sour white wine with a lemony twist. Lots of green grapes, hay and even a bit of salty lingon berries, or is I'd bitter dandelions? . It's wonderful flavorful this, and I'm no longer in any doubt this has to be bretted. Will definitely be having this again! 31.10.2013

harrisoni (20052) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2018
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy orange gold colour lasting white head. Some sourness. Some white grape flavour. Some lemon. Some saison yeast character but mostly a white wine barrel grape sourness. Yep pretty good. Slightly sour finish.

alteregoo (1963) - Kalisz, POLAND - JAN 27, 2018
Obfita, drobna piana, złota, lekko mętna barwa. W zapachu białe i żółte owoce, siano, piwnica, odrobina przypraw... Smak lekko kwaskowy (posmak octu jabłkowego i dyni marynowanej), lekko miodowy, lekko funky i ziołowy. Średnie, drobne wysycenie, pikantny posmak.
Raczej mdły, mulący a nie rześki saison ze słodką i octową nutą, wyraźnie rustykalny, wpływ beczki po winie in minus...
