TET (2987) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2014
A cloudy, golden, strongly bubbling beer, a head is clouding, big and blond. The nose is fruitfull, strongly sour, citrusfruits and green apples. Very refreshning beer that temptates to taste. Taste is strongly sour, green apples, also hint of other fruits. The end is quite dry, some spices. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Strongly sour saison where the fruitness is playing the side-role. Refreshning and good. obguthr (6294) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Tart crabapple nose with ketchup and currant overtones. Cloudy amber, thick head, good retention and adherence to the glass. Oak, crabapple, cranberry, and brett. Quite a sour saison, but hey, it’s BFM. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
