"A true seasonal beer, as refreshing as it should be! Taste it in the summer, sitting at a terrace table … " Originally, season beer was a beer brewed before the summer and intended for summer-season farmhands. It had low alcohol content and a marked bitterness that made it really refreshing. We wanted to offer a truly seasonal Season with production limited in time. As Laurent Agache’s

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Cloudy golden color with a white head. Strong green pepper character to the nose. Mild lemon zest, sweet bread, and a lot of yeast. A fairly strong floral quality and some grass notes. A bit lemony on the palate and fairly grassy as well. Some sweet bread, the same pepper skin, and some floral hops. A light bitterness on the finish.

At De Republiek, Bruges. Pours hazy dark yellow with a minimal, white head. The aroma contains hops, yeast, sugar, herbs and flowers. It tastes light flowery sweet and light herbal bitter, with a dry finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, slick texture. I like the flowery accent but it lacks some more character, whilst the carbonation is overdone...

Pours a clear golden body with a thin head. Flowery aroma of hops. Taste is flowery hops and some subtle funk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle bought at IC Beer in Kwun Tong.

Looks: Clear light golden colour with a ring of dirt like yeast sediments; Three finger head with long lasting crumpety white foam; Beautiful sticky lacing with active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant full malt, with strong sweet floral, blueberries, sugar, wood, spices, light herbs, dry biscuits, yeast, lemon and fair grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet full Pils malt, with strong floral, very light molasses, spices, strong earth, tobacco, strong herbs, dry biscuits, strong yeast, lemon, strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Medium body. Dry, thick and very creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Rich Pils maltyness in a thick background, very creamy and smooth. Sweetness is only a hint, as bitter floral and strong hops dominates - very herbal, woody , tobacco and spices - to blend well with dry biscuity and very lemony finish. Very nice!

Hoppiness: Wood, spices, light herbs, lemon and fair grass in nose. Strong floral, spices, strong earth, tobacco, strong herbs, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent herbal malty finish.

After Taste: Dry. Creamy, earthy woody and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has impressive heads and looks, sweet floral and woody aroma, creamy body but more surprisingly, a very low sweet, strong bitter hoppiness with all the earthy tobacco taste came through. It has that conservative old lady feel to it. Very nice already but a little more sweetness will go a long way for sure. One for Summer!

En boutelle. Dorée, peu de mousse. Nez discret légèrement herbacé. Ronde en bouche, franche amertume, pétillance et fin de bouche de fleur de sureau qui lui apporte toute son originalité. Délicieuse et rafraîchissante.

Banzale (311) - FRANCE - MAR 4, 2017
Bu au festival brassicole de tournai. Verre de 12,5cl. Couleur jaune pâle , pas de brillance et trouble . Mousse qui est abondante mais qui redescend assez rapidement. Au nez : note céréales et sucre (fleur de sureau). En bouche : pas de surprise c’est rond en bouche , note de sucre , et de céréales orge et malts . Moelleuse et structurer mais sèche en fin de bouche . Rafraîchissement garanti .

Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, Couleur blonde grosse effervescence mousse vite déliquescente Nez sur la levure Bière levurée avec un goût de malt juste raffraichissante.

SylvainCFC (245) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2017
Robe blonde pâle un peu pastel, claire, peu de mousse, mauvaise rétention. Nez très clair sur les fleurs de sureau, notes végétales, herbeuses, c’est frais. Petit citronné. Attaque sur une amertume végétale très tranchée. Le sureau se dégage également à l’attaque. Bouche franchement houblonnée, végétale, herbeuse et terreuse. Légèrement poivrée. Final toujours amer avec une astringence assez importante (zeste,peau d’agrume). Bière très sèche, arôme intéressant de sureau. Astringence un peu trop forte pour une faire une saison facile de soif. Déséquilibre sur l’amertume.

The Etruscan (685) - Tuscany, ITALY - JAN 14, 2017
White foam full lasting head. Golden colour. Aroma is hoppy with apple and pear notes. Flavor is moderately hoppy with pear and apple tones, slightly citrusy and spicy, ending in a gently sour finish, light to medium bodied.

guzgorog (867) - FRANCE - DEC 14, 2016
Robe jaune pale trouble, mousse blanche moyenne qui se tient bien. Nez de levure, légèrement sureau, levain. Attaque acide et sûre, sur les baies de sureau, assez prégnant, notes de lvures et céréales. Corps léger, carbo moyenne. Je trouve que les baies de sureau sont trop présentes, mal équilibrée, pas vraiment le genre de bière que j’apprécie.

SlackerMads (3360) - DENMARK - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden and effervescent with a large off white head with good retention, lace and regeneration. Dry green plants, flowers, dry grass, hay and elderflower in the nose. Lots of elderflower in the flavour with dry green plants, dry grass and flowers too. Lively carbonation, low sweetness, fine bitterness, dry finish. I am not a big fan of elderflower and in this case it comes of a bit vegetal combined with the other flavours.
