PalCabral's rating

PalCabral (159) - - MAY 19, 2013
Large bottle from systembolaget. Pours hazy light amber into the glass. The head is thick and frothy, indicating perhaps the use of wheat in the mash? The aroma is interesting, citrus and yeasty, not bad. The taste is unfortunately more bland or should I say one-dimensional. The hops take over and the softness in the palate cannot compensate for the lack of other flavors than prickly hoppiness. Its a good representative for Saisons and effective in being giving more thirst. Unfortunately, the taste lacks some complexity and it is likely the chaser will be another beer altogether.

BlazerT (759) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Orange, medium hazy with medium, off-white head. Very good head retention and lacing. Aroma is medium fruity and yeasty with lightly citrus (orange) and spicy (pepper) character. Also coriander and barnyard. Moderate malty backbone with some hay and grainy notes. Semi-sweet to sweet flavor, partly bitter (orange peel-like), finish is dry and yeasty. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Nice and funky with lightly spicy character.

Bottled, 330ml from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham, Gloucs. Hazy gold with white head. I have had this one for a while but it still tasted really quite fresh. There are grassy, hay like notes, oily hop notes, some bitterness, some floral notes. Slightly resinous later on. Decent.
