May 31st, 2011 - When Spring turns into Summer and the sun gets to be a little heavier in the sky, the fun and heady wheat beers of a month ago lose some of their potency. Something drier, with a heavier grain profile becomes a more suitable beer for cutting the sweat and anguish of an oppressive day. The Colette is a perfect fit for these transitional days, beautiful and burning bright with a dandelion yellow hue and a finger of soft, white foam. Banana and clove and a little corn tortilla rise from the surface, giving off light but coating smells. Fresh and full of grains, Great Divide did an excellent job of capturing the smell of the fields and putting that romantic image into a bottle. Full bodied and busy with a sharp and serrated aftertaste, the Colette can cut through dry mouth or thirst, with ample uplifting alcoholic corn and tortilla and flowery dandelion tastes, like bitter mizuna greens, a subtle vegetable bitterness and again, flowing dry graininess.

Bottle, gift from Helsinki. BB in two months. Pours near clear gold with small off-white head. Yeast, some yellow stone fruits, not too refreshing, kinda savoury, slight coriander-like spiciness, finishes dry and yeasty. Would probably be somewhat better very fresh. Not a fan. I think my first Saison with rice... blynde77 (16) - - OCT 1, 2017
Flavorful, slightly aromatic, and light colored. Not as strong as other farmhouse ales, but solid taste and good finish.

Beer of a light yellow colour, with a medium white head. Fruity, wheaty and malty aroma with a mysterious note of cheese, probably from yeast. Taste is sweet, wheaty and lightly hoppy. Carbonation is medium, and the bitterness low. Rune (13352) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2017

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2017 Spicenose, eine klare heugelbe Optik und ein hefig bananiger WhiteWinePunch lassen Puristen aufhorchen, aber irgendwie sind alle Aromen und Flavours relativ überzogen ausdefiniert. Und als Ganzes wirkt das auch so, kräftig und nicht gerade filigran. Ich trinke Fassware im Strongbows Kiel. 4,50Euro/0,3.
