COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison brewed with honey, coriander and lemon verbena. Fermented with a mixed culture of classic saison strains, wild yeast, and bacteria. Post fermentation, the beer was conditioned in stainless steel for 6 weeks with its primary mixed culture. A third and final fermentation completed this beer in the bottle. Pockets of Sunlight is a radiant saison full of crisp energy.

500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (4:1:4:2:8=1.9)
Gusher - as expected (thanks, Lars!). Part of the pour - do I mean pour? I mean the emergency liquid-gathering as the bottle spooged all over the counter - was possibly misty, but 80% was cloudy. Apple cider aroma. Ahhh, someone needs to read Palmer. Tastes of "wild yeast and bacteria", or, as we condense to one word, "infection". Yeasty sour tang above an otherwise simple sour apple maltiness. Cloudier glass was mellower but still poor. Vinegar hint, just to put sprinkles on the turd. Complete mess, and an insult to the word "saison". Do they think "saison" means "out of control"? For sanity, pour the yeast in; for safety, don't even open the bottle. Fucking amateurs. Pockets of sunlight? Fuckit's of bumshite, more like.

Juks (941) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 15, 2017
Bottle, thanks FatPhil. Gusher. Top-pour clear golden, bottom-pour hazy bright yellow, small fizzy white head. Aroma is fruity, citrussy, apples, woody. Taste is sour, apple cidery, lemony. Bottom-pour is kinda creamy and soft. Wateriness in finish. Nothing special, just another sour. You have to imagine, if you want to see saison here, but still, taste is not bad.

Rask0lnikov (1396) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2017
Bottle. Beer jumped out from the bottle. Pours golden yellow colour. Moderate white head. Beautiful, earthy aroma: barnyard, funk, lemon peel, leather, sourness, slight acidity, woody aspects. Dry, crisp, citrussy beginning. White wine or champage in the middle. Slightly bitter, woody, earthy and crisp finish. Notes of white wine in the aftertaste. Light bodied, crisp and nicely carbonated farmhouse with thick bubbles. Really surprising finding. Very good.

375ml bottle pours a golden color with a bit of head. Bright zesty slight sourness. Lemony. Nice easy going balance.

Beautiful cloudy yellow gold, white head. Bright lemon, floral. Lightly bitter, quite dry. A bit of apple. Good.

Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2017
Bottle shared in Keystone - picked up at Mr. B's. Gusher! Pours hazy yellow with a foamy, white head. The nose has some Camembert rind in the nose - lots of it - some crispy hay, pale grains. Light sweet flavour with moderate acidity, more cheese rind, mellow bitter hay. Light bodied with massaging carbonation. Drying finish, with some tart lemon, funny cheese peel notes, a little cracked wheat, crispy hay. Enjoyable overall.

larsga (7625) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2017
Gusher. As expected. Small white head. Hazy opaque yellow body. Funky fruity herbal witch’s brew with sweaty socks and candy notes. One of a kind, really. Dry-acidic cardamom, oranges, and roquefort taste with astringent apple notes. Mid-bodied. Sharply fizzy mouthfeel. Dry sharpish wet sheep and mouldy cheese aftertaste with soda pop notes. A bizarre melange of flavours that in no way gels or harmonizes. Not sure I can finish this, to be honest. (About 0.5l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen.)

Jashiu (1404) - Gdañsk, POLAND - AUG 12, 2017
Bottle @Pułapka, Gdańsk.
Bretty funk in the front of the aroma. Behind the barnyard and hay some citrus. Delicately sour and a bit sweet fruitiness. Very tasty and mellow

Vells (1894) - Rīga, LATVIA - AUG 10, 2017
Nice lemon kick, floral, herbal aspect, light fresh grassy, light sweetness with moderate tartness. Nive balance and refreshing, but nothing too fancy.
