3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty good beer for the style. I can see why this is labeled a table beer.
You can drink it with most anything and not stumble away from the table. It smells like pilsner malt and looks like a wheat beer. Foamy head. It tasted
like a hoppy pilsner. Some citrus as well. Pretty basic and straightforward beer. The farmhouse yeast adds a sharpness that doesn’t work in every case but passes here. Worth a try.
Bottle from chucks hip shop. Crisp and clear with a large head after opening. Almost champagne like. Yeast is very nice and peppery and slightly tart. Quite refreshing and the low alcohol makes this a very good example of farmhouse style.

Pours a light straw gold with a foamy white head. It has a light grain and biscuit aroma with a flavor of bready yeast and a light body.

Super light cloudy hay color, stark white head. Very herbal, some funkiness, honey floral. Grassiness. Bitter, some light sourness, very dry. Light effervescent body, quite a lot of carbonation. Watery. Fine.

Poured into a tulip.
3.75 A: Well hazed yellow brown color. Big pillowy off-white head. Retention is good and a decent amount of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Grainy herbalness, flowers, dry woodiness. Grassy, hay, a touch of lemon, and earthy hoppiness.
4.0 T: Like the nose, but better. Layers of herbs and flowers. Woody with grass and hay. Earthy hops, lemon peel, and maybe a hint of apple.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess and super smooth.
3.75 D: Tasty and super drinkable.

THANK GOD, not oxidized. After two severely and unexplainedly oxidized bottles, this one finally has no signs of it (leave it to the delicately noble-hopped, ultra low abv beer to be the one that isn’t oxidized, haha).
Clear (bottles having sat cold for a long time) golden liquid has a small amount of bubbles rising to create a medium-sized white head that recedes rapidly to cover.
Lovely noble hops in the nose showcase meyer lemons, dry grass, light thyme and a touch of lime. That this low gravity of a beer has such a clean, clear, strong nose at 18-20 months is pretty incredible, I can only imagine what this must have smelled like fresh (and will hopefully find out soon, once I get more). Light yeast esters give a fresh plaster-like note which is distinctive and very intriguing/enjoyable.
Lemons, spongecake, fresh herbs and grassy hoppiness all combine in the flavor, with an almost brett-like zestiness from the yeast sitting in the background. Absolutely flawlessly clean and perfectly extracted malt. Not a touch of hop or yeast dirtiness, no doughiness and most importantly, no astringency/malt tannin, which at this low of a gravity, is a very impressive feat. Reminds me quite a bit of Batch 1 Redemption; one of my all time favorites. While this one is a bit more mild, even, than that one, it’s still incredible. Can’t get enough of the combination of hop and yeast phenols on the finish. Light body, but not thin (or more watery than it should be for its size). Carbonation is ample and tight. Hop bitterness is gracefully low throughout; something I can really get behind (perhaps that’s just preference but I’ll take this any day over XX bitter or Guineu Riner and the like)
As an after-note, even the bottom of the bottle with a bit more yeast inevitably mixed in, tastes amazing. If this is the only good bottle of the 10 I have, I’ll be happy enough (and will certainly be trading for fresh bottles of this).
750 ml bottle. From some Texas beer store.Brandman (2948) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2015
The bottle doesn’t say what batch is it but it’s bought before Oct 2013 so it must be batch #10 or earlier.
Cloudy yellow colour with a small white head.
Mild juicy fruity hops, mild yeast and some dry maltiness in the aroma.
The flavour is dry malt, grassy hops, mild bitterness, grainy notes and some spices.
Easy but enjoyable Saison. A bit thin though but hey... it’s only 2.9%.
Clear golden body, very small wihte head. Green hue. Aroma has light maltiness, noble hops, bit mellow yeast. Peppery notes. Flavour is quite mellow and phenoly peppery notes come through. Light sorbus, some acids, very nice yeasty notes. HenrikSoegaard (14176) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2015
