0.5l bottle. It’s alive this! Slightly gushing my kitchen desk, but in the glass it has a cloudy, glowing slightly yellow-golden look with a massive and everlasting fluffy just off-white top. Have to admit that it looks pretty awesome this. The aroma has a nice sweet-fruity yeasty thing. Some sweet grapefruit with dried orange zest and saison yeast. Smells quite alright also. The taste? Hmm.. A soft infection on the verge, no doubt, with loads of bitter citrus peal and grapefruits. Soft traces of honey near the finish. Somewhat dry in the mouth and it has a flowery and soft pepper-burning aftertaste. Not something I would want to drink loads of, but an interesting and quite complex saison undoubledy. 22.12.2012 gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2013
50 cl bottle from Doorstep Brew. Looks like they missed typing out the BB date. Sampled on January 14, 2013.mmahut (1859) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 22, 2012
Hazy golden color, huge lasting white to off-white head with plenty of lacing. Spicy, cinnamon, clove, some citrus, fresh scent. Bitter, pith, fruit peel, alcohol, yeast, phenoles taste. Bitter grapefruit aftertaste. Fairly smooth low co2 mouthfeel, though a tad weak. Medium high dry resinous bitterness.
Turns cloudy with yeast streaks all around with the later pours. Bitterness also enhanses with the added yeast and sediment.
Pours with mountain heavy head that lasted for ages. Really, ages. I was waiting like 5 minutes until it got itself under control. Longest 5 minutes of my life as I wanted to taste it so bad. One of these waiting like you remember from your childhood when you were all done with your Christmas dinner but had to wait for your parents to finish their meal first before going to the Christmas gifs - that kind of waiting. Hazy amber body color, noticeable carbonation on appearance. Spicy and sour aroma thought the foam. Herbal and earthy, similar to Melissa flower. Less spicy on the taste, but you can still feel the peppercorn, here I’ve got more fruit characters followed by sweetness. Hoppiness appears from the background. After a while the bitterness from the hops overwhelm the fruity sweetness. Interesting how the peppercorns flavour sticks to the foam. Light body with high but pleasant carbonation.
No best before date on the bottle, not sure what to think about that. Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012
A hazy golden colored beer, with a thick white head. The aroma of fruits with spices and a little hop. The taste is flat sweet with a little hop and spices. The aftertaste is some sweet with bitterness. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2012
