UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Hazy golden colored, small white head. Very nice spicy nose, grain, herbal, orange, some citrus even. Flavor may even be better than aroma, fruit, spices, yeast, bitter and somewhat dry in finish. Very well balanced. Wonderfully complex and still easy to drink. I’m very much impressed, truly a very nice Saison.

Flaska systembolagets beställningssortiment. Orange kulör. Kryddig doft med övermogna äpplen och aprikos. Liknande i smak. Möjligtvis lite ingefära. Om man vill. Aningen bitter

Hugely overrated beer. Very generic saison without any additional character, mellow and additionally not too refreshing.

0,75l bottle from Beergium. Clear, orange golden beer with huge cloudy white head. Aroma has grain, light malts, sweet fruits and light sour and spicy feeling. Taste has sweet light malts, fruits, grass, sourness and spicies. Dry and bitter aftertaste with pepper. Fresh, beautiful and interesting beer, which turns onto too bitter and sour end.

750ml bottle Aroma: faint notes of carameled malt, a little red wine and hint of barnyard funk Appearance: a light copper color and a solid white head with great retention Taste: a slight fruity sweetness on the front with notes of orange and apricot. Mid palate stays strong with awesome carbonation carrying the fruit notes throughout and rounds out the fruit flavor with a cloying sweetness and an almost overwhelming bitterness from the barnyard funk. Smells great, looks great, starts great and really falls off on the end. A slightly disappointing first Lost Abbey for me

Fules (1227) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 20, 2017
Nagy, tartós hab, mély borostyán szín. Gabonás, fűszeres illat. Erőteljes fűszeres ízvilág, borsos, szegfűszeges, egy hajszálnyit édeskés és csípős gyömbéres, kardamomos aromákkal. Közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén kesernyés és egy picit alkoholos. Finom, gazdag ízvilágú sör, de nekem egy picit túltolták, egy kissé lehetne visszafogottabb.

A yeasty after taste compliments the earthy texture of this slightly hoppy backwoods brew. Fruity pine needle flavor is immediately noticeable after chewing through the first half of the bottle. Overall, fantastic.

Turtles (2653) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2017
750ml bottle from Systembolaget. Slightly hazy golden giant white head that takes its fair time, rich lacing. Fruity aroma, mild funk, peppery yeast, oranges, peaches, cardamom, soap, wheat and grass. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation., medium bodied. The taste follows the aroma, peppery and soapy yeast, ripe orange and peach, white pepper, mild ginger, bitter orange, gentle notes of barnyard in the background. Pleasantly crisp and bitter finish.
