dmschefke (575) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2009
500ml bottle thanks very much to madmitch76 for throwing this beauty in as a bonus. 2008 harvest. Pours a hazy orange with yellow hue, medium off white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, slight floral, pine, grass, and yeast. I started drinking this before I read the description, so first tastes were a bit of a shock. Once I read the label, I realized exactly what I was drinking. This is quite a nice brew. Wet hopped, bottle conditioned with saison yeast, giving it a pretty unique character. Hop profile is very flavorful and enjoyable, slight tartness from the yeast, and a nice malt backbone for some balance. Mouthfeel is slightly slick and finishes slightly dry and bitter. Very nice.

Arômes de fruits tropicaux, de caramel, de pamplemousse et de houblon. En bouche on retrouve des saveurs douces à l'amertume prononcé pour des notes de malt, de caramel, de pin, d'ananas, d'agrumes et de houblons. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pawos (161) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 6, 2017
Kolor jasny, złocisty, lekko zmętnione. W aromacie trochę amerykańskich chmieli - pomarańcza, limonka. W smaku piwo jest raczej wytrawne. Mocna, zalegająca goryczka. Posmak chmielowy
