PilsnerPeter's rating

3.6
PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Notes from my backlog: Pours a murky copper with a tan ring of head. Sweet fruity aroma- figs, dried apricot simple. Rounded body. Fruity flavor as well with a light tartness. Green raisin, apricot, some minty undertones. Pretty unique. Similar to a Fantome.

MrTipple (4782) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2017
Intense barnyard, rotting cheese, grain malts, dusty straw, light citrus fruits. Almost clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light bitter. More bitter citrus fruits, zesty, light acidity, barnyard, grain malts, yeast, bread dough, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Interesting Saison, quite strong, nice citrus fruits. Bottle from Beers’n’More, Zurich.

Grzesiek79 (4274) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 19, 2017
Many thanks for this beer to CH-303. Bottle 33cl and it is 7% ABV (Version with Yakima Hops). Sour, hops, Sour, hops, Sour, Hops, Sour and hops. I’m forget about something??? Yes This...beer is strong sour and perfectly and powerfull hoppy Ale:) Wonderfull hops aroma, taste like lime, fresh yellow citrus and strong sourly lemon juice, like a wild yeast sediment. Big and strong foam, absolutly dry, no sugary. I’m love it. Smells like fresh green apple. Thanks for this great sour saison ale Asbjorn.

Ernest (7658) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, corn starch), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with notes of lemon taffy, plastic, pear syrup. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean/plastic. Medium body, velvety/watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. If not for the plastic-and-taffy odor and aftertaste, this could be pretty nice. It could use more finishing bitterness as well. Cleaner fermentation (presumably) would probably take this to mid/upper 3s territory.

weark (787) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Bouteille achetée Au Grain D’Orge - Version Yakima - De couleur dorée translucide avec une mousse blanche correcte - Au nez des arômes de fut de chêne, les levures font penser au brett, citroné, herbacée, bien épicée, une pointe de blé, nez superbe - En bouche citroné, épicé, bonne amertume, le blé est bien présent, toujours cette impression de barrique superbe, pas d’acidité et qqch qui se rapproche des brett, un poil résineuse - Corp léger/moyen, amertume moyenne, carbonation pétillante, sèche et amère, final amère épicée et citronée - Superbe bière, quelques incertitude concernant la composition mais belle réalisation vraiment funky

2.1
CH-303 (2197) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2016
Appearance: Hazy pale yellow. Slight white head.
Aroma: Tart fruit, not much else for me.
Taste: Sour, tart fruit. Not very saison to me, more of a sour/wild ale...
Bought: La Petite Brasserie (Fribourg), 330 ml, CHF 4.70
Info: 10/12-2016, BB: ??/??-????

2.7
ClarkVV (6641) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Draught at Julian’s, 11/6/16.
Mostly clear, bright, blonde-bronze body is topped by a small, fleeting, white head.
The nose is full of both fruity, rather citrusy hops, as the name would suggest and lightly fruity esters. Light greenery, woody notes and a pinch of pine and grapefruit rind don’t really impress so much as dull the Belgian character. Light lactic acid on the finish and a rather grainy, sparse malt profile behind it, with no alcohol or flaw.
Surprisingly quite tart in the mouth; much more than the aroma suggested, with lots of lactic character and light grapefruit/pine from the hops. Not resinous, yet nor is it particularly enjoyable, just being rather bitter and not working well with the sourness and thin, nearly over-attenuated body/texture. Grainy, dry, too acidic. Blah.

3.6
anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 10, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Tap at CBFZ 2016. Intense saison yeast and peppers. Some farmhouse, balanced by some grassy aroma hops. High bitterness, good sweetness, lively carbonation. Light sourness, tart. Short finish except for a lasting bitterness. Good.

mmargarucci (343) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - NOV 18, 2015
On tap erzbierschof bern. Pours a pale color. Aroma is sour and yeasty with a hint of bitter hop. Taste is very sour forward with a slightly hoppy finish. Good not great something is a touch off for me.
