Countbeer (6407) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2017
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Hazy darker orange body. White fluffy head. Nose seems to be like that of a classic Belgian Saison. Yet seconds later it changes... its a player.... Yeast, some wheat and corn, citrussy, honey, grains, malts... Flavour is dominated by a bit more alcohol and growing bitterness. Some honey, yeast, marzipan, light butter, herbal tint, even some caramel... strange but decent. Aftertaste is malty, bitter, bit herbal, bit yeasty... low carbo, lightly blown mouthfeel... Good nose! Medium body... mwa...

Alengrin (5006) - BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2017
Amsterdam saison (or, to concisely explain the concept to Anglo-Saxons: farmhouse ale), from a bottle bought at the Mitra shop of Lelystad. Thick and densely moussy but regularly shaped, egg-white head, very stable and remaining closed for a long time, over a hazy warm amber coloured beer with salmon pinkish tinge. Aroma of fresh orange peel (clearly the Cascade), straw, unripe peach, lightly toasted bread, peanuts, lemon orchard, jute, unsugared muesli, dry leaves, red apple, raw turnip, sweetish field flowers, hints of nectarine, sourdough, honey, redcurrant, old cookies. Mildly estery onset, juicy fruitiness of peach, some pineapple and dried banana sweetishness with a souring, gooseberry-like edge, medium carbonated, minerally aspects, smooth and supple, lean mouthfeel, creamy due to the oats, bit resinous too. Caramelly and even lightly honeyish malt sweetness in the middle with ongoing fruitiness on top, deeper sourish grainy note of spelt but subtly so, dryish towards the finish with more and more phenols (old cloves - luckily no medicinal or chemical side effects), some bready yeastiness but subduedly so, minerally side flavors and a drying, softly bittering, dried citrus peel-like hoppiness with floral and spicy aspects to it; after all this, a glow of warming, whisky-ish alcohol lights up, but only to accentuate the flavors rather than pulling them apart with wryness. Elegant and clean interpretation of the style, technically completely flawless (which always scores high in my book) but lacking a bit in rural roughness, attenuation and hayish or floral hoppy character to qualify as a true, authentic saison - which it clearly isnt. I guess the aim was to imitate modern American farmhouse ale (which is often far removed from what I as a Belgian see as saison) but, more than anything, I actually find its cleanness, creaminess and relative sweetness very reminiscent of French bire de garde, hadnt it been for the New World hop kiss. Whatever: this is an enjoyable and well-made ale for sure.

JorisPPattyn (9829) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2017
Good dense, light-cream head, fed by fine carbonation in faintly hazy orange-amber beer. Citrus, yeast, esters, bit of fatty acids even, banana. Same impression in the flavour. Fusels, yeast byproducts; bit spicy, sharpish. Light sourness, again fatty acid-likd. Bit caramel, certainly warming up. Bit of oxydation too. Medium bodied, good carbonation, slick to oily feel. "Farmhouse ald". Which is pretty much as saying "anything". Which is a good description of this beer.

R4N5H (1035) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2017
33cl bottle bought at the De Prael bottle shop, and poured into a snifter at home on 15-Jan-2017. Hazy orange amber colour with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of citrus, sweet malt and pine. Medium body and heavy carbonation. Sweet fruit, apricot, and honey. Heavy bitterness. Nice tart hoppy finish. A full bodied hoppy farmhouse ale.
