Bubbles + Apples + Wild Yeast photo (16) Named after the ancient Greek goddess of beer, this is an equally divine Belgian-style saison with a copious amount of New Zealand hops, freshly harvested Somerset apple juice and wild yeast added to the mix. However, we like to take things just that bit further (its the Wild way!) once bottled the beer undergoes a secondary fermentation with champagne yeast, giving it a brisk spritziness on the tongue. Serve chilled in a champagne flute to allow the bouquet of playfully aromatic notes to be fully appreciated. Take a sip to enjoy a further cascade of striking and sensuous flavours alongside the carefree champagne-like spritziness. The long, dry finish is both refreshing and complex.

FatPhil (15814) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 15, 2017
KeyKeg (TCBW2017) (6-:3-:6-:3-:11=2.9---- /> Starchy aroma, fruity and citrussy hops. Misty pale straw, tight head settles to a ring. Starchy taste, fruity hops again. Watery-ish body, decent carbonation. Sweetish finish introduces little new. Moderately drinkable, and does cover the alcohol well. Does have a strong lager feel to it, more than an aleyness. As such, makes good tramp juice.

Marduk (7490) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 11, 2017
Tap @TCBW 2017. Clear amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Citrus, grassy, fruity, herbal, sweetish and bit damp in aroma. Citrus, fruity, herbal, some perfume in taste. Medicinal and herbal in aftertaste. Harsh to drink. Maybe its booze, but cant quite get pure alcohol from taste. Messy brew.

Arcanor (408) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2017
750ml bottle. Pour hazy yellow orang with minimal foam. Aroma of traditional season, plus cheese Belgian yeast. Taste is on the same pattern as the aroma plus some spice notes like conifer and bread notes. Medium body and high carbonation. Refreshing, salty and a good dose of alcohol.

Gangstergafje (1039) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
Had the beer during the 2016 Kompaan Bloedbroeder festival.The beer looks simple. The color of the beer is light yellow, with a slight cloudiness. On top of the beer there is a rough white layer of foam. The beer looks a little like a weizener. The smell is a bit like a saison. Nice fruity tones give the beer a sweet, freshly sour and a bit bitter touch. I also smell some clear yeast aromas, which most Belgium ales tend to have. There are also some bready malt touches, which are nice together with the zesty fruit aromas. There is a good blend between bitter, sweet and slight sour. The taste is also good. I taste pear and apple and some raisin. The beer has a nice sweetness, slight sourness and a nice bitterness. It is in good balance. It is a bit like a blend between a Belgian Ale and a Saison. There is a nice yeasty Belgian Ale touch and the hops and fruits of a saison. I like it. The palate is nice. It has a nice amount of gas, that propels the taste and aroma nicely and tingles the tongue in a nice way. Nice beer.

Rask0lnikov (1182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 15, 2017
750ml bottle. Thanks, Harri! Pours, golden yellow colour. High white head. Sweetness, grain, grassy, bit earthy notes in the aroma. Slightly sweet, bit caramelly beginning. Slight yeast and candy sugar in the middle. Dry finish. Grapes and hints of dry riesling in the aftertaste. Rather medium bodied, complex brew.

onceblind (9175) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2017
Hazy sunshiney golden under a large bubbly rocky white head. Big bright estery dusty apricot and champagne yeasty esters and a kiss of apple. Bright dry funky fruit tones with the same peachy apricot tones from the nose with a long, dry, funky complex finish. Pretty funky and applet and bubbly and complex.
