Bottle

Thanks for sharing this one, Josh!

Slightly hazed golden yellow with a quickly forming, near-white head that leaves dots of lace down the glass. Pretty.

The aroma is a pleasant combination of banana, pepper, bread, and just a hint of funk.

The flavor is similar, with the banana flavors leading the way and the barnyard funk almost entirely hidden. There's a nice malty breadiness and a touch of sweetness. Well balanced and complete.

Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

A great, drinkable, classic version of the style. Very nice. I thought this was fantastic.

33cl bottle poured into tulip
pale yellow colour, massive white head that fills half the glass even with a careful pour.
Smells like fresh lemon, wheat and spices. Some traces of alcohol as well.
There's a citrus like freshness to the taste, along with yeast and some initial sweetness and a dry ending. The taste combined with plenty of carbonation makes for a very refreshing brew.

This is the only Saison I've had so far so I can't compare it to others of the same style, but I definitely enjoyed this beer and I'll be looking to pick up some other Saisons because of it.

Also, the dwarf's beard creeps me out a little. Actually, everything about him is just creepy.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

This gnome-person's beard is starting to get to me... Anyway, the beer pours a partly cloudy amber-gold topped by plenty o' white froth. The nose comprises wheat, clove, light grass, light sweet flowers, coriander, light lemon zest, and a touch of sourdough. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a pinch of nutmeg, a half-pinch of cinnamon, light cardamom, and a twist of orange. There is a sort of vaguely sweet spiciness throughout. It's a good thing (I really hope that's not trademarked somewhere...). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly grainy feel. Overall, a very solid saison, one of the better brews from Urthel, indeed.

On tap at Sessions Greensboro.Poured into a chalice a lemony color with a nice formed white head that held well,lemon pepper and barnyard funk in the nose,for me a bit off putting but for some great.Grainy and lightly toasted with herbal hop flavors,spiced phenols along with funk take over and linger into the finish.Iam not a huge saison fan but I was intruiged by the uniqness of this beer,in the end the funkiness was the main component of the beer I came away with.

Poured in a Pilsner glass from a 11.2 oz bottle, reviewed live.

A- Very thick white fluffy head. Four finger head. Some soapy linger and a two minute retention. Clouded amber color, yeasty remnants at the bottom. Nice steady but subtle carbonation.

S- Grainy smell, wheat and rye possibly? Slight hint of booziness. Some malty and sugary notes as well.

T- Malty and very sweet. Not like any other saison I've had before but very drinkable.

M- Grainy and light bodied. Mediocre carbonation.

O- Drinkable but not all that great. Glad I tried it though.

I bought this beer at the beershop of the Bierparadijs in Meer, Belgium.

Poured in my Struise glass this beer looks normal but with five fingers head there is a bit of a difference. Yellow fluid with some carbonation. The beer feels like you are drinking a whitebeer. Dry and crisp.

Poured a 3" white velvet head which good retention. Clear straw yellow colored body. Nice malt smell with a touch of sour. Taste repeats the smells but there's very little sour and instead some dried fruit. Finish shows the hops and lasts well. Pretty good overall.

Poured into Bruery Tulip with initial 3 fingers of head with subsided quickly to a heavy lacing that is still present after 5 minutes.

A- almost yellow orange hue with sediment floating around. Holding its heavy lacing with almost no effervescence.

S- true farmhouse nose with a lite hint of spice

T- light bodied saison with a warm backing as it rolls down the tongue, light spice but mostly yeasty notes.

M- medium light mouthfeel not sticky or dry.

O- I like it, its not the best saison I've had but its something I would consider getting again.
