Coming in a 330ml brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; bottled on 03/01/2014, BB 03/07/2014, served mildly-chilled in a straight pint glass.
A: dark yellow-ish straw colour, coming with very light haze, lively carbonation, and a fairly thick off-white frothy head.
S: zesty citric, sour yeasty, lightly spicy upfront, with a mild whiff of malt sweetness; Nelson Sauvin at best contributes a bit more lemony and mixed fruitiness on the nose. Overall very nicely executed with a colourful profile, with nothing bold to display.
T: a good swallow of grainy malts and wheat precedes a fundamentally tangy and dry palate rendered by the yeasts’ work as well as the good amount of hops; the aftertaste is lightly tannic bitter and dry, leaving a little bit of zesty lemony undertone and lingering spiciness.
M&O: softly carbonated, medium-bodied, showing a sound balance b/w a low level of sweetness, acidic yeastiness and good hop bitterness. Less overpowering in terms of fruitiness than 01|01 Saison (Citra) and benefiting from a bit higher level of attenuation. Very easy drinking and likeable.
