Batch #2 - 10.14.2014.
Moderate pour yields a 3/4 white head over a light golden body with no lacing. Nose of very slight funk (cellar floor, blue cheese), citrus (grapefruit), and a bit of the briny sea. Taste of mostly citrus with a bit of salinity. Finishes dry and somewhat crisp. Good feel and overall, a great little saison right here. Cheers to Austin and an old trading partner JSR.

L- Pours a nice light colored straw beer with a half finger head head. Looks the part for sure.
S- Oyster mushroom, sea brine, lemon, brett and yeast. Crisp and fresh smell.
T- Salt, mushroom, a very present umami savory flavor is also. It must be the oyster. Very pleasant and toned down flavor. Well grounded.
F- Not as dry as I expected. Not bad though.
O- This is a very, very good saison made by a very great brewery. I see where they're going with this beer and like it a lot. It falls a bit short on the flavor to an extent but it's still delicious nonetheless. It may be a little toned down on the flavor and lacks some depth but its overall extremely well made and very original.

I’ve had Snörkel before but this time I had batch #5, ABV 4.20%. I think Snörkel is the most perfect Pizza beer. The flavor and the aroma has notes of mushrooms and burned bread, a little bit of salt, and it is tart, all of which makes you crave Pizza.

Look: semi-clear light yellow with an inch white head.

Aroma: lemony tartness, a little bit of brett funk, and mushroom pizza

Taste: The taste is earthy mushrooms, but not too much, and I taste slightly burned bread and salt, there’s a little bit of funk, it is moderately tart, and overall it is really very nice.

Feel: light, crisp, a little bit of carbonation, a bit dry.

Appearance - Pours light cloudy lemon color with white head which settles to a think ring around the glass.

Aroma - Sea salt, funk, very earthy aroma and some light tart lemon.

Taste - Very earthy flavor from the mushrooms, lots of sea salt, slightly funky.

Feel - Light prickly carbonation, tart slightly dry finish.

Overall - A great saison reminds me more of an earthy gose.
