From 32GP. In Teku glass. At dinner, with sausages + cheese sandwich. Brutal nose that I could be smelling all night, with soft notes to honey and orange and a taste that follows it very closely. Another masterpiece of these cracks of Naparbier. Avg 4.75.

14 May 2017. New label From Decervecitas. In Goose Island winecuplike glass. Playing 8Bit Adventures. Much below from what I remember of the previous label version. Just some funk with orange peel notes but pretty boring. Dry.

loving these spanish beers. this is some trolli candy right here tart sweet sour spicy. mmmm.

pours a delectable amber-golden-honey, one of those that you get some neon green at the edge of the glass in the shifting light. some nice lacing blah blah it was super fizzy as many of these wild spanish beers seem to be - must the the flight or the altitude? anyways, comes on with a structured assult of sweet-sour green apple honey sticks like you get at the fruit orchards in the fall an hour east of the cascades. Then, as the first sip slips down your gullet, it explodes into a riot of candied apple lemon tart full-on fizzy dryness.

do not let these dessert-themed descriptions deceive you - as you could already tell from its cover this beer is as sharp and serious as a scythe. indeed, it may be the just desserts you receive from its partaking, but a worthy course they be.

Tap at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore.

Light fizzy head, hazy nectar orange reddish color.

Nose fruity floral like aromas, little grassy, hint of farmhouse like funk, light citrus like hops character, little rind citrus, and rose flowery like.

Taste has a nice saison character, strong farmhouse funk with nice wet hay almost horsehair like funk. Then a nice floral character, with a light grassy straw hay like, then light saison spices, some fruity citrus rind, hint of a sweet malt back. Finish is drier but a bit sticky, lingering light saison farmhouse funk, little citrus rind, and some bitterness.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall quite nice. Good farmhouse funk, nice citrus and fruity flavors, light spices, tasty.

On-tap. ½ pt glass. Enjoyed on feb´13. Pours burnish brass in color & foggy appearance. Slightly off-white froth creates a dense & lasting crown. Intense resiny hops to the nose as well as notes of tangerine & orange juice. Smooth mildy maltiness at first sip is followed by increasing citric hoppiness. Light to medium body. Moderate to low carbonation. Dense texture & gentle lemon zest astringency in the middle. Dry resiny finish, rounded by citric juice hints, lingers into the aftertaste. Well balanced flavors & aromas. ABV well masked. Innovative Saison that is even suggested for AIPA & APA lovers. Delicious !!
