A Berliner Wiesse fermented with saffron... this could be interesting...

The beer pours hazy and, WOW, that color! Deep yellow-orange with a one finger head that disappears fast with no lacing on the glass

Nose: Saffron, citrus, tart smell, dough, hay and sweet orange.
Taste: Sour, tart, saffron, orange, vanilla and honey.
Mouth: Medium carbonation. Medium body. Smooth. Sweet and tart.

Saffron tends to divide people - Either you love or hate it!
I like saffron and and I like this beer!

The colour is deep. Depp saffron-yellow with a tint of beige. The liquid is cloudy. The finger thick head is compact and yellow; it sinks down to a thin lid leaving no lacing.

The smell is sour-tart with lime and a touch of chemicals. District heavy notes of saffron and saffron buns.

The taste is tart-sweet with lime juice and some earth. Hints of fresh orange juice. Growing very clean notes of saffron and a touch of vanilla. Medium body. The aftertaste is less tart with saffron and some sweet cookies. The saffron-finish goes on for hours.

The carbonation is medium to light, the fresh small bubbles are short-lived. The liquid is smooth and a bit harsh.

Saffron is a tricky spice, it tends to take over everything and just become too much. But this one is highly balanced with a pleasant tartness. Well done!
