Cazeau Saison 5°

From Cazeau brewery

 
« A true seasonal beer, as refreshing as it should be! Taste it in the summer, sitting at a terrace table …  » Originally, season beer was a beer brewed before the summer and intended for summer-season farmhands. It had low alcohol content and a marked bitterness that made it really refreshing.
 
The brewery wanted to offer a truly seasonal Season with production limited in time.
 
As Laurent Agache’s parents had created a cottage-type aperitif based on fresh elder tree flowers, greatly appreciated for family festivities, the brewers have tried to use that flower for producing our Season.
 
The elder flower, combined with the Sterling hop, was wonderful right from the first tests: the bitterness of the hops underlined by the flower brought a new and really nice freshness.
 
The following year, shortly after the flowering of the elder tree, the Saison Cazeau was launched on the market.

Medium thin body, okay carbonation, dry but also sticky on the palate.
THE STORY
Riebedebie, while his wife lay peacefully sleeping collected all the pennies he had been safekeeping.
And outside he bound not making a sound.
With his booty he was crowned to go party all around. In search of spicy flavour and sweet blond savour.
Many hours after the sun has set he returns to bed just before the coffee aromas spread.
But we’ve caught him for you in a bottle of beer so a night out with Riebedebie is near, oh dear!

Vrijstaat Vanmol Gronckel Blond 6.5°

From De Leite brewery.

Pours rather clear blonde, good white head. Smell is fruity, some malts, bit sweet. Taste is very remotely bitter, mild yeastyness. Fruity sidenote, not really hoppy, perhaps it’s more of a combo-thing between the hops, malts and yeasts used. Agreeable body and carbo. Refreshing in a way.

Hof Ten Dormaal Barrel Aged Project No. 8 Sauternes 12°

From Hof Ten Dormaal brewery.

A description of the delicate aroma resembles a journey through a tropical greenhouse, the floral and fruity scents, the taster induced response. Orange blossom, violets and honeysuckle go hand in hand with pear, peach, lime and mango. The complexity is complemented with notes of vanilla and clove and complemented by a notion of lavender. After this fresh bouquet comes the resounding of a pleasant and unexpected surprise. The onset of the beer is sweet and reminiscent of homemade marmalade, to be taken over by the alcohol and a refreshing spiciness.

Taste is of sweet bread crust, spiced bread, fruits, fruit bread, some bitterness, and brandy notes. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and the beer finishes between wet and dry, with a sure alcohol presence.
