A FULLERS ESB AND 2 LA SIRENE SAISONS
FULLERS ESB CHAMPION ALE 5.9% UK
I didn’t get a big nose with this beer on opening it , it does have a rich full bodied taste, a good level of malts,
and I can see where they say orange marmalade , a slight stickiness ,while I find this very good I don’t get
much citrus and unfortunately I have never been able to identify biscuity flavours . A very small level of residual bitters
A beer I could come back to often and would call it a sessions beer though I dont think it is a beer to sit on. Brewers Notes
Rich mahogany in colour, ESB tempts with aromas of orange marmalade, balanced by soft malt toffee.
The hops impart grassy, peppery notes alongside hints of citrus fruit – while the Pale Ale and Crystal malts bring distinctive biscuity flavours.
A smooth, delicate bitterness lingers on the palate to give a supreme finish.
LA SIRENE FARMHOUSE RED 6.5% Creamy, slightly muddy coloured or cloudy a bit of a cigar taste (? )smooth, last drop looked like a strawberry or raspberry cordial drink.
This beer I think you can sit on as it appears to get a bit smoother after it has been in the glass for a while, I still get cigar . I cant individually detect the fruit and flowers.
Nice beer! Brewers Notes
La Sirène Farmhouse Red is a rustic style Red Ale brewed using age old Flemish brewing techniques. 5 different Belgian specialty malts were used to brew this recipe
along with fresh rose buds, hibiscus & dandelions to provide for a provincial farmhouse style Belgian ale experience.
La Sirène Farmhouse Red displays a bright red hue amongst a darker backdrop that pours with a delightful rocky off-white head, it’s aroma is one of strong stone fruits such as nectarines & plums dominate along with high floral notes of rose and dandelions.
This Farmhouse Red displays sweet red fruit characters initially along with sweet floral tones rounded with a generous mouthfeel and malt character as a backbone. Strong Belgian yeast characters follow and finishes with a fresh Noble hop bitterness.
LA SIRENE SUPER SAISON 8% A somewhat cloudy lemony colour spicy, heat from the alcohol pours with a fair white head.
The yeast is much more noticeable in this beer than the Red, more of the lolly banana peppery, Brewers Notes
La Sirène’s Super Saison is just that, a powerful farmhouse Saison with super flavour & strength, for those occasions when ordinary is not enough.
Super Saison has a rustic orange hue, pronounced aromas of tropical fruit and a dry spicy finish all allowing the La Sirène signature yeast profile to shine through & crown this Super Saison.
La Sirène is an artisanal brewing company based in inner city Melbourne.
