Ölbeat 133: The Flying Dutchman More Dry And Sour Than Your Mother In Law Saison

Brewery: The Flying Dutchman Nomad Brewing Company
Country: Finland (brewed in Belgium)
Style: Saison
Abv: 4,7 %
What about the beer?
Colour is hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma has very tart lemon and salt water. Taste begins with salty sour lemon bite. Tart and yeasty lemon juice with some dry peel flavour takes over. Near the finish salty dryness gets through. Aftertaste has sour lemon, peel and dryness.

Very tasty mild Saison. Sour, salty and dry get mixed in balance, lemon and peel add freshness and a touch of yeast completes the experience. Despite the name, this one is a nice and easy acquaintance. Probably this brew is targeted to past, present and future daughter in-laws.


I think Ronald "The Flying Dutchman" de Waal shares my thought about that it's never the son in-laws who think their mother in-laws are dry and sour. It's always the daughter in-laws who don't get along with theirs. If you disagree, just listen Ms James crying her soul out about her and her mother in-law's relationship.

From the 1968 album Tell Mama, the song was written by George David and Lee Diamond.
