Ölbeat 254: Paljas Session Saison

Brewery: Henricus (brewed at Brouwerij Anders!)
Country: Belgium
Style: Saison
Abv: 4,6 %
What about the beer?
Colour is hazy lemon yellow with a huge overwhelming white head. Aroma has yeast, stingy citrus sourness and some apple. Taste starts with violently spiking citrus tartness boosted with high carbonation. Sour-tart lemon juice takes over with yeasty bitterness. Towards the end some sweeter and rounder citrus flavours get mixed to the sour-bitter basic taste. Aftertaste has citrus sourness and malty dryness.

Surprisingly tasty Saison. Opening the cork made the loudest "tschiff" sound in a while. Strong fruity sour taste for this abv. Great brew with a couple of warm meat sandwiches. Don't believe I found this reasonably priced in a local supermarket.


Don't usually like the "session" definition in a beer's label but this time it gave me the idea on the song. Relaxing slow session music, without the risk of getting stuck in the elevator, here you go.

From the 1993 soundtrack of Coneheads (originally left out of Blood Sugar Sex Magik, 1991), the song was written by Anthony Kiedis, John Frusciante, Flea and Chad Smith.
