Draft pour on tap at GTMW 2013 (Madison, WI). Pours a rich pale straw hue, richly hazed with some dulled elements. Frothy whitish head. Aromas are gentle yeast, hibiscus, citrus, and gentle fruit. Prtty clean, some gentle sweetness. A bit of vanilla, yogurt. Initial is dry, a gentle sweetness. Mellow tartnessn vanilla, gentle tannic presence. Some vanilla, fruit. Backend is dry, a bit fruity. Ok. A bit weird.

Light and effervescent brew, light and mild funk notes, overall not too bad.

EtTuCthulhu (899) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2013
The appearance of this beer is a foggy golden color with a large white head, and the aroma has definite currents of Brett, citrus, and spices. The taste is quite sour and mildly sweet, and the palate is combines a sour finish, soft carbonation, medium body, and a thin texture.

MrBunn (2384) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a fizzy and hazy gold. Head is pretty massive at first, but dies to a finger or so before Iím seated at the computer. Aromas are striking... Itís not every day I say "Oh, man..." out loud when trying a beer and Iím not quite sure why they tickled my fancy, but I pick up kind of a funky pineapple and lemon thing with a little grass and a hint of barn. Not a nose like every other saison, thatís for sure. First sip reveals that it is a very thin beer... it has a lot of flavor for the ABV and mouthfeel of water, but it is still pretty thin. Lots of pineapple and lemon with a hint of brett funkiness in the finish. Itís crisp and refreshing and if it were cheaper I would love this as a lawnmower beer. As is, itís darn nice for those 95 degree days on vacation in St. Louis.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from xscottypx (thanks a lot, Scott), pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out bretty upfront, with citrus fruits, some light tropical fruits and some light tartness. Flavour brings out lemony fruits, with some dusty citrus fruit skins, brett funk, a touch of banana, some peach creamsicle, and dry wheaty notes. Very highly drinkable, with a nice bretty touch and dry body. Great stuff.

Draft at The Royale. Pours yellow with thin white head. Nose of sour fruitiness. Tastes of tropical fruit, sourness. Delicious and refreshing.

GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Tap at The Bridge in St Louis. Clear golden pour. Weak foam, swaths of white lace. Nose up front is a tad sharp pickle focused, buttery white wine, buttered Hawaiian sweet roll, mild starfruit juice. Taste is refreshing, starfruit juice abounds, pineapple spritzer, bubbly carbonation on the tongue. Palate gives yellow fruit juice, pineapple, lactic acid. Hints of spicy dry wood finish. Actually quite impressive.

seymour (1320) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured a hazy straw colour with weak white foam. Enticing aromas of husky grains, black pepper, clove, noble-ish hops, composty hints of Brett. Delicious flavours of malt and tangy hops bitterness, mineral water essence, smooth acidity, slight sourness reminiscent of lemonade, complex Belgian and wild yeast characteristics. Light body, spritzy carbonation, well-balanced tart aftertaste which eventually finished bone dry. Table-strength but distinctive, extremely tasty. Excellent example of a Belgian farmhouse style. One of my favorites of the day. Iíd like a big bottle of this stuff, for sure.

Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is funk and wheaty malt. Flavor is lightly sweet, floral, honey and funk. Nice. Might be fun to age.

Really easy to drink. Subtle flavor that keeps me going for another sip. Not much oak flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
