blankboy (6271) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Decent lacing on the glass. Aroma’s a bit lambic-like, fruity with a touch of vinegar with floral notes. Flavour follows the aroma, fruity and tart with a touch of vinegar and floral hops. Dry finish. Average bodied. Really good stuff.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle, 05/29/2012. Pours light amber gold, frothy head with great retention and excellent lacing left over. Aroma is musty and ripe, floral; vinous notes with funky tartness, some tropical fruit floating around, spices with brett on the end. Taste begins with pale malts, barnyard yeast character, earthy hop bitterness and white pepper, opens out into ripe citrus fruitiness, subtle tartness, dry wood finish. Moderately thick palate for the style, but it serves well to carry the flavors. My favorite from Anchorage so far- complex, elegant.

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle at the May 2012 iteration of the Santa Cruz tasting series. Opaque gold with a white head. Peachy aromas, tart summer fruit, apricots, funky with a bitter finish, light peppercorns, musty/oaky, white grapes, green hops, dry brett, lots of complexity.

ekoerper (590) - Iowa, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Aroma: pepper, lemon, funky, earthy, lots of fruity esters, vinous, faint oak character. Pours a light golden/straw color, billowing white head with great retention and lacing. Flavor follows the nose well - fruits and spices abound, lots of lemon grape and orange, funky with a touch of oak, spicy hops yield medium bitterness, acidic. Medium body, medium-high carbonation.

hopscotch (9520) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle… Pours golden and mostly clear with a huge, frothy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nose is oaken, funky and acidic – lemon, red wine, and dashes of unidentified spices. Medium-bodied with Champagne-like, airy carbonation. Unfortunately, the flavor is mostly spicy and bitter with only traces of the oak, vine and funk promised by the bouquet. Finishes airy, funky, vinous, and then Sahara-dry. If only the flavor had matched the aromatics, this would have been world class stuff. Bottle courtesy of ElliesBrown!

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle. Batch #1, August 2011. Rated 21.5.2012. Hazy golden orange with fine head. Fruity, funky, hoppy, spicy. Orangey, dry, complex, slightly tart and superbly balanced and drinkable. A ridiculously tasty saison and a true masterpiece.
