Pours a cloudy pale gold with a pinkish hue and a light fluffy white head. It has a sweet slightly doughy and floral aroma. Love Buzz is a medium bodied beer with a complex taste that begins with a bitter sweetness and slowly mellows on the palate. I highly recommend trying this refreshing, very drinkable beer.

CampesinoTino (798) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Corked & Caged 750 ml Bottle. Pours a hazy burnt golden orange color with significant layer of foam and bubbles. Aroma is sharp and citrusy with a good dose of Brett, wine barrel, orange peel, rose hips and resiny hops around the edges. The taste opens up with a blend of ruby red grapefruit, lemon rind and pineapple before the sour, funky Brett flavors takes over for a bit. After that there’s some pepper, apricot, white grape and oak rounding things out. Mouthfeel is bone dry with strong carbonation and a tart, acidic finish. Overall, a unique take on the Saison style that tastes very much like the brewery’s other offerings.

bytemesis (5175) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle, batch 2. Pours lightly hazy golden amber with a large off-white creamy head that dissipates slowly and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is tangerine, red wine, Brett, wheat. other citrus notes prominent as well. Flavor is about the same, with some peppery spiciness and a bit of a lemon rind spicy bitter finish. Medium sweet, lightly tart. Nice Brett and oak notes throughout. Very nice beer.

after4ever (6925) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2012
750, corked and baled. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy white head and decent spotty lace. Big fresh nose of oranges, very direct and dimensional even when still chilly from the fridge. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Oranges, minerals, and a bit of tangy, funky hay on the mid palate. Long tangy finish.Very nice saison for sure.

RamyG4 (323) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle. Opaque golden beer with a big white head. Aroma is very fruity, tropical fruits, citrus, some spice, brett, oak. Nice and complex. Taste is sweet, mildly bitter, with just a touch of funk. Finish is heavy spice and wood, bitter with a little alcohol. Medium body, average carbonation. Good stuff.

TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Hazy golden orange, with a thin head that drops quickly leaving a thin film of very fine bubbles. Aromas bring it right back into style with huge passionfruit and citrus, finishing it off with some funky yeast notes and a nice tartness similar to that in yogurt. The complexity is awesome, starting with tropical fruits like mango and papaya and shifting into a myriad of citrus notes that are complemented by an awesome yeast profile of Brettanomyces. Finishes nice and dry. Overall, this is an awesomely fruity saison and definitely worth picking up a couple to set down and see how the brettanomyces plays out over the next couple of years.

BuckeyeSammy (572) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2012
You know.. a little disappointed with this one. Sour Brett on the back end. Artificial fruit, citric acid on the front of my palate. A little bit of herbal hops throughout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy App

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - OCT 31, 2012
beautiful orange color, nice full foamy head. Nose is like a funky peach or pineapple, light bodied with nice carbonation, yeasty Belgian flavor, followed by a slightly sour Brett character, and finishing fruit notes. This is an incredible beer.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
May 4, 2012 - with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel. 750ml corked & caged bottle c/o j&m. Very hazy/cloudy amber-orange with a large frothy/foamy beige head. Smells sour and funky with some sticky gluten grain, dry, not much alcohol - acidic tart fruit for sure. Taste follows, not quite and sour, light oak resin, a little lactic (or something like that), grapeskins too, mild spice, restrained alcohol - very floury, nicely balanced. Solid body, almost sticky with that gluten-y thing going on, decent airy carbonation, mildly acidic, quick-finishing, dry, light minerally aftertaste - not aggressive, decently complex, very nice indeed.
