(Bottle, 0.75 l - batch #1 August 2011, 20120310, courtesy of rosenbergh) The beer poured golden and hazy. The foaming was quite strong and it produced a white head. Aroma had spices, sourness, grapefruit and wood. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, citricness, sourness, fruitiness, grapefruit, malts, wood and bitterness. Aftertaste was sour, hoppy and bitter. Very nice hoppy saison.

SpringsLicker (3382) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Pours a hazy orange with a 3-dimensional white head. Complex aroma. Flowery spice, sour fruit, new leather. The flavor is slightly sweet at first lots of herbal notes. Almost a lavender dryness in the finish. The complexity matches the aroma. Smooth yet lively.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Semi unclear golden orange with large white head. Smell is spice, some cheesy funk, light fruits and some bright hops. Taste is fruity, funky brett, spicy hops, honey sweetness, spice. Overall very nice and I think the barrel aging adds the nice fruity complexity.

Ungstrup (33469) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of spices, fruits, brettanomyces, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruits, and berries, as well as hints of brettanomyces leading to a dry finish. A bit boring. Thanks pinball for sharing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a cloudy amber with a frothy off-white head leaving quite some lacework. Fruity nose with quite some Brett. Medium body, sweet fruitiness, there’s a dry tart berry note probably from the Pinot Noir barrel combined with a pleasant funky Brettyness. Ends dry with some hops showing. Calling this a Saison is probably stretching the borders of the style, but it sure is a nice beer. 290212
