laiti (8084) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 6, 2012
75 cl bottle @ olio. Batch #1, 08/2011
Aroma is sour with earthy and some floral notes. Also hints of citrus. Flavour is rather strong on bretta-style sour aromas. Also some floral and spicy notes. The wine can be observed here, but it is more close to a white than red wine. Closer to a Sour or Wild Ale than Saison. Good.

tiong (6488) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 6, 2012
750ml bottle

Pours dark orange with a large sticky and foamy white head. Tart, fruity aroma with notes of spices, malts and earthy notes. Taste is fruity with some tart notes and hints of spices and malts. Finish is slightly tart and bitter. Not your typical saison, but still quite tasty one.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2012
Straw golden in color, hazy with a thin white head. Big yeast and oak barrel aroma. Nice dry laced flavor you do get a spice and wine like flavors. This was a near perfect Saison.

PhillyCraft (5972) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle compliments of Tom at the Ruskie River Event. Poured a cloudy orange color. Aroma and taste of sour lemons and orange coriander notes. Sour grapes, and other funky lactic qualities from the pinot noir barrel. Heavily carbonated and refreshing just not into saisons at the moment.

Reynolds314 (3328) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Really fantastic saison that doesnt quite reach the level of the HF saisons. Pours an orange/gold color with fluffy mirangue type head. Aroma is citrus, light vanilla, and earthy yeast. Taste is crisp and dry with nice spicy oak notes and oranges. Theres a slight bit of cardboard and acid on the finish that drop it a tiny bit. Still great.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Pours clear and golden yellow with a thick white head. Nose is sour that only Brett can deliver. Smells pink. Spices. Ginger, cloves and coriander. Peppery. Flavor is sweet but tons of bitter and sour mix in half way through to finish with a great bitter long aftertaste. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky yet lots of fizzy pop. Good but not as much as fantome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2012
750 ml corked & caged; medium orange with a dusty suspended haze and eggy white head lingering slowly; white sugar, sharp lemon peel, some pepper and dates too; plenty of body with his one even with the dry, peppery finish; get some oak and vanilla mixed with a little stale flowers and dry brett; has an intense mix of bitter spice and sweet fruit helped by the added texture; more pepper as it warms; pretty damn yummy; kind of has this chewy apricot or peach thin going on; after a few glasses the strength becomes more obvious with a silky, textured oaky profile that is just a tad heavy to me; a complex, but a little bit too intense saison; texture and flavors a little muddied by the end

Cette bière livre tous ce que j’esperais d’elle. Une union parfaite entre les saveures poivrées du brett avec les tanins du pinot noir. Definitivement dans mon top 10
