Torrefacto (1357) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 16, 2015
cobrizo limpio y espuma blanca ligera. Aromas de manzana oxidada, ciruela verde, uva, pimienta negra y mohoso ligero. Cuerpo medio, inicio dulce breve que pronto pasa a un sabor cítrico de brett. ligeramente picante y final seco duradero. Es una lámbica, en realidad.

Vestergaard (1533) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle thanks to Bursprak. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a medium sized, frothy white head. Aroma has lots of oak! Spicy, dry yeast, funk, acidic, slight cheesy, peppery spicy. Taste is tart, but with a big, wheaty sweetness, dry spice, lots of oak, slight cheese again, and a bit of hops near the end. Lots of barrel character. High carbonation, but a soft, smooth body.

drjay44 (3300) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2015
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours a thick, gradually collapsing fluffy, white head, with slight lacing, over a slightly hazy orange amber (SRM 9) body.....nose is light barnyard funk, slight cereal malts, hints of spice........taste is moderate barnyard, slight tart sourness, light malts, allspice, light vinous hints, mild hop/spice bitterness on the finish......mouth feel, light of medium body, mild alcohol warmth, high carbonation. The barrels are quite hidden and the spices were used with a light enough hand to produce intrigue without dominance. The Brett adds sourness and funk. The net result is a complex, refreshing beer that is thoroughly enjoyable. It is really not quite a Saison, but more of a Wild Specialty Beer (28C) under the new 2015 BJCP guidelines. BJCP 7/3/9/4/6

ajnepple (4819) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Backlog. 750 ml bottle shared, purchased at Supermarket Liquors. Orange and kind of hazy appearance with a fluffy and lacy white head. Tropical fruity, funky, floral, yeasty, light herbal aroma. The flavor adds some toasted grain, grapefruit, lemon zest and light hop resin. Moderately sweet and mildly bitter with a bit of acidity. Medium to full body with ample carbonation. Pretty nice overall.

tmoreau (3506) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a hazed, orangey gold color, with a healthy layer of soft white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was dank, bretty, light spice, and hop esters as citrus & pit fruit. The taste included dry, earthy, rind-like bitterness amped by some oaky/barrel astringency. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, a strong, nearly abrasive Saison, where alcohol was definitely a player, and seemed more as a bretty IPA. Took a liking to it, nonetheless.

HonusWagner (1978) - Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Heavy on spices and brett, with a nice bright carbonation and good fruitiness. A very, very good beer.
