phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), - FEB 19, 2012
75 cl bottle at tasting. Have been looking forward do this one for quite a while. Hazy orange pour with a large off white head. Aroma exhibits a good amount of fruity yeast esters, flowers, citrus fruits, orange, wine barrel, a herbal-like spiciness, slightly funky brettanomyces notes, the yeast profile is very nice. Taste is rather hoppy, lots of tropical fruits unfold as soon as it hits the tongue - passion fruit, cantaloupe and pineapple. Lemon zest, brettanomyces, some musty oak qualities along with spicy pinot noir notes. A beautiful beer - very quaffable, but on the heavy side of the style spectrum.

Great beer, totally unique sour, lots of grape or vinous fruit character. Strong taste of rose hips, and a strong yet subtle Brett bite at the finish combined with some oak. Triple fermentation is evident in the layered smoothness.

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, La Bodega, Anchorage. Dull amber. Not much head, but also no cork pop, which is odd for a brett beer. The aroma has abundant fruity brett, and the rosehips and peppercorns seem to come out as well. Good complex aroma. The palate is bitter, with some yeastiness. Lots of rosehips and vinous fruits. Finishes dry, touch yeasty, a little bretty and with a fairly strong woody influence as well. A complex, artistic beer. I suspect this beer will evolve quite a bit in the first year of its life, so would make for a fun study.

tmrmwel (959) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear dark golden with a finger thick off white head. Aroma is tart and fruity yeast, with sour apples and hoppy apricots. Full creamy body with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is tart yeast and sour fruit with unripe apples and brett, as well as some sweet hops with apricots and honey. Finishes off with a nice long tartness.

Had a tasting: Pours a cloudy golden color with white head. Notes of oak, spice, and barnyard on the nose; follows onto the palate. Not bad, medium-bodied.

stoutnick (529) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle at The Ginger Man, NYC. Golden. Aroma is mild fruit. Taste is a bit subdued to begin - began to wonder if bottle had lost some of its zing with age. Nice tang from Brett (Tide and its Takers) but funk doesn’t overrule everything. These guys know how to balance the Brett with the core beer style. Finishes with some sweetness and citrus; very lovely. As far as Saisons go this isn’t crazy with the carbonation. Don’t feel like I’m going to float off into the atmosphere. As it warms the fruitiness comes out even more lovelier. Not sticky, not too bubbly, nice funkiness. Overall, definitely the best Saison I’ve yet had.

Doft: lime. Smak: sur, bitter som att dricka crape frukt och skal vita. Eftersmak bitter och torr öl. Helt ok i mindre mängder.
