bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2013
(330ml flip-top bottle) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of lemon, horse blanket, wood, vinous, some leather, and light notes of cherry and caramel in the background. Flavor of lemon, brett, lacto, wood, grass, brett, and yeast. A nicely funky saison.

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Hazy straw color, stubborn white lace dirties my glass. Lemon peel, farmhouse spices, white wine barrels, citric aroma. Smooth blend of the above meets my taste buds, becoming greater than the sum of its parts. A touch too much carb but that's not a big deal.Tasty stuff.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle, shared with my wife. Very hazy straw gold body with an enormous white head that compacts into a thick meringue. Aroma is lemony and lightly funky. The palate delivers more funk and lactic acidity than the nose suggests, with unripened pear and lemon. I’m not sure whether the funk is intentional, or whether I got a bottle with a little extra microbial aging, but either way it made for an exceptionally quenching and complex saison.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
33cl swing top bottle served in my Treebs branded tulip. A: Pours a hay orange color with a thick 2 fingers of pure white head forming on the pour. The retention on the head is great as it is heavy and thick Sticky and clumpy lace is left down the entire glass. S: Oaky with a nice wine profile. Light, fruity and grapey with a sweet malt profile. The flavors blend nicely together with a body of yeast that provides a funk and dryness. T: The saison style comes out more in the taste. Dry yeast with some stone fruit and a little cracker sweetness from the malts. The oak barrel comes back on the back end with some wine, red grape and a little fruity sweetness. Mild tartness. M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. A creamy mouthfeel with a sweet finish. O: Pretty nice overall. Balanced with a nice wine oak barrel presence. Would have liked a little more tartness. Serving type: bottle 09-08-2013

Hell of a saison here. Nice funky lactic saison with tons of musty basement and light fruitiness. Overall a great saison with lots of character and drinkability.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2013
On tap at Stumbling Monk, pours an opaque cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Nose brings out subtle tart notes, with celery, Belgian yeast, and dry apple - the vegetal notes are most prominent, in a good way. Flavour brings out dry vegetal notes as well, with celery, Belgian yeast, some champagne-like notes, and apple cores. Finishes on dry, celery notes. Solid, dry, thirst-quenching saison.

Arve_Christian (3261) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2013
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Stovner, Oslo ( on order). Golden hazy color, good foam. Fruty and floral aromas, also citrus- medium/high aroma intensity; also good yeast influence. Medium body & complexity. Well balanced. Very enjoyable

Scopey (7376) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Bruce at the Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting. It pours cloudy amber with a thick white head. The nose is soft, doughy, spice,stone fruit, apricot and fruit yoghurt. The taste is crisp, tart orange, tangerine, apricot, sherbet, soap, lactic notes, mild acidity, white grape skin, wood and some mustiness with a dry, tart finish. Medium+ body, moderate-high carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Smooth, tart and damn tasty. Really like the tart edge to it. Delicious!

Shag (2637) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Why make me do math? Anyway this poured a dark golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus namely lemons, spices, and a bit of vinegar. The flavor is full of citrus and spices with a hint of the funk going on. The finish is rather sour. Overall more funky than a regular saison, kinda like me.
