750ml bottle from IPB. Clear pale amber with small head. Head retention is rather short. Nose acidic and tart with horsey notes. Fairly mineral brett profile. Delightful leathery brett profile. Citrusy tartness with a very light pinch salt. Taste moderate tartness and acidity. Malty body on the finish. Some brett on taste as well but not as much as on the nose. Fairly lively carbonation. Light woody astringency on the finish. Very nice nose, lots of complexity and character. Taste is not as expressive as the nose, almost as complex but a bit lighter overall. Great beer overall.

Bottle, 75cl. A big, creamy, white head forms over an off-white body, leaving lacings. Fruity and piney aroma with a light milky funkyness. The flavor has a little yeast note and a pleasant bitterness, not much maltyness, and the same fruity and piney things found in the aroma. Medium to full body, nicely carbonated, and finishing mostly bitter. A pleasant and tasteful saison. 131004

Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Strågul uklar. Stoor skumtopp. Gusher. Høyt karbonert. Smaker sitrus, gjær,korn, gress. Litt for mye sitrus etter min smak. Ganske frisk

Bottle shared by czar, thanks man! Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves OK lacing. Aroma is of restrained fruits and spices, quite subtle but good. Taste is slightly vegetal, gently tart and dry. No rough edges, acidity is of the good kind. Body is light, carbonation medium-high. This is really drinkable. A nice sour saison even if people noted that there were some bottle variations and that our bottle "wasn’t as good".

pours hazy golden with a very nice reviving white head, some retention and nice lacing. white grapes, apple juice - reminiscent of stille nacht, some slightly off buttery caramel, doughy and crisp lightly toasted malts - yes, at the same, spices, mild woody notes, red wine character - seems pretty shy compared to other reviews i’ve read. lactic and citric - good balance and perfect level and complexity of acidity. lively and soft carbonation, light body - never watery, tart, sharp grassy-citric finish. superb mouthfeel. excellent features yet it seems somehow a little something went wrong in my bottle..

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some lemons, wheat and pepper notes. The flavor is a mix of wheat with some nice tart lemon notes. I also get a bit of Belgian yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
