Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have tart citrus notes, some floral character, moderate funk, a sticky sweet character, grass with mild bitterness. Easy drinking, pleasant saison.

DrSilverworm (7995) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2013
On tap at Dutch’s. Half-hazy golden yellow color. Nice thin off-white head, with good retention, leaves good thicker splotches of lace. Looks nice. Medium to bigger body, sort of bigger for the ABV - lightly sticky. Very nice bright, lighter, sort of soft carbonation. Gets lightly dry in the finish. Good light to moderate sour taste, light spice, light bitter. Nice light spice, lemon citrus, mild funk to the aroma. Tasty sour saison. Good texture, and an enjoyable long funky aftertaste.

TheJvd (944) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, lots of barn, citrus and brett. It is actually very much like a geuze. Taste has a nice balance between sweet and sour with barn, lemon, white wine and some malts. Medium body and medium to high carbo. Very nice stuff, one of the best BFM beers I’ve had.

maekchu (2556) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 4, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 Bottle at KyotoLefty’s. Big thanks to Takahara-kun. Tart and huge barny nose, sauerkraut. Cloudy amber color, with a creamy head and great lacing. Biting tart sourness -- peaches, cucumbers, and some tobacco / light acid attack in mid / finish is smooth and the fruit sweet in the final. Medium body, with a great mouthfeel. Runs a full range of flavors -- yogurt to pine needles to fruit to .... Great stuff.

Hypo_Luxa (58) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013
Pours orange red. Smells sour and tart! Taste is yogurt creamy sweet, then bang! sour, very sour for a saison! Messy tartness, old style, oak. If you can get past the tartness there is a lot more going on here.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2746) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013
At a tasting at KyotoLefty’s place. An orange-gold pour with a pungeant aroma that is sweet with a hint of biscuit. The medium body contans sweet, sour & funky wine like notes. A very good beer that is perfect for sour lovers.
