Huge offwhite head. Hazy yellow body with carbonation. Funky mealy lemony aroma with herbal notes. Dry-acidic funky herbal lemony taste with vinegary mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry-acidic vinegary funky earthy aftertaste with lemony wooden barnyard notes. Interesting and drinkable, if a bit challenging. (0.75l bottle, wine monopoly, web order.)

Bottle, pours sparkling golden orange, clear, with fine creamy head which comes to rest on the surface, great retention and build-up of lacing. Aroma is funky tropical notes, brett, citrus, light toasted malts and hay, barnyard and wood. Taste is green apple, pear, apricot, tropical notes, mild tartness, yogurt and brett, white wine finish, funky. Medium body, lively carbonation, refreshing. Really reminds me of similar offerings from Hill Farmstead/Grassroots Delicious.

jeremyh70 (873) - Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2013
A hazy peach color with a persistent cap of white head and good lacing. Light fruit like apples in aroma with some grain and hay and a hint of tartness. Taste has apple, pears and grape skin with a mild tartness as well as some mustiness and woody flavors. Mouthfeel is crisp with a light medium body and effervescent carbonation. Finishes dry. Very nice saison that is easy to drink with nice flavors.

Tmoney99 (11822) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Tap. Poured clear golden color with an average creamy white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy blalanced sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2013
Cloudy very pale golden hue topped by a healthy, fully lasting white sheet. Intriguing aroma, rather intense with a straight to the point funky side reminiscent of wild flowers, eucalyptus, alguae, dusty cobwebs, moldy lychen on forest trees and rocks. Certainly has a green, almost vegetal component to it, but this remains perhaps underneath the highly lemony lactic character that resembles a lambic. Very dry mouth presence, an impression further amplified by vigorous carbonation and a very mineral, almost salty mouth presence. Tight, lean palate with plenty of refreshing acidity. Not very clean, nor elegant, but thirst-quenching to the max and well-focused, easy-drinking. What a nice surprise. Then again, I’d never noticed that this beer was rated was high in the first place. I feel privileged to have tried it.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a transparent golden ora ge with foamy white head. Smells solid; tart, spicy, yeasty, earthy, and a little funky. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. Good beer.
