Pailhead (6032) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate musty lemon peel, citrus, hay, funk, light oak, and maybe a touch of white wine. It pours a cloudy dull orange with a three finger white head that eventually fades to a thick film. There is a decent amount of sediment floating around. The flavor starts with a quick dose of moderate citrus with orange and lemon peel. The finish has light-moderate sour lemon, funk, faint white wine, oak, and a hint of florals. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

willisread (1304) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 25, 2015
Draft at Ushitora. Hazy deep gold with a soapy head. Aromas of lemon, yogurt, wild strawberry and pepper. Very floral. Quite tart on the palate with some nice fruit notes. Rich and full mouthfeel with a lacto yogurty quality that gives it a nice hint of creaminess. Taste is more of the same with the lemon and spice working well together alongside the lacto. Nice lingering funky finish. Wonderful!

_angst_ (3850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle bought @ Etre. Pours hazy burnt yellow with a big frothy and fizzy offwhite head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and funky with crackers, lemon juice, white grapes, hay, moist wood, barnyard, leather and lemon zest. Taste is sour, fruity and funky. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, tiny astringent, very tiny throat-burning acetic and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour with crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, white and green grapes, hay, dry soil, moist wood, barnyard, orange zest, lemon zest and hints of apple cider vinegar. Nicely funky and vinous. Tasty, tart and refreshing. Hints of vinegar I would love to not have in there but all in all a solid BA saison.

airrick2003 (758) - Louisiana, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Appearance: pours with a very large beige head, the beer is a slightly hazy darker gold color, takes a while for the head to settle and it's very dense Aroma: lemon, banana, bread, spice, funk Taste: egg, faint sourness, lemon, spicy Palate: soft carbonation, medium mouthfeel, minimal lemon aftertaste Overall: this saison is great, the funk comes thru as egg and really gives it a nice mouthfeel, the lemon is there with the spice and they combine nicely, alcohol is hidden well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
