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 (9323) - 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.

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 (8999) - 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!

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.

last place in a barrel aged saison off, this one was a little too malty for me, possibly could be becuase the others were so dry. Could have offset my pallate. Richand thick, tastes Belgian
