fletchfighters (1205) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2015
750 ML bottle Believe a 2012 Vintage Gusher. Lost a 1/4 of bottle in opening Hazy straw yellow color, big billowy white head. Thick soap like lacing and good retention on the head. Nose was very dry. Grain, hay, lemon, zest, oak, and touches of white wine. Taste was dry as well. Lots of hay and straw with a good amount of lemon and citrus. Once the beer opened up it got much more citrus and honey based. Dry as heck. Not funky at all. Liked it once half way through this. Confounding style

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. As "La Saison". 2014 bottle. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Lovely funky aroma with wood, some vinous character, fruitiness, floral touches and a bit of earth. Dry flavor, sourish, funky, a bit floral, fruity, with a bitterish, vinous and slightly spicy finish. Medium-bodied.

Bottle opened up at the 2014 Ottawa End of Year Gathering. Light amber with an thin white film on top. Yeast, hay, brett, light lemon and hints of lime zest, and grass. Light but high carbonation,enjoyable and easy to drink.

metalspice (225) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2015
Grumsete lyst ferskenfarget med massivt skum som varer lenge. Lukter hřy, syrlige epler og litt eddik. Smaker grřnt eple og champagne med en litt metallisk ettersmak. God kullsyre som plutselig blir borte.

bhops (432) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours hazy gold with thinning dissipating head. Aroma of white wine and urinal cakes. Sharp peppery flavor but smooth finish. Really good beer. I'll age it next time but good fresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

77ships (4858) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2014
750 ml. bottle sampled @ Vini, Birre, Ribelli 2014. Golden hazy citrus. White head. Nose is quite fun, very fruity, lots of berries, light funk. Taste is muted by yeast, thick yeast taste, lightly mineral, touch fruits, only faint funk in the back. Not bad but body & taste are too muted for me for it to excel. Body is thick yeast.

glennmastrange (2383) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle. Light to moderate straw for the malt, lemon for the malt, heavy barnyard for the yeast, with notes of apple, wood, and vinegar. Head is huge, frothy turning rocky, off-white with thick crusty lacing and is fully lasting. Color is muddy, medium yellow amber. Flavor starts heavily acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation, and finishes tart and dry. A nice refreshing Saison verging on a Sour.
