IPAgutten79 (804) - Skui, - MAR 15, 2014
Gul/orange med medium skum. Aroma av sitrus, frukt og mild humle. Det er også en distinkt sur lukt, som mild eddik. Smaken er også ganske sur, med en mildt bitter ettersmak. Litt for sur for min smak. Jeg finner sitrusfrukt også. Medium konsistens

gyllenbock (6161) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Sample at SBWF 2015. Hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of citrus, some grain and grass. Similar taste. Also some light notes of yeast. Balanced and with a medium bitter finish. A solid one.

Monchito_IPA (178) - SPAIN - SEP 29, 2015
Varía mucho de lote en lote así que es difícil de describir. Es una saison muy particular. Aroma a levadura, floral y cítrico, muy seca y con una acidez muy pronunciada que le da un perfil "sour". Compleja y deliciosa.

phaleslu (7825) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Jumped at the chance to include this one because their bottles are always so expensive. Pours a lightly cloudy amber color with a small white head that settles into a tiny ring. Lots of sour fruits lead the way here - plum, nectarine, tart cherries - with brown sugar, oak, balsamic vinegar, and sour candy. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sour mouthfeel. Drinks kind of like a sour brown. Good.

DocLock (8674) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours hazy straw with frothy, off-white head. Nose is hopcitrus, some yeasty funk, acidity. Tastes hoppy, citric, spicy, with some funky yeast and fruit late.

beer-yum (933) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2015
Huge ’saison’ aroma in a hazy straw pour. Lovely fruity taste is strong to start but recedes quickly - leaving one wanting another! Different than the regular saison - but in a brilliant way.

Suttree (5638) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2015
From a snazzy flip top bottle. Orange, lightly hazy, nice white head. Smells like tart fruit, wine, some oak. Taste is lemony and cherry, white wine, some funky, rustic flavors, and some woody notes. Tasty...

teorn88 (3919) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
75cl bottle. It pours a rich golden color with a medium off white head. Aroma is medium funky and highly acidic and acetic, with some ripe fruits, esters, balsamic vinegar. Taste is quite acidic again with balsamic vinegar coming to mind. Quite fruity and estery with light bitterness. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall, nice sour with acetic profile.

Pailhead (5801) - 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.
