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

Damico (2503) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours unclear orange honey with a sandy white head. Aroma is amazing bringing sweet tart funk from the barrels. Body is crisp with nice tart funk and wild yeast flavors from the barrels rounding out the saison yeast, so refreshing.

Hardly a saison as this is really more down the vein of a gueuze. But a fantastically interesting brew nonetheless: sour, fruity (apples, grapefruit, plums) and a woody or nutty taste.

TET (1571) - FINLAND - JUL 7, 2014
A cloudy, golden, strongly bubbling beer, a head is clouding, big and blond. The nose is fruitfull, strongly sour, citrusfruits and green apples. Very refreshning beer that temptates to taste. Taste is strongly sour, green apples, also hint of other fruits. The end is quite dry, some spices. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Strongly sour saison where the fruitness is playing the side-role. Refreshning and good.

obguthr (3663) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Tart crabapple nose with ketchup and currant overtones. Cloudy amber, thick head, good retention and adherence to the glass. Oak, crabapple, cranberry, and brett. Quite a sour saison, but hey, it’s BFM.

Aroma has grass and fruits. Also some yeasty tones. Foamy palate. Flavour is tart with citrus, some grapefruit and some yeasty tones. Also some white wine. No signs of oak here. A saison on the tart side.
