330ml flip top bottle. Pours a cloudy yet sparkling golden yellow with no head, almost wine like. Aroma and Taste is mild sweet herbal spices, light malt, slightly pungent yeast with light bitterness, some alcohol essence and tartness. Palate is a medium body, smooth, with light carbonation. Finish is sweet and bitter herbal spices, sage, Belgian yeast, some fruity notes, almost like a white wine. Overall an interesting brew that grows on you as you drink, a good after dinner brew.

This is tasty. Don’t really notice the sage all that much,except way after finished drinking. Taste quite a bit like a crisp Belgian blonde. Nice.

8/4/12. 11.2oz flip top bottle from Grassroots. Barely hazy golden pour withva big fluffy khaki head that sticks and laces plenty. Slightly grainy aroma, almost like popcorn, with definite funk and tartness - herbal qualities for sure - but also pears and lemon. Doughy flavor with bread, yeast, light funk, hay, and lingering citrus. The funky herbal quality reminds me of the Saison du Buffs only better. Nice.

NikkTwist (1387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle at Eulogy. Hazy yellow amber with a pillowy white head. Lots of lace. Yeasty, cheesy aroma. Flavors are more citrus and herbal. Lemon zest. Rubbed sage. Thyme. Sour dough. Quite fizzy. Bit of orange honey sweetness. Bit of funk. Bit of sour. Dry herbal finish. Interesting. Funky but original and unique.

Deutlicher Kräutergeruch. Im Antrunk sind die Kräuter weniger intensiv als gedacht, herb-süß, rund, stimmig. Voller werdend, die Kräuternoten werden intensiver und wirken fast etwas übertriebem. OK. 11/10/12/10//10

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours hazy pale amber with a small head. Nose shows a mix of lemon, herbal notes, barnyard funk and doughy wheat. The funk is quite prominent. Flavours include more brett and acidity followed by an astringent finish. Some lemon and wheat pokes it’s head out. Carbonation is suitably high, the body feels watery though. Interesting, but a little the herbal notes and accompanying astringency are a little harsh.

A lightly soured blonde ale apparently flavoured with sage, but I didn’t really pick that up. Strangely this brewery is in Switzerland not Belgium as I first thought.

3/V/2012 - 33cl bottle @ Klaas’ place - BB: II/12 (2012-463) Thanks to Bene for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy beige beer, small off-white head, dissipates immediately. Aroma: lots of smelly cheese, smelly feet, some citrus, overripe fruits, peppery. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: rotten fruits, citrus, pretty sour, infected like, some grapefruit, band-aid. Aftertaste: little bitter, sour touch, rotten fruits, cheesy, very unpleasant and bitter ending. WTH is this...?

33cl bottle... Pours a cloudy golden light yellow with a big frothy head that laces down the glass. Aromas are bright with a sour funkiness with hints of lavender and citrus. On with the taste... Mmmm flavors start with a nice sour fruity tartness then leads into a balanced bitterness, opening the gates for a bready roundness that finishes off nicely falling into a bit of peppery herbaceous ending !
