NikkTwist (1913) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle at Eulogy. Hazy golden orange pour with a large frothy white head. Lots of carbonation. Lasting thick layer of foam - which keeps things creamy. Sour dark amber fruit with a good amount of drying wood tannins. Apricot fuzz. Cherry pineapple. Clementines. Bruised peaches. Medium-light caramels. Honey wheat bread. Duck sauce. Some of the flavors feel more artificial as it warms, but it balance very good.

EdKing (2095) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle from GBBF 2014. Gushed when opened with a big hollow sounding pop. Light golden amber, touch of haze, lots of effervescent bubble rising up the glass. Soft bubbly large white head. Nose is funky, musty barn, horse blanket, effervescent soda, light urine, lightly sour, light vinegar, pale malt grain, fusty musty grain. Taste is light vinegar sour, light acidic sour, pale malt grain, horse blanket, tangy funky farmyard, soda water. It’s decent. My only complaint would be the body is light and a bit weak.

jbruner (2852) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Gushing bottle when opened. Pours a hazy golden orange with bubbly off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of funky must, wood, sweet grain, and phenolic esters. Taste is basically cantillon gueuze to me, which is in no way a bad thing, maybe a bit boozier. Highly carbonated, bubbly and effervescent, definitely more gueuze than saison to me, but freaking awesome.

olliejobbins (1283) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
bottle in Delirium cafe. Like their "Re Ale", this was massively discounted to about 4 euros due to being well past its sell by date. Opened it and lost some as it was a bit of a gusher (wahey). Unfortunately I don’t remember too much else as this was probably my 30+th beer of the day and I had just had 750ml of Re Ale. Anyway, i will try it again one day when it’s in date!

dfroms (462) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy deep yellow with small head. Aroma is super sweet tarts, peach, orange, cotton candy, lemon peel. Taste is sweet peach gummis, cotton candy, sour sugar, grains, slight bitterness. Pretty good.

Thanks Tim M. Cheesy, light Lambic sourness, funk and fizz. Light sourness, bit of a spritz. Interesting mix. Lychee like?

Leighton (13541) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle shared at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours cloudy yellow with a creamy white head. The nose holds sweat and slightly rotten lemon. Light sweet flavor with more old lemon, grain, apple, light bready malts. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish with a bit of tart citrus fruits and more sweat. OK overall.

Bottle at Craig’s, thanks Dina. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aromas of funky yeast and lemon. Taste is tart, sour, light bitter lemon. Finishes crisp, lovely.
