KyotoLefty (6498) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle from Domus Birrae. Clear, shiny gold with a medium, fine head. Funky nose, horse blanket, lemon zest, yogurt, leather, rounded, bready malts. Wonderfully complex. Dry lemony flavor, some funk, orange sweetness, some bread. Great balance. The Borgo flavor is overwhelmed a bit by the Cantillon, but who can complain about that! It is softer and less dry than the lambic straight. Very fruity, well sour, spicy, low funk level. Maybe a bit too sweet. Great!

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 10, 2012
10/05/2012 Open Baladin Roma (750ml bottle). Dorata, viva, intensa, abbastanza limpida, schiuma leggera bianca, poco persistente. Al naso sentori di lieviti da saison e spezie, malto, note di lambic (stalla, cantina, muffa). In bocca č acida, decisa, prima scontrosa, quindi pian piano si lascia apprezzare il mirabile equilibrio tra la Duchessa e il Lambic di Cantillon. Corpo medio, carbonazione decisa. Ottima.

brokensail (10996) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 7, 2012
The pour is a cloudy/turbid golden straw color with a solid white head. A really funky nose to this. Great straw and grass with plenty of oak, lemon zest, and barnyard. Plenty of fruit notes to it as well, a touch of peach, lemon, and green apple. The flavor has a hint of tartness but a really enjoyable funk/farmhouse character. Quite dry with some lactic acidity on the finish. Might be a mild note of vanilla on the back end, too.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2012
From a 12.7-oz bottle shared by BDR, pours a hazy golden orange colored saison with a thick and rocky off-white head that really sticks with the beer. Aroma of tart pear, some barnyard funk, some yeast, and apricots. Taste is medium bodied with flavors of tart tropical fruits, yeast, barnyard funk, and light lemon. Finish continues the tart fruit aftertaste that slowly dissipates. Pretty decent for an $8 sour saison.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medium off-white head. Slightly tart berry aroma with yeast notes. Slightly tart berry flavor with a hint of hops and yeast. Nice moderately tart and slightly hoppy finish. Tasty

S_Side_Smitty (463) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours a golden Orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma is yeast, strong lemon, and faint barnyard. Taste is mildly tangy lemon up front moving into pilsner-like malts in the finish. A pleasant beer. Not bad.

MrBunn (2458) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light tangerine with loads of bubbly head and very active carbonation. Nose is apricot, nectarine pit fruit, lemon and funk. Flavor is amazingly sour with lots of fruity tones to keep it interesting. This is fantastic stuff!

jbeatty (1026) - New York, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle, 03/03/2012. Pours cloudy orange apricot, a gusher, but the head recedes quickly to a ring around the glass, fed by effervescence. Pleasant, light aroma, fruity funk with apricot, pear, pale malts with a touch of lemon citrus, yeast, slight farmyard. Initially tart taste, more so than indicated by the nose, led by citrus, more white fruits with a slight tropical twist, funky undertone, hint of bleu cheese. Incredibly lively in the mouth, remains light. Very enjoyable saison- the lambic qualities are in full effect, but tempered by saison yeast and malts. Great combination.

badgerben (4404) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Courtesy of BDR. Hazy color with a large head, settling into a medium size. Aroma of soured hay. Strong, very strong floral flavor. Quite lemony and sour.
