Bottle shared by footbalm. Pours a clear yellow hue with a small white head. The aroma is mostly like a sour golden ale. The flavor is unexpectedly mellow, mostly sweet dry earthy champagne, almost no sourness. Unusual. Not my thing.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2010
on tap at maxs. transparent gold, creamy thin layer white head. Odd blend nose, light fruit sweetness with cranberry, some wheat and light grass. Flavor is stronger saison, the dry grass and pepper prevalent. The cantillon Brett and acidity contrasts with the dry saison grass, comes off like fizzy fuity pebbles in the finish. Like the attempt and certain elements, but brett too prominent.

Bottle. 12.7. Split with Vinny at Pour House. Pours a bright hazy chamomile golden with a finger width white head. Aroma of lemon, Brett, pure farmhouse fu k and sharp cheese, peaches, apricot, fresh pear, and subtle wheat and dry hops. Medium to thin bodied, with a fresh, yet funky, and slighlty tart palate. Turuly a unique, interesting, tasty beer. Great piece, had ta have it.

This is not a Saison. Its at least its a Sour Ale and you could probably argue its closer to a lambic. Really cool cap on this....it is one of those ’sterile caps’. Its weird to open a bottle and get a cork pop but you get it with these caps. Pours a nice orange body, thing white head. First smell is 100% cantillon gueuze. I’ve had a few beers where they blend some lambic and they usually fall short . This is good. Its sweeter and fruiter than a gueuze but not cloying . Its not nearly as dry and very drinkable. It kind of reminds me of the Lindemans Cuvee Renee Gueuze. I would probably rather have a Cantillon gueuze but this is an interesting beer thats a lot fuller/rounded than a balls to the wall gueuze. One of best Italian beers I’ve had.
