MrChopin (3474) - 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.

Straordinaria unione di duchessa e cantillon, aroma limone e pompelmo, in bocca gradevolmente acidula, eccellente.

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.

OldMrCrow (1951) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle from Malt & Vine.

Gold pour, decent white head. Nice Cantillon funk in the aroma, but the flavor can’t follow through. The saison might be a very nice saison in its own right (I haven’t had it, so I can’t say one way or the other) but the combination seems off because of the gap between aroma and taste. Mild spice, gentle cereal sweetness late, tolerably dry close.
