jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Great hazy orange coloured body with a copper glow, a perfect (two centimetres) tan head and a lot of lively action in the glass - due to the bottle fermentation. Aroma of great sour grapes, acidic tartness, fruit, light malt and more puckering scents - awesome. Medium-bodied; Assertive carbonation with a lot of malt/wheat up front fading to a tart grape flavour, but not overly done like a normal lambic (although I love those). Aftertaste shows some sour flavours, but mostly light oaky, drying flavours, some fruit tastes and light alcohol. Overall, a very nice combination of a saison and a lambic - almost the perfect combination of style representations. I’d definitely recommend this one, a very worthwhile beer if you like either of the styles, and one that you’ll absolutely love if you enjoy both styles of beer! I sampled this 37.5 cL split bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 14-March-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 16-May-2010.

(375ml bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a small off-white speckled head. Aroma of florals, leather, barnyard, citrus, grass, potpourri, and herbs. Flavor is very floral, herbal, earthy, some unrefined lambic qualities, and mild leafy bitterness with a dry finish.

Bottle from Smitty’s. Pours deep gold with 3-finger frothy white head. Nose is heavy floral, fruity, and earthy. Tastes tart, fruity, with pale malt and sizable hops. As it warms, more citrus, tangerine, and floral tartness emerges. Stays pretty balanced, and is very refershing.

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a near clear gold orange with a small quickly dissipating white head. Aroma has a nice tart cherry note with an undertone of earthy yeast. Flavor has much more of a saison note with yeast notes that are mainly earthy and some sweet fruits. The tart cherry note does not mix as well in the flavor.

Drake (7948) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2010
Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a very slightly hazy peach color with a large frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of bread, caramel, peach, pear, citrus and a light tartness. The taste is citrus, bread, earthy musty notes, pear, apricot, apple. Medium bodied and quite smooth. Nice beer. 2700th Rating Hell Yeah!!!!!!!

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2010
A gorgeous hazy orange color with a faint head of off-white bubbles. An incredible blend. A nicely filling saison base with plenty of brett but hints of tartness, horseblanket, and perhaps a little citrus. The beer really dried my mouth out while imparting a sour hit. The nose was very similar.

bottle shared by Bu11seye, pours hazy gold/orange with a medium white film. Light guezue aroma of grassy malts, dry cider and citrus. Sweet hay with pale malts and an alcoholic mix of rotten apples.
