4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Murky golden bubbly color with a good head, and tart aroma. Light fizzy sour taste, but not too sour and without a bitter finish.

I like this quite a bit. The cantillon lambic is the major element with lots of dusty lemony yogurt and funk. Sharp acid with a rich spicy saison backbone with some peppery notes and good creamy mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a huge lingering white foamy head. Aroma brings out loads of yeast, farmhouse notes, and a little funk from the lambic. Flavour brings out tart dry fruits, Belgian yeast, and considerable funk that leaves a lingering dry tart finish. Extremely complex, yeasty and dry. The lambic addition is very well-done, without stealing the show. Lively carbonation, without being detracting from drinkability.

Tiny ass genie bottle, awesome saison and barnyard lambic flavors, pretty carbed, awesome stuff

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Oranges, pepper, cloves and lemon pulp ride fiery bubbles in this dry, compelling Sour Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the cloudy pale amber.
-This bottle gushed a bit... which isn’t surprising considering the high carbonation.
-This is gentler than your average Cantillon, for example.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Un liquide qui fonctionne mais qui échoue à me déculotter de sa perfection. Une saison peu atténuer avec une touche lambiquée adéquate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Orangish/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Some Lacing
S: Apricots, Funky, Hay
T: Hay, Yeast, Mild Oranges, Mild White Pepper
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Bitter
Overall, a very interesting beer as it has the nose of a Gueuze but the taste of a mildly bretted saison. Delicious if you like both those styles.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11 oct 2013, bottle. Yellow. Nose is light sour up front and earthy saison finish. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Smarties candy, faintly sour, light lambic tastes. Fun.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Stamped 042014, I’m assuming best before April of 2014.
Appearance: The body is super hazy, opaque amber coming off milky. the head is short and short lived, settling into a thin sparse coating and a creamy but bubbly coating.
Aroma: On the first smell the aroma is leathery with lots of barn presence and tart lemon with hints of cherry in upon swirling.
Taste: The beer tastes very bland, nothing to note except straw until a mild leather and tart lemon hits very mildly by the finish. What a let down.
Palate: Medium bodied, a bit lacking in carbonation though.
Overall: This is a let down. Nothing jumps at me and the blend doesn’t taste that great. I wouldn’t buy again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Belmont bottle. 33cl bottle. Cap popped off, not a gusher but it bubbles quickly. Really cool and tasty beer. A great cross-breed. Starts like a fruity saison but finishes with some lambic tartness. Neither attribute overpowers the other. Very well done.
