pours hazy orange with thick white head. Aroma is hay, lemon, sweat bread, yeast, funk. Taste is lemon, yeast, bready malt - exactly as billed a saison mixed with geuze. Enjoyed it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
giallo aranciato, velata
giallognola, media presenza, fine e buona persistenza
cereali, fruttato con note agrumate e frutta acerba, un tocco acetico, sensazione leggermente vinosa
si ripropongono i multi cereali utilizzati con quel tocco belga nei leiviti ed una certa astringenza fruttata che risulta perÚ meno impattante di quello che al naso si poteva pensare. Si nota mela, uva, frutta acerba con un tocco acidulo smussato da un tenue venatura dolce.
corpo medio basso, carbonazione vivace ma ben dosata , alcohol poco evidente
non essendo un amante delle birre acide ed in particolar modo delle lambic, ho comunque apprezzato e goduto appieno di questa birra che riesce a fornire in maniera dosata ( per i comuni mortali) i caratteri distintivi dello stile, unendo profumi e sapori tipici di una wheat. session beer ottima come aperitivo anche per palati meno esperti; fine , sofisticata ma molto beverina. ottima.

Pours orange-soapy, white head. Funky Brett aroma, basement, spice, and some fruits and spice. Flavor is sweet malt flavors but then leads a nice pleasant tartness and apple and pear like fruit flavors. Sparkling carbonation and dry. Very enjoyable farmhouse ale.

Bought from the Brass Tap, bottle to go, only $9 what a steal. Poured a dark golden color with aromas of light hay, apples, and some light spice. Flavors are the same, light on the palate, interesting beer overall, i really liked the light sourness, with some nice spice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home poured into my Hill Farmstead tulip. Appearance is hazy golden with a huge, long-lasting white head. Funky, dusty, citric acid, wheat, horse blanket, straw, green apple, and biscuit in the aroma. Taste is yeast, spice, lemon zest, citrusy hops, grass, white grapes, straw, and light acid with a medium tart finish. Mouthfeel is crisp with fizzy carbonation, ending very dry. Really nice beer; spicy, tart, bready, and fruity, almost gueuze-like. Well-done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 11C. Slight gusher. Hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of apples, damp hay, stone and tropical fruit, lemon, pepper. Creamy, slightly slippery mouthfeel. Sweet, fruity and floral with grapes and pineapple, mellow funk, gently tart. Doesnít finish dry which is a slight shame. But refreshing and engaging.

I didnít know much about this beer going in though I have had some Borgo brews before and this really impressed me. Subtle Belgian notes with spice flavors everywhere. Very floral and easy to sip. Would pair great with salads.

Bottle pours a hazy dark orange with a large off-white head. Aroma has a lot of yeast, a slight funk, cherry, and spices. Taste is sweet Belgian spices into some brett funk, mellow tart fruits, and finishing with dry sour yogurt. Delicious, a great combo!

9/2/12. 375mL bottle from Grassroots. Really murky orange pour with a huge khaki head that sticks and laces plenty. Nicely funky aroma with barnyard, plenty of lemon tartness, and a touch of spiciness, though it seems a bit muted. Nicely tart entry, almost puckering, with a touch if funk, oak, and barely a touch of spiciness. It seems almost a touch watered down and could be a little more complex, but otherwise itís darn tasty.
