Bottle shared by dudeabide. Pours a hazy golden color with a huge off white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of fruit character, citrus, lemon, herbal notes, light funk, mildly spicy, hints of yeast. interesting.

Pours to a hazy straw colored body with a foamy starch white head. The aroma is geueze like with a light barn yard. Flavor is very geueze like like a subtle mango, likely from the saison yeasts. The palate is medium bodied and lightly sour.

DrSilverworm (6013) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2013
12.7oz bottle, shared by Nate. Totally hazy, kind of pale orange-yellow color. Good thin slightly off-white head. Little loose lace. Medium body. Good smooth lighter carbonation. Kind of creamy. Nice light tart taste, little sweet. Good oak. Light lemon-citrus. Some floral. Lindsey points out a lightly dank weedy aroma. I can see that. Good stuff

thirdeye11 (5500) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2013
(375ml bottle thanks to KTown67) cloudy bright gold-orange with lasting fine offwhite head that lasts. Nose of lambic yeast, funky, tart, bits of bleu cheese, wheat, quite spiced as well. Taste of peppercorns, orange zest that’s slightly bitter, tart, unsweetened cranberries, spices, crisp, aged hops, and more citrus flavors lingering around on the palate. A fantastically complex saison, really neat.

bytemesis (3018) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle - thanks KnobbyKnobby! Pours hazy golden butterscotch with a huge off-white head that is slowly disispating with nice, somewhat sticky, lacing. Aroma is funky, barnyard, lemon, yeast, horse blanket - very Cantillon. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet and only a light funk, lemon, floral. Dry finish. Light body, bubbly champagnelike carbonation. Quite nice and easy to drink - kind of like a starter gueuze.

crossovert (6970) - Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Tasty beer here. Like a sour for starter. Its got the umistakeable cantillon lambic oak, vanilla, sour, funk, lemon, herb flavor but also a mellow maltiness, peach, and some light herbal hops.

SrSilligoose (3223) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle at novare res. Notes of potent effervescent rustic pineapple. Lemon kissed grass. Rustic far my funk. Some pleasant dusty cellar peach skins. Dry. Big carbonation. Tasty. Very good. Bottle dated 7 2013, whatever that means.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden straw colour with only the smallest of off white heads. Lots of yeast in the aromas. Very earthy with a little vingar like acidity. Flavours are much the same. Bit disappointed in this one.

JStax (2854) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Poured from a 375 ml bottle. Pours a lighter copper with a white head of foam. Aroma has a beautifully tart and fruity nuance with some nice apple presence. Tastes like a sweet sourness with a touch of breadyness in the finish. Really nice. Thanks for the bottle lukaduke! This beer is great!
