3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definitely more of a sour ale than a saison. Funky sour aroma, a bit bready. Very nice beverage. One of the better Italian beers Iíve had.

12.7oz bottle. Unfiltered orange-tan body, steady creamy white head. Attractive slow champagne carbonation bubbles rising. Bigtime funky aroma, more earthy Saison than straight up sour. Medium bodied, very refreshing and enjoyable. Lemon-lime notes, some creamy yeast. Really enjoyable beverage.

Cloudy light golden amber, large-ish head that dissipates quick. Smelled funky as soon as the top was popped, smells fruity and yeasty funky. Tastes fruity and funky with medium hop levels into a roasted fruit caramel finish. Really liked this.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear golden color, bone white collar and decent staying power. Smells of musty lemon, hay, barnyard and funk aromas as well. In the taste, mild wheat malt, aggressive sourness from the Cantillion blend. Sour lemon, mild wheat and clove flavors, and mild bitterness. Finish is drying, sour and beckons for another sip. Overall, a really nice farmhouse ale with ample sourness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is yeasty and cheesy with a touch of vinegar and tart fruit and spice. The appearance is cloudy gold with particulates and a large head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a good example of the style but not one that I love.

Bottle from Zipps, has some big time floral earthy funk aroma. Taste is a nice blend of sourness and a bit of spice, lemon yeast coats the mouth in the finish.

December 15, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Cloudy yellow pour with nice head. Aroma was earthy funk and slight spice. Taste was consistent with aroma. Not a bad saison / lambic mix, but flavors were just not that strong.

Bottle - thanks Brandon! Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is funky saison meets sour meets a touch of skunk, but its still good. Bright citrusy taste, sharp palate. Good stuff.

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.

to call this a saison is a stretch .. . hazy dark gold .. . shampoo foam .. . light funky hay and earth, some tart yeast .. . another surprise outta that boot country .. . Iím glad I know sign language, itís pretty handy.
