northropfrye (2208) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 19, 2013
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.

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2013
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.

NBird (371) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2012
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.

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2012
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.

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2012
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.

XmnwildX12 (2078) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ryanfolty (1842) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2012
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.

BVery (6208) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2012
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.

mcmd (314) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 2, 2012
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.
