Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Pours with a golden body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. It’s bitter and floral with a very light horse blanket and a touch of sweetness. Light bodied, crisp and dry.

jbruner (2507) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Gushing bottle when opened. Pours a hazy golden orange with bubbly off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of funky must, wood, sweet grain, and phenolic esters. Taste is basically cantillon gueuze to me, which is in no way a bad thing, maybe a bit boozier. Highly carbonated, bubbly and effervescent, definitely more gueuze than saison to me, but freaking awesome.

olliejobbins (973) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
bottle in Delirium cafe. Like their "Re Ale", this was massively discounted to about 4 euros due to being well past its sell by date. Opened it and lost some as it was a bit of a gusher (wahey). Unfortunately I don’t remember too much else as this was probably my 30+th beer of the day and I had just had 750ml of Re Ale. Anyway, i will try it again one day when it’s in date!

dfroms (357) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy deep yellow with small head. Aroma is super sweet tarts, peach, orange, cotton candy, lemon peel. Taste is sweet peach gummis, cotton candy, sour sugar, grains, slight bitterness. Pretty good.

Thanks Tim M. Cheesy, light Lambic sourness, funk and fizz. Light sourness, bit of a spritz. Interesting mix. Lychee like?

Leighton (11898) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle shared at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours cloudy yellow with a creamy white head. The nose holds sweat and slightly rotten lemon. Light sweet flavor with more old lemon, grain, apple, light bready malts. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish with a bit of tart citrus fruits and more sweat. OK overall.

Bottle to glass. Pours a chunky orange color with a very foamy/fizzy off white head. Aroma is tart, citrus, barnyard funk. Flavor is mildly tart, citric, heavy barnyard. Funk lingers into the finish. Honestly I was expecting more from this beer, but still tasty.
