3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
reinheitsgematt hooked this up tonight at an impromptu Labor Day BBQ... Thanks Matt!! This was never on my radar.
Pours a crystal clear light golden with a sudsy white head... small drapes of lacing.
Nose is light spiciness punctuated by a good earthy funk.. the lambic is definitely present.
Flavor has a bit of fruitiness that reminds me of fermented out apricot or possibly green apple... dry grassy lawn clippings.. but the funk comes in swinging and doesn’t die back.. well done.
Light body with a good carbonation.
Matt gave this to me blind... I guessed it was a very old Saison Brett... Good guess I think. Thanks again buddy!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from GBBF 2014. Gushed when opened with a big hollow sounding pop. Light golden amber, touch of haze, lots of effervescent bubble rising up the glass. Soft bubbly large white head. Nose is funky, musty barn, horse blanket, effervescent soda, light urine, lightly sour, light vinegar, pale malt grain, fusty musty grain. Taste is light vinegar sour, light acidic sour, pale malt grain, horse blanket, tangy funky farmyard, soda water. It’s decent. My only complaint would be the body is light and a bit weak.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
