Minderbinder (2603) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle. Thx Czar. Pours golden with huge soapy white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of funk, flowers, rotten fruits. Taste is of funk, flowers, good acidity, weird slightly off fruits (probably from saison yeast), some bitterness, underlying lambic caracter. Palate: High carbonation. Light body. Overall: Quite good. Interesting faint lambic features.

Bottle shared by czar, many thanks bro! It pours a hazy golden with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of fruits and lightly funky with a little rotten fruit that I’m not entirely convinced about. Taste is lightly sweet, moderately tart and fruity. Some odd burnt/caramelized sugar in the finish. Body is medium, carbonation high and prickly. Overall a good one but not a standout. Glad to have sampled it, though!

czar (5723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
pours hazy lightly golden with a towering bubbly white head, nice lacing. lots of berry fruitiness - saeiszon fruity and peppery notes; crackery maltiness, white grapes, astringent wood, oranges and citrus. almost foamy carbonation, light body; gently tart and woodsy-spicy finish. yogurt/sour cream with added orange blossom. some lambic wooden character. unique. but not oustanding.

NikkTwist (2012) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle at Eulogy. Hazy golden orange pour with a large frothy white head. Lots of carbonation. Lasting thick layer of foam - which keeps things creamy. Sour dark amber fruit with a good amount of drying wood tannins. Apricot fuzz. Cherry pineapple. Clementines. Bruised peaches. Medium-light caramels. Honey wheat bread. Duck sauce. Some of the flavors feel more artificial as it warms, but it balance very good.

EdKing (2140) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
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.

jbruner (2940) - 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.
