On tap @ What’s Brewing 15. Pours hazy golden, with a big creamy head. Aroma is vinegar and wooden barrels, with brett and farmyard notes, as well as nuts, leather and dry earthy notes. Medium body, with average carbonation. Flavour is sour, with vinegar, wooden brett, oak barrels, fruit peel and citrus peel, as well as nice bretty farmhouse notes. Lingering dry, tart finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very hazy and very dark orange color that’s almost brown with apricot colored edges and a two finger frothy, off-white head. Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a thick, lasting ring. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Some noticeable yeast sediment even with a careful pour. Still looks great though.
Earthy, funky aroma with zesty spice, crisp fruit, barnyard character, dry oak and subtle acetic vinegar. Really nice blend of saison on lambic characteristics. Lambic is a small portion of blend but is really strong in the nose. Saison notes of peppery spice, flower petal, barnyard funk and bready yeast. Citrus and light fruit notes with some apricot, orange peel and grapefruit. Nice and musty with lactic acid and funky bugs but the lambic notes don’t overpower the saison character .
Medium bodied with a tart puckering mouthfeel and and a nice balance of saison notes with a touch of lambic. Earthy funk with barnyard must, straw and hay with zesty spice, flower petal and sweet acetic acidity. Lots of coriander and pepper followed by funky farmhouse yeast, orange peel, curaçao and grapefruit before finishing with dry acetic acid and other lambic notes. Dry and funky with oak and a lingering, subtle acetic vinegar flavor that leaves me wanting more.

Big, weird bottle in a taster. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of light tartness, some funkiness, oak, some light fruit notes, and some floral notes. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A really nice beer that’s not too sour, and it has a nice complexity.

Thanks! to caesar. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT XIII. Clear orange, little white. Nose is very big on lambiek, lovely, lots of horse blanket, funk, raw lambiek, hay, light pepper. Taste is a touch muted still, light plastic touch, light touch dull, malts mixed with nice horse blanket, funky, hay, barnyard, lemon, zest. Nice sparkling carbonation. A bit almost like a muted geuze, nice – does make me wish a bit for just a regular 3F geuze. Nice beer still.

Bottle @ ZZT, small sample. Slight hazy golden to orange color, short head. Aroma of slight barnyard, horseblanket, citric acid, fruity citrus. Soft sour in taste, bit citric sweetness, some spicy saisonesque notes. Aroma has lots of lambic in it, but in taste it’s more of a blend of sweet and sour lambic with a saison or amber like belgian beer. Nice stuff.
