Thanks John for bringing the bottle: Hazy deep amber hue with a small frothy head and okay lacing. The aroma has notes of sour apple, brett-like funk, herbs and flowers, pepper, rye and dusty yeast esters. The taste is moderately sour and woody at first followed by a nice level of bitterness. The finish has a herbal and earthy quality. The mouth feel is dry and smooth and quite enjoyable. I liked it, a nice surprise for sure.

Aroma is funky with some barnyard, leather, sweaty locker room, salt and bready caramel with mulling spices and oranges. Cloudy pinkish amber with a thin, white head and some floaties. Flavor starts with sour orange, sweet and grainy caramel and some sweat. Overall the flavor is a bit thin compared to the aroma. Very light body, almost watery texture and nice carbonation. Thanks to JPDIPSO for sharing.

Kinz (3257) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2006
One big bottle, split with the spouse. Medium orangish color, nice head. Aroma a nice mix of floral, yeast, and dark fruits, quite complex. The flavor is highly intricate, much like the nose, with a definite thick floral bouquet thing going on, with a honey note coming through as well. Just a touch reminiscent of the Avery Saison. A bit of spice on the end cleans things up at the finish. I rather liked it, although it wasn’t an easy drinker by any means due to the complexity I was finding.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2007
1L bottle @ Ken’s Walloping Wednesday - Softly hazed gold, creamy off white head. Nose held funked floral and sour lemon-like tones. Hints of yeasty black pepper emerge on further warming. Flavor was very nice with a well balanced mix of bretty funk and peppery lemon florals. Nicely complex for the light ABV. Light bodied, medium carbonation, peppery, sour fruity finish. Unique and tasty for sure. Thanks argo0.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2007
From a pricy big bottle purchase at Belmont Station--Poured a medium copper amber body with a mild white head that dissipated but left da ecent to low head. Honey nose with fruity watery mild complex lovin texture. I drank a few glasses and loved it! Go for it if you can afford it.

750 ml bottle opened with quite a pop. Aromas of citrus, unknown spice and yeast? Hazy orange tinged gold color with a minimal white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. A slightly brett-like sour for flavor with light spice, some yeast, and a lot of lighter fruits. I think I detect a little rose oil on the palate. Only a slight floral hoppiness. Reasonably dry. There’s a lot going on here. It’s very fresh and refreshing. A session ale for sure.

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 23, 2009
750 ml bottle, 4% ABV. A hazy orange/pale amber beer with a large, rocky and mostly lasting white head. Powerful and nice aroma, vert flowery, some malt and notes of honey and spices (pepper). Really fresh nose. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Very original and peculiar and surely well executed and hard to describe. Also flavourful for such a light beer. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness

Hazy gold amber beer, very frothy white head. The head is full of flavour. A sour fruitiness that I think comes from the elderberry. The head is also a little spicy and there are subtle floral flavours. The beer itself is not so intense but quite sharp and sour with plenty of fruit and spice. The ending is sharp and crispy dry. There is a brief floral sweet note just before the end. Extraodinarily flavoursome for a 3.8% beer and something unique. Great stuff!

beastiefan2k (2368) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2007
1 liter bottle brought to Jimmack Invitational’07. Bottle is now a year old. Pours a murky dark golden with a small head. Aroma is very original, very spiced ala raw meat rub. Spiky on the nose with lots of green herbs. Taste is a bit more died done, a very herbal, organic, green saison. Lots of flavors, light bodied and amply carbonated. Short organic-earthy aftertaste. Very original, would definitely drink again.

Italian Tasting at FOF, Gyngen, Aarhus, DK Bottled, 291008. Orange with white head. Aroma of lots of flora and some berries. Flavor of frutti bosco, blackcurrant and a tone of sourness. Very refreshing
