after4ever (5928) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2011
750, corked and baled. Thanks, Melissa! Pours a hazy pale gold with a towering, sudsy, brilliant white head and tons of surging nucleation columns. A picture-perfect saison. Loose strings of eggy lace on the sides of the glass. Bright grassy, floral, lemony nose; appealing and decently complex. Could be a tiny bit crisper. Rich fizzy farmhouse body, nice presence. Grass, floral, hay, and lemon notes on the mid-palate. Mild tangy finish. Nice saison.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Sweet estery nose with notes of honey, wheat, and a little feety funk. Hazy golden orange brown pour, no head or lace. The flavor is wheaty with notes of yeasty esters, black pepper, honey, earthy notes, a touch of hay and bread. Light alcohol notes. Lingering wheaty notes, light esters, a little bitterness. Interesting beer with noticeable honey presence throughout. This beer changes throughout the experience and is nice.

douglas88 (5554) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle at the crazy tasting at Craig’s place. Pours a cloudy light orange color with a large white head. A sweet nose of spices, seems like some Brett is in there. The flavor is fruity, some dried apples and berries, woody almost in being very dry, a bit of Pils malt. Quite good. Highly carbonated.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Aaron. It pours hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is soft, earthy, brett, underlying sweetness, barnyard, sherbet, light toast and spice. The taste is sherbet, hay, toast, crisp bitterness, lemon, grapefruit, spice and subtle tartness with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Well-rounded and very drinkable stuff. Tasty.

mcberko (5357) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
On tap at Saraveza’s Farmhouse and Wild Ale Festival, pours a cloudy opaque bright orange with a small beige head. Aroma of musty earthy notes, some oranges, farmhouse notes and lightly tart light fruits. Flavour brings out tart apricots, oranges and other tropical fruits, oak barrels and some farmhouse notes. Quite complex, accentuated beautifully by the oak barrels. Finishes on dry, tart notes of apricot and oranges. Great stuff.
