mkel07 (4534) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2012
330ml bottle. There’s a great big fluffy white cloud of foam that is well packed and consistent. The body is a murky haze and the beer is a sunshine yellow colour. The aroma is mostly citrus hops with some fresh flower scents also coming through, a fair bit of zestiness in the nose. There is also a big hop punch in the flavour and you get a slight alcohol warmth in the back of your throat. Refreshing and easy to drink, maybe too easy given the alcohol content. Perfect beer for a warm summers day. It is good to see Australian brewers collaborating with others world class brewers.

mansquito (4478) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($5.50): pours lightly hazy golden with a big white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, yeast, some basement funk it seems, and maybe some perfume. Taste is light and refreshing. Nice hoppy tanginess. Dry finish. Dry finish and lightly hoppy aftertaste lingers for a bit. Hoppy yet delicate. I like it.

0.33l bottle @ Crowbar. I so love this aroma.. In the glass this is a light cloudy kinda golden light orange one and it has a nice big super lacing white head with great retention. As I mentioned, I just dig this aroma some much. It’s just so brett infused, hoppy, fresh and amazingly inviting. Grassy hoppy with sweet saison-peachy fruits and it just smells really good. Tastes great as well with a bretty both semi dry and semi sweet flavor. It feels light oily in the mouth and it has an just above average carbonation level. I get a dry hay like flavor here, lots of funky almost bretty saison yeast. Lots of grapefruit bitterness and citrus. There is also a kinda stingy almost peppery burn on the tongue here. It ends with a light dry mouthfeel and leaves your wanting more. Still, I definitely prefer the other version, but glad I got a chance to try this. 17.10.2013

Eructoblaster (3477) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle - 500ml.Beautiful, cloudy blond body with a thick, lasting white foamy head. Fresh, sharp hoppy aroma with coriander and citrusy hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries coriander, citrusy, yeasty, and some grainy notes. Ends with a long, dry, robust bitter/herbal finish. Wow!

abemorsten (3378) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Small bottle at Cardinal. Hazy golden body with an inch thick frothy white head. Grassy, flowery gooseberry spicy saison yeast notes on the nose. Meaty, gooseberry hop juice in the mouth; still, more complex due to the yeast. Medium bodied. Nice spicy yeast notes opening up as it heats. Pretty good stuff. Quite soft in the mouth.
