3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at Russian River. Pours clear orange; thin white head, poor lacing. Nose is tart winter fruit: pears, apples, etc. Further nosing reveals a quite simple sour note, with more apples, jicama, and light clean malt. Flavours are equally as simple (yet pleasing) with tart apple, berries, candy, light funk, and spice... Iím considering this a placeholder rating until some of my bottles get a year or two on them.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on 7/7/2012. This wild ale pours a light yellow from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with nice retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, tart and funky. A medium bodied wild ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, slightly tart and slightly funky. The hops are earthy. A little tart and funky tasting, but mostly dry and bretty. Still fairly young, but I think this one will funk up with some age. Just going to have to age a few bottles and find out. Interesting that all the brett action was done in the bottle. Curious to see how this one will age. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Almost perfect! Could use a little more head retention though. Wonderful flavor that include a minor tartness. World class!

750 thanks to Sparky in Summer 12 Secret Santa. Pours a big carbonation. Aroma is yeasty and slightly brett like. Very nice saison taste with lemon and zest. Brett is not strong and sour is not strong, but this is a solid saison either way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus sour fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a golden orange color with a big pillowy white head. The aroma is slightly fruity with a touch of spice as well, lemon. Medium mouthfeel. Starts with a very Belgian yeast type of flavor with fruit, banana, and spice and then moves to a ever so slight barnyard note. Slight bitterness in the end. Overall, its decent but I am looking forward to this sitting for a while to develop.
