Bottle @ home. 3/30/15 release. Slightly hazy, golden orange appearance with a thin white head. I still get a chalky / corny / herbal note in the nose. Maybe a little more funky. Lemon and a hint of spice. Light body. Tons of lemon and citrus soda. Fairly herbal. Lightly tart. Lots of lemon in the after taste. This certainly seems to be better than I remember the earlier releases being but maybe my preferences have evolved as well. (4.0)
(August 2014 rating) Bottle @ Doodler. Light milky yellow appearance with a white head. The aroma has some funk with a lot of corn, grass, and hay. Tart and lemony flavor. Vanilla, soft oak, pineapple. Twangy finish. Pretty grassy and juicy. Nice. (3.7)

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml corked and caged, bottled 3/30/15 and poured into a tulip. Purchased at Mile High Wine & Spirits. Cloudy orange appearance with a small, lingering white head and patchy lacing. Aroma of funky yeast, sour notes, oak, citrus, tropical fruits, earth, barnyard and wheat. Similar flavor, juicy and mildly sour with light funk, white wine and wood. Medium body with a light puckering feel and a refreshing tart finish, a touch dry. Overall, an incredible sour saison, very quaffable and quenching. Pairing: Grateful Dead - Casey Jones, from 7/21/72

Bottle shared by Armin, thanks! Pours a cloudy light yellow with a slight peach hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has notes of light peach, funk with a light grain backbone and a hint of light fruit. Flavor has a nice tartness with peach, light fruit, light grain and an underlying yogurt note.
