BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle from Hopscotch and poured quickly in a Duvel snifter: Yep a gusher here as well but sort of knew about so I was ready and only lost a wee bit of beer. Cloudy golden hue with the expected initial huge head but surprisingly it faded pretty quickly even in the etched glass. Good but not great lace. The aroma has notes of orange, melon and mango, some grapefruit and pear along with grassy herbal hops. A slight note of pils and aromatic hops, very faint Saison like esters from the yeast. Ginger and just a touch of coriander. The taste is highly fruity and grainy with a moderate tannic wood finish. Herbal bitterness, flowery and some aspirin like notes. You do get some alcohol as it warms but not overpowering. Yes there is a slight sourness and ginger twang to this as well that seems quite Orval-ish. The mouth feel is lightly sprite and sharp with a light medicinal tone. Overall it is quite drinkable but must say my least favorite of the three wood treatment of the Dos Costas Oeste I have had. The aspirin and sour-y notes have a lot to do with that.

750ml bottle, shared by Ferris. Yeah, it foamed explosively when Ferris opened it. Ruined his outfit, but we were able to get decent pours still. Totally hazy orange color. Thin bubbly white head, no lace sticks. Pretty nice light spicy grapefruity woody nose. Bright and floral nose. Medium to bigger body. Kind of flat. Light soft texture to it, more dry finish. Moderate sweet, light tart finish. Not bad, overall. Kind of strange. Interesting stuff for sure, though.

Ferris (4480) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle - Absolute gusher that exploded all over me and left less than 12oz. Funky citrus and peach with a ton perfume. Cloudy orange with a bubbly head. Apricot, aspirin, light bitterness and a tartness in the finish. Mandarin on the tongue after.

Bottle big gusher that exploded all over Ferris. Cloudy yellow pour, lots of white head in the bottles. Aroma, lots of citrus, some funk, and some subtle sweetness. Taste, light citrus, some floral, sharp dry finish. Interesting beer.

ICEatALAMO (944) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle.....gusher! The aroma has a lot of citrus for sure. The taste is solid, wish 3/4 of the bottle didn't gush. Light and airy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

peteinSD (1377) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle. Gusher. Hazy golden color with a white head. Dry wood, spice, and grapefruit in the aroma. Taste is dry spice and wood with citrus. Relatively dry mouthfeel. But for the loss of most of the bottle through gushing it was a decent beer.

mR_fr0g (3365) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle at home. Huge gusher! Even after after it had been stood still and chilled for ages. Hazed orange colour with a fine lasting white head. Aroma is effervescent orange blossom, and some Brett c pineapple and nice saison yeast character. Flavour is very sweet orange marmalade, carbonation, yeast. Too sweet for a saison. Palate is fine and effervescent.

EricTeusink (698) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Gusher. Lost half the 750ml upon opening. What remained was tasty. Astringent lemony scent. Color is a barely hazy yellow with big white head. Earthy and light citrusy flavor. As above, very, very bubbly. Hot on the tongue. Bottle - The Porter Beer Bar - Atlanta, Georgia

Hazy orange color out of the bottle. The bottle was a gusher but there was no real head in the glass. Lively on the tongue. Nose of spice and orange. Flavors of wood, orange juice, red grapefruit and some lemon rind. Sweet tart beer with some funk in the background.
