3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours an opaque cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out the funky brett above anything, followed by wheat and a touch of citrus. Flavour brings out loads of citrus and brett upfront, though the citrus outshines as it’s extremely citric (!), followed by a touch of wheat. Very astringency citrusy notes upfront, followed by moderate funky brett notes. Highly drinkable and refreshing. Wonderful stuff.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, moderate tart lemon, and some light cheesy funk. It pours a hazy dull yellow with two finger soapy white head that has good retention. The flavor starts with moderate citrus with some tangy wheat notes. The finish light-moderate lemon, orange peel, light woody notes, and light must/funk. It’s light bodied with moderate-lively carbonation.

Mouth-puckeringly sour, as you would expect. Lacto sourness dominates, propped up by a solid wheat malt background. Citrus fruit is prominent - especially the tangerine as expected. Slightly too tart for my taste. There is a funkiness to this brew, although I would call this beer more fruit-forward than funky-forward. Mouthfeel is EXCELLENT - it’s not dry and backbone-less like some sour beers are. The wheat malt really lingers on the tongue. Just lovely.

Bottle shared by Fonefan at his place. Opaque murky pale yellow color, small to medium sized white head. Aroma is very nice and balanced, I get wheat, brett, fruitpeel, orangepeel, citrus, grapes, a bit winey. Taste is fresh, balanced, very nice. Again brett, winey, grapes, citrus, orangepeel. Fantastic beer.

Very nice. If wits always turned out like this I’d be a fan. Cloudy yellow without much head or lacing. Citrus and lots of bretta in aroma. Sour finish with some crispness. Slick mouthfeel. Nice. Thanks to Sammy.

Bottle shared with Pat before some ramen at Ippudo, in HK NYC. Pours a lovely hazed yellow body with nice vibrant white head and lacing. Aroma is super tart lemons, barnyard funk and a crisp grassy character. Nearly perfectly balanced. Mouthfeel is dry and sour with notes of tart lemons, sour wheat, salt, lime and light tart citrus fruits. Overall, an incredibly balanced sour saison that could serve as a session beer as well.

Bottle. Courtesy of James. Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of horse blanket, barnyard funk, sea air and lemon. Taste of salt water, lemon, and lactic, dry funk. Palate is dry as hell and tart. Juicy in the beginning but finishes very dry. Excellent. Sour. Gorgeous. Rustic. Gordon.

On tap at lucky pie. A nice golden color. Effervescent, keeping a slight head throughout. Minimal lacing. Smells faintly sweet and bretty. A nice clean aroma, but not getting much else. Taste is fruity and more Brett tart. Finally getting some of that orange flavor that people are talking about. Mouthfeel is fairly thin. Overall I really enjoyed the beer. Nice and clean and fruity.

Thanks Bill for the cool extra. Pours a lightly hazed pale orange with a white head. Nose is bright grains, some dry, earthy Belgian yeast, saison like hops. Strikes a nice balance. Mouth is quite bright, lots of citrus, some wheat and well integrated hops. Sock-like brett comes up on the finish, very dry. Bright in the front palate with citrus and white pepper, then dry and earthy on the finish. Wet pavement and some salt emerge. High carbonation.
