A good bit more sour than Vieille, with a solid bit of minor orange-like sweetness and just a very solid tart saison all-around.

WillRunForBeer supplied the 375 mL bottle - many thanks! Consumed with a seafood lunch at Brown’s in Seabrook. To tasting-sized tulip, it pours a a golden chiffon yellow with which a soapy, white-ringed head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of daffodils, lemon seeds, pilsner malt, sidewalk chalk, European biscuits, earl grey tea, denim jeans, wheat grain, poppy seeds, and Blegian cultures. Undoubtedly grainy. Tastes the same with the addition of farmhouse yeast, Saltine crackers, sweat, and Chinece hibiscus stamens. Lavender, LME, and sourdough experienced by swallow. A lot going on in such a small beer.

ljthiessen (393) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle. Sour lemony aroma. Flavour is quite sour but not overly so, nice lemony saison notes. Quite enjoyable.

SlovakSniper (3198) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
2014. Batch 10. Robe orange très trouble. Anneau de mousse qui reste collé sur la paroi du verre. Arômes d’huile de sésame et d’assemblage de lambics jeunes et vieux. Assez étonnant! Saveurs de limonade boisée et de raisins blancs mangés par l’humidité et par les microbes. Corps huileux et bulles limitées. Finale fruitée, acide, boisée et poivrée. Efficace. Plus près du lambic que de la saison.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Golden and orange pretty clear, fantastic orange tart aroma, light carbonation silky head that dissipates rapidly, fantastic pear like flavor and fresh orange tartness, great dry finish absolutely wonderful. A+++++

Bottle from Beergium.com. Sour and bitter with some citrus and grapes. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Taste is sour and very nice. Fresh and bitter at the same time. Very nice feeling easy and pleasant, An okay saison but there definitely are better ones.
