Hansen (8387) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Orange coloured and unclear. Has a white head, lasting. Aroma is complex, brett, soft acid, light bread with some fruity notes. Flavor starts light sweet, then delicate acid, citrus. Soft, and still fresh texture.

yourilevesque (1286) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2015
Dorée et peu mousseuse, ce liquide annonce une bière au caractère agressif et imposant. Nez aux vapeurs lactiques, sûrette de pomme verte et d’une myriade de fruits rouges. J’y retrouve un curieux mélange entre sûr à l’américaine et un véritable lambic. En bouche, le liquide est boisé, citronné, acide sans toutefois être vinaigré. Belle balance entre l’acidité et les parfums complexes et doux. Beaucoup de raisin vert et de citron en bouche. Au fur et à mesure que le niveau de liquide baisse, de magnifiques dentelles se dessinent sur mon verre. Belle densité des malts qui offrent structure et sucre résiduel balançant l’acidité. Mon impression initiale se confirme: très lambic comme bière sans toutefois en être une vraie, les américains on su reproduire le style avec beaucoup de justesse!

This is a beer I’ll need to revisit (and soon) because I was a few sheets to the wind when I sampled this. I won’t be able to do this the justice it deserves because my note-taking skills were compromised. Mostly I remember that Surette tasted especially good on a sweltering day because of the sour yeast, subtle wine notes, fruity character, spices, and sweet malt. That’s the best I can do for now, but I’ll update this if we cross paths again.

Nuffield (4049) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Clear light golden color from a pour at the start of a bottle. Wow, great sour front, followed by a complexity of flavors. This is more than a saison--it is hitting the lambic spectrum. Nice. (at 2015 Summer Beer Dabbler, St. Paul, MN)

Bottle/Fest. A- Sour, tart, white wine, funky. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Sour, tart, lemons. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, tart finish. O- Not sure what exactly it’s aged in but it doesn’t get any of that unless it may have been white wine. To be honest, I couldn’t tell any difference between Crooked Staves saisons or sours.

Pours gold into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Funky oak and yeast aromas. Thin and tart with lemon and yeast upfront turning to hay before the lasting dry pith and peel finish.
