Tap at the brewery. Pours slightly hazy golden amber with fizzy white head. Aroma is biscuit and cracker malts, brett, floral and grassy notes, light citrus, and faint toast. Flavor is dry malts forward, light grassy hop bitterness, oak, herbs, and light floral notes; dry throughout. Light body and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Bottle. Re-rate of a non-flat bottle. Bright hazy orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is funky and fruity. Musty with apricots and citrus. Taste follows suit. Medium sticky spritzy palate. Very good.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2014
Bouteille 37.5cl de Geers, 2013 batch #4. Orangée opaque, col blanc fin. Arôme est malté et agréablement boisé surtout au niveau du chêne. Note de suite de légères flagrances épicées. Pointes fruitées en retrait avec un bouquet offrant ce bouquet type aigre-suret. Palais porte bien le nom de la bière. Le caractère suret est dominant et accompagné par un boisé très agréable. Le tout est sec et pétillant. Qcq notes de houblons se notent avec un fruité tournant autour de l’abricot et citronné. En toute fin de bouche apparaît ce profil doux - ’cloying’ qui vient adoucir un peu le tout tout en laissant la part belle au suret. Personnellement je ne trouve pas cette bière comme une ’saison’ ni de côté rustique typique belge mais plus une bière surette bénéficiant pas mal du mûrissage en fût.

Bottle from Belmont Station, PDX via Patrick. Pours a medium orange, very clear, little to no head. Fluffy, yeasty, dry, funk. Body brief but tart, finish has a fruity sweetness. Grapes, cherries? Really nice.

nramsburg (257) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Not at all what I was expecting - a very sour saison, with some apricot, and cherry action. Nice fullness imparted from the aging in oak casks. Very very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice tartness, without palate erasing. Very drinkable. Good head. Oak in the finish.

BrettTaylor (390) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Draft at The Source. They had two batches on tap, #7 and #8. There were differences and I preferred #7 slightly, but the scores are close enough that they apply to either. batch 7 - pours an orange-gold, moderate head, lots of lacing, aroma - citrus, brett funk, taste - tart, citrus, sour apple, cinnamon, some kind of fruit on finish - maybe mulled cider, med finish batch 8 - pours same sort of color as 7, similar head and lacing, aroma - doughy, spice, taste - rounder and creamier, still tart and somewhat like sour apple cider, dough in taste, creamy mouthfeel

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle shared at the BIG Friday Mega tasting, big thanks to LK Smith for another fine beer, 03/01/14. Murky orange amber with a good sized off white head that thins to edgeing and pondwork. Nose is tangy citric fruits, orange pithdom, tangy apricot, straw, light floral ring. Taste comprises orange pith, bitter apricot, light yeast and brett strains, tangy peach, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grass laden fruit tang ni a lightly drying conclusion. Solid saison in a draw very much towards the top !
