malrubius (2099) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle from Brewfest. Caramel hazy with white ring and lace. Pungent stanky cheese with caramel Sugar Daddy . Fruity tart but overripe with mouthcoating sour milk and white wine. Medium body sort of flat internal carbonation. I don’t get it. I think I am not as into sours as I thought I was. I definitely prefer a brett beer with just a little funky farmhouse and a really dry hoppy finish. This just doesn’t taste good to me.

Holmen1 (3544) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2015
Fra flaske pĺ Mandag i annen, Cardinal mars-15: lett uklar gylden med kort bruseskum, og den mĺ "drikkes mens deet bruser" som det het om Nyco. Og like sur. Kommer seg etter det innledende sjokket. Garantert ĺ fjerne eventuell plaque. Heftig.

Dr_Fellini (830) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy amber color with a frothy off white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, light tartness, barnyard funk. Flavor has a subtle sour grape tartness/sweetness with some funk and spice. Light and easy to to drink. Decent saison, but Crooked Stave has much better offerings.

Stoned99 (505) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle, thanks Ben. Aroma: tropical fruits, barnyard, lemon, apples. App: hazy golden brownish, small white head. Taste and palate: medium body, aqueous, vineous, high carbonation, dry light acidity finish. Overall: I really got the meaning of the description of this beer after the first sip. Definitely a tart and vineous mouthfeel. Really pleasant. A complex beer that I really hope I can get my hands on again.

GlasgowTAD (590) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Pours an cloudy golden yellow with a white head which soon after pouring recedes to a bubbly layer. Aroma is green apples and lemon. Taste is mainly composed of acidic citrus fruits - green apple, lemon, lime which lead on to some vinous characteristics, Riesling and green grapes can be noticed.

gEUS (1473) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2015
bottle at home. Pours clear dark golden with a small steady super fine head. Light malt nose, some citrus, some pepper. All subtle. Light body, little acidic, light sweetness, medium dryness towards the end. Taste is malty, some metal. No real outspoken character, easy-going and extremely drinkeable.

cargo150 (1022) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Couleur dorée avec un col assez stable. Aromes assez complexes de fruits comme la peche et les agrumes, d?épices, de céréales, une bonne acidité du au Brett. Une petite ressemblance avec du vin blanc. Une excellente saison sure, une des meilleure!

RexTalionis (3021) - FINLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy darker golden in color with a whitish head. Funkyness, citrus, sweet cantaloupe and bit of sour fruityness in aroma. There’s also some oak, bit of grassyness and vinous notes present. Tart mouthfeel. Lemon and notes of wheat at first in taste. Wooden barrel, some flowery herbs and sour vinegar kind of notes later on. Bit of funkyness in finish. Good.

Cloudy yellow gold, light white tan head. Light citrus, some light cereal notes. Taste is very interesting, quite sour, clearly very lacto heavy, very little sweetness. Some smokiness, oakiness. Medium-long dry finish. Reasonably effervescent. Excellent.
