Just an outstanding beer. Tartness is light but evident. Slight Saison aroma but not as funky as Vielle. Very drinkable and now one of my favorites.

Bottle. Sour lemony aroma. Flavour is quite sour but not overly so, nice lemony saison notes. Quite enjoyable.

SlovakSniper (3165) - 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.

Zekada (136) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
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.

Bottle: Clear gold with not much head. Classic sour aroma of rubber and mild green apples. Vinegar flavor with fruit added. Very tasty.

paulysci (2) - Billings, Montana, USA - SEP 4, 2014 does not count
The appearance is a golden hue with a thin white head that vanishes instantly. Smell is modest with light fruit and tartness. Flavor is much stronger than the nose. Light fruit, lemony with a hint of peach. The lactic tartness has a punch but soft. The carbonation cleans your tongue nicely making the beer very refreshing. Much more sour than most saisons, but still quite enjoyable.

kappldav123 (4960) - GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass orange-golden, nice head. Mild sourish aroma. Starts quite malty, modest sourish, fine fruity like lemon and apricot. Malty-sourish finish, light moldy. Okay.

EdKing (1866) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 So I’m curious about why someone would call a beer brewed with wild yeast, a ’saison’. Hill Farmstead seem to do this too. Not that it really matters as long as the beer is damn fine. And in this case it is. Bottle at the Craft Beer Co. Clapham. Clear golden amber, small white head. Nose is tart, sour, sharp lemon, lemon rind and then some very clean minerally notes and clean white vinegar. Classic American sour. Very little funk. Taste is sour, tart, slight white vinegar, white apple, clean flinty minerals, very very slight horsehair blanket. Good lip puckering refreshing sour beer, with clean refined lines, but lacking the big pungent rustic flavours of Belgian lambics.

slowrunner77 (1744) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Wish lister. Cloudy orange. musty aroma. With extended oak aging critters and all, this really blurs the line between a Saison/farmhouse ale/wild ale. Heavy oak present in the aroma and especially flavor. Full flavored and bodied for 6% beer. Tart and fruity, with a dry peppery finish. I like this very much. 4.25 if I could.

Beer Bloggers Conference - San Diego - Big Belgian Siason flavor and aroma. Light barrel aging this was a super beer.
