Appearance is cloudy light golden with a minimal foam cap that fades quickly. Aroma is a funky mix of brett, barnyard, and apple. Taste is sweet, peppery malt with a biting tart acidity and brett character. Mouthfeel is light with low carbonation. Finishes with a refreshing, crisp, dry tartness that lingers on the tongue

Poured into a tulip. I got this a while ago, I guess it’s close to two years old at this point. 3.75 A: First pour yielded a ever so slightly hazed dark orange color. Big white fluffy head necessitated multiple pours. Retention is good and a half finger of lacing is left. 4.00 S: Very nice nose on this. The main aromas are equal parts fruit and funk. Peach, cherry, lemon with just a touch of mango. Funk is a dirty woodiness, grass and dry hay, and wildflower floral. Neither sour nor tart, but quite complex. 3.50 T: Taste isn’t as good as the nose promised. It’s a lot drier than I was expecting and without as much of the fruitiness. There’s still a decent amount of lemon though giving this a punch of tartness. Woody dry funk with some of the dirty hay notes. Not as complex as the nose. 3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Despite the large head, this has a lower level of carbonation and isn’t as spritzy as I would have hoped. Still, it’s smooth and good enough here. 3.50 D: It’s good, but not great. ★ 1,031 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 14, 2014

Bottle from God knows when. Big white head. Mild earthy and funky flavors and aromas. Lightly tart. Cheesy sort of finish.

Hansen (7803) - 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 (564) - 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.

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)
