TH28 (386) - - FEB 15, 2014
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

stevoj (4029) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Draft at Old Chicago Lakewood Union. Haxy orange golden pour with tight creamy head. Soft aroma hints at mild tartness, grapes, yeast and fruity sweetness. Taste follows , sweet, gentle tartness, enough of the Saison notes sneaking through to remind you of the style. Nice texture, and finish

Not as good as their Vieille, but very nice. Good flavors and balance. Tartness is just there and not over the top. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kita (1914) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle, 0.375l. Pours hazy pale amber color with thick soapy white head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of funk, brett, citrus, horse blanket, sweat, soil and wood. Taste starts sour citric and grainy, then mellows with vinous, yeasty and mild barrel notes, mouthfeel is rather dry, while finish is mild bitter. Thin to medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. A bit thinner than expected, but extremely drinkable...

caesar (6685) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2016
Bottle from Firma Bier, 2014 batch 15, large sample. Slight hazy golden to orange color, medium frothy head. Aroma of soft spices, slight peppery, bit autumn leaves, soft citrus fruit and orange peel, bit bubblegum, slight funky. Soft tartness in taste, on the citric acid side like "zure matjes", soft fruity sweetness, bit peppery and spicy. Sticky on the palate. Wonderful.

Ysok02 (1048) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2016
Très belle robe dorée, légèrement trouble, fine mousse. Nez élégant et frais qui allie des notes de cerise du nord, de bois, un coté vineux et balsamique, notes de levures. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, superbe fruit, de la tension, une bulle fine et raffraîchissante et une longue finale acidulée. Une saison délicieusement sûre, qui porte bien son nom.

Pours a bright golden yellow with fizzy head. Aromas of tropical fruits and some citrus peel. Funky orange/lemon peel flavors with a nice brett woody funk.

anstei (1234) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle from Pi-Bar. Lots of Brett and tartness. The barrel shines through beautifully and is not overpowered. Decent balanced, well carbonated. A bit juicy. Medium long finish. Very nice!

rondphoto (4103) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 11, 2016
bottle @ The Beer Trappe / Lexington KY --- Aroma of fresh grain light yeast. Cloudy medium orange amber color, off-white head with a light orange tint, sheets of lace. Taste is malt in medium carbonation that is attacked by strong souring. The sour moves clearly to a vinous character, combining the taste of wine and sour malt. Very interesting. And so much stronger than I expected. But, it does refresh, and it does awaken my appetite in a positive way. It would be too much to have more than one of these in a session.

nuplastikk (5797) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2016
375ml bottle at Eronel, Dubuque. Funky leather sour barrel tone. Tart and tangy. Kind of leaning into all out sour territory, whereas the Vielle still seemed like a traditional version. Pungent, deep fruity sour tones. Pretty fantastic US Sour. Can’t believe I’m drinking this at a show. 10 dollars. Tart apricot leathery tang. Solid, but not a Saison anymore.
