Bottle: Hazy, nearly opaque sunburst, orange body with a huge, chunky, long-lasting white head that slowly recedes down the sides of the glass. Aroma has notes of musty cellar floors, old wood, cobweb funk, tart lemon, a little hint of citrus, & some fresh mineral notes. Taste focuses a little less on the funk & includes more of a that tart lemon & stone fruit skin flavor out of the gate. Lemon flesh, orange zest, nice & pleasantly tart, leading into a woody, almost white wine like finish, ending on a small hint of damp, basement-y funk. Nice & sharp with a dry finish... Excessively drinkable saison, reminds me of a less pronounced, mini version of Anna.

Batch 10. Dark Orange pour some froth. Aroma big funky oak barrels, tang, tart, butter. Tastes some horse, some tang, mild intensity. Flat carb, slight dry Finish. Uncompelling for a strong saison. Needs to take a flavor stand: get more intense in some way.

I poured this into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy golden color with a quarter finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There was some light lacing here and there in a messy sort of way. The smell had some funky light grassiness with a light sweet lemon and then a tart lemon. The flavor was pretty much exactly the same. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The finish has an insane amount of a long bitter tart lemon. Overall, decent saison, its definitely different than what a lot of what I’ve had so far in my saison experience, but hey different can be good. I think I could do this again.

sethdude (697) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours hazy golden with a thin head that disappears completely. Aroma is burlap, funk, sharp cheese, dust, band-aid. Flavor is funk, lemon, burlap, big sour lemon, sharp cheddar, cellar/must/mold, and a grassy finish. Very nice.

ekstedt (5401) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle (375 ml) from a coworker. Shady amber, low white head. Fruity and woody aroma with some soft funk. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with a light tart acidity.

popway (42) - California, USA - AUG 13, 2014
A mild saison, slightly tart and funky, with a lasting finish, this refreshing drink is slightly carbonated, murky yellow with lasting rim and whispy head that laces the glass. I enjoyed it, Yeast and brett, salty and sour.

375 ml. bottle. 2014 batch 11. Pours a minimal off white head, over a hazy gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is light lactic acid, hints of apple, lemon, barnyard funk, hints of cereal, no hops, balance to the yeasts.....taste is lightly sour with lactic notes, sour apple, lemon, hints of barnyard funk, vinous notes, minimal malts, light hops......mouth feel, light of medium body, light astringency, no alcohol, carbonation adds creaminess to the acid. The acids dominate in both aroma and flavor. The result is a refreshing, quenching beer, that has evolved beyond a Saison into the realm of sour beers. It is quite nice, just really not a mainstream Saison. BJCP 6/3/12/4/6

IndianaRed (2382) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle brought back from my Denver trip. Kind of a hazy murky orange/amber with a small fleeting white head. Tart aroma of apricots, and peaches. More tart fruit flavors, with a little perfume floral note. More of a full on sour than a saison. Full flavors and moderate acidity. A little of that farmhouse yeast but mostly dominated by the more classic sour flavors. Very nice.

Batch 10: pours a light hazy golden with white head. Tartness, funk, barrel, and citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and very dry.
