cthomas2390 (228) - Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pale, clear straw with little head. Funky, sour apricot on the nose; a bit of barnyard as well. Definite brett note from start to finish with some lemon on the taste, but all nicely mellow. Low carbonation. Sour twang finishes it. A very nice refreshing saison.

ClarkVV (4155) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2015
375mL bottle, Batch 14 2014, drunk 6/11/15. From Rileys liquors, procured from their refrigerated section.
Clear, bright, light-amber liquid is topped by a very small white head that must be coaxed out. It recedes to a ring quickly.
Pros: The aroma is pleasant, albeit a bit simple. Moderate brett and lacto influences provide a vinous aroma as advertised. Alcohol is not noted, nor is it obnoxiously full of oak or tannin.
Cons: If even one speck of sediment gets in the beer, it immediately dulls the beer producing a hugely nutty and strangely medicinal aroma.
Flavor. Pros: The sourness is fairly elegant. Classy lactic and isovaleric/valeric acids are cleanly and simply presented, enjoyably so. Cons: Not to the extent of the Vieille Artisanal, but still noticeably thin, watery and borderline over-attenuated. Undercarbonated and loose in texture with little else to offer than the acid flavors. Slight diacetyl and growing astringent tannin with warming. Still, much, much better than the Artisinal, which in retrospect, I probably vastly overrated by giving a 3. Baffling, the scores this and that are given on this site.
After trying my girlfriend’s glass that was the top pour of the bottle, absolutely sediment free, about 25 minutes after opening, it’s VERY heavily diacetyl-ridden. As well, a strange soap flavor sits on the tongue. Yikes.

Copper hazy, orange hue, creamy white head. Smell of funk, tart berries, other fruits, barnyard, light malts. Totally quite interesting and inviting. Light sweet, spicy, moderate to medium sour, quite fruity alot of tart berry assosiations, lemon, nice malt base, complex fruity flavors, funky. Moderate bitter finish. Wonderful oak aged saison!

CanIHave4Beers (3556) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle @ Dining Room
Pours a hazy straw color with a small head and very little lacing on the glass.

The aroma is very funky with barnyard, oak, some light pear and lemon fruitiness, a bit of hay & composting grass clippings.

Flavor is tart & dry, It’s got a good bit of oak, some lemon... & a very subdued bitterness. It is decently sour & does have a good bit of tart fruit character.

It’s perfectly enjoyable sour beer, if it started life as a Saison, precious few of the characteristics that mark that style are found here aside from being very dry. This isn’t so much a criticism, as I like the beer quite a bit, just more of an observation... I guess.
