Bottle I brought home with me from a trip to Denver. Labeled batch 7/11, bottle 429/1599. Pours a light amber with a white fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of light fruity brett funk with a hint of pepper and tartness. Taste is of tart saison with some rustic malt character popping in, then moving on to a light fruitiness with some creamy oat in the finish. Light bitterness and hints of european hops. Palate is tart and quite dry but very refreshing and smooth. Overall this is a good farmhouse beer with a great tartness, mild and balanced funkyness that presents itself as ripe fruit. Delicate in its approach, bright and playful in its flavors and really pleasant to drink. Great beer!

I love this style of beer so my mark is biased. This guy is amazing with yeast - if you like saison and barrel ageing you’ll love this. ’Cideresk’ be it.

A 375ml bottle from 2014/batch 15 poured into a Duvel tulip glass. The beer poured a slightly hazy golden orange colour with a thin head that dissipates quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aromas strong of barnyard funk, slight tropical fruit pineapple, maybe mango and slight citrus tangy tangerine. Excellent tart and sour tastes. Light lemon citrus along with some even lighter tropical mango and yeasty notes to balance. Medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Overall, this was excellent, a definite must buy for me. Loved the upfront tart and sourness in the beer. Up to par with its Belgian counterparts for this style in my opinion, but probably harder to find in Hong Kong. I want more!
