KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 750ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium honey orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that reduced quickly to a thin layer of foam that was left lying on top, thus producing some really nice sheets of lace. The aroma had kind of funky odor to it and was of a straw like malt, a citrus hop and a barnyard scented yeast with notes of orange, tangerine, ripe peaches, apricot, a touch of oak and a mild tartness. The taste was sweet and malty with a nice notes of orange, apricot and hints of citrus from the start, and had a strong yeasty sour finish with just a light hint of a woody fruit taste at the end. The flavor lasted a wonderfully long time allowing for the melding of flavors to relax on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just a tad beyond light in body with a nice dry texture and a prickly carbonation. Overall an exceptionally tasty and refreshing brew, one with a nice fruity sour flavor that most definitely left you wanting more. www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

kapusil (1021) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 25, 2016
0.375l bottle. Slightly murky golden body, white head. Aroma of lemon zest, cheese, vinegar and apple juice. Taste of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, yeast and some floral hops. Sour and funky at the same time. Has way more in common with the gueuzes than the saisons. Nice though.

Backlog Very vinous and a bit oxidized. It’s a bit to heavy vinous for my taste. Still a decent beer.

0,375l bottle at home. Vintage 2014 Batch 15. orange lightly hazy color, small white head. very "noise" carbonation. smells sour, wood, funk, light green apples, citric, bitter herbal, nice refreshing smell. light to medium body, bubbly carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes sour, citric, herbal, some funk, green apples, vinegar, some wood, oak, lightly nutty. finishes quite sour and dry with notes of green apples and herbs. good one but on the very sour side, not much saison character here.

mariuspoenari (697) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2016
35cl bottle. Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Smells like brett, unripe grapes, grapefruit, barnyard funk. Bitter and crisp, refreshing, with notes of apple cider, vinegar, unripe grapes and a very small amount of funk in the background.

This is truly a great barrel aged saison! The complex flavor of oak, funk, and citrus sweetness blend together so well. It has a great balance of tartness and sweetness that makes for a very refreshing beer.

A wonderful barrel flavor to go along with the sour and Brett characters that make this beer amazing!

Klimaet (1324) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours a light hazy orange with a medium white head. Aromas of sweet esters, oaky sweet notes, citrussy, lemon zesty, some sweet green grapes, light moldy. Taste is tarter- citrussy, lemon zest, orange peel, some stone fruits, oaky sweetness, light saison yeast, once again a sweet vinous note in the back. Reminds me of a dessert wine mixed with a tart saison. Darn nice!

pushkinwow (2472) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle picked up at HF. Pours a clear somewhat pale yellow with an off white head. Nice tartness with a moderate amount of sour, some light funk, oak, lemon zest, yeast. Moderate+ carbonation and moderate body, fades on the finish but enjoyable overall.

Japalo (1675) - DENMARK - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle @home. Haze golden. Small head. Citrus barnyard medium funky. Smooth well balanced oak to sour fruits. Bone dry and the best in my palate from the Staves yet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
