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

Enjoyed on tap at Crooked Stave Taproom in Denver, CO while on vacation. Appearance is a juice like cloudy dark gold with a prominent white head. Aroma smells tart with notes of oak, light stinky cheese. Taste is overly sour in the best way possible with a fantastic crisp malt finish that nicely lingers for at least two seconds. I haven't had a beer like this in a while that knocks you back after first sip. At first I thought it was my least favorite of my sampler offerings but now I think it's my most favorite. Great stuff!

Bottle at home. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Malty aroma of bread and fresh grain, with funk, citrus and medicinal phenols. Sweet and tart fruity and yeasty flavour with phenols and a touch of popcorn

On tap at the Source. Surette Opaque orange gold with a funky tart aroma that wasn’t for me at first but softened as it warmed. The taste is acidic lemon, tart with funk, spice and wheat. Pretty good stuff.

kapusil (1051) - 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.

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!
