Funky nose with some Brett apparent, mouth feel lacks with a slightly watery finish would be a great session saison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Mar 21 2015) Pours cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma has funky cheese and wet hay, tart citrus, fruity, woody, fresh. Palate is kinda similar with lean citrus and light grains, pit fruit, hay, a little oak. Finishes dry and kinda mineral with lingering hop bitterness. Light bodied with average carb. Definitely on the funky side of flavour for a saison but still hits the style well, refreshing, really pleasant to drink. Would be perfect to drink all day in the summer if your wallet could sustain it. A bit too watery and short in the finish, maybe.

Pleasant lemony Brett character in the aroma and flavor. Taste is quite tart and I don’t really pick up too much of the barrel. Nonetheless a pretty well-done beer.

Bottle from Erzbierschof, Zurich. Pours hazy yellow, white foam. Acidic, lemony and Brett nose. Quite acidic also in the mouth, lots of lemony flavours. Dry finish. Interesting.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 ml bottle from Det gode Brygg, Sandnes. Hazy yellow golden body with a medium sized white head. A very nice funky brettanomyces aroma with hint of wood and lemon, so delicious. Flavor is super refreshing, medium funky, pleasant acidic, lemon, mild wood and light bitterness. Totally balanced body and long lasting pleasant aftertaste in the direction of the main flavors. For me it’s the perfect session beer but also a very good all-rounder. Nice thirst quencher, good with almost any kind of food and even as a night cap. Fantastic for a rather low alcoholic beer. Love it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly clouded golden with a minimal white head. Lemony citrus, quite a bit of funkiness. Some grain. Quite a lot of tang, not a ton of sweetness. Very effervescent, good amount of carbonation, lighter body. Sort of chewy. Quite a short finish. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma is sour, tart fruit; maybe a hint of apple. Flavor is tart fruit with a dry finish. A little acidity on the palate makes it a little sharp.

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton. 12.7 oz bottle. Light golden, hazy, yet sparkling with a crisp snow white head clinging to the edge of the glass. Pleasant sour aroma, some light vinegar, dried apricots. Flavor is solid with a definite sour profile.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fizzy then fading cloudy, pale straw. Lively barnyard and floral notes. Light dry palate - a little thin. Lemon up front. Mild Brett funkiness. No woodiness or hops really. Delicate and very drinkable saison.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours pale yellow with a small whitish head. First there’s some citrus fruityness and barnyard notes in aroma. Hay and sour fruits too with some additional wooden notes. Hoppy one. Lemon, notes of basement, slightly biting spicyness and grainy notes in taste. Barnyard notes are more evident later on. Really tasteful considering the abv.

Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal mars-15: En meget syrlig pøse-saison som lukter rabarbra, blomster og krydder. Lett i kroppen, lett å helle innpå. God munnfølelse selv om den var en gusher.
