mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle at PIB, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out some peppery funk upfront and Belgian yeast further back. Flavour reveals a very soft palate, with notes of Belgian yeast, clove, and banana. Not the most refined saison-ish beer by a long shot, but quite decent nonetheless. Good beer.

arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, very hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, pepper, some bready notes into a bit of funk, yeast, hints of lemon, orange peel. Taste is a mix of bread, grass, orange, pear, white grape into some lemon, funky oak, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Nice.

thornecb (4545) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours gold into a snifter. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving scant trailing sheets. Caramel, yeast, pepper and citrus aromas. Sweet caramel and marshmallow upfront turning to pepper and bitter earth in the lasting finish.

Ontape (364) - Valley Village, California, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Pretty tasty. Pours a hazy gold with a touch of head. Rich aroma of Belgian yeast, nutty malt, peach, pepper. Taste follows suit. Interestingly, it starts dry and finishes sweet. A bit thin and syrupy but overall quite nice.

sirwisa (25) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Subtle funk aroma, slight pepper undertones. Slightly low on carbonation makes for a syrupy mouth feel. That in turn leads to a overly sweet beer

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a hazy bright yellow with a bit head. Mild pepper and lots of belgian yeast fruitiness. Slightest of sourness in the background.

daknole (9466) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Lightly hazed gold, white head. Really a good drinking beer. It starts with some hop bitterness, yeast, pepper and light bready malts. Finishes with a clean bitterness.

wchesser (1245) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Figured this has had enough time in the bottle for the brett to sort itself out. Slightly cloudy straw gold with persistent ring. Nose of light lemon and mild brett funk and some yeast spice. Taste follows, with dry pepper presenting and a rustic quality to it.
