Bottle. Holy wow this thing is lively! Incredibly gassy pour generates a mountain of foam that collapses into a chunky raft. Hay, funk, grass, pepper. Good. BURP

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne; bottled 06/21/13
Hazy golden color with small head. The spicy aroma has difficulties to develop; it’s nice but too mild, with sweet orange peel. Smooth mouthfeel; the spicy character is excellent, sharp and powerful, one of the best; strong bitterness, tickling the tongue, with a moderately fruity final.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy light straw gold with a thin foamy white head. Nose is the epitome of sour and funk, with notes of tart lemon zest, hay, barn bacteria, a suscon of thai red pepper and apple cider vinegar. The flavor has loads of wheat with a dusty background and coriander note, a touch bactilic with little or no sourness throughout, also missing any and all lemon notes from the nose as well. Big pilsen malt and wheat body with a touch of funk and hay. That’s all. Not so beastly.

Yellow, clear with nice white head. Strong fruty aroma, apricot banana. Fruit banana mild malt. Strong metalic aftertaste that grows. The metal is a bit to much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taught strainy straw cloudy body with an initialy bright white dissipating to ringed head. Soft spritzy peach, drought dry hay wallowed farmyard nose. Episodes of gingerbread and elderflower later. Rich creamy lemon, responding to the dumbed saison carbonation well with a wheaty qualified middle. Itchy, tippy toe approach to the finish, Yeasty enough. Tinselly linger. Not really that bad, but different rather than satisfying.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Poured into my snifter at home. Golden-pale in color with a haziness. One finger fluffy white head. Solid thick lacing throughout. Aroma of barnyard funk, sourdough bread, pears, apples, and pasture. The taste is complex with yeasts, fresh hops for fruits and funk, fresh alfalfa hay, pears, apples. Has a lot of carbonation for a slight dry champagne finish. Crisp and refreshing. Light body. Finishes a little funky and sour. LOVE IT!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into pint glass. One inch thick head. Simple aroma of Belgian candy sugars and bananas. Straw yellow Color with tons of sediment floating around. I'm not a snob and rarely ever do "drain pours" but I couldn't finish this beer. It might have been a bad batch or improperly stored, because my experience does not jive with other reviews at all. Harsh mouthfeel with overtly strong bitterness. Would never guess this was supposed to be a saison. Like an IPA without any malt or hop aromatics. Only hints of the Belgian yeasts in the flavor and not much else.
