brystmar (1257) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2013
Way over-carbonated, thankfully it didn't gush. Decadent lactic aroma billows from my glass, laced with white grapes and saison yeast. Unfortunately, that's where the fun ends. Entirely plain and underwhelming on the palate: tastes like malted grain and literally nothing else. A big disappointment considering how nice the aroma is.

Smells very sour but the taste doesn't measure up. Enjoyable but probably needs to age longer ---Rated via Beer Buddy

boFNjackson (4134) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle... Poured pale, orange with a lacy, white head. Some barrel and vinous fruit mixed with oak. The brett dried it out but it really only left a mild off flavor on my palate. Sort of one dimensional.

Bottle. Pours yellow with big carbonated white head. Aroma of oak. Taste is hop and fizzy dill.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle:   Orangish straw, dirty, vigorous carbonation, sediment whirling about, head frothing over the glass, pillowy and huge.   Pale Chardonnay nose, slightly woody, floral in a candied melon sort of way.   Similar on the tongue, faint popcorn flavor as well.   A little dry, woody, with a touch of pickle on the finish.   Nose makes it seem sweeter than on the tongue.   Tart on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Perhaps a touch of Brett on the backside.   Finishes like a plain Saison with a little bit of Chardonnay character.   A little barnish after the exit, which is nice.   Decent little beer.

bhensonb (11069) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 15, 2012
333 c&c from Malt & Vine. Pours dirty dark gold with a 4 finger foamy white head. Light brett aroma with light pitted fruit. Med body or better. It’s earthy and lightly bretty with fruit. Slightly oaky. Better than many saisons.

marcus (6498) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours murky golden with a rich white head and a light fruity aroma. There is a dry slightly bitter light malt flavor with a sourish earthy finish.

after4ever (6129) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2012
375, corked and really, really tightly baled. Pours a cloudy medium amber with toffee edges and a ridiculously gigantic surging white head. Takes quite a while to pour, got such a head. Big sweet floral and grass nose, showing caramel and chamomile. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, toffee, and a minty herbal tang. Slightly tart finish. Pretty good. A little too tangy tart to really hold together as a saison, but showing great promise. Looks beautiful in the store and in the glass.

CampesinoTino (761) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Corked & Caged 375 ML Bottle. Pours a deep golden orange color with plenty of sea foam head and active carbonation trails. The nose is dominated by Brett funk, oak, green apple and white grape. The taste has a fair amount of tart fruit, Brett, Chardonnay and honey at the start with notes of pear, malt and grassy hops toward the end. The body is mildly creamy and well-carbonated with a dry, sour finish. For the most part, the Brett, Chardonnay and Saison flavors blend well together.
