750ml bottle pours a clear gold with some foamy, white head. Nose of white grape, mild spice, grass, lemon rind, unripened peach. Flavor is really solid, grass, hay, lemon, band aid, grapefruit peel, white grape, peach. Finishes dry. Superb.

Bouteille de la batch 1 produite au mois de mai de l’année 2013. Une belle bouteille partagée par SlovakSniper qui à l’heure actuelle est parti à la chasse. Cette bière de collaboration est jaune trouble avec une couche mince de mousse. Au nez la levure saison alimente le mythe de cette bière. Elle sent bonne (sic) ! Les effluves de citron, de pêche et d’abricot avec des notes qui rappellent la Berliner Weiss. La bouche est sèche à la limite tannique (astringente) avec des notes de citron d’Algérie. Cette bière est unique et fort recommandable. 8/10

KansaiBeerLvrs (2518) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013
At a tasting at KyotoLefty’s place. Similar to the Saison BFM 225 in that it comes off as a mix between a saison & a sour beer. This couldy orange beer with a filmy head gave off a funky, wet horse, spicy aroma. the taste was sour, a touch of funk, quite ascerbic & had a bit of that metallic quality I associate with Brett as well as some woodsyness. Interesting stuff.

KyotoLefty (6831) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle. Nose of grapefruit, peach, yogurt, minerals, grass. Cloudy gold, lacy. Nice warm fruity flavor, some sweetness, goes dry and bitter. A bit funky. Supremely drinkable, very nice. Great fruitiness, with grapefruit, peach and some mango.

Damico (2720) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Huge head after a thick slow gush, creamy, frothy, and decent lacing. Aroma brings smoother than usual Brett with a bit of sweet and tart blended so pleasantly in the nose. Flavor brings light tart yeast, not too sweet, subtle spice and notes of the Brett on a bigger body for the saison. Absolutely delicious.

Marheb (2485) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Un liquide qui s’ouvre vers plusieurs éléments mais reste simple et rafraîchissant à boire. Le brett et la levure donne aux agrumes et à la verdure un 2e niveau de complexité. Le vieillissement en baril de chêne se fait sentir à la finale dans une belle sécheresse. Excellent choix pour attendre en ligne à HF.

cbfobes (2596) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle shared by Ben, pours a hazy yellow with a thin head, the aroma has some dirt and barnyard funk on the nose, love that, the flavor has a funky front end with some of the brett and dryness of the yeast in the finish, again some barnyard in the finish, some of the vanilla sweetness shows as well, good stuff.

SlovakSniper (3387) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
Batch # 1. Mai 2013. Une robe jaunâtre et une mousse blanche plus ou moins imposante mais très tenace. Un nez de grains pâles suris, de brettanomyces et de citrons juteux et bien aiguisés. Des papilles attaquées par des levures sauvages, par des herbes sèches, par des fruits jaunes bien vifs et par des choses vertes bien astringentes. En bouche, un corps de moyenne densité traversé par des bulles bien actives et nettoyantes. Une finale extra sèche, citronnée, amère et parfumée par les bretts. Une bonne saison qui n’est cependant pas, à mon avis, exceptionnelle.

CanIHave4Beers (3399) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours a real nice hazy straw color with a big fluffy white head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is really something funky... lemon rind, oak, limestone basement, mild animal sweat... appealing but really heavy on the lemon and citrus rind.

The flavor is not nearly as sour as the aroma had me braced for, it’s got a nice balance of citrus fruit flavors & earthy happiness. The bitterness is not big but lends to the balance of the beer in a big way. It’s really nicely tart with a good light lemony sourness... and a nice minerality. Some light soft breadiness is buried and peeks it’s head out early in the palate.

The palate is lively, a little sharp... and never heavy in the least. Just right to carry the flavors presented here.

This is a shelf beer.

C&C Bottle. Slightly hazy medium golden pour, with a nice fluffy white head, and good lacing. Lemon zest, grass, green apple, tartness, grain, brett, and some funk. Tasty beer, I wish I had more of it.
