Salmoniform (1192) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Poured from bottle to glass. Orange hue with fizzy white head that lingered. Aroma is lemon, peppercorn, straw, tangerine, herbal. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a spicy following and clean finish. Overall this is a very nice saison.

sethdude (704) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours hazy blond with small flocculation and a creamy white head that thins out quickly into rocky flotillas on the top of the beer. Aroma is spot on- wafts of soil, basement, cheese, bandaids, lemon, black pepper, funk, fresh-cut grass. Flavor is similarly perfect- initially warm and slightly bready and slightly spicy (black pepper, coriander), warming immediately into a funky and then tart bit- an nice sour note that comes and then goes, so as to not overpower the rest. Badaids, earth, burlap, a salty note towards the end. Lots of lemon stays between my tongue and teeth after the swallow. Simply perfect saison, quite possibly my new favorite. Wow.

Mostly clear gold with a thin white head. Musk and citrus, softly funky. Medium bodied, tart and musky, a bit tangy. Tasty.

TimE (3786) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 20, 2014
Hazy golden color. Soft hoppy nose, green apples, funk, salty, lemon fairly sour mouth with low carbonation. This is a real Saison. Dry and refreshing. Excellent.

BBB63 (6364) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Corked bottle (Batch 2): Overly fuzzy head, okay pour. Well it still displays some base Saison qualities with light spice, banana and orange zest, wheat husk and pils malt crispness. You also can notice the influence of the Brettanomyces creeping forward, slightly funked and acidic. Hit of dry oak tannins upon the finish. A beer in flux, may age to greatness but may just never be all that. Color me disappointed with this one.

Leighton (13198) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle shared in Hoboken - thanks to Paul. Batch one. Pours cloudy gold with a creamy white head. Great aroma, moderate brett character, some zesty lemon, leather. Light sweet flavor with juicy melon and light lemony tartness, some grassy bitterness, some straw, tangerine rind. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Fresh on the finish, more light tangy citrus, some old leather, citrus rind, grass, barnyard. Lovely beer.

Bottle. Pour is gold, light haze, white head. Excellent pillowy retention/lace. Aroma of fruity brett, citrus/floral hop, oak, grain. Taste is somewhat bitter, grainy, dusty, citrus, oak. Palate is very dry, higher carbonation, slick, bitter finish. Very good.
