neepsntatties (1208) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Rick G. of Lardo. Colour...very cloudy light straw with a thick white head. Nose....massively acetic with grape pips, stone fruit skin and massive yeast. Palate...very tart and puckery with loads of acetic quality and tons of lime zest! The yeast is here too, as is plenty of generalised fruit. This is a vibrant, bright and lively ale with loads of character!

77ships (3778) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2014
750 ml. bottle sampled @ Pure Apricot Tasting. Obtained in a trade with AdamJackson. Hazy citrus, lemon appearance, little white head. Huge lacto nose, sour, lime, citrus peel, hay, yeast,… Huge lime taste, lemon peel, lots of sour lacto, almost touch vinegar, white bread, hay, faint barn, lots of peel,… Almost vinegar punch in the back. Lacto / white bread body. Very nice but where is my blood orange?? I liked quite a bit but I did expect a bit more honestly, others really liked so glad that they were happy so this might be just a personal thing / expectations.

kbudd19 (599) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle major thanks to Tom10101 for hooking me up with a bottle of this. Cloudy yellow pour with two fingers of lively white head. Aroma is mild funk, loads of citrus, and barnyard. Taste is citrusy funk, lively carbonation, bone dry finish, with mild tartness. This a very refreshing saison, very clean, crisp, not quite as funky as the aroma suggests, but an excellent example of the style. So happy to have tried this.

wedgie9 (1937) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, big thanks to Maxxdaddy for sharing!!! Pours cloudy pale yellow with a thick white head that leaves a thick collar of lace. The nose is spicy saison yeast with plenty of lime zest, spicy floral hibiscus, and white bread malt. The flavor is the same zesty lime, spicy floral hibiscus, saison yeast, and fresh orange. The body is medium with light tannin, lively carbonation and a long complex finish that runs the gamut of all flavors mentioned above.

nimbleprop (4873) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2014
750ml bottle pours a hazy gold with some slim white head. Nose has some nice, pithy citrus, white grapefruit, fair amount of perfume, some lime, mildly vegetal, some yogurt too. Flavor is limey, lemony, yogurt, some herbs, some grapefruit, some orange, tart and lactic. Full bodied, finish. Solid.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 This beer was made from the blood and tears of Jesus himself. Cloudy yellow pour. Aromas of God. Taste is godlike. Flavors of Jesus sweat and tears. Mind = Blown.
