Pours cloudy yellow with a tiny ring. Aroma was tart and citrusy. Flavor is also tart and fresh, like buying into a lime. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

caesar (5468) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle shared by Julien, medium sample. Hazy golden color, medium white head. Aroma is flowery, soft fruity, slight tart, bit funky. Soft sour in taste, slight sweet as well. Wonderfully balanced like a mix between a saison and a geuze. Sourness is mostly citric and lactic, but is very soft. Great beer and very sessionable.

75cl Bottle, Oct. 2013 Bottle. Hazy deep golden colour, white head. Lovely funky aroma, barn, hay, Brett, floral, mildly acidic, citrus, like a great cross between a Gueuze and an Orval. Flavour is of a soft sourness, citrus, lemon, bitter peel, flowers, mild sourness, lots of funk, mild hops. Light bodied. Very tasty.

jbeatty (1104) - New York, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle, 10/2013 batch, 01/23/2014. Pours clear, sparkling golden amber, frothy white head dies to a fine haze on the surface, ample lacing left behind. Aroma of hay, lime graham cracker, grapes, juicy blood orange, subtle spice with nice barnyard character. Taste is mildly tart and acidic, lightly floral, mostly lime-driven with orange supporting, dry grassy finish. Light, yet full body. Tasty.

JAXSON (533) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Light orange golden pour with a medium white head. Nose is crisp, round, lightly funky, a little bit of citrus. Not as heavily "funked" as recent Anna. Mouth is think, lightly tart, lots of apple skin, pear. Lightly acidic, still less thick and funky than recent Anna. But they’re comparable. Carbonation is really high. The little tart/bitter finish is slightly at odds. Good.

neongolden (651) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
(750ml bottle @ Mikkeller & Friends, shared with my lovely girlfriend Jan 9, 2015) Pours a hazy pale orange with a huge and extremely lacy white head that gushes slowly for a while and requires me to perform bottle fellatio to contain it while wandering around looking for seats. Aroma quite fruity and also noticeably funky. Blood orange flesh, lime peel, dried apricot, a bit grassy, white pepper, earthy barnyard hay Hill Farmstead character with lime juice acidity underneath. Juicy tart fruit up front with lots of bright lime and rich orange, nectarine too I think. A very light malt sweetness in the middle to balance the acidic quality but citrus leads. Drying into the finish, still acid core but joined by wet hay with very light funk, restrained herbal hops and a bevy of citrus zest flavours that give a bitter aftertaste. Slight minerality in the finish. Light bodied with big aggressively effervescent carb. A study in citrus, refreshing and very complex saison.
