thepatrickman (239) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 11, 2016
750 ml bottle -- supposed to be shared, but no one else wanted a sour. Oh well! Extremely pleasant -- the aroma is saison yeast, lime, and some faint floral notes, and the taste is crisp, slightly sour, and really balanced. Another outstanding beer from Greensboro, VT.

blankboy (6920) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2016
[My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a hazy yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting bubbly white head and minimal lacing. Aroma starts good and gets better and better. Lots of fruit -- blood orange and more -- along with yeast, herbs and light hops. Pleasant tart flavour, citrusy, yeasty and herbal. Medium bodied. F’in great stuff, wish I had tons of it!

cagou007 (689) - FRANCE - DEC 22, 2015
Pours cloudy orange with thin white head. Nose is sour and fruity. Aromas are citrus (lime, grapefruit), hay, maybe a pumpkin note. Strong sourness. Average carbonation, medium body. Long sour finish. I didn't get the Hawaiian hibiscus and the cotton evokes by another member! ;) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (2641) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a tulip. Orange with medium white head. Aroma is light funk, light body, well carbonated, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is slightly tart, some funk, some citrus, some bitterness, and slightly dry finish. Easy to drink, if you like the dryer ones this might be a favorite. I recall preferring Anna.
