Sarlacc83 (809) - Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle from Todd. Thanks! A: Big fluffy white head. Very clear gold body with lots of bubbles. N: Straw, pine, esters, lemon, lime, coriander, blood orange, hibiscus, biscuit. T: Quite sour without a little fruit and sweetness. M: Quite light, well carbonated. O: An interesting sour saison. (This is really a Sour/Wild) with good clean flavors. A beer I drank quite a bit of as it lacks the annoying sweet-tart non-complexity of other American Wilds.

douglas88 (6134) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A great fresh nose of fruit, oranges and clear floral notes. Lime, a bit of oranges in the flavor, herbal tea, a very light super drinkable brew. Very floral.

laiti (5777) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
75cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ, bottled 27.04.2013
Aroma has grapefruit and citrus. Also funky earthy notes and ’farmyard’ aromas. Flavour has strong grapefruit and citrus notes. Foamy palate. A saison on the tart side, which lacks the yeasty notes typical to this category.

75 cl bottle @ PBF IX. Bottled on 27.04.2013.
Pours cloudy golden color with a large white head. Crisp lemony fruits on the aroma, some mild spice notes with yeast and earth. Grapefruits and lemon on the flavor, very crisp, some yeast and spices also. Nice, crisp and citric but not the best Saison I’ve tasted.

Bottle 750ml (PBF IX)
Hazy yellow color, small steady white head. Light barnyard, tartness in the nose. Light to medium--bodied. Citrus, tartness and barnyard in the flavor. Berliner Weisse like grapefruity sourness in the aftertaste. Interesting.

750ml bottle from a trade, thanks CheapBeerBuzz! @ PBF IX

Bottled 270413 - Pours hazy yellowish orange with a thick white head. Aroma of lime, citrus, spices, lemon and orange peel. Taste is tart, spicy, fruity and sourish with loads of gapefruit, lemon, orange peel and citrus. Finish is tart, sourish and fruity with some citrus and grapefruity notes. Pretty balanced and refreshing saison.

lusikka (6347) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
750 ml bottle @ PBF IX. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of juicy citrusy notes, urinal cake, orange zest and floral hops. Rich flavour of juicy sour citrus, floral bitterness, mild yeastiness, rosehip, some grass and some spiciness. Medium bodied and high carbonation. Finishes dry and very citrusy. Good. Way too citrusy and lacks yeastiness and that Saison graininess.
