JBPortland (1205) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 11, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 375ml bottle pours hazy semi-clear gold with small 1 finger head. Nose is funk, barrel, tart golden apples and hay, straw. Mouthfeel is so well balanced, delicate but not thin, just the right amount of moderate carbonation. Taste is bright tart apple skin, funky, woody, hay, citrus, grape, barnyard. Finish is complex white grape, oak, earthy, barrel notes. Complex, elegant, delicious. Wonderful!

Drank on my birthday last year. From the backlog. Hazy peach pour with a solid frothy head. Earthen funk, blue and brie cheese, peaches, and werthers candy. Very vibrant lactic acidity. Wicked dry. Would slurp all day.

tectactoe (3120) - Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle: Beaming golden color with soft amber at the edges. Hazy, mostly opaque throughout the center with a dense radiance. Foamy, bubbly white head that settles quickly on top. Big time vinous aroma. Huge Pinot Grigio nose; very dry with tons of white grape, oak, soft tannins, slight barnyard must, & a sharp acidity nearing the back-end. Flavor is tart; lots of lemon, under-ripe green apple, sour grapes, loaded with a nice, dry & vinous oak profile running front to back. Mineral water, soft hay, stone fruit skin, white wine, dry oak, & a very mildly acidic finish that never gets overbearing. A touch of funky lychee lingers in the end. Great stuff as always.

From short notes... Clear yellow straw pour with no head. Nose is white wine and bitter tannins, citrus, and nice Brett's. Still some diactyl and the distinct HF BA saison character. Lightly sour and dry end. Nice palate. Taste is the same with more Lemon and yeast. All the HF BA saisons have the same feel to me. Good drinking beer.

Benzai (10381) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle shared by Koen @ "Zunt Om Nog Langer Te Bewaren" tasting (ZONLTB). Hazy, even a bit murky or milky pale yellow to orange color (must admit I poured the last of the bottle), small white head. Smell and taste sourish, orangepeel, apricot, farmhouse, lightly yeast. Hmm quite fruity and sourish. Decent body and carbonation. Quite pleasant.

cpetrone84 (1718) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Pour is hazed yellow with a tight white ring. Nose has a good bit of barrel with a hint of buttered popcorn and strong citrus and tangerine notes. Taste is stronger citrus with lots of orange pulp and a faint barrel with a lingering citrus bitterness. Light body, flavor is short, a hint slick with assertive carbonation.
