750mL bottle, shared with Lizardville Staff. really not keen on this one, maybe it needed more time to get funky in the bottle, but as of now its kind of a mildly tart beer, which I enjoyed its easy to drink mild hints of oak, no real saison charm.. solid beer though just because its easy to drink and enjoy.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Golden orange pour with a nice off-white head. Light aroma, a hint of oaky vanilla, tartness, doughy pale malts, some lemon and grapefruit. Good flavor - more tartness mixed with oak, brett, lemon and other citrus. Tasty!

burg326 (3248) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle, poured a clear hazy yellow color with aromas of light funk, some citrus, dough, and light wine. Flavors follow suit, not overly sour, tart citrus, and a dry finish.

AlainG (1040) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2013
Blonde voilée surmontée d’une mousse persistante qui se colle à la parois en y laissant quelques traces. Un bon nez de levures sauvages, de champs fleuri, de pommes vertes, de cerises surettes de bois vert et de bois sec. En bouche, une belle acidité entremêlée d’amertume avec un côté sec et poivré. En ce qui me concerne, c’est une belle surprise. (764-030813)

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Straw colored, a bit hazy, small to moderate sudsy white head, little lacing.   Tart nose, oakish, slightly vinous in a white wine sense.   Has a soft wheaty aspect too.   Sour on the tongue, not brash, just about the right amount.   Seems pretty simple, not a lot of depth.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   As it warms I get a soft white grape like finish, with a little bit of oak.   This one, while simple, was pretty tasty!   Thanks Bill!

Bottle. This beers balance of tart, funk, and fruit is the stuff of my dreams. I received this in a trade and really hope that it reaches distribution out here in PA because I would stock up on this like crazy. I'm seeing Jester King around a lot more these days so things are looking good.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
Bouteille de 750ml. Bière blonde dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez intéressant de bois mouillé, de lambic et d’acide lactique. La bouche est sèche, ce qui la rend d’une digestibilité remarquable. Elle n’est pas trop acide, facile, très désaltérante. Elle offre un côté boisé blanc qui se mêle au blé de grande qualité. Par contre il y a une certaine âpreté en fin de bouche. 7/10

SlovakSniper (2826) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
Une bière dorée et son anneau mousseux volatile. Un nez de plantes et d’animaux, de peau de raisin, de poire dure et de pomme verte avec des effluves vanillées et un chêne qui perd des arômes de coco. Des saveurs aigrelettes, délicatement mordantes comme un jeune raisin blanc et bien acidulées comme une petite pomme surette qui pousse à l’orée des forêts de la belle campagne. Une bouche soumise au concept de la buvabilité. Une finale fruitée, aigre et boisée. Une bière facile à boire et amusante.
