TwinBeer (58) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Nice and tart lemon, orange with oak and peppery finish. This beer goes down smooth and making you want to try it over and over again. Great job of blending.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2016
A murky dark amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light grassy hops, light Brett, light lactic notes, light ground cherry, very nice and smooth. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with good Brett and ground cherries, lactic acid, grapeskin, nice and refreshing. Bièropholie.

Bottle from errl-thanks, Chris! Cloudy straw yellow. Nose is light lemon, barnyard funk. Taste is lightly tart, full bodied. Round minerality, aged hops, light lemon tartness, wheat and light malts. Great balance, highly drinkable.

umich03jm (3493) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2015
Bottle thanks to errl. Clear gold pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma is really nice. Lemon, leather, figs, honey, musty hay, and vinegar. Tastes very dry and leathery. Pretty tart too. Lemon peel, leather, hay, vinegar, apple skins, and earth. Medium body. Pretty interesting. Kinda wish it wasn’t so dry but I still really liked it.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy with golden edges & an orange, sunburned center. Foamy white cap piles up nicely, leaving decent lacing behind. Aroma of tart green apple, zesty lemon & citrus, mild farmhouse twinges with some wet hay, funky cork, & some damp mustiness. Flavor follows through with lemon zest, ripe apple sourness, oaky tannins, a touch of acetic apple cider-like vinegar, & a strong backlog of musky hay & some damp farmhouse flavor. An intentionally soured saison. A touch of funky cork in the finish as the acidity grows with time, sharp & tart ending. Thin-medium, snappy mouth feel. Really nice beer.

suprchunk (2960) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Deep golden/straw colored pour. Slight white head. No lacing. Aroma of malt and hops with a very nice sourness beneath it. Some bready notes as well. Taste is the same with some lemon notes.

Marheb (4916) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Une saison bien florale avec bon mordant acétique qui voit ses céréales littéralement craquer sous la dent. Le vieillissement en barriques est pas trop musclé mais laisse quand même ses traces tanniques qui contribuent à la sécheresse.

drainpour (30) - Santa Rosa, USA - SEP 25, 2014
I love the taste, lemon-lime with funk, nice mouth viscous mouth feel, dry finish with some tannins and wood. The nose is very lacto heavy to me, thus the slightly lower score there. Enjoy it. I’d drink a second.
