tectactoe (2880) - 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 (2479) - 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 (2759) - 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 (25) - 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.

Boutip (4999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of sour and tart notes with light funky notes. Taste is also dominated by some sour and tart notes with some funky yeasty notes in the background with limited acidity level. Body is full with limited filtration and medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not as complex as I was anticipating and saison base beer is hard to decipher through all this aging but very good rink nonetheless.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle... Hazy peach pour with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose offers faint yeasty and woody notes. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Lightly tart, but not a lot of fruity flavor or complexity here. Finishes tangy and tongue-numbing. Vastly overrated. As disappointing as New Glarus Thumbprint Series Oud Bruin – which is also vastly overrated. Bottle courtesy of Rosebud butternuts!
