Bottle from Erzbierschof, courtesy of Pibar
The bottle is slowly gushing bottle; cloudy blond color, with medium sized but short lived head. Nice aroma, there is cellar, lemon, sweat, fruity character. Dry and highly carbonated mouthfeel; quite good character, cellar, cedar peel, orange; moderate acidity, well under control, and correct bitterness.
Very nice.

Thanks Ole!!! Very drinkable saison with a mild tartness and fantastic flavors. Like an explosion of flavor all over the palate. Delicious!

MartinT (8855) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Wilderness, citrus zest and spicy hop greenness yield a tart, fruity and woody finish for a unpretentious and highly pleasant Wild Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the cloudy beige.
-Acidic splash sticks to the palate.
-Initially highly effervescent, but dimming quickly.
-This is very rustic and fun, but it could be more polished.

Bottle.

Pailhead (6144) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of heavy citrus, orange peel, light lemon, and a hint of wine. I am a hazy dull golden-orange with a small white that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with with moderate-heavy citrus with light orange peel. The finish has light sour lemon, oak, and white wine. It?s light bodied with lively carbonation.

madvike (3149) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle - Pours hazy amber with a foamy off white head. Nose is fruity and dry, with some peach and lightly peppery spicy pale malt. Less fruit in the taste, with pale malt, dry pepperiness, and a spicy finish. Lots of carbonation and pretty thin. Not much in the way of barrel, and not really sour. Tasty.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2013
sample at The Festival. grassy saison, touch of tartness, slight oakiness. Peachy fruitiness, touch of apricots. Some funky yeastiness. Another winer from Jester King

Boutip (5468) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright yellow color ale with a medium size head with light retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light barnyard notes is refreshing. Taste is also dominated by tart notes with light oak notes and some barnyard notes that are not overly dominant. Some acidic notes are also discernable but not too the extent where they overwhelmed some of the other flavours. Body is about average with medium to low carbonation. Not the most complex sour beer but very well balanced with acidic notes not taking over all the flavours.

Bottle at Beer Temple. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is citrussy, fruity, almost a bit lambic like. Taste is citrussy, soft and nicely balanced sourness. Very refreshing and drinkable. Good stuff.
