07/03/2015 sample from 750 ml bottle @ ACBF 2015, Vichte. Hazy orangr. Aroma : lemon, hops, funky. Taste : lemon, citrus, hops. This is not my favorite taste but I could imagine opening a bottle on a hot summer’s day and I would be glad with it.

77ships (4960) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ ACBF 2015. Hazy orange, little head. Nose is huge lemon, citrus, lemon, peel zest sour mixed with delicious fruity hops. Taste is lemon, hay, funk, lots of hops, funk, crazily drinkable, in part thanks to the sourness. Outstanding beer. Really loved it. (Thanks for sharing people!!!)

sebletitje (7430) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle sample @ ACBF 2015. Dorée, col blanc. Arôme offre un beau bouquet fleuri et de brett, léger en boisé avec un agréable rétro de whisky. Je note presque une présence torréfiée. Palais garde ce profil étrange qui allie un malté grillé, quoique la bière reste claire avec un léger boisé. Le côté suret du brett reste présent et se marie bien avec les notes de vin et de whisky qui ne sont pas surfaites.

Swaroga (1662) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2015
Sampled at ACBF 2015. Rich in flavor with a well balanced game between sourness, malt notes and hoppy notes. The bitterness is also mellow. Overall well hopped and refreshing . Good thirst quencher. I enjoy hoppy and delicately sour beers and this one is a good example.

UXO (696) - CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
Pours hazy straw with one finger of rocky white head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is complex - wet hay and barnyard funk, woody oak, apples and pears, grapes, stone fruit, vinegar. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (6/10) Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, dry finish. (3/5) Well, that’s different! Dunno how "saison" it is, but there’s loads of wild funk flavour there, along with some mild tartness and even a slight saltiness. Not to mention, oaky white wine and whiskey flavours. Bit of a kitchen sink, really, and takes some getting used to, but ultimately interesting and not at all unpleasant. A tad pricey for an interesting experiment, mind you... (12/20)

Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with an off white head. Slightly hay. Smooth, drinkable barnyard hay character tasty. Very nice.

tectactoe (3072) - Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle: Thanks to huskermike. Light-orange, cloudy & hazy with a burnt center. Big-bubbled white head grows big & settles quick, some wet, sloppy lacing left on the glass. A nice cloud of funk blankets the aroma, alongside tart fruits; apple, white grape, lemon zest, generic stone fruit. Very mild vinous & tart character, hint of wood, vinegar, & acetic sourness. Back-end with more of a mild damp hay, horseblanket, & musty cork finish. Flavor has a nice cellar-floor, old cork & farmhouse funk right out of the gate. It settles in quickly to a sharp tartness; sour green apple, grape, lemon, mild apricot. Slightly acidic with some pleasing white wine vinegar notes in the latter half. Finishing wet oak, tannins, hay, must, & white grape. Light bouts of biscuit yeast, ending pretty clean & super dry. Loved the hell out of this one. A favorite JK regular rotation beer for me.

KyotoLefty (7240) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle. Hoppy, funky nose, some urinal cake, grapefruit, cream, some honey. Hazy gold color, lace. Funky, earthy flavor, grassy, grapefruit. Nice prickly carbonation.
