Bottle from Jeff in Texas. Pour is much clearer than the Uberkind but a similar golden straw pour with a thick white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is primarily yeast.. def a saison character.. oak, peach, white grapes, floral, which a slightly sour undertone. Taste very similar to the nose.. oak, light fruit, some spice..mostly cinnamon some cardamom, earthy. High carbonation with a champagne dryness. Overall a nice sour and saison yeast balance but carbonation was overdone and distracting. Much tastier after it had warmed up a bit.

Slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, wild yeast, grapes, and light wood. The taste is wine-like and a little bit tangy, but the dominant flavors remind me a lot of a thin wheat with souring yeast. It’s sour, just barely. Light-medium bodied and a touch fizzy. Kind of weak, though it would make a nice alternative to most session type beers, if it weren’t so expensive.

Bottle thanks to errl. Pours a hazy pale copper with a ring of white foam. Aroma has a citrusy tart zing and heavy brett with some peppery notes. Taste is just slightly tart. It has a peachy taste to it as well. Overall it’s pretty tasty, just not as sour as I would prefer.

Aroma is citrus and a lovely barnyard funk. Pours cloudy yellow with a mostly diminishing white head with no lacing. The taste is mostly acetic. Lemon and wild yeast. Puckerinfly crisp. Dry finish. Light mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Overall, deliously sour and very drinkable.

ineedbeer (1095) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
A light fruitiness with balanced phenolics and well integrated funkiness. A citrus quality with a touch of pineapple. A light background graininess and a touch of lactic acidity. No hop or alcohol aroma. Pours a cloudy orangish hay with a thin white head that quickly recedes. No lacing and no legs. Flavor starts with a nice acidic kick. This follows with some citrus and pineapple. A light barnyard flavor then ushers in a touch of graininess. Moderately low bitterness. Finish has a touch of a clove phenolic note. Nice mineral quality to the water. No hop flavor. No alcohol flavor. Mouthfeel is medium light body with moderately low carbonation. Only a touch of astringency and very low alcohol warmth. Overall this is a really enjoyable beer. It has a nice saison character but with a really good acidity. I could go for a bit more fruitiness in aroma and flavor though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (7311) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pours cloudy blonde with a thin off-white head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a mildly sour fruit flavor with a dry earthy finish. Very easy to drink, though not as sour as most saisons..

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle shared by Kan. Thanks! Pours a pale orange-gold with a billowy head. hazed. Nose is really nice. Fruity & tart, loads of Brett C. Peaches and clean. On tasting, light & dry, medium tartness. More peaches and a robust brett profile. Lactic acid and some light vanilla. Quite clean and seems intentional.

jerohen (2061) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2012
On draft at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Hazy golden colored, white head. Lambic-like nose, yeast, fruity. Pretty sour flavor, quite harsh, but not very complex. Lasting sour finish. No match for the classic Belgian lambics, but certainly a nice try.

750ml bottle. Thanks to mar for the trade... Bottle opens with a small hiss and yields a mostly transparent orangey brown hue and topped with a thin wispy white head... Aroma of semi-tart oak and whiskey notes, lemony a cents and a touch of nuttiness, perhaps coconut... Flavors are more of the same with a lemony sour focus. Clean with a whiskey and oak profile but remains fairly sour throughout. Pretty darn nice and at 4.5% to boot which is really nice.
