slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is dominated by a bright, fruity acidity which is fairly distinctly strawberry, possibly some raspberry. Cloudy gold, little head. Flavor is similarly dominated by underripe strawberry sourness and a mild funkiness. Finishes bone-dry. A very simple wild saison, just enough sourness to punch up some of the less prevalent notes. Highly drinkable.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
A pale yellow color with a tall white head. Starts off with a mild lemon nose and some tart melon. Great wine aroma and a moderate funkiness, mostly straw and grass, maybe a hint of must. The flavor is more enjoyable than the nose. Great lactic tartness with some white grape, wine, and a hint of green apple. A light citrus note, plenty of straw and grass, and a bit of oak. Really an all around great beer.

arminjewell (6100) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 21, 2012
Pour out of 750 mL bottle is hazy orange with nice fluffy white head, aroma has notes of nice lactic, hints of oak, lemon, touch of white grape, touch of pear and biscuit notes, hints of slight funk. Taste is a nice mix of sour lemon and lactic, touch of biscuit, bread, and pear notes, hints of grape, finishing fairly sour. Nicely done, but the saison is pretty much gone.,

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 Bottle @ home, courtesy of arminjewell. Awesome, thanks! Cloudy, golden orange appearance with a white head. Tart, lemon, orange, pineapple citrusy, light vanilla, oaky aroma. Tangy, lacto acidic, lemon, orange, tangerine citrusy fruity, light wine, oaky flavor with a dry, lightly vinous finish. It’s hard to detect the whiskey.

Fratto (2617) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2012
Poured at the Big Texas Beer Festival. Hazy pour with a big white head. Aroma is sour, pineapples, wood, and tart. Taste is tart fruit, bitter, wheat toast, and a little wood.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2012
750ml bottle from Roosevelt’s. Pours hazy peach colored gold with white head. Aromas of lemon, funk, wood, and some tartness. Flavors of tart lemon, wood, white grapes, and some wheat. Palate is soft and mouthfeel is a little thick for a sour. Nice find though in south Texas.

TizzleJizzle (607) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle at Big Texas Beer Fest. Aroma of tart, vinegar, dough. Poured a golden yellow color with a small head that dissipated quickly. Tasted light funk, yeasties, citrus and tart. Watery palate. Overall not a great sour, but a great crossover between a Saison and sour

crosamich (431) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2012
This is a tasty & interesting brew. I like the idea of a sour saison. This version gives just a touch of the funk with some underlying earthy notes behind citrus and sour apple. Sourness is there but not overpowering, balanced well with the rest of the beer.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 10, 2012
Bottle via a trade with bu11zeye. Pours with a hazed vibrant straw-golden hued body. Large white head fights the acidity and eventually loses. Some lace. Strong floral aroma interlaced with medium levels of funk. Medium oak tannin, white wine, vinous, brett, barrel, flowers, medium brett phenols, light lactic sourness, some spicy notes. Very mild malt. Flavors are quite lactic tart, medium funk, white wine, yogurt, floral, pepper, medium oak. Good brett L and B character. Quite dry. Lively bubbles, dry, somewhat mouthwatering. Sour. Cleanly sour. Quenching. Great little sour. Somewhat Temptation-esque with a slightly less developed funk character.

cpetrone84 (1334) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
pour is cloudy fuzzy orange with a thinner white head with loose . Interesting stuff, lots of dry wood, notes of tart lemon, a touch of lacto, notes of citric orange peel. The taste follows, a touch tannic and a hint of whiskey. Semi dry finish, high tight carb, about empty in the back. More oranges towards the back and a decent sweetness accompanies the lactic acid notes.
