Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2012
On tap at Hay Merchant’s opening. Pours a dusty yellow with a white fizzy head. Nose of lemons and farmhouse aromas. Flavor is bright tart lemons and a great mild sourness. Good carbonation and light body with clean finish.

bowtiebeer (4) - California, USA - APR 12, 2014 does not count
Crisp and tasty but not a very complex saison. There’s a slight bitterness there in the finish and just a touch of tartness. Probably would be most welcome on a warm sunny day with some hard cheeses and salty cured meat.

bursprak (289) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 12, 2014
750 ml bottle, shared with my wife. From a trade, thanks Santin! Pours a dark clear golden fluid with a three finger white head. Aroma is really enjoyable with some earthy notes, light yeast, grain and some light lemon. Taste is a bit light but very balanced and nice. Some notes from the barrel, some light bitterness and some funk from the brett rounds it out.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. B!ère complexe et intéressante. Arômes d’agrume, d’épices et de fruits rouges. Super équilibre. Et superbe étiquette d’ailleurs ;)

Pours a light, mostly clear gold with a white head and lacing. It has an aroma of funk, and faint floral and oak notes. The flavor is lightly tart, with a funk and floral notes followed by sour and slightly spicy finish over a light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft - Lemon, grass, passion fruit and funk. Cloudy yellow with a decent white head. Lemon, dishwater, slight sour funk, oak and a bit of pepper. Smells great, doesn’t taste quite as good.

raradel (325) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Had during a bottle share at Pinglehead Brewing in Orange Park, Fl. One of the funky-est brews I have had. Great fruity sour flavors, lacks maturity and depth.
