OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Batch 859/861 Bottled 8-3-2011 Served in a Duvel Tulip. A - Pours a hazy golden color with a 2 finger head that held up very well. A few droopy lines of lacing. S - Funky basement yeast, spicy, dusty dry grass, pears, sourdough bread, tangy fruit, dank wheat malt, T - Nice tart lemon upfront, allspice, heavy dose of pepper, soured fruit, dried apples and pears, the brett yeast is more subtle than the nose but really compliments the beer. Notes of wood in the background. Finishes dry with a crisp citrus bite at the end. M - Moderate foamy carbonation settles down a bit half way through the glass, light to medium body. Not super complex but great flavors packed into a small ABV. Very impressed by that. The lemon was a tad lactic, plenty of spiciness, solid fruity middle with a dry finish. The aroma was almost perfect for what I want a Saison to smell like. I liked this better than the E.S. Bam. Serving type: bottle 09-15-2012

Ysok02 (733) - MOns, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Une très belle saison, tout en fruit et en fraîcheur sur un nez finement acidulé qui évoque les fleurs de sureau et une bouche tendue, équilibrée et harmonieuse. Idéale sur les os à moelle. Un régal.

ippopotamo36 (1250) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 14, 2016
Bottle purchased at the Hoppiness Beer Store in Capodistria-Slovenia and consumed in Kosovo. Bottled 12/2014, 1 year old. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, very tick white head a bit irregular but with so much retention. Nose: brett, a bit piney, pretty much citric but more lime. With the time some yellow pulp fruit comes up, mostly peach. Very complex, floral too. Pleasant nose! Mouth: definitely a frizzy start in terms of carbo. as the beer breaths carbonation tents to lower, leaving the floor to a watery sourish character. Farmhouse feel of milled malts, a bit tart in the beginning but dry in the end. Meant for session and summer evenings.
