2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Myrup. Very cloudy yellow beer with a dense and creamy off-white head. Fresh and fruity nose with a whiff of yeast. Medium-bodied with some caramel and fruit and a distinct sourness all through the finish. Clearly - and sadly - infected. 311008

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
50 cL bottle, courtesy of Myrup. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Light phenolic and roasted malt aroma. Spiced and citric flavoured with a mild spice note beyond the initial flavour. Citric and slight malty flavoured with a distinct citric note on the before the finish. Spiced and towards dry citric into the finish. I guess the spice composition and missing balance towards the citric hops makes this a no-go for me.

(Bottled). Thanks oh6gdx.
Hazy, orange color with small white head. Sour, glueish, lightly fruity aroma. Sour, apricot, mango and grapefruit flavors. Sourness indicated that this was perhaps infected? (other ratings tell about tartness too)

A Mes rate: bottle at Chris_O’s "Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf / Hog Fest" tasting.
Cloudy amber with a thin white head. I’ll agree with the Hog fella here, a nice saison like Belgian character to it all round really. Faint lemon sourness with a good yeasty base. Very dry making me keep wanting to sip at it. Nice stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. At Chris_O’s September 2008 DenCan bash. Provided by the brewers (nice to meet you both!). Murky gold pour with a decent foamy off-white head, quitte a few floaties. Rather saison-like aroma - tart, spicy, dry and funky/yeasty, underpinned by sweet malt (made me think of pears). While still quite fruity, the taste had less spiciness and more tartness ... the overall mouthfeel was dry, average palate, solid carbonation with the tartness lingering medium-long. Tasty, I quite liked it (seemed a bit astraddle styles, but who cares)
