Really a funny aroma. Taste is a little wird and has very odd characters that I can’t name but I certainly like. A little sourness. great stuff.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Sampled from magnum bottle. Pours a clear gold with a nice white head and remarkable lacing. Aroma has notes of sweet pears and leather. Flavor is spicy and very floral, almost like a rose water, with juniper. There is a tartness that may have been imparted by wild yeast. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated. Exceptional farmhouse saison. Welcome this is a farmhouse - Phish.

minutemat (1286) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Wow. Now this beer is remarkable. Fresh banana esque aroma from the off, with an indulgent soft Belgian yeast and lemon flavour that fills the glass. Wasn’t expecting this from an unfamiliar beer but this is excellent. Now to search out their other offerings.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
Hazy amber colour, thick white, persistent head. Very perfumey aroma, oak, lactic sourness and a bit of barnyard funkiness. Slight citric aroma as well. Flavour is fairly sweet, perfumy, cherry, black pepper, and bit of sherry-oxidized wine character in here. Full-bodied, yet refreshing. Light spice and a touch of juniper in here as well. Complex and very tasty.

JonMoore (1840) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2005
Bottle. Nice clear gold with a large white head. Aroma has sweet biscuity malts and some nice light fruit. My first thought on tasting this was that this beers average score is somewhat of a travesty, it’s the danger of statistics I suppose. Excellent biere de garde; spicey, malty and fruity with some caramel and fresh yeast. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, with some warming alcohol in the finish. Very good.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - NOV 2, 2004
750 ml. green champagne style bottle. Corked and caged. Freshness date on bottom of front label is of Dec 2005. Number on cork is 59111. Poured out a slightly hazy golden yellow color, with a minimal white head. It slowly slid back to a yeasty island floating on top of the beer. Aromas are of fresh cut hay, sweet yeasty bread, slight toffee and caramels, and an esoteric sweet, fruity smell. Tastes are of sweet caramels and toffees, along with a fruity taste akin to papaya or the like. Medium mouthfeel, rich and smooth. No so highly carbonated as to make your tongue dance with excitement, but it has a decent level of carbonation all the same. Alcohol aftertaste to it, but the hops (if any) are hardly discernable. Finishes rather sweet, but not cloying at all. A decent French ale by any standard.

Grossecaisse (120) - FRANCE - JAN 12, 2010
Contrairement à l’ambrée qui m’avait décu par son amertume et le gout de houblon trop intense. Celle la est vraiment une bonne bignouse.

rlgk (10055) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle at Delirium Cafe, Göteborg. Yellow/golden ciolor, small white head. Nutty, malty aroma with creamy notes. Maltyu, nutty flavor, smotthand with a nice balance from hops. Vinous notes and some raisins.
