hawthorne00 (3541) - Melbourne, - SEP 4, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2016 Bottle, 12C. Amber with a fluffy off-white head that collapses to a coat that lasts. Aroma of apples, pears, light toffee, musty dough, pepper, balsamic vinegar. Very overcarbonated mouthfeel (second glass poured from unstoppered bottle poured with a huge head but then was fine). Fruit and caramel sweetness, applish tartness, modest bitterness, very dry indeed with some spices and a slight bretty smack at the end. Can see great from here. Rustic and (carbonation issues aside) good. [3.6]

Small bottle, batch 1, bb 11/16 . Clear reddish amber with a half inch head. Light toffee, balsamic, autumnal fruit. Still far too carbonated, but again settles down after a while Hmm, maybe there was no brett. Seeing this being cleared some places, this suggests worth seeing what it’s like in a decade.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2016
375mL bottle from Slowbeer. Bottled July 2016 Very much red body, slight haze, holds an off-white head. Aroma reveals layers of cherry, plum, dark toffee malts, biscuit, touch of citrus & yoghurty funk - quite unique. Palate starts quite full, acidity & some tannin kicks in & grabs hold, drying proceedings out; lively carbonation. Malty upfront - toffee, nuts - then fruitiness kicks in - red plums, sour cherry, touch of wood - then some funk - natural yoghurt, hard cheese, good kick of acidity on the finish. Saison meets Oud Bruine - very good

Bottle recommends to pour carefully for good reason - you’ll be greeted by a monster head as I was in my haste. Whilst a rich, smokey, malt flavour hits straightaway, the beer is comparatively light and easy to drink. Nice. NB: There’ll also be a couple of tasty floaties waiting to be munched on at the bottom of your glass.

On tap at The Archive for Armakeggon. Served with a truffle oil hard cheese, this was delicious, complex, a touch smokey, very nice.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle from Plonk. clear brown pour with off white head. Saison yeast aromas with brown malt, hint of chocolate. Carbonation could be a bit higher. Nice interesting saison.

floydian1 (1362) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 7, 2015
From an elegant heavy-glassed 375ml bottle with BBD of 10/6/16. Red-brown pour with a large dense tan head that lasts. The toasty sweet caramel malts definitely trump the farmhouse/saison components in this beer on the nose and palate but the elements are still there and this is quite subtly complex. Notes of dark fruits and yeasty spices in there with a nice dryish finish. Slick medium body with lively carbonation.

DeliriumT (500) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2015
Pours an amazing deep ruby with white lacing. Aroma of sour cherries, lemons, bananas, hint of pineapple. Flavour is thick with cherry, raspberry, sugary caramel and faint clove. Great farmhouse ale but I expect nothing less from La Sirene. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Samma (160) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2015
From bottle. Not a huge amount on the nose. Pours amber/red. Quite full bodied with a little spritz. Not as complex as I’d hoped, with less of the rural flavours. Seems to sit in an awkward middle ground stylistically. Definitely the weakest beer I’ve had from these usually stellar brewers.
