4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle [750ml]. Pours a clear, very bubbly, golden-orange with a large lasting fizzy off-white head. Nice aroma of sour fruit, wood, spices, yeast, light floral hops, lemon and more, lots going on here. Flavourís even better, itís also sour, yeasty, and everything else but itís refreshing as well, and a joy to drink. Dry, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. I really like that the barrel-ageing is subtle and not overdone. Average to medium bodied. Well done, this is a fantastic beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden coloured body with a large, five centimetre tall white head and a nice bit of effervescence from the bottom and sides. Medium-bodied; Strong yeastie and wheatie note with a lot of movement, some light sugars, a hint of herbal and grassy notes, some light spices and a hint of brett noticeable. Aftertaste shows some nice effervescence, a good yeast note and a bit of herbal hops and malt which show well, but not as great as most other reviews show and I didn’t get any real sour notes at all, just a few hints of brett. Overall, a nice beer with bunches of good flavour, but nothing ridiculously good as expected and for the price!

Bottle from tommy, thanks bud. Notes are butter oak, tart berries, vino, barn, fruit skin, leathery brett, and more funky goodness. Perfect balance with a touch of caramel smoke? Medium in body. This one was a treat.

A douse of sour grapes in a characteristic Belgian saison aroma. Very fruity in aroma. Not a very clean look but okay for a farmhouse. Not much lacing but pours with a lovely color.
Sweet taste in with the very wild yeast taste and sour fruit notes. Palate is very comfortable and this beer has a great balance throughout.

Golden pour. Citrus, yeast, light hops on the nose. Great flavour all around - yeast, citrusy hops, fruit, and slight funk. Delicious and refreshing.

Love the Magic the Gathering like art on the bottle. Light amber pout with a light white head. Strong fruity citrus scent. Donít think Iíve ever tasted anything like this. Fizzy on the tongue. Sweet at first then a taste that reminds me of grapes. Thatís us followed by a slight IPA bitterness. Normally I donít like this but itís very subtle. This was well worth the price.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy, light amber. Fluffy white head dies down to a clingy lacing. Aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, candy?s, leather, slight funkiness. Flavours again of sweet pineapple, fleshy grapefruit, lemon, and a touch of new world Sauvignon Blanc grape. Medium body, sticky, lively carbonation leading to a slightly astringent, bitter, dry finish. Not as sour as I was hoping for, too much Belgian Strong Golden Ale coming through, IMO

Bottle to flute
Sour cherries, brett, and wine. Cloudy brownish amber with a long lasting thin creamy head. Taste is AMAZING; sour throughout, with a nice bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Lemon grass, citrus, candy like sourness and grassy hops. Frothy head that dissipates but still sticks, cloudy gold. Lemon grass, sour citrus, grass and unfortunately a bit of medicine in the finish that kind of kills it for me. A great saison, just shy of awesome. I have a few that I will age to see what happens with the Bret.

HOLY HELL! Copper pour, white head. Flavor is just badass. White wine grapes, light vinegar sourness, light oak flavors, funky brett notes, leather, lemons, yeast, floral and freaking delicious.
