Sample at SBWF 2014.
Hazy golden with a white head. Nice sour and vinous aroma of fruit, oak, some light berries, funk and wine. Similar taste. The finish was long and nicely sour. An interesting and nicely drinkable beer. Could I have a bottle please?

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Huge, dense, slowly collapsing yellow head over finely carbonated orange beer, cloudy. Lactic, sourish, Brett-like, citrus in the nose, further aromas of (wild) mushrooms, barnyard, old wine. Deep, complex and tantalizing. Bread - and Brett... Lactic acid, fruitacids and.... malonic, maybe? Fresh double cream, red fruit; alcohol and fusels in the finish. Again a ’wild’ streak - mushrooms, and, indeed, noble rot. Warming up, strawberry liqueur. Very spritzy, acidity making it very lively, refreshing. Long lasting acidity in feel and aftertaste. Only medium bodied. Superb realisation. It’s a true sipping beer - which means it is ANYTHING BUT a Saison. Imagine drinking this whilst mowing a field... OK, that doesn’t diminish any of its qualities. Grand merci à Jean H!

750 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a murky, but bright golden orange with creamy-ish, lasting white head. Aroma is funky and sour fruit with some sweetish caramel and grains.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild säuerlicher Beginn, der Kirschnoten aufweist. Diese verschwinden bald wieder, das Bier wird trockener, vollmundig. Die Säuerlichkeit ist nun mild, das Bier holzig und süffig mit kurzen alkoholischen Unterbrechungen. Nettes süffiges Saures. 10/11/12/12/12/12
