Bottle shared @ Craft. Light amber pour with a small head. The nose is lemon peel, apricot, orange peel. White pepper ice cream. The taste is more peach, countryside earthy yeastiness. Some mild brett tart notes. Soft wood. Sherbet. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, quite pleasant indeed.

Scopey (6659) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle at my birthday drinks, many thanks to Bruce! It pours cloudy golden/light orange with a small white head. The nose is wood, barnyard, vanilla, toasted coconut, apricot and peach. The taste is earth, brett, spice, orange, fleshy peach, apricot, hay, touch of alcohol and dough with a dry finish. Medium+ body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Good balance and flavour. Rather well done.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during Paulís Birthday Celebration - London. Thanks to Bruce for this one. Pours hazy yellow-gold with a light, creamy white head. Good funky nose, lots of poo, manure, light yeast notes. Light to medium sweet flavor with good funk, further poo character, light lemon, some dry dough. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Clean and dry to finish with manure, brett, hay, pale malts, faint grassy bitterness. Lovely. One of the beers of the day.

blankboy (6007) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
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.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
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!

PhillyCraft (3166) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
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. Exceptionally made. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

gilvanblight (772) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
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.
