Des arômes intenses de citron avec des notes abricots. Un goût légèrement acide, légèrement boisé aux saveurs d’agrumes avec une moyenne amertume. Après plusieurs gorgées, l’arrière goût du vin botrytisé devient trop dominant laissant un goût assez amer. Une bière spéciale, complexe mais pas exceptionnelle.

TimE (3261) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2014
Dark Amber color. Big oaky nose with modest sourness a DJ dried apricots. Medium body. Medium heavy mouth, with lots of oak. Slight sour, peppery with some fried fruits. The oak lingers, slightly sour. Very nice, but barrel aged saisons aren’t my favorite.

gyllenbock (4864) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2014
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?

Bule (782) - California, USA - OCT 10, 2014
750ml bottle pours a hazy yellow Amber color. Great blend of mild sour, wild yeast and mild hops. The sourness mellows after some breathing time. Superb!

omhper (19659) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2014
Bottled at SBWF. Hazy golden, coarse head. Oaky, fruity nose with vanilla and cobwebs. Mid dry with medium body and dense, well rounded mouthfeel. Oaky white wine, funk and hay. Mid bitter finish. Conentrated, complex and unusual flavours, great balance.

JorisPPattyn (7973) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2014
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!
