electrotype (226) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAR 28, 2014
La levure sauvage prend beaucoup de place. Sa présence se sent, entre autre, au niveau d’une astrigence assez prononcée qui se développe dans l’arrière-bouche. C’est légèrement surette mais ça aurait pu l’être davantage. L’apparence est irréprochable. J’arrive difficilement à détecter la présence de notes de vin blanc. Une bière appréciée, particulièrement parce que son style est assez rare au Québec.

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 (7939) - 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!

Swaroga (1353) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
60cl. Bottle at Moeder Lambic. Greatly balanced and easy to drink yet rich palate. One of the most agreable sours I’ve tried so far.

Theydon_Bois (8743) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle split at Mother Arch, big thanks to Harry, 06/09/14. Lightly hazed orange with a good sized off white head that dissipates to spotting and edgework. Nose carries good white wine ba vibes, light vanilla, spice, mellow fruits, woody rinse, tarte citrics, peach. Taste comprises a white grape tang, vanilla, subtle wine tones, woody rinse, light must, lychee, funk, tropical infusion. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Subtle BA sour - good stuff!

Spab (2421) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
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. Flavour is big on brett, very trat berries and tree fruit, some caramel and a solid graininess. Plus body. Nice one.

Koelschtrinker (10710) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
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

At Bellwoods in Toronto. Clear amber with small white head. Very little lacing. Definitive Brett character to the nose. Taste is very representative of the style. Will definitely seek this one out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrisoni (13780) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle at Kernel with Harry. thanks Harry. Hazy gold amber. Lasting white head. Decent sour aroma with some sweetness. Good sour. Bready sweetness. Bit of caramel. Pretty good. Sweetness. Sour and sweet some hop on the finish. It’s just a touch sweet but the honey bread and hop is good. Barrel adds some character. Good.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2086) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
A clear copper gold with a filmy white head. It has a musty tart saison aroma. Wonderfully soft mouthfeel. Tart musty sour, light oakiness, very approachable.
