On tap @ Provisions. Golden orange pour with a white head. Sweet apple, apricot, and sugar on the nose. Notes of alcohol, yeast, banana, and orange. Sweet, sugary flavor, too. Apricot, apple, and banana fruit notes. Pear, some orange, yeast, and a subtle spice. Light alcohol tartness. Not bad.

Capped 750 from Bine & Vine. Pours somewhat dishwater gold with a creamy white head. Light aroma of citrus and yeast/spice. Med body. Flavor is very earthy with unusual fruit ester. Runs from earthy to fruity tart to less than dry finish. Very unusual. And good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL from Whole Foods in Bend, OR. Pours a low haze, bright straw with ridiculous white foam. Huge volcanic retention and lacing. Nose is much better than expected- light, doughy, fresh yeast, fresh bread, pineapple yeast starter. Taste is thicker apple, pear. Palate is dry, a bit drained, very little sugar for style. Very low body, agree that it feels a bit pilsner like. More in the "imperial saison" area than BSA. Still enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Brouwer’s Cafe during Logsdon Brewer’s Night on 09/10/2013: This beer pours a cloudy golden color with a medium thin white head that dissipates slowly to a film. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, citrus and spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy yeast, grapefruit and spices. The finish is tart and fruity with a citrus and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

750mL bottle, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of strong farmhouse notes, hay, and some Belgian yeast. Flavour brings out loads of farmhouse notes, a little banana, Belgian yeast, and a little hay. Also a bit of sweetness. Wonderful depth and high drinkability. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 750ml bottle. Hazy gold body with a fine white head. Strangely floral and musty aroma, papery and plaster-like at times, then fruity / lemon / orange-like. Bright lemon zest, lemon grass, green onion even, some Simcoe-like, which is odd given the hop strain, but could be from the yeast. Acidic with citrus juiciness. Paperly, silt-like, filmy body. Honey sweetness in front with a dry and bitter finish. Nearly brett-like with it’s mustiness and abundance of waxy fruit esters. Interesting but also a bit overfermented with notes of cosmetics and soap and hairspray / acetone, especially in the aroma when it opens and warms.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy yellow with a foamy attractive white head and a floral aroma. There is a funky bitter earthy, yet fruity light malt flavor with a sour finish. A strange combination of tastes, but it works pretty well. It’s all explained in the beer’s name.

Bottle - Sweet and very fruity with some grass notes. Clear gold with a frothy white head. Sweet, stone fruit, light pepper notes and a small amount of bitterness in the finish to balance the sweetness. Very nice.
