bhensonb (10970) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 9, 2013
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.

brokensail (10808) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
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.

adnielsen (9025) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle with MJ. Thanks! Pours a bit hazy golden yellow appearance with a white head. Somewhat grassy, woody/papery, lemon zesty, light honey aroma. Somewhat musty, citrus fruity, toasted malty, banana/honey flavor. A bit strong. Ok.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 31, 2013
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.

jtclockwork (8254) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with white head. Nose and taste of dried apple, yeast, old citrus, earth, jicama, white sugar and touch of hay. Medium body.

Dogbrick (7998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2013
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.

3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2013
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.

marcus (6438) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 9, 2013
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.

mcberko (6313) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2013
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.

5000 (6258) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Straw, mild haze, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Strong wheaty and mountain shrub sort of floral nose.   Slight star fruit and caraway.   Floral up front, very shrubby, slight earth and soil, with some rustic like spices.   A little warming, but not alcoholic.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A little prickly on the tongue.   Mealy backside, wheaty, lingering soil, earth, and shrubbiness.   Could stand to be sweeter, with brighter floral notes.   Very rustic, and interesting.
