BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle @ Brouwer’s Cafe! 10 karat pour with a fluffy white cotton head that left significant rings in the glass after every sip. Nose is fruity, earthy, and only mildly funky with a hint of pepper. Flavor shows loads of grape, honey, caramel, toffee, and spice. Definitely not the saison it was born to be but not offensive in any way. Would have expected something different from the Brett but this was still a treat.

50belair (2170) - Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Sour milk and musty feet aromas. Mild citrus, hay, and brett notes. Below average mouthfeel and body. I think this bad boy is past the point of no return...

Huhzubendah (2415) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle shared by GRG1313 at our sour and wild ales tasting on April 14, 2012. Thanks Richard. The beer is yellow and fairly hazy with a small white head. The aroma is enticing, with scents of funk, citrus, oak, and light spice. A very tasty beer. A touch of sweetness is balanced by a subtle tartness in the finish. Light to medium in body. A very interesting beer. It’s always fun to sample rare and retired beers like these. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-23-2012

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Found on the shelves at Bottleworks. Pours a nice clear yellow and very lively. three fingers head that sticks around. Smell is sweet hay and fruity funk. More sweet than sour. Taste is funky, barnyard up front, falls into fruity middle and a dry, chalky finish. Good and refreshing. It’s a pretty good saison, but not sure I would want it again. It’s actually pretty impressive how unremarkable it is.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Funky yeasty aroma with some light fruity sweetness. The flavor has light funky yeast and fruity/honey sweetness, as well as a little bit of oxidation. seemed a bit past its prime.

vtafro (2998) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottle. Hazy golden pour with white head. Brett aged funk aroma. Flavor is sweet floral hop with cheese and honey oxidation tones.

cheap (3968) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Clear yellow with a tad of orange. Mild yeasty aroma. Mildly bitter initial impressions. An easy drink. Quite unexpectedly beery. Perhaps some farm in there. Maybe a little oxidation, even tho it comes across rather refined. Mild to medium bite on the finish. Big thanks to Kevin for bringing this rare brew!

brokensail (10642) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Pours gold in color with a big white head. A very intense pineapple aroma to this as well as some more subtle notes of citrus and tropical fruit. There is some bready malt, a touch of yeast, and a mild straw note. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of bread, sweet fruits (especially pineapple), and some citrus. Just a hint of yeast and Brett funk. Medium in body and carbonation.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 5, 2012
Bottle pour, complements of Matt from Brouwers. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Smells earthy, dusty, bready. Tastes like soured bread with a hint of citrus, and some spice. Has a sort of spiky sour/wood as it warms. Interesting, but not a favorite.
