Braudog (5975) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Caged/corked. Very light colored beer, bright and golden. The aroma is vaguely citrusy and yeasty. This drinks with a subtle finesse thatís hard to find ... easy to drink for even the most persnickety drinker, yet with a complex and enticing balance of spice, fruit, yeast ... Very well done.

Lightly hazy yellow. Aroma is lighly funky, barnyard, yeasty. Nice flavor, definite barnyard flavors, almost like manure. In a good way. Good beer. Nice to have this on tap at Lost Abbey.

Jethro6191 (487) - Indiana, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Pours a clear pale gold with a creamy white head. Floral, hay, and barnyard notes. Light body with a medium level of carbonation. Nice light ale that is perfect on a hot summer day.

On tap at Toronado SF. Clear gold with a thin white head. Nice Belgian yeast nose with sweet malt, citrus and herbs. Flavor starts with sweet malt, then moves to herbs and citrus before a finish that is a bit sweet, yet refreshing.

armando629 (2442) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 31, 2010
0,75 l bottle from CrackedKettle, courtesy of Balazs, thanks
Hazy amber-orange colored one with a pillowy and creamy off white head that diminshes slowly to small laces on the surface.. Moderated fruity aroma of peach and honey, light fine herbal hops, mild tart character. Oily density with a light malt based flavor. Mellifluous fruity taste with grape and floral-herbal hops. Sophisticated, hoppy aftertate.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle from CrackedKettle. Poured hazy, honey yellow color and an off-white lacing head. Peach, honey, hoppy aroma, very summerish with the sour, almost tarty notes. Medium dense body with low carbonation. Enjoyed it much!

asedzie (657) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with moderate white head. Lots of lacing. Bright aroma of citrus hops, spice, mild wet hay, mown grass, just a little bit of a fruity sour note and earthy mildewed leaves. Syrup-like sweetness and some alcohol dominates in the flavor, some barnyard funk and around the periphery, finishes with peppery bitterness and lightly astringent alcohol. Lots of interesting hop flavors, coupled with the brett and yeast flavors make this beer a bit of a challenge something to reflect on.

popery (1601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
This is a very good saison and, with some time, might be a great one. For now, there isnít quite enough brett character and itís a bit sweet. The aroma is strong and bright with good barnyard brett notes. There are also notes of citrus, Belgian earth and fresh grains. American hop citrus is interesting in a saison, but itís also a bit too hop bitter, in my opinion. Mouthfeel is just a tad heavy, but itís still easy to drink. Of course, it will be interesting to see how it develops.
