Bottle from... somewhere. Bought this over the summer and let it sit. Now Iím drinking it. Pours hazy golden orange, minimal white foam, decent amount of white foam head that laces down to just a frosting on top with some continued bubbling activity thereafter. Aromas are mostly mild funk mixed with some hints of peach pulp/orange zest and mild spice in there. Taste is really nice and smooth. Clean, early sweet funk, followed by middle pepperyness, followed by a funky tangy finish. Like many of the other raters I agree it is all a bit understated, but there is a balance here that does a lot for me. The late and lasting fromage quality is endearing as well. Coats the inner cheeks and tongue nicely. This is a good beer. Not knock-your-socks off or anything, and yes, Iím sure it is overpriced, but still, gotta appreciate the quality.

keanex (1432) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottled May 24, 2012.
Appearance: The body is a light amber/orange with almost no head even directly after the pour and there is no carbonation in the body.
Aroma: Slightly funky, with sweet orange and light tart.
Taste: The aroma matches the flavor very well, the brett is light on this with sweet citrus being the main flavor, very light tart, and a slightly spicy finish. This is very mild for a Brett beer.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: This is a very mild Brett beer and I think thatís why this is getting such low overall ratings, that and the price is a bit high. This is a solid beer, but for the price I can buy a 4 pack of Rayon Vert which is much better.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Attractive deep golden pour. Nose is floral, light pear fruits, subtle phenolic spices very nice but delicate aroma. Flavor is sweet fruity pears, light spices, some mustiness, medium light body. Medium light bitterness. Light carbonation. Finishes medium sweet. This had no off flavors but really quite boring.

gEUS (1041) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2012
bottle sampled at my California motorhome tour. Bought at the source... Pours golden clear with a tiny to no head. Aroma of hay, malt and a tiny hint of banana. Medium body with steady mouthfeel all the way from beginning to end, sweet honey like malt flavours. Not bad.

Pours hazy golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of sweet pear, sweet citrus, melon and other tropical fruits. Brett and coriander as well. Taste is weak brett, hay, sweet citrus, pear, mellow peach and sweeter belgian stuff (some spices) . A bit messy ..

Should call this mo betta needs more bretta. Really subtle brett characteristics and the beer tastes like a traditional saison. Tastes nice and fruity and spicy but really minimal funk or tartness.

SamP01 (559) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2012
12.7 oz.bottle. Pours a golden amber with a small short lived white head. Aroma of biscuit malt, sour ripe white grapes, fruity and some Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet tart and sour fruity flavors, slightly champagne like, Belgian yeast. Palate is a medium body, crisp nicely balanced sweet and tart on the tongue, with moderate carbonation. Finish is a combination of sweet biscuit malt, wild Belgian yeast, with some ripe sour and tart fruitiness of apples and peaches. Almost reminds me of trippel. Overall has a nice flavor and nicely balanced. A well crafted and flavorful brew. Nicely done.

Bottle shared amongst friends. Compared to the New Belgium take on this beer Iíd have to say that Lost Abbey completely trumps them. Not super sour or funky but just the right balance. The NB version was like rancid old milk.

jgb9348 (4709) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Super hazy golden coloured body with a bit of an orange and slight amber glow and a thin, one centimetre tall white head. Aroma of yeast, coriander seed, corn, curacao and a bit of light caster sugar. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast and hay/grassy flavours with a lot of effervescence at first then fading to an almost creamy, grassy and herbal flavour and a bit of nice sweet complexity on the back end. Aftertaste has some corn tastes, a bit of curacao and full oranges, some lemons, a bunch of yeast and a little coriander seed freshness. Overall, a decent beer bordering more on a biere de garde more than anything else, but not amazing, and not as good as I was even expecting. I sampled this 37.5 cL split bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-July-2012 for US$8.25 sampled at home in Washington on 19-October-2012, with this bottle made on 24-May (perhaps, itís tough to read).

this one actualyl tasted like a saison with some brett, light brett to it. Very thick and rich malty saison though
