Doofgoblin (475) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Not that sour. Aroma is huge with lots of lemon, citrus and a little bit of funk. It almost smells sour. Pours a cloudy golden. Taste is spicy with notes of lemon, citrus and bitterness. Plenty of carbonation round off the mouth feel. A really tasty brew but not the sourness I expected. Maybe cellar it? Overall, a spicy brew with tons of great aroma.

ciocanelu (591) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 18, 2015
Clear golden color with a small off-white head fading away. Aroma has a lot of farmhouse funk, really earthy. Taste is quite simple compared to the aroma. Itís somehow earthy, with strong olive notes but not much else. Slightly bitter on the aftertaste but not really dry. Not bad but the beer lacks some flavors and complexity. Also the carbonation is almost missing.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a very cloudy, pale golden orange color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a two finger pillowy white head that sticks around forever. Really good retention only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Looks to be over carbonated. Prominent musty brett aroma with farmhouse yeast, grass, straw and light fruit. Very earthy and funky with wild bugs overpowering almost everything else. Thereís a touch of floral hops and light fruit but the brett dominates. Medium body and very over carbonated taking away from the mouthfeel and flavor. Lots of dry, musty funk with the brett overpowering almost everything enjoyable about the base beer. Nice to have a little of this complimenting the farmhouse yeast but itís way too strong for my liking. Decent amount of bread/yeast flavor underneath along with grass, straw, faint peppery spice and light fruit. Once the palate adjusts to strong brett presence, the yeast, spice, apple, pear and alcohol flavors come out. Not a bad beer but overcarbed and a bit one dimensional.

Aroma: Sour, yeast, floral and light citrus. Palate: Light body. Flavor: Sour, bitter, Finishes with a long, mild bitterness on the back of the tongue. Comment: Bland, a bit simple at this point.

2013 bottle - did I store too long? nice aroma; hazy orange pour. Taste was mild and really not pleasing; not nasty just not something I want to drink. Grassy funk; drying toward end some bitterness and I got a peppery spice also. meh

King_Alex_II (916) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Cloudy orange color with foam layer. The smell is malty sourish with a milky touch (on second smell: ahoi brause). The taste is super mild with a silky mouth feeling, wrong yeast notes and spicy peppery parts. The aftertaste is calm and mild. My problem with this beer is, that this is too mild and it looses a lot of intensity. This beer might be edgy, but is cut back to much. I am a bit disappointed.

SinH4 (1595) - Garching, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2015
Vintage 2013. Pops hugely when opening, hazy orange color with huge white head. Aroma is fresh, bretty, grapes, lemony. Taste is lemony, a bit biscuity malts, lemon zests, spicy yeasts. Refreshing and well-balanced. I like it, feels like a nice Saison.

mateuszk (1355) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle. Fruity aroma with spices, yeast funkiness and tropical fruits. In taste similar, with more grapes in flavour. Low body, dry and crisp with low bitterness and bretts in the finish. Easy drinkable, nice.

zacgillbanks (3755) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A hazy golden coloured beer that pours with a huge rocky white head. It has a spicy lemon and vanilla flavour with gentle barnyard and biscuit notes followed by a zesty herbal and citrus finish. Excellent!

maekchu (3041) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Sharp, almost smoky, sort of funk, burnt rubber. Medium gold straw color. Thin fruity initial, light Brett, harsh funky fruitiness in mid palate, and then a drop off in flavors and it flattens. Interesting but kind of disappointing for what should be a special brew. Flavors thin out too quickly and the harsh, phenolic notes detract in a beer that is this light bodied.

KyotoLefty (8369) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Funky brett nose, a bit lactic, peaches,grapefruit. Orange-gold, hazy, with lace. Very funky flavor, harsh, hay, thinner. Very disappointing flavor.
