3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Aroma is fruity, apricot, barnyard funk, tart fruits, hops, bready malt, spicy yeast. Flavour is light sweet and bitter with a dry finish. Body is medium. Ridiculously smooth and balanced, typical Lost Abbey quality, great Saison-ish Belgian Ale.

Just a flat bottle i Hope. No aroma but little hint of sweet per, some acidity but not so strong. Flavour of some pear, but very light and a little punch of green bitterness like fresshy Grass. Thin body, watery mouthfeel, not a good one for sure.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. It’s 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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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. There’s 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 it’s 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.

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

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
