poisoneddwarf (2183) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - SEP 20, 2013
12.7 oz corked and caged bottle. Aroma is strong in dusty brett, a little funk and lemon rind, but mostly dust. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a giant (even with a slow pour) white head with excellent retention; leaves some sudsy lacework. Taste is crisp and clean, mostly sweet and finishing dry with a lingering unobtrusive sweetness; some very light bitterness comes out after it warms a bit. Highly carbonated, fairly light body. Good beer, not very complex or overpowering like a lot of these brett-infused beers. Simple, clean and elegant.

tricksta_p (2920) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
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.

Fashawn (570) - ITALY - MAR 13, 2016
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.

GenDV138 (5083) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2016
12.7 oz corked and caged bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. 2013 vintage at 6.66% ABV. Hazy bright golden orange with half a finger of off-white head. Aromas of Brett and funk, tropical and stone fruit, herbs. Tastes of earthy funk, Brett, light tropical and stone fruit, herbs. Medium-light body with a very dry finish. Pretty nice.

ciocanelu (838) - 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. 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.

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. 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

King_Alex_II (1025) - 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 (2080) - 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.
