Bottle pours cloudy orange yellow with a thick white head. Aromas are sweet fruit, funky yeast, and wood. Tastes are similar. Not getting any pepper as I would have suspected. Overall very good but overpriced.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, touch of yeasty notes into nice spice, pepper into some pear, peach, apricot, touch of oak as well. Taste was a mix of oak, white wine, some orange into some peach, apricot, pear into yeast, spice, peppery notes, finishing slightly dry, slightly sweet. Nice.

AirForceHops (3955) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2015
750 bottle hand carried home from the brewery by my buddy Adrien. Hazy orange gold color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is heavy on the white wine, with nice notes of dried apricots. The flavor is extremely well integrated. Mild hay, barnyard, again dried apricots, nice light lingering white wine hints, weak Brett hints. Very nice.

AdamJackson (3261) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Slight cloudiness from the yeast, light golden yellow 2 finger tight creamy head. The nose is great. Tart, saison very yeasty, grape skins and very wheat forward. smells a little tart. Pretty yeast, almost no tartness but there is brett funk. some sulfur and faint rotten model tastes but the creaminess and apricot forward funkiness is really nice. I don’t get a lot of wine or oak.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Ariel. Hazy yellow-golden with a nice white head. Pleasant funky aroma with apricots, white wine, oak and light spiciness. Funky flavor, sweaty, sweetish-sourish, a bit vinous, with oak, lovely fruitiness (lots of apricot), a light alcohol hint and a dry finish. Medium-bodied. Great stuff.

750ml bottle, big thanks to voodoofish65usf for sharing. Golden orange color. White particles in the body. Thin off-white head, some short ropes of lace. Awesome apricot, mildly peppery nose. Moderate sweet taste, light tart. Light spicy herbalness, good pepper and belgian yeast profile. Pretty nice stuff. Pepper seems to balance out the sweetness. Good balanced stuff.
