COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 389 bottles of 37,5 cl made.

Danish: En sur saison variant på 6,5% alk., brygget i Januar 2009 af Shaun E. Hill. Den har lagret i franske Pinot Noir egefade med Brettanomyces i 4 måneder, og ved tapning blev øllen blandet med Drie Fonteinen Lambic 2007 – personligt udvalgt af bryggeren. Resultatet er en unik sur øl med duft af hestedækken, kostald og jord (!), en smag med præg af eg og citrus, og en let tør, frugtig og bitter krop samt en sprød, krydret eftersmag.

English: Saison Lambic Pinot Noir is a sour saison style beer, brewed in January 2009 by Shaun Hill, and after finishing in the tank, the beer was racked into a French oak Pinot Noir barrel and aged in this with Brettanomyces for 4 months. At bottling the beer was blended with a small proportion of 2007 Drie Fonteinen draft lambic that was personally selected by our brewer. The result is a unique, distinctly sour beer with barnyard and earthy aromas, oaky and citrusy flavours, and a light, dry, fruity and bitter palate, ending on a crisp, spicy and lasting note.

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle via trade. It pours hazy golden orange with a small white head. The nose is golden delicious and granny smith apple, hay, melon, subtle orange, tangerine, spice and damp wood. The taste is soft orange, tangerine, Granny Smith apple, faint spice, hay, floral, pleasant tartness, sherbet and damp wood with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. The Drie Fonteinen lambic has definitely taken hold! Great depth of flavour, yet remains delicate and very drinkable.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. Thanks to Paul for finding this ghost bottle! The pour’s a slightly hazy light amber color with a small white head. The aroma’s very gueuze-like. Light citrus, rustic farmhouse. Light brett. Animal fur, a bit of unwashed armpit. Dry, woody attic. Hints of sweet orange and cheddar. The taste is dried cork. Lemon/lime citrus sorbet. Some dried herbs and leaves. Farmhouse yeast. Slightly dry bretty tang. Old sweaty sock. Really complex flavors. Effervescent, light gueuze profile. Slightly chalky. Overall, a really interesting beer. Thought-provoking stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Bottle at Bruce’s, London - big, big thanks to Paul. Pours hazy gold with a fine, creamy head. Great nose, lots of grass, old wet wood. Light to medium sweet flavor, some apples, light peppery spice, mellowed grassy bitterness, dank wood. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Light tangy finish, moderate grassy bitterness, light tartness, wood, faint tangy lemon. Nice stuff overall, good nuance.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2012
37,5 cl. bottle. Bottled June 2007. Rated 3.12.2012. Dusty gold w/ decent, persistent head. Moderate gushing at opening. Intensely funky, aromatic, complex and harmonious. Fruity, dry and tart w/ the edges nicely sanded off. A beautiful, perfectly mature funky ale.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2012
Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a huge lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, malt, and dusty hops. The flavor is sweet with an acidic edge and notes of dusty hops, malt, brettanomyces, leading to a tart finish.

JAXSON (528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Pours golden orange with a fluffy white head. Nose is sharp, acidic, vinous, some sulfur/egg qualities, more lambic like than anything. Actually reminds me a bit of Duck Duck Gooze on the nose in its sharp acidity. Definite citrus, perhaps some sour apple and other sour fruits. Very dry, minerally mouth, some of that sulfur but more of a pleasant, numbing, ultra dry quality. Sharp vinous element that completely refrains from any sweetness, which I adore. Numbing, vitamin and mineral, shares the dry mineral qualities with the 3 Fonteinen part of the blend. Fairly strong carbonation but with a soft body. Very good stuff.

Doodler (312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Got to try a bottle at Nørrebro Bryghus with Theis. Poured a murky orange body with fluffy white head. Nose is more funky than expected for a saison. Flavor is the same way, Vinous with barnyard brett and funk, and ending with a citrus sourness. Slightly dry and somewhat tart finish. An interesting brew for sure.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2011
bottle... dark gold, a bit or orange, very light tan head, leaves spotty thick head, thick lacing... smells outstanding, funky musky saison, oak, light red wine, a big sweet note... tastes really nice as well but I get mostly the saison despite getting three , very musky, the middle brings about all of the wine, tannic, full, oak, the finish is funky, really complex and fun to drink
