Pour is hazed yellowish amber with a fairly tight white head. Nose doesn’t offer much barrel, has some interesting farmhouse notes and a present lemon aroma. Taste has a hint of wood to it, a touch sweeter, lemony esters and a moderate farmhouse yeast. Medium body and a strong carbonation with lingering sweetness.

laiti (5754) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar. Aroma has bretta tones, funky yeasty notes and some citrus. Flavour is somewhat tart and leathery with bretta tones, citron and grapefruit. Refreshing bretta-beer.

Steve_0 (2757) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
Pour from bottle at What the Funk!? 2014. Appearance is slightly hazy yellow-orange pour with a frothy white head and good lacing. Beautifully bretty, slightly funky, grassy, tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, light oak, and spice in the aroma. Taste is fresh orange juice, lemon peel, orange, heavy wood, brett, and papaya with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. I could chug this shit.

hopscotch (9217) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is grainy, lemony, funky and a hint spicy. Medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor delivers nice brett dryness, breadiness, moderate bitterness and light acidity. Finishes crisp, clean and fairly dry. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

HonusWagner (1423) - Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle shared by Randall I believe? Nice stuff, clean lemony/grassy character with hints of oak tannins, not some overbearingly sour monster or brett funk machine but just a good drinking Belgian Ale.

Beerathon (1217) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
I was very impressed that it delivered on qualities of all the beer style it advertises. Belgian yeast comes through, hops of the pale ale base are there, and the slight funk of the saison/farmhouse is evident. Well done.

Minderbinder (1887) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014

Jesterdeal (1923) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle shared with the boys. Aroma is pure funky bliss. Barnyard, oak barrel, slight bandaid, and some white wine. Pours straw yellow to orange with nice bubbles and a big fizzy head. Glad this was cold because a slow foam started coming out the top as soon as it was open. Potential gusher. Taste was saison bliss. Barnyard, Niagara grape, brett funk, roquefort cheese, and earthy oak. Nothing is too sweet or bitter or sour or mellow. This is the best saison I have ever had. I could drink this every day and die happy.
