4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated from notes taken on 1 Jun 2014 -- Poured from a Belgian style bail and wired bottle. A cloudy yellow pour with a very sour smelling nose. Surprisingly this beer isn’t sour at all by a nice smooth Saison with a little oak and acid showing through.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is heavily hazed deep yellow with a tight yellow head. Nose is heavy barnyard Saison yeast, a hint of minerals, light ester behind. Taste is a little bit sweeter, still a fair bit of barnyard Saison yeast, lemon and some candied sugar, faint touch of vanilla. Finish is moderately carbonated, a hint syrupy, a bit sugary.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Belgian yeast, sour fruit, wood, and booze in the aroma. Flavor is bitter and fruity, with a lightly sour finish. To me this is more like a sour ale than a saison, but it’s still very good.

09.07.2014, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Nice slightly fizzy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh, hay, oak, citrus, dried fruits, flowers, soda powder, grass, citrus peel, peach. Taste is slightly dry and fresh, hay, oak, yeast, citrus peel, soda powder, citrus, grass, dried tropical fruits, butterscotch, flowers. Medium bitterness, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Nice, but it also feels a little "flat" in so many ways...

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Proof. Dull, hazy gold pour with a bubbly white head. Super funky aroma, oaky wood, lactic acid, apricot, peaches and citrus. Lots if citrus and tartness in the front, apricot, peaches fading into oak, yeast funk, and a mild sweetness on the back. Smooth carbonation and medium body. Doesn't hit in the palate as much as it does in the aroma.

Nice gold color. Nose is brett, light red wine fruit, light yeast spice. Very round, full developed brett, some tropical fruit, great wine tannins lend a bit of tartness. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle @ PBF IX.
Pours murky lime-yellow color with a small head. Very citric crisp aroma, yeast, some herbal notes and faint wooden notes. Lemony flavor, spices, some hay and sourish apple also. Nice sourish palate but not quite a Saison. Good anyway.
