hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle... Pours murky and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is both funky and fruity - barnyard and lemon peel. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is sweet and tangy - nearly tart – with low bitterness. Short, tangy, sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2014
500ml bottle. Lively aroma of citrus and tropical fruit, full of yeast spice and mild funk, with notes of lime, melon, faint oak, licorice, a bit of tartness and phenols along with a mild floral sweetness in the background. Hazy light golden in color, plenty of opaque sediment in the bottle, (I chose to leave the vast majority of it there) and a very thin, fading white head. Flavor profile is lightly tart, fruity, citric, floral, lightly honeyish, spicy, peppery, faintly woody, funky and herbal, finishing dry and lightly bitter. Palate is active with carbonation and very quenching, particularly for a beer of this style and dangerously drinkable for a beer of its strength. Body is medium-full. Very nice.

500 ml bottle purchased from Blackwell’s. Pours a hazy light straw color with a thin white lasting head. Aroma is perfect saison complexity: hay, yeast, funk and lemon citrus. Flavor is tart lemon citrus, wheat and grass notes, Belgian yeast. A solid, delicious representative example of the saison style.

Bottle at home. Pours hazy yellow with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy Brettanomyces, earthy and barnyard with lemon notes, crisp pale malt, earthy and spicy hops with pear and papaya esters. Flavor is fruity esters, light malt, moderate earthy Brettanomyces, medium hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Aubrey (3489) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Really pleasant beer. Hides the big alcohol well. Lots of juicy fruit (lemon, peach and pineapple) notes with spicy esters of white pepper. Bright and lively with a nice twang near the finish. Effervescent and dry. I like it more and more with every sip.

McNeillR (1758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Very odd palest pink to eggshell grey with a thin ringed head. Full on peachy funk, watery sweet tropical juice overall. Rich tangy peach and peeled citrus. Tangy Oak chewy light wood thread. Finishes dry and tinselly. Very refreshing for the ABV

Bottle, Fancy Al Fresco Tasting

Bottle, thanks J-Dawg. Hazy pale yellow with white head. Peppery lemon aroma. Similar taste, peppery lemon. Crisp and dry. Delish.
