Aroma is fruit/oak barrel, brett and malts. The flavor is fruit, vinous/liquor notes, brett, malts and a sour/mildly sweet finish.

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.

cpetrone84 (1661) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
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.

annunz123 (921) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 13, 2014
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...

rbrazell (1699) - Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2014
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.

wchesser (1396) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2014
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.

RasmusOtt (1489) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2014
Pours hazy bright yellow with a white head. Aroma has nice and wild brett notes, citrusy fruits, peach, lime, funky and with notes of dry wood. Also some mandarin and a nice tartness. Taste is quite tart and has nice notes of citrusy fruits, delicious funky brett, straw, lemon peel, lime, hops, oak and goose berries. Very nice saison indeed!
