Thanks to Phil for sharing. Cloudy golden pour with a white head. Lemon, white grape, and apricot on the nose. Notes of pineapple, some vanilla, chives, and oak. Decently funky. Really nice fruit character to the flavor. Tons of grape, pineapple, lemon, and apricot. Notes of grass, oak, and earthy funk. Pretty citrusy on the tongue, too. Quite nice.

Gription79 (2434) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 19, 2015
Poured from a 500ml bottle, thanks to Ed. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin head. The aroma is funky,dusty, fruity, light lacto sourness, there is some over ripe fruit notes. The flavor has a great malt character then I would have expected. There is some funkiness, but it is restrained, fruity esters, light citrus notes. This is a nice beer, not what I was expecting.

Japalo (1383) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2015
Bottle@home after adding hops to "black foot". Small head straw quite haze. Intense yeasty floral fruity notes. Pearch pineapple. Pure tropical. Is this the farmhouse blend job!!? Sour dry finish. Very complex. Very pleasant sour brew.

Bottle. Aroma is citrus, dairy, herbal, bit of leather. Taste is great, nice initial grapefruit sharpness, then cuvee de ranke style weirdness, creamy, almost gueuze like sourness that lasts for a little bit then fades, bubblegum. Really nice.

jc1762 (149) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 10, 2015
Pours into a teku showing a clear honey yellow with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows a lot of round sweet malts with noticeable soft lemon zest background. Hints of pineapple also. The palate is medium carbonated and very light bodied. First impression shows a lot of nice lemon zest and a strong farmhouse background. The mid palate reveals a few more citrus flavors including a bit of grapefruit. Very light bitterness on the finish. Simple & refreshing.

Pliny_SR (35) - California, USA - FEB 5, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 Bottle @ beer tasting on 1/31/2015. Pours hazy light golden in color with minimal bubbly effervescent head. Aroma is tart citrus, yeasty funk, and hints of wood. Medium body, nice carbonation with some trub-like particulate. Taste is lemon, white grape, oak and funky yeast elements nicely balanced. Very drinkable saison and the barrel aging adds a nice dimension.

Idiosynkrasie (4640) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015
500ml bottle. Slightly hazy, golden colour with small to average, thick, frothy to cremay, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Dry, tart-ish, yeasty aroma, notes of barnyard funk, piss, sherbet, vinegar, hints of oak. Taste is minimally tart, dry, slightly citrusy hoppy, yeasty, fruity, some lemon, apple, a touch of vinegar; relatively light body, almost a bit watery. Too clean, sober, engineer’d.
