mcberko (8255) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a say golden orange with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of elderflower upfront, followed by some funky brett, and light zest. Flavour is nice and funky, with medium brett notes, followed by elderflower and a touch of citrus. Excellent incorporation of the elderflowers and the brett is nice and bright at this stage. Great stuff.

Marheb (2817) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Une saison très céréalière avec une bonne charge de maltose et d’esters en plus du bouquet de fleurs en macération. Les bretts sont délicats et légèrement fruités et contribuent à la sécheresse fine.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong brett and floral. Medium mouth with strong brett, citrus, elderflower, very nice.

mar (4985) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Nice gold pour with a white head. Nose is brett, florals, earth, funky, and sour. Great palate, clean, fresh hops, florals, tart, and bright.

runaway (68) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Pours golden honey with a medium-rocky off-white head. Aroma is initially of brett but along with the head this disappears and turns into a grassy kriek smell. Taste is like a spicy, savory sour honey with tart apple notes. Mouthfeel has good body with a long dry bitter finish. This is possibly the first sour beer I have had that I’ve liked and I found myself thinking of the flavor repeatedly in the day after I had it.

Prufrockstar (1350) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from the UDistrict Farmers Market this morning. The 1/4 oz taste was compelling enough to pick up a bottle. Pours hazy gold with white head that dissipates after a few minutes. Aroma is earthy and floral. Horse blanket, lemon, and herbal, almost medicinal. Oh yeah, more than almost medicinal. Taste: Lightly sweet, earth, citrus, pepper. The medicinal, herbal character becomes more prominent as the drink goes on. Funky, somewhat tart with a dry finish. Palate: light-medium body, average carbonation. Slick and oily. Overall: I haven’t had much from this brewery, but based on this I should definitely check them out more often. This is a nice funky saison, and I can’t think of anybody else in the state that’s really doing anything like this.
