Bottle shared by Mortlach in Rome-Italy, many thanks. Amber pour, gush as it was open. Funky unpleasant notes of infection. Mouth: impossible to drink. Infection all the way. Bummer!

Mortlach (1775) - Rome, ITALY - APR 17, 2016
330ml bottle shared with ippopotamo36 and luttonm. Pours amber, cloudy, big off-white foam. Gushing. Aroma is terrible, dirty water, sewer, bubblegum. Flavour... I don’t know what to write because I only had a sip. Infected.

impuritylaw (57) - Freibierg, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2016
330ml bottle shared by Thomas @Bier mit Stil 2: Saison, Bierhandlung. Aroma in the beginning is kind of dirty maybe like rotten fruit, then the ugly curtain raises and there is wheat, yeast and sour green apples together with some sourness. Taste is sour green apples with slight spices, that finishes dry and slightly bitter. Edgy and rough but good.

Clear golden with a small white head, some lacing. Aroma of soy sauce, apple and paper. Taste of cardboard, cider with a bitter finish
Ok, but past its prime

Gription79 (2782) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Poured from a 1995 750 ml bottle. This is very old and oxidized. Caramel notes, funky, citrusy. Past its prime.

vincentvega72 (286) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
Oranjekleurig bier met witte schuimkraag die snel wegebt. Zeer fruitig aroma. Geuren en smaken van perzik, abrikoos, nectarine, gele pruimen. Niet slecht maar niet 100 % mijn ding.

kch0206 (1) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2016 does not count
Bottle (33cl) bought at Kuva Dranken in Kinrooi, Belgium. Great aroma- bready, very yeasty, spicy but not exaggerated. Taste is smooth, silky. Just yummy. Would go very well with cheese (I think...).

Dark orange, low but remaining foam. Plum and dried apricot aroma. At first some earth taste, but then mostly dried fruit. Medium body, balanced bitterness.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color with a two finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Musty farmhouse aroma with some earthy funk, grassy hops, pale malt and light fruit. Strong Saison yeast presence along with piney hops, grass and straw followed by caramel malt, toffee, biscuit and fruit juice. On the light end of medium bodied with soft carbonation and a prominent funky farmhouse yeast flavor that lingers over earthy hops, light fruit and malt backbone into a slightly sweet finish. Very earthy and funky with dry brett, Saison yeast and grassy hop notes followed by hints of toffee, bread and biscuit. Light fruit sweetness in the finish with some grape, apple and pear. Well balanced and easy to drink but nothing out of the ordinary.
