@ Party Source / Bellvue KY - Cloudy bright copper with a head that drops to the rim, a few dots of lace. Taste is malt that is quickly obliterated by a tart, sour, acidic citrus, and a hint of pepper and ginger that carries to the finish. It is different (perhaps that is the Wallonian?), but not quite as drinkable as traditional brews, or even traditional lambics and guezes. It is its own breed - drinkable, but not one I prefer.

kapusil (600) - HUNGARY - DEC 22, 2013
0.75l bottle. Clear amber body, off-white head. The aroma is like the air of a wine cellar with some champagne, apple and orange peel. Taste of toast and cherry. The texture is silky. Interesting beer, I like it.

Abijen (1481) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2013
Pours an orange slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells spices and herbs and sour. Tastes sour, metal and weird. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

Bosbouw (1254) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2013
Iets troebele oranjegele kleur met een aardige kraag. Ruikt zoetzuur. Smaakt dun en waterig. Iets zurig. Verder weinig bijzonders

Urzekajace piwo, praktycznie zdumialo mnie. Zaczne od wygladu i to butelki, harakterystyczna szampanowa butelka z cienka szyjka bardzo glebokim wybrzuszeniem na kciuk i kolor taki brazowawo zielonkawy. Piana moze niezbyt obfita i niezbyt trwala ale kolor to wspaniale metne pomaranczowe piwo z refleksami rozowymi. Smak kwaskowaty, troche kakao, przypraw, jakby pieprz, aromat kwaskowy greffrutow rozowych i pelna paleta slodowo kwaskowa. Wytrawny koncowka zdecydowanie wytrawna. Saison rewelacyjny, polecam

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-apricot color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart, chalky, citric, funky and bready. The flavor was very tart and sour, a bit dry and had notes of chalk, yeast and lemon. Medium length dry, tart and sour finish with lingering yeast, chalk and lemon. Medium body. Meh.

Jow (2158) - New York, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Tap at gingerman. Pours orange with very fruity nose. Tastes of green apples, ginger, earth, anise, wet cardboard, and funky. Kinda flat on palate. Drying and odd finish. Overall not really saison like.
