2014 bottle, this exploded out of the bottle, giving a frothy white head, nice saison aroma, with an extra bitter finish from the dry hopping. There is quite a sweet alcohol layer in there as well.

acearl (448) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2015
2013 vintage. Not sure if it is aged or just sat around for 2 extra years. Hazy brown apricot hue with thick cream lasting white head. Smells of a sugary yeast. A bit sweet, medium texture a bit more hoppy than the non dry hopped version but nothing overwhelming bread/yeast prevails. Pretty good.

guzgorog (580) - FRANCE - AUG 19, 2015
Cuvée 2014 bue en 2015. Blonde légèrement orangée, trouble, haute mousse blanche très persistante. Nez lévuré typique de la saison et houblons herbeux. Bouche assez amère, levure, houblon côté floral et herbeux, quelques esthers. Très bonne carbo, corps aérien, très bonne longeur. Superbe saison, je regrette de ne pas en avoir une autre sous la main ...

llucmaduell (106) - barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2015
A big surprise. I liked beer. Fresh, powerful, with a point of imbalance thank you very much. Maybe a little too much gas, but also a persistent foam amazing. A bitter taste at the end of the mouth, persistent and very nice. A beer for summer and retain repeat.

lownote (427) - USA - AUG 16, 2015
Infected? At jester king. Smells like a complex saison with tart. Really dry. What a theme. Slightly tart. A little spicy. I could drink a bunch of this but it’s not mind blowing. Pours a bit cloudy with lots of head.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5965) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with an enormous fomay white head that left excellent lacing. The aorma was drysih, a bit chalky, perfumey hops and a bit of citrus. The flavor was dry, bitter, perfumey, chalky, musty and had a touch of black pepper. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Idiosynkrasie (5543) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2015 375ml bottle [a fugitive from the unknown realm of Bartlebierean beer dungeons, thank you very much!]. Clear (with later pouring cloudy) golden colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy and fruity yeasty aroma, green apple, lemon, pear and hints of green fruit parings stick out of a peach basis, spicy yeasty notes come along, hints of peppercress, pollen, a floral as well as a funky touch - all flavours appear in a mild condition and perfectly integrated. Taste is fresh and refreshing, slightly dry, slightly tart, slightly sweet, slightly spicy, the above mentioned flavours appear again with interchanging emphases in vibrating course until the finish takes a distinct peppery and slightly grassy, bitter hoppy direction. Super soft palate, soft but effectual carbonation. I would have a second one not only under torture.
