Thanks to Armin for sharing - turbid gold, fizzy but fairly well sustained head - light mineral in the nose at first, floral notes, very light pineapple Brett notes, very light cobweb/dustiness - full carbon in the mouth - dry, flinty, moderate mineral - dusty, earthy yeast - mild funkiness - light lemon and sage - quite good - note quite as good as the table beer, but still very nice.

vtafro (5545) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle. Hazy golden pour with white head. Spices, sweet berry fruit aroma tones and a hint if citrus. Saison? Nice clean crisp mouthfeel, with a spiced and hopped beer. Nice.

badlizard (5534) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle. This one exceeded my expectations. Clear medium yellow with a nice luster and a fizzy white head. Crisp banana, pear, apple, and Brett fruitiness to the aroma and taste with a tart sweet bread finish and nice dry crispness to the otherwise bright and lively palate. Oh yeah, it’s good.

RichTheVillan (5473) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy straw yellow pour with tight white foam head, funky zesty citrus aroma, sour farmyard funk in the taste with a nice zesty citrus background, slightly metallic must be the brett, some spicy herb action.

Sampled on 2/14/2012 at Beer Revolution. This saison pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, cereal and yeasty. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, cereal and yeasty. The hops are herbal and spicy. Lively carbonation. Nice balance. A touch dry and funky, with some yeastiness. Not sure if the corn and rice go well with the brett. It’s a weird combination and I’m not sure if it works well. Will need to do some more research. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is cleanand smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

reebtogi (5192) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
750ml capped and waxed bottle with some really nice artwork pours a cloudy golden color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and grass with some yeast and funk. Taste is a citrus and herbal hoppy bitterness with some grainy malty sweetness and a funky dry yeasty finish. Generous carbonation and light body. Certainly this is a complex and interesting brew, but does not agree well with my tastes.

Not often I’m a bit fan of beers with corn and/or rice, but this one is pretty darn nice. Pours hazy dully yellow with a good sized snow white head. The aroma is very floral and buggy with pale malt, earth, dried fruit, pepper and smooth cream - really nice. Medium smooth body with lots of carbonation, but is very frothy and gentle and doesn’t interfere with the flavor at all. The flavor starts with bugginess, herbs, dried peaches, soft spices and grassiness. The finish has a mineral presence that works well with the other flavors and has a very rustic and earthy aspect. Great sessionable beer, but the cost is prohibitive of realistically having this as a session ale.

Pours light gold into a tulip. Bright white head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Sourdough and funk aromas. Dry with sweet caramel and sourdough upfront turning to marshmallow and band-aids before the lasting bitter earth finish.
