750ml brown bottle. Pours yellow, hazy. Fat white head, lots of lacing. Nose has grain, hay and a bit of funk. Taste has grains, hay, tangy lemon. Citrusy finish with brett. Overall a decent bright tasting saison with some brett touches.

Yellow golden pour, lots of white straw head overflowing my glass. Wonderful aroma of melons, lemon, slight sour, funk, and honey. Taste - sweet up front, honey, mid way the funk comes through, finishes semi bitter. A very refreshing saison with tons of flavour, love it!

ajnepple (1689) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2014
750 ml bottle from the Argonaut shared. Lightly tart and refreshing saison with a nice aroma and a medium body. Not as bretty and tart as I was hoping for.

reebtogi (3842) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
750ml capped bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is yeasty and fruity (like white wine and lemon). Taste is a lemon sourness with a fruity and grainy malt sweetness with a dry yeasty finish. Medium bodied with generous carbonation. Quite a nicely balanced saison not being too overly sour. I enjoyed sampling this one.

DanielBrown (3629) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle at Craven Arms, Birmingham. Another good Saison from Bruery. Thin, tart brew. Musty, musky flavours. Proficient and drinkable.

hockeybeerguy (917) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Reviewed from notes. She pours a somewhat hazy orange/brown and leaves the same colored body with a one finger white fomy head that quickly dies and barely leaves any lacing. The smell has a rustic yet kinda earthy sort of apple/pear kinda coming through in a wine-like sort of way. The taste has some semi-sweet qualities yet has a slight degree of bitterness (that same wine-like sort of taste). It has a wine-like aftertaste, and tries to have a bitter dry finish but actually there isn’t much there. On the palate, she sits pretty light, has a nice sessionable quality to it but has a carbonated feel like wine. Overall, is this beer or is this wine? I’m not really fond of this at all, as its not really a saison its more like wine.

pours hazy golden with a nice white cap, some retention and lacing. spicy cereals, some lemons and lemon zest, fruity and spicy, grass, slight dustiness - early stage bretts, bit of booze, moderate farmhouse character - in its modern times meaning. lively carbonation, light body, grassy-herbal-spicy-citrusy finish. nicely crafted saison.

Bottle (750 ml). Thanks Randall! Clear yellow/golden with a medium white head and some lacing. Aroma is herbal with Belgian yeast, spices, candi sugar and light sweetness notes. Taste is moderately sweet with yeast, spices and herbal/grassy notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Grassy/spicy finish. I didn’t get any brett in that one. Decent Saison, more on the traditonnal side.

mathieuc (999) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks a lot! Pours a nice golden with a medium white head that leaves some nice lacing patterns. Nose is spicy and fruity, black pepper for the most part. Taste is herbal and fresh but also sweet. It didn’t feel underattenuated per se but the sweetness was a bit unsettling. A nice classic saison.

Minderbinder (1592) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle 750ml. Pours golden with high off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of spices, herbs, honey, perfume. Taste is of spices, belgian-style yeast, honey, sweetness, candi, perfume. Palate: Medium body. Low-med carbonation. Overall: Pretty good, but somewhat perfumy. Also, our bottle was very low on brett features (I did’nt really dig any of it, even when trying to (know what i mean...)). Wonder what kind of bretts this is, or if our bottle was too young or something.
