Orange yellow pour foamy white head. Aroma of brine, apples, acetic acid. Very sweet taste malt bomb. bretta and rye are present but slight. Sticky and spicy dry on palate. More like a trippel than a saison. alcohol on the end.

TimE (3261) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 28, 2014
Deep golden color. Big bretty hoppy, with rye in the background. The mouth really opens up with fairly aggressive hoppiness, Brett and rye. Not. Very authentic Saison (def American) but still very nice. Not too tart. Funky Brett finish with moderate hoppiness thought not much bitterness. Good.

kerenmk (2421) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer and Beyond shop. Thanks yoav. Cloudy amber with white head. Bretty, fruity, apple, some toffee and pepper aroma, mildly sour but very drinkable - a little alcoholic too. Full body, slightly alcoholic finish. Very good.

Pours a hazy amber with a thick head. Nice Bret aroma with a tangy spice taste to match. Hints of rye and clove with a nice sparkly mouth feel.

BiddleBrau (948) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2014
From Paul. Hazy gold with white head. Musty nose. Horsey musty flavor, crisp and finishes clean. Rye isn’t my style but this works.

750 ml bottle. Pours a murky amber with huge head. Aromas of toasted malts, stoned fruit, and light banana. Flavors of orange marmalade, cloves,, white pepper, light resin and fruity bubblegum. Sharp and refreshing.

John25 (562) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours bright orangey gold. The aroma is brett funk with a little citrus in the background. The taste follows suit with tangerine. The mouthfeel is the best part. A little spritzy, prickly but sweet and sticky too. High carb that fades fast to a sticky resin feel. Really great brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma is saison yeast and citrus with a hint of mint. Taste follows suit but adds some apple and refocuses on the citrus. Quick dry finish. Very good.
