Poured from a 750ml bottle. Pours a murky golden haze with a two finger of head. Smells of apricots. Loads of carbonation...maybe a little too much bottle fermentation? Tastes of apricots, bread and some citrus.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with incrdeible carbonation and a head that keeps growing,. The head almost never leaves. I learned my lesson following the initial pour. Nose is funky, barnyard. Somewhat more viscous than other saisons and the yeast is all over the place. Spiced bread tones and not overly dry, but more full-bodied. This was nice, not great, and fairly expensive for what it was.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - AUG 10, 2009
cloudy copper, huge rocky offwhite head. super yeasty aroma, backed up by citrus, figs, biscuit, and a bit of pine. bright but deep aroma, a hint of metal. flavor is also complex, with a nice balance of alcohol, sour dark fruit and a sweet cookie-like flavor, with a bittersweet finish thatís just a bit flat. sticky and somewhat overcarbonated. overall this is very good, itís sweet but refreshing.

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!

Pours hazy hazy apricot orange, creamy beige head. A legitimately wild aroma. Slightly moldy wet autumn leaves. Not since Saison de Pipaix have I found one that I thought smelled like it was made in a barn. Not strictly offensive but it manages to pique my curiosity to better learn all the different kinds of infections out there. Medium bodied, quite creamy texture. More on the sweet side, like jelly beans and meringue. I would prefer it to be less strong so it might be more drinkable. But really, itís quite interesting, although I canít say itís really hitting the spot for me.

garza (568) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - JUN 21, 2011
Pours orange cloudy look with average white head. Aroma of fermented fruits, hint of roses, fresh herbs, but with hints of some acid vinegar too. Lightly sour in the taste, citric notes. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, some light sour and citric after taste.

Delicious. A mild yet flavorful saison, good maltiness, not Bretty, effervescent. Tastes a bit like a tripel, a touch too much heat. Tasty and refreshing bite on the tip of the tongue.

One of the better Saisons Iíve ever had. Big alcohol, but all hidden. A very tart citrus saison, not as savory/salty as others. Good spices, present funk/sour. Very full flavor, not watery or thin at all. Although it had good carbonation, it was not a light bubbly beer, this was a heavier, although relatively dry Saison. Delectable to drink, wish I had more.
