tmrmwel (1122) - Bergen, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear golden, with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is sweet fruity yeast, with apricot, bread and kandi. Medium body with a rippling, quite lively carbonation. Flavour is sour, with a good funky brett, oak and fruits. Nice finish with sour fruits.

RasmusOtt (1329) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2015
Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma is pretty brett forward with notes of fresh squeezed apples, sweeter oak, dry champagne, pear, goose berries and some grainy notes as well. The taste is very dry and woody with notes of funk, rye, pear, orange peel and weak apples. Also a slight heat to the taste here. Pretty good!

Vestergaard (617) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2015
75cl bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a big, nice, white head. Aroma has looooots of brett, bread, wheat, ripe, sweat apples, slight alcohol. Very soft overall. Taste is very pleasant sweet, prominent rye, dry dry brettish notes, pear sweetness. Very soft, easy drinking and dry beer despite being slightly alcoholic. Medium high carb and velvety body. Positive surprise.

nbouchy (13) - Thionville, FRANCE - FEB 28, 2015
Nez puissant et fruité. Agrumes, abricot, puis vanille, caramel. En bouche, attaque moelleuse, acidité légère. On retrouve les arômes du nez, citron, orange, abricot du houblon et le caramel du malt. Le vieillissement en fut amène de beaux arômes de vanille. Finale longue douce mais sèche, avec des beaux arômes épicés.

TET (1867) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2015
A dark yellow, slightly reddish beer with a big and blond head. Aroma is unique, strongly sweet fruits, fructose, some marshmellows and mandarin, hint of sourness. Taste is rich, fruitness with some darker notes, spicyness of rye, hint of sweet marshmellows. Almost full bodied, strong carbonation, not saison like lightness. Quite unique flavours, good. Sweet and fruity.

Hammy78 (802) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle my wife picked up out west. Pours a very active light golden copper, massive white head, leaving lace. Nose is very sweet and fruity, a touch of funk. Tastes sweet, a little bitter, caramel maybe some barrel character and finish that is acidic and tart. Really good.

wlajwl (4203) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Aroma is yeast, rye, spices/a hint of heat and malts/grains. The flavor is complex spices, lemons, rye, citrus, malts and a mix of slight heat/alcohol and tart in the finish.

bwa5879 (758) - Portage, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Really cloudy orange pour with an inch of fluffy white head. Strong Scent of lemon, lemongrass, clove a little cracked pepper. Soft carbonation, frothy mouthfeel, clean finish that’s slightly bitter. Taste follows the nose with strong lemon, sour rubbery yeast, clove, cracked pepper, zestuness is muted by a wheat taste. Nice saison with high ABV that’s well hidden, decent saison but not a breathtaking brüery offering.

Reimer96 (1415) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours a hazy golden orange with a frothy and fluffy white head that leaves lots of lacing up the glass. Aroma of funk, farmhouse yeast, brett, fruity esthers and light sweet malts. Taste is farmhouse yeast, funk, light brett, and Belgian yeast spiciness with a nice dry finish. Complex and smooth for a high abv beer... Too easy to drink.
