Bottle. Hazy gold pour with compact white head. Aroma is pleasant, light grainyness, pepper, something grassy, fresh hay. Taste is grainy, bready, sweet flavors with a pleasantly bitter finish. Palate is clean, dry, light-medium bodied with good carb. Solid little farmhouse ale, super easy drinking and more importantly still, doesn’t suck because it’s organic.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle that was about 2 years past its drink-by. Will still rate it, because it was good and interesting that way. Cloudy blonde with a nice low head. Big grapefruit nose, barnyard funkiness which certainly came with aging. Light malts as well. Tart, citrus flavors, not much hops left at all, but barnyard and some sweet bready malts. Crisp, light body. This made me think about the whole deal with BA saisons. They taste like this fresh, but with more hops. This truly is an agable beer.

Erasmus_ro (1188) - Alabama, USA - OCT 4, 2013
750cl bottle. Starts to ooze out slowly as soon as you crack the cap. Pours a yellowy orange with a very large, white head. The glass is mostly head. Only a dab of beer at the bottom. The bottle is green glass so the aroma is a bit skunky, but fortunately that recedes fairly quickly. The rest is rather yeasty with quite a bit of pale malts, some spiciness and herbal aroma there as well. Taste is a lot of pale malts, quite spicy, lightly sweet, lightly sour. Quite a bit of herbal flavor on the finish. Light with decent carbonation. Good with food.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 22, 2013
Sampled draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Lightly hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Nose is huge on barn, lots of white pepper, wild herbs, almost funky, touch EU hops,… Taste is spices, barn, rustic, white pepper, slightly fruity with some spices, hay, tangy yeast and light citrus. Smooth, slightly oily, very easy to drink. Another beer which I tought was very good but has very low rating eh whatever.

Tide (1461) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle at bar. Thick amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, wheat, tart, herbs, hops and grass. Bitter finish with citrus and wheat. Very nice brew.

Petite blonde legere. Tres sur la cérale. Nez un peu grain cru. Debut de bouche tres rond et bien moelleux. Petite amertume et astrigeance agrume en fin de bouche

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Hazy pale gold body with a a fine white head. Banana esters in the nose with a strange green leaf quality and a lot of phenolic bubble gum. Neutral pale malt / cracker-y flavor. Floral lemon hops with a dry and tart mouthfeel. Light body, soft malt, natural carbonation is effervescent and gives the beer vibrancy and life. Zesty, musty and quenching. Bottle might be a tad old here, and it seemed to be minimally light-struck, but at a level low enough that my sense of it was quite low.

ansjelaah (1073) - Westelbeers, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2013
Bierfestival Oirschot 2011, goudkleurig, ruikt en smaakt fruitig, mout, beetje hoppig, graan. Een beetje gewoontjes.

erickok (3171) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 23, 2013
Misty golden body with stable creamy white head. Looks good. Fruity yeast of apples and peach candy, light pale malts, white bread and some sweet hops. Moderate bitterness, dry ending with a creamy mouth feel to balance that. Bit of pepper in the middle makes this somewhat interesting. Well brewed, quality ingredients. Accessible taste with a light spicy twist and creamy mouth feel. Decent brew, not exactly my kind of thing. (33cl bottle from Au Nom De La Bière)
