Bottle shared by DMac at Kaneís. Pours yellow gold with white head. Nose is great - lots of lemon zest, light breads, saison yeast and white wine. Some oak. Taste is same but more muted. Body is very delicate - like a flower.

mcberko (5361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
500mL bottle, sent from Steve_0 (thanks a lot, Steve), pours a cloudy blonde with a tiny white head. Nose brings out considerable funk, with lots of cereal grains, oak, and white wine - exquisite aromatics. Flavour is similar, revealing notes of white wine and oak upfront, followed by a very dry grainy and funky secondary taste which linger. There is even a very, very subtle tartness on the finish from the dry white wine. Bone dry, lightly funky, vinous, and oaky. A most excellent saison.

illidurit (2051) - Petaluma, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle courtesy jtclockwork. Thanks! Hazy light-gold pour with a white head. Super awesome Brett jumps out of the glass, tons of funky fruit wafting around. Flavor has got heavy guava notes along with pineapple and clementine. Yogurt acidity and supple brett. Absolutely delicious.

Thanks to jrob21 for sharing this highly sought after beer. Pours a hazy pale peach. Slight grain and citrus scent. Would be a solid 4.0 beer, but it is touch flat for my liking. Bottle - Tasted at Bottle Share

500ml bottle. Thanks Dan! Pours a clear, yellow-amber color with a white head that fades to bubbles around the edges of the glass. Aroma is yeasty, earthy, some oak, some white wine. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, tart, fruity, wine, oak, some Bretty funk, with a nice, tart, funky finish. Very nice.

50cl (green wax), at 5.2%Vol, new exclusive American brew Anno 2013, thx to Secret Santa!, complex sour brew, floral/fruity and slightly sour/vinous, easy to drink, balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, good brew, yet expensive!

AirForceHops (2711) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2014
500 ml bottle thanks to Reggie Dunlap. The brew poured hazy yellow with some ectoplasm. Very chucky yeasty clumps that even on a slow chanted pour, still find the way into my snifter. Nose is a nice white grape, oak and lemons. Flavor is really great, lemons, hay, grass, some light vinous character, some oak, and mild tartness. Light body with medium-to-soft carbonation. Dry texture with some citrus rind. Some clumps and marmalade had to be scooped out of my snifter but the flavor wasnít compromised. Really nice saison.

Bottle at RBWG 2014. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice light tartness with funkness and a bit of light bread backing. Flavor is more mild with an earthy grain and funk with just a hint of tartness and dry wine.

Big thanks to Reggie for this beaut! OK, so it says its a saison on this site but Iíll tell you, hah hah, from the start, including the smell indicates its some sort of mild wild or mild sour beer. The big RD comes thru with a great mild tart beer just a little more than rodenbach, Iím liking this. If you closed your eyes you would expect a somewhat darker brew. Yes, pleasant, hypnotizing cloudy lemonade look and tart fun feel to this fun stuff. So much fun, hey ho lets go. Oh yea, much better than expected, thot this would be just another bitter saison, but no! Not too sure about the oak, but this is increasingly becoming quite friendly. Now Iím starting to think this beer ROCKS! Kerry, you are way too kind! Thanks for a wild surprise, just fabb! Why do they put wax on these? Hard to get the cap off. Do you think the wax adds that special flavor I detect? heheh. Can you believe this was a throw in? NO WAY!!!!

Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! Very pale yellow color. Mostly hazy. Thin off-white head, couple dots of lace. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Good oaky aroma, lemony citursy aroma. Moderate sweet taste, light tart. Awesome, lightly sour taste. Good yeasty aroma.
