Barrel #TBB1-613 Bottle #457
Tasted on 1/15/14 from a waxed and capped 750mL bottle purchased at Belmont Station. Pours very cloudy, bright orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to a thick collar of lace. The nose is funky dry brett with some brad malt, floral lavender, cardamom, and some more standard baking spices. The flavor is the same very dry brett funk, orange peel, the pumpkin comes through on the nose, the same baking spices from the nose, and an added vanilla and coconut note, Iím assuming from barrel treatment. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation and a long funky brett, bitter spice, and coconut barrel finish.

Bottle from Andersons in Dublin: hazy yellow, thin white. aroma of nice funk, floral, perfume. tastes are moderately tart - herbal, pepper spiced, woody, brett, lemon, floral and funky. moderate dry on the thin to medium palate. I know itís based on a saison, but just a sour in my book. good at that.

mcberko (10071) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out vinous notes, lots of lavender, and brett. Flavour is complex and cohesive, with lots of lavender upfront, followed by big funky brett notes and white wine barrels. Very spicy, bretty, and complex. Could use a bit more carbonation. Very good stuff.

arminjewell (8752) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2015
Pour on tap, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grain, bread, biscuit into a bit of grass, herbal notes with lots of the lavender notes into a bit of tart lemon, oak, touch of lemon peel into a bit of fruit, some spice notes. Taste was a mix of funk, oak, earth into big lavender, a bit of yeast, slight bread into a bit of lemon, slight white fruit, finishing slightly tart, dry.

Mep3222 (941) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - APR 11, 2015
Aroma of oak, tropical fruit, tartness slight funk. Taste is the same but brings out the lavender as well. Slightly sweet tart finish. Well balanced, very complex and all around quite a good beer. Less funky than saison man and has a slight lactic tart finish to it, which is quite nice. Subtle sourness but nice. Really like this as I drink it. Bumping up from 4 to 4.1---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OldMrCrow (2198) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2015
Bottle from the Beer Authority.

Hazy gold pour, limited head. Aroma belies the sour flavors, slightly herbal. Quite tart for a saison, but initially a bit too much so and not very interesting. I leave this one sitting for an hour or two; upon returning the carbonation is markedly low and the tartness remains but at room temperature it is reasonably enjoyable despite the lack of focus.

RobertDale (4430) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAR 1, 2015
750 ml. bottle. Pours golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma of fruit, funk, spice, and floral. Taste is tart fruit, funk, lavender, citrus, spice, and funk. Thought a bit too much lavender. Pretty good.

375, capped and waxed. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with no head, lace, or legs. Oranges and lemons on the nose. Creamy medium flat body. Light caramel with oranges and lemons on the mid palate. Mild citric finish. Not much happening here, really.

beastiefan2k (2906) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2014
750mL bottle at Uber Tavern. Clear gold color, no head. Melony acetic sour beer but not strong. A doable sour, especially for this acetic brewery. Its doable but not refined.

skoisirius (1882) - Earth, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2014
750ml. Straw filled barnyard nose with hints of funk and grains tossed in spice. Fairly medium bodied but thick with flavor. You canít taste the pumpkin so much, but the lavender really comes through in the finish. A clever odd one that worked from Trinity...
