Purchased a 25.4floz (750ml) bottle about six months ago for something like $8. It has a black label, so I guess this is the "black" label 2.0, same 7.5 abv. No freshness dating on the bottle, consumed 03.13.2017. Funky, lemony aroma goes along with a very light and bubbly body. Pretty sour for what is considered a saison style beer. Its highly carbonated and feels light-ish. A one-trick pony, delivering tart yeast. Not much notable as flavors from malts or hops.

Thanks to Greg for this one! Belle petite saison typiquement belge en à peu près tout point : robe claire, mousse bien onctueuse et structurée. Belle présence de levures Saison tant au nez qu’au palais, agrémentées d’une bulle cohérente tant avec le style qu’avec la légèreté de la bière. Assez mince, saveurs étroites et courtes, une base de jeunes céréales croquantes ne fait pas défaut. Se boit très aisément et rafraîchit dangereusement bien mon palais. Beau produit.

willisread (3703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Tap at Gambrinus. 6% abv version. Pours a hazy gold with a finger of fluffy white foam. Tons of hay, lemon, gooseberry and brett. Light and crisp on the palate with good funk and earthiness. Brett and yeast work well together in this one and no weird spice adjuncts that most American brewers add to their saisons. Very well-executed and lowish abv.

Bottle from Greg (gregwilsonstl) -- cheers, buddy! Great saison that manages to be tasty/complex and enjoyable/refreshing all at the same time. It’s light and peppery, effervescent, and just a tad funky, and it was great to split with friends in the back garden on a hot day. Excellent stuff.

3.6
RobertDale (6913) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, and yeast. Taste is tropical, citrus, yeast, and malt. Nice Saison.
