Beautiful clear golden pour. Thick white head. The nose is soft and dry. Really gorgeous perfumy nose with a lot of dried flower, fruity zest and a bit of flinty/earthy yeasty funk. Really tasty. Horse blanket, dry stone fruit, apricot and a great peppery finish. Hop_Hedonist (654) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2017
Bottle - solid sour saison - lots of funk - good sour fruit but phenolics (I get banana) a bit jarring in the aftertaste - like it don’t love it like the other Almanacs. davidezdonz (610) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAY 4, 2017
A 375ml bottle, bottled in September 2015. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku. It was a nice hazy golden colour with a two finger white head that had pretty good retention and nice lacing. Aromas of flowers and orange zest with hints of grapefruit, oak, pine and brett funk. Tastes of white wine with hints of oak, mango, candied pineapple, lemon and funk. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this was nice and easy to drink. Only a little sour, but well balanced and still good after almost 19 months.

Pours cloudy and gold with a big white head. Smells quite fruity and very bretty. Very funky beer, dry, coates the tongue, slightly tannic. Very flavourful and a bit of a kick, yummy! explosivedog (1684) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 7, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 375ml bottle. Pours gold and hazy. Lemon, peach, bread, sourdough bread, lemon juice, lemon zest, gooseberry, funky hay, white grapes. Sour, yeasty, bitter, sweet, dry. So much going on and so much to love. Undoubtably the best saison I’ve ever drunk.

Hazy dark straw pour with off-white head. Nose is hops, citrus, fruit. Tart flavor, very complex, more hops and fruit. Stoned99 (1684) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2017
Bottle shared with Jo and Seb. Aroma: big citrus mostly lemon, tropical fruits, white wine. This is really green. App: clear pale with green tint, small white head, good lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, clean acidity, resinous and bitter finish. Overall: damn good. I really like this kind of beer. Hoppy and sour. Another great beer from them. Like Jo said: better than sex. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Bottle enjoyed at Christmas in Colorado. Funky, honey, straw, slight pear aromas. Tart, honey, funky, fruity, mango flavors. ComradeK (1260) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a large white head, which fades fairly quickly and leaves some lacing. Riesling, sour citrus and leather make up the aroma. Grapefruit hops, strong tartness and earthy funk up front give way to a leathery body, with oak notes. The finish is crisp and sour. A nice sour. cubs (10721) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle in Winter Park with jcnielsen. Thanks Justin! Pours a milky yellow appearance with a white head. Dank, piney hops in the nose. Grapefruit, lemon, vanilla, funk, and light plastic in the nose. Kind of tastes like pineapple upside down cake. Candy, herbal, and white wine notes. The aroma is pretty fun but the flavor wasn’t quite as good as expected. Fine to try but not a repeat buy.
