Little cloudy orange beer, small white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: pretty fruity, peaches, sweet pineapple, bit yeasty, cheesy, oranges, spices. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: surprisingly sour bretty touch (no, I did not read the bottle), fruity notes of pineapple and passion fruits, a bitter herbal touch, some alcohol and bretta sourness. Aftertaste: fruity, bretta, grapefruit, bitter dry ending, some warming alcohol in the back.
Very different from the everyday beer. Great red color with a sour note. Nice cherry note finish.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of spices, fruits, brettanomyces, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruits, and berries, as well as hints of brettanomyces leading to a dry finish. A bit boring. Thanks pinball for sharing.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a cloudy amber with a frothy off-white head leaving quite some lacework. Fruity nose with quite some Brett. Medium body, sweet fruitiness, there’s a dry tart berry note probably from the Pinot Noir barrel combined with a pleasant funky Brettyness. Ends dry with some hops showing. Calling this a Saison is probably stretching the borders of the style, but it sure is a nice beer. 290212

This poured a cloudy paler yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots and lots of bretty goodness, and light vineous notes too. Flvor was very dry bret notes, slightly acidic, and light fruity character too. Interesting but weird. kbc (33) - Vitoria - Gasteiz, SPAIN - FEB 28, 2012
Complex saison with earthy and floral aroma and a rose and fruity aftertaste cheap (6202) - CHINA - FEB 27, 2012
Had this at Ratebeer’s Horny Devil Pittsburgh Winter Tasting 2012. Big thanks to Lithy for this brew! Almost orange but yet quite yellow. Slightly hazy. Big bubbly head then fades rapidly. Interesting mild aroma. First taste is quite bitter, beerwise. Gets better as the tasting continues. Yes, each sip starts a little bitter then evolves to a medium grapefruit rind flavor. Fine creamy CO2. Finish is a little more over the top than I can care for. However, hides alky fairly well, you’d never know this was 8%.Thanks Justin for the chance to try this rarity! lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Hazy yellow-gold, puffy white head, aroma is spicing, red wine. Taste is lots of oak, some grape, dry bretty, its ok, just have not really been wowed by anything from these guy yet. NosirIwont (2645) - Husum, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a fluffy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet, fat and tart with notes of citrus hops, fruit and candy. Sweet, dark fruit flavour with candy/citrus hops and malt malt in the background. Bitter, tart finish, dry with a bit of an alcohol burn and remote notes of brett in the background. Slightly too much carbonation. Overall very good and well-balanced; the brett note was especially nice; not too intrusive, but just right. 17.02.12.
