fidelis83 (2310) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Cloudy gold pour with a 3 finger, fluffy beige head. Aroma has lots of fruity funky brett, but in a pretty mild way, hay, lots of floral and citrus hops, hints of untoasted oak. Flavor is pretty amazing, nice funk, lots of berry, vinous and citrus notes, sweet cereal, lemon grass, sweet floral notes and just a hint of oak to the finish. Light to medium body with a slightly creamy entry turning juicy from there out to a slightly more dry finish, with some light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation. Really amazing stuff, right up there with my favorite Saisons, possibly the best I have had. Easily the best at hiding a high ABV%.

750 ml corked and caged bottle. Sat for awhile in a cellar. The aroma has mild perfume, mild Brett, rose pedals.

Flavor shows me a mild fruit note upfront before turning to Rose pedals and a mild funky yeast. Mild oak. As I drink it the tartness and spice hints. The beer shows a bone dry texture. Overall, pretty damn nice.

MetalNHopHead (1747) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Love Buzz is the kind of funky beauty Ive come to expect from Anchorage. It pours light amber - the subtle reddish tint evidently comes from the rose petals used in this brew. Floral, woodsy, vinous, and yeasty aromas. Flavor is deeply complex with bready and earthy yeast, rose, wine tannins, spices, a slight cheesiness, and zesty fruit. Moderately lively feel and quite a bit of bitterness (redolent of fruit pith) for a Saison. The musty elements will be difficult for the uninitiated, but if you believe that rot can be gorgeous, this will exceed your expectations.

Clareeses (68) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 18, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 Corked bottle. Heavy fruit aroma - peach and strawberry. Opaque amber appearance, mild carbonation. Can definitely taste the pinot initially, though also has heavy cheesy funk. Alcoholic finish. Definitely a sipper...but very unique.

elihapa (1552) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - NOV 1, 2016
bomber, Wallys @ $12.99. Pours a hazy, soft gold with a medium coarse white head. Dusty aromas of white pepper, coriander, hint of Brett, coconut. Flavor has peppery saison yeast, mild tang of mandarin orange, and a background woodsy vinous element. Body is medium, fuller than most Saisons, probably due to Alcohol and barrel aging. A complex and tasty drink, though Im less convinced that the final product is greater than the individual parts that went into this.

Bottle shared with Gus. Aroma is pinot noir, clove, spices, tart, really nice. Appearance is reddish golden, hazy, off white head. Taste is pinot noir, tart, dry, barnyard, spices, good. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, pinot noir aftertaste. Overall, Im enjoying this very much.

tightslice (1158) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle from Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA ($18 take-away). Pours a picturesque light golden amber. Aroma is mild funk, light orange blossoms, fermented orange peels, citra hops. Palate is creamy smooth yet crisp. Taste is a complex stew of bright orange, rotten orange, floral orange, medicinal / vitamins, spicy pepper, hops... so much going on that this shouldnt be good but it works. A rotten potpourri of a beer that is quite glorious.

750ml bottle. Clear orange with a foamy white head. Flavors are biscuity cereals, caramel, citrus, melon, oak, funk and pepper with vinous, floral and medicinal notes. Medium body, moderate to good carbonation, oily texture.

michcam8 (538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Finally bucked up to buy this bottle. Pours a hazy golden orangish glow, with a fluffy white head. Aroma of chardonnay, orange zest, barnyard funk and light malts. Taste is orange marmalade, funky brett yeast, mouth puckering grapefruit. Dry finish. Zero detection of alcohol. Damn fine beer. Would recommend to others for sure.
