jookos (6067) - FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle .75, 5% version. Yellow hazy, well carbonated. Barny funk on nose, wheaty hay, light citrus. Med light body. Light acidity, oak / barn flavours, lemony citrus. Dry finish. Pretty nice. Is refreshing, but has also an interesting light funky flavour, apparently from the oak barrels. Interesting and nice, doesn’t get boring.

PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2014
From TAP at Moeder Lambic, shared with Mathieu87. To bad I missed the fruit variants... Would have liked to taste those as well... APPEARANCE: clouded blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: fresh, hoppy, fruity, lytchee. TASTE: fruity, little dry, subtle sourness. Very balanced and good saison!

Au fût @ ML Fontainas. (18/05/2014) with hackobock. Bière blonde à la robe paillé au beau col evanescent à l’effervescence moyenne. Saison? Que nenni! Je dirais plutôt "un vin de lambic malté", tellement l’acidité est ici forte, prépondérante sur tout la longueur de la dégustation au point de ravager la maltage qui pourtant offre un aspect soyeux, et léger à l’ourlet mielleux, mais surpassé par les arômes vineux et acides sur des notes vinaigreés au fruit. Cependant, elle offre un beau nez assez ample fleuri, suret, vineux et boisé. Mais je n’aime pas cette acidité carrée qui se déploye sur toute la langue, les papilles et le palais avec trop de force car elle déséquilibre complètement la bière.

StilleStorm (1468) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2014
DWG; Pours gloudy golden orange with a fluffy, creamy, for ever lasting and lacing head. Aroma is malt, yeast, sour, apples, citrus and pepper. Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light spices and bitter lasting. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Marheb (5532) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 18, 2014
(Bouteille 33cl): Un nez savonneux de levure, houblons citronnés, vin blanc et tanins doux. En bouche c’est moelleux et bien houblonné avec les notes vineuses évidentes et enrobantes. Buvabilité fulgurante.

abemorsten (3592) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2014
Sparkling muddy yellow-golden body with an inch thick white head leaving speckled laces. Complex wooden spicy funky fruity berry yeasty nose. Aromas that seems to evolve during the time I take to sniff them out. Most inviting. Refreshing grapefruit acidity and tannins with the original aromas on top. The late finish has an unexpected twist reminiscent of sea-buckthorn. A summer beer that leaves the tongue dry and begging for more. "It hurts so good".

xBEERxNOLA (72) - - JUN 1, 2014
Appearance - pours hazy yellow. Aroma - slight apple and citrus. Mouth - med carb. Taste - sour funk at front. Strange flavor I can't put my finger on at the middle. Just a little too funky and not mouth puckering sour. Overall - not great for me. Can't put my finger on the flavor that comes through on the finish but not my thing. The funky yeast flavor is there but the type isn't my thing.

Grzesiek79 (4187) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Zdecydowane tresciwe kwaskowate niczym poczciwy stary Lambick. Wspaniale piwo sezonowe z wielka slomakowa i trwala piana. Koloru zoltego z jasno pomaranczowymi refleksami. Piwo przemile delikatnie kwaskowe zero slodkosci. Cala masa drozdzy i metne po calosci. Super piwo i super wrazenia. Otrzymalem to co sie spodziewalem, moze rownac sie z najlepszymi Saison z Belgii. Polecam

curepute (141) - New York, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Slight hazy yellow/orange with a big fluffy head. Nose of tropical fruit, oak and white wine, reminds me of a lambic. Taste has some light fruit, maybe a hint of lemon, surprisingly malty, oak comes through after the fruit dies down. Finishes with a tart kick that disappears quickly and the oak comes through again with a little funk. Light bodied and dry.
