geolgau (169) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - MAY 14, 2017
Aroma: sour fruits, bread, pineapple, a bit of pale malts. A bit woody, which is nice. Taste follows along the nose, adding some yeast along the sourness (detected sour berries). Nice, long and pleasant bitter-sour ending. Really nice.

AssKicker (431) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 11, 2017
Bue à la pression. Couleur jaune assez opaque, fine mousse qui tient sa race. Nez cidré et bien fruité. Douce en bouche avec de grosses notes de pomme et de citron, très agréable, et une bonne pointe vinaigrée sans être ragoutante pour autant. Probablement plus une Sour qu’une Saison, mais ça n’en demeure pas moins super agréable à boire. Du très bon !

A tart and full bodied saison. Very nice nose full of lavender, citrus and spice. Palate is a bit odd with a sour taste but is not there with food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bastarda (496) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2017
kindly shared by impuritylaw, thanks a lot. Long since I last had a beer of this great brewery. Aromas of forest floor with a tiny bitter licorice pastille lurking there somewhere. Complexity in taste, half-rotten juicy apple with edges of chili with the licorice becoming majoram in retronasal aftertaste. Good.

Maakun (5184) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2017
75cl bottle shared at home. Slight hazy golden with big white head that leaves a small ring of bubbles. White grapes, champagne, light yoghurt, gooseberries, apricot, light grass and herbs. There’s light toffee and fudge, raw grains, soft funk too. It’s quite complex with malts, grapes and weird lactic notes being the predominant aromas. Medium sour and sweet. Medium bodied with good amount of slightly fizzy carbonation. Good.
