Bottle at alla spina with pat and Sean for Seans bday and pats last Saturday on mt Vernon. Tear. Respect. Pours a hazy golden orange body with frothy white head. Aroma is delicious lambic, yeast, sour tart fruit and funk. Mouthfeel is carbonated and dry with notes of dry farmhouse yeast, light spice, light funk, dry citrus.

12.7 oz bottle, purchased at City Beer. Pours a tarnished, golden-bronze color with great head formation: small bubbles, creamy lacing, excellent retention; a beautiful pour. This beer starts and finishes saison, but with vibrant Cantillon lambic shaping the middle. Aroma shows toasted grains, light white pepper, and a dryness met with a cherry-tinged hint of whats ahead. The flavor shows quite a bit more of the Cantillon character, at least at first: a vibrant, cherry-ish tartness and acidity that soon sits behind that crusty, toasty, beautifully dry saison core that forms the majority of this blend; an excellent saison with a jolt of initial tartness; damn tasty stuff right here. Lasting finish returns to saison land: dry, crusty, peppery, with a lingering huskiness. Yum.

daje (4209) - NORWAY - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle, bought at Bir&Fud Bottega, Rome. Hazy orange body, big frothy white head. Aroma of grapes, grass, yeast, cherries and bread. Medium body and a lively carbonation. The lambic taste is clear with sour grapes and yeast, but its far from as sour as lambics, its clearly a saison with lambic, not the other way around. Its pretty good balanced with maltsweetness, citrus, herbs and oranges, this beer combines saison and lambic in a perfect way. Being a fan of both styles I totally loved it - it was shared with someone who doesnt like lambic, he loved it too.

Lukaduke (3089) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours a hazy peachy ochre color with a big frothy head that stays around for the length of the beer. On the nose great aromas of strawberry, stonefruit, wet hay and floral touches of lavender and grassy hops. On the palate this beer is a beautiful blend of my two favorite style... saison and lambic ! Yum, all the components are there... rustic round earthy flavors with wild yeasty herbalness from the saison... balanced with bright sour fruit touches of basement funk and amazing lingering lemon summer barnyard notes ! Top Notch

Taste is tart lemon and berry, some orange, hints of oak, white grape, touch of peach, hints of funky brett, slight lactic notes, finishing fairly bitter and funky, slight lactic notes.

Koelschtrinker (18349) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 23, 2012
Der oxidierte Beginn ist hefig-suerlich und leider etwas muffig. Laff, wenig aromatisch, trocken, mild. Ein recht flaches Bier, vielleicht schon zu alt. 9/7/7/6/11/7

Pours amber with no head. Smells of vinegar and sourness. Good balance of sweet and sour with a salty/bitter finish. Very clean finish, and refreshing.

drpimento (3278) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Exceptional beer! Poured at a good temperature with an enormous, fluffy, frothy, foamy, off-white, billowy head that very slowly settled and loads of sticky lace. Color is a very slightly hazy amber with many bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, citrus and pears, malt, crackers. Flavors very close to nose, ever so slightly sweet, great bitter and carbonic tang balance. Body and carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor with a neat slight sweetness up front and astringency in back, fairly long, and drinkable for a tart brew.

750 ml green bottle poured a hazy gold with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of straw, earthiness, citrus and barnyard funk. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, earthiness, barnyard funk and light citrus with a crisp dry lingering funky earthy finish.
