Bottle with a best before date of 07-2013 thanks to the brewers at Eataly. Pours with a hazy yellow hued body and a lasting, frothy white head. Aromas are of rich funk, floral, estery, orange peel with medium grain. Flavors show a mild acidity, medium esters, rich funk, strawberry and citrus. Bone dry, a touch thin, lively bubbles. Very tasty.

Pours light copper with a large white head. The aroma has sharp citrus, peach/nectarine, earthy yeast, must and lots of peppery phenols. Medium body that is very crisp with quite a bit of carbonation at the end. The flavor starts much like the aroma with the fruitiness, but is a bit sharper and biting. The lambic doesnt really stand out, but I havent had the original version to see what changes it made. The finish has a nice lemony bite, is very peppery and quite refreshing. Very well made saison.

Dogbrick (12633) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2011
This beer pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a medium fizzy white head that burns away steadily to a film. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Tart fruit, frunky yeast and wheat in the nose. Light, effervescent body with flavors of lemon, wheat, yeast and bit of pepper. The finish is fruity with a tart apple aftertaste. Above average overall.

375mL. GUSHER!! Pours a cloudy, glowing light yellow with a billowing white head with excellent retention and scant lace. Excellent tangerine and lemon nose with subtle hints of white grapefruit from the lambic. Soft floral notes. Taste is wildly quenching like soft lemonade and a ton of overlap with Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere. Maybe small hints of eggy sulfur and tart tangerine. Really soft and hot summer day quenching. Perfect for the style. Lightyears better than the normal Duchessa.

12.7 ounce bottle, 07 2013 stamped on the back label (I guess thats the best by date). Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy gold color with a couple inch frothy white head that stays around for a long time. Theres also a good amount of lacing. The aroma is nice, it smells like peppery spice, lemon peel, pears, hay, wheat and some funk. It tastes like lemon peel, wheat, peppery spice, slightly tart lemons, apricots, white grapes and funk. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, with high (a little bit too high for me) but soft carbonation. I think this is a good saison/lambic blend. Its pricey at $9.99 a bottle but Id buy this brew again, I liked it.

In terms of Lambics, Birra del Borgos offering is up there with the top contenders. It strikes a perfect balance between the two worlds of a saison and a lambic. Blends the doughy yeast and complex sours quite gracefully. Complex beer, full of different flavor, very refreshing.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2011 Bottle. Saw at the store and after seeing if was mixed with lambic from Cantillon, figured it was a safe-ish buy to try. Bottle gives a healthy "pop" when opened and pours a very heady slighlty cloudy orange amber color. The head is bone white and slowly settles. Spice, yeast, biscuit, and a slight lemon in the nose. Interesting. Lemon sour note up front followed by a drawn out saison/farmhouse floral, orange citrus, and belgian yeast flavor. Light mouthfeel. Some lace left on the glass. Overall, a nice beer. Refreshing. Wonder what some time on a bottle would do?

Tasted on 11/11/11 from a capped 375mL bottle shared by ryan585. After a bit of gushing, the beer pours a cloudy yellow/orange with a massive white head that slowly recedes to an even layer of lace. The nose is white peppercorn, light bread malt, and spicy yeast, straightforward Saison, mixed with sour lemon notes and barnyard funk. This beer tasted just like a blend of Saison and Lambic should tasted, with the very lightly sweet light bread malt up front, and the lemon citrus notes starting to kick in, moving to the spicy Saison yeast and funky barnyard, finishing with lemon acidity and light hops bitterness. The body light with lively carbonation and a long, spicy, sour, and lightly bitter finish.
