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.

PhillyBeer2112 (2894) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle, mild gusher. Full foamy head, pale golden, cloudy. Pleasant mild aroma of chardonnay, a little grassy, touch of funk. Light bodied, mildly sweet, medium sourness with a drying easy finish. Exceptionally refreshing. Lingering aftertaste hints at a floral hop but very mildly so.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2011
12.7 oz bottle. Golden orange pour with white head. Aroma of hat, belgian esters, mild funk. Some barnyard and green apple. Flavor is tart, hints at bracing sourness but surrounded by fruity belgian saison esters. White pepper, tangerine, dust and hay. Very earthy and enjoyable. Nice, spritzy carbonation with nice mouthfeel. Very enjoyable. Cool, different beer.

Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2011
A word of warning on this one, mine was a gusher. There is a wonderful tart aroma, with underlying notes of funk and horse blanket. There is a touch of dry saison spice that is there in the aroma weaving through the funk. It pours a hazy straw, with a giant white craggy head. The saison restrains some of the more over the top sourness that Cantillon can bring to the table. Nice tart flavor, with a touch of sour apples in the finish. Clean on the palate, and a very enjoyable beer. Special thanks to Cavalier and Rozi’s for having this available.

Tmoney99 (14954) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruit citrus and sour yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour yeast citrus flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

Beerygeek (36) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 14, 2011
A hazy, yellow colour and a thin head with an aroma somewhere between a barn and old tennis shoes. The flavour comes across with an interesting sour note, and surprisingly tasty considering the aroma
