1L bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a cloudy grapefruit appearance; off-white head with good lacing. Tart citrus and grapefruit; spice and floral notes in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel: tart grapefruit and citrus; mild, zesty acidity; yeasty notes. Medium, tart finish, showing grapefruit and some dough.

Bottle courtesy of argo0. Cloudy, somewhat dull orange with an off-white/grayish head. Interesting nose of roses and grandmaís perfume. Tart fruitiness, medium sourness/funk along with notes of roses (and other flowers I canít quite identify), light cherry and some wood character. Pretty dry. Medium to lighter bodied with moderate carbonation. An adventurous and fun brew, even though I didnít quite love it - definitely worth a try.

1L bottle @ Kenís Walloping Wednesday - Softly hazed gold, creamy off white head. Nose held funked floral and sour lemon-like tones. Hints of yeasty black pepper emerge on further warming. Flavor was very nice with a well balanced mix of bretty funk and peppery lemon florals. Nicely complex for the light ABV. Light bodied, medium carbonation, peppery, sour fruity finish. Unique and tasty for sure. Thanks argo0.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 Sampled from a 1L bottle, 2007
Poured near the end of the bottle so the yeast was most likely heavy, but I donít mind since the yeast smelled and tasted fantastic. Nice soft funkiness in the nose, some sour and peppery basil/herb/spice aromas, the black pepper is certainly evident, and I pick up some lavendar floral scents and something resembling spiced berries and wood. Lightly tart flavor, tingling the tongue, then turning pasty while still remaining peppery all across the palate, start to finish. Even some grassiness in the finish as well. Good stuff. Weird beer and I like weird beer. 3.8

draft @ the brewery in 2009
heavily spiced, unkempt floral/soap character. soapy and messy. 3.4

pours a murky light orange color with a huge creamy off-white head. little bit of sediment floating in glass. aroma of flowery hops and black pepper. aroma is somewhat similar to a fantome saison. flavor has notes of hops, pepper, bread, peanut brittle, grapes and berries. light bodied. hint of tartness on the palate. seems more like a summer beer than winter.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2007
(1L bottle) Pours a cloudy amber body with a medium white head. Aroma of a florist shop dominated by roses on Valentines Day. Flavor of floral hops, berries, citrus, honey, and gueuze-like sourness. Reminds me a lot of a rose beer I had while in Dali, China last year.

3.1
BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2007
Pale with a yeasty earthy aroma - olives? Very earthy flavor with some sweetness. Notes arenít very good - this was from a mass tasting.
