Bottle. Unclear yellow body with a big, but fast fading white head. Aroma is fruity with peaches, light acidic berries, slightly floral and mild, smooth farmhouse funk. Nice balanced flavor with sweet citric fruit, pale malt, some acid, berries and pleasant funk. Fine body and nice aftertaste. I really liked this one, very refreshing and complex in a mild way at the same time. gunnar (10083) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2018
Shared bottle at Bie. Pours hazy weak golden with a weak small white head. Aroma of brett and funky farmhouse. Taste is light sweet farmhouse malts, decent dry funky finish. Travlr (27116) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle sample courtesy of the rep thanks. Clearish golden color. Dusty pepper aroma. Taste is earthy dusty straw and light citrus. Nice. Theydon_Bois (22083) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Bottle split at Leighton's 20K, thanks to Fergus Nxxxxx, 01/03/17.
Hazed golden orange with a decent light beige covering.
Nose is big on funk and brett, citric rinds, straw, on the turn melon.
Taste comprises pissy citrics, sharp melon, grains, white peppery spice, big herbal notes, brett pangs.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok saison but overly herbal for me. Hoprider (809) - DENMARK - AUG 26, 2017
Pours almost clear with a deep golden colour and a big pillowy head. Aroma is very inviting, sour citric quality along with a funky, flowery saison yeasty, cheesy kinda thing. Aroma translates into flavour. Sour, tart saison with a more traditional dry, peppery, yeasty flavour. Long aftertaste.

Sampled from bottle shared by Joes. Opaque hazy light orange color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, slight tart, peach. Decent body, suitable soft carbonation. Quite pleasant. DutchDrebus (6401) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle @ joes. Clear gold, huge white head. Smells malts, barnyard. Tastes fresh, yeasty, malts, nice. Medium body, medium carbo. Scopey (16778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2017
Bottle at Leighton’s 20K, thanks to Fergus. It pours cloudy orange - amber with a massive white head. The aroma is bready, musty, funky, earth, dirt, herbal, quite sweaty, orange peel, mango and apricot. The taste is crisp, dry, bitter - sweet, earthy, musty, funky, wood, dirt, leather, farmyard, spice and a touch metallic with a dry finish. Medium body, high carbonation and massively foamy mouth - feel. Very earthy and dirty. Fun, but doesn’t come across as well refined. madmitch76 (27126) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2017

Leighton’s 20K at his posh new gaff! Thanks to Fergus. Hazy gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Fluffy floralness, bretty undertone. Floral bitterness. Something a little skewed. Airy dry finish. Not doing much for me.
St David’s Day 2017 - Bottle share at Leighton’s 20K. Many congrats! As ’Blackberry Farm Cellar Reserve Brettanomyces Saison’. Big thanks to Fergus for this one. Pours dark orange, almost opaque, huge foamy off-white head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is quite heady and herbal – couldn’t quite place it – had me thinking of sage and bay leaf, stuffing. Also chalky. Body is light and thin, frothy with tingly+ carbonation. Taste is quite spicy, chalk and bonbons with icing sugar, rounded sugars with more spice into the finish. Quite interesting. Touch washed out by carbonation. (3.5)
