375mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is full of barnyard notes, hay, Belgian yeast and a little farmhouse funk. Flavour brings out wonderful farmhouse notes of barnyard funk, citrus, mild floral hops and Belgian yeast. Finishes on notes of doughy crackery malt, citrus and Belgian yeast. Fairly dry palate, but also doughy giving it body. Highly drinkable stuff.

Bottle from PC Market of Choice in Ashland, OR. Pours hazy orange gold with a frothy white head. Smells of cooked light pitted fruit. Or Belgian yeast. Med + body. Flavor is earthy/yeast/spicy with some light pitted fruit esters. Arguably finishing not quite dry, but earthy.

Tmoney99 (13904) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate foral hop and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small fizzy white head. The aroma is Belgian yeast, lightly spicy, cheese, citrus and bread dough. The flavor is doughy bread, grassy, Belgian yeast, peppery spice and citrus. I thought this was just a bit all over the place.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy copper yellow color with a large white head. An earthy sweet yeasty nose with some light perfume. The flavor is grainy, citrus, some dry earthy malts. Interesting brew.

375, capped. Thanks j! Pours a cloudy medium gold with bright edges. Huge forward nose--floral, lightly tart (lemony), some white pepper, maybe some pink peppercorn. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Candied lemon, pink peppercorn, floral notes on the mid palate. Crisp refreshing finish.

375 ml bottle thanks to Garry. Orange like pour. Light perfume and fruit. Light body. Not a heavy yeasty presence. Maybe some plum or grape. Different.

jgb9348 (5915) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Crisp clear golden coloured body with a thin, one centimetre very large-bubbled white head. Aroma of pale malt, paint thinner, acetone, alcohol, apples, pears and a super pungent smell of champagne - dry and to the point. Light-bodied; Interesting flavour of deep malt, alcohol, oak, champagne, cognac, cherries and a light sweetness from sugar. Aftertaste has a very nice complexity with dry oak and malt coming through most, then a faint lemon and complex belgian yeast quality, all finishing with some mild sweetness. Overall, an interesting beer with some good flavours, but not anything truly amazing. I sampled this 37,5 cL stubby split (no cork) bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 25-April-2013 for US$4.46 sampled at home in Washington on 04-January-2014.

Bottle (375 ml) at home. 8.5 % abv version. Split 2-ways. Another one that spent a bit too much time in the cellar. Slow gusher. Clear bright golden with a frothy white head, decent retention, leaving lots of lacing. Aroma is of noble hops flirting with grapey notes as well as Belgian yeast, grassy notes, bread and lemony notes. Taste is grassy and bread forward with mild white grapes notes, hints of peppery yeast and very light bitterness. Medium body. Good carbonation. A bit oily mouthfeel. Dry finish with a short grassy aftertaste. It feels lighter than the abv suggest. Not bad, rather boring all-round but overall its better / more enjoyable than the sum of its part. Only thing I liked less is the grapey notes. Decent-good.

murky gold, large bubbled white head laces all over. Dusty brett nose, faint grass and earth, light cotton candy, not as much as young Orval. Light grass and metal at front, more dough and brett esters mid, lightly peppery with more hay and saddle. A bit messy on the edges but otherwise decent interpretation. Matilda pre 06 still the best.
