Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. Hazy golden. Lovely aroma, funky, oaky, vinous, fruits, with a bit of flowers. Dry flavor, bretty, very oaky, with a tart note, fruits, flowers, a bit of spiciness, and some bitterness. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Very nice.

Bottle, shred at the pool party. Extremely lively pour-- all bubbles! Eventually a hazy golden body settles out. Strong citrus and funk aroma, skunky undertones. On the palate there is are spicy and grassy notes too. Pretty gassy still, even after having time to settle. Nice flavours though, nice rustic saison. thornecb (5880) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 28, 2016
WARNING: THIS IS A GUSHER. I have never experienced anything like this bottle. Easily a 2 inch fountain of steady foam for 10 seconds. Lost most of the bottle on the floor. Here’s a review of what I was able to capture. Hazy gold with a bright white soapy head that quickly recedes leaving thick, soapy sheets. Hay and funk aromas. Soft with bready caramel, citrus and marshmallow upfront turning to grapefruit pith in the lasting finish. Would have faired better on appearance and palate if it hadn’t exploded on me. finol (3365) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2016

Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of grass, citrus, funk, spicy notes and rye. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. A very nice Saison. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 bytemesis (8242) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle. Big time gusher on opening. Sigh. Pours quite hazy golden orange, medium white head, creamy and lasting. Aroma is dusty, earthy, Brett, grasses. Flavor is a hint of sweetness, similar hint of tartness, medium funk, earthy, dirty, Brett, lemon, oak tannins. Medium body, nicely carbonated. This turned out much better than I could have hoped given how it started. A bit hot on the finish belies the 8.5% ABV, which it should not have in the first place IMO. ansalon (3796) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2016
Pours hazy orange with a low white head. Aromas of farmhouse, funk, bretta, tropical fruit jam, honey. Taste earthy and rustic with sweet fruit notes and low bitterness. Mouthfeel is somewhat tart and dry with medium carbonation. punkska101 (2002) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle from craft beer cellar shared with God A: barnyard, citrusy, light oak, spicy, apricot App: clear golden thick white lasting head. Excellent lacing t/p: med body with lightly acidic finish. Moderate high carbonation. O: a really fine beer from the Bruery. The wild yeast isn’t too upfront it leaves room to the spiciness of the rye. Good stuff.
