nimbleprop (8474) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 30, 2017
750ml bottle I brought back from the UK a year ago, pours a hazy orange with some clumpy, white head. Nose is very good, lemon, grapefruit rind, white grape, some wet wood, some kumquat, persimmon. Flavor is lesser, tart with grapefruit and lemon rinds, some white wine, kumquat, some medicine cabinet funk here. Dry and tart finish. Very well done.

Nice stuff. Crackery lambic like bretta and grapefruit. Hazy golden pour. Tangy citrus finish. Very nicely done. Bottle.

KyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 30, 2016
Bottle, 2015 version. Funky ass barnyard nose, grapefruit, dust, old books, grapes, vanilla. Sour flavor, but not over the top, slightly sweet and fruity, citrus. This basically tastes like a nice jonge geuze, and with a few more years could be much better. Now I see it has lambic in it, which makes sense. Very nice, and will get better with age.

On tap at BD57, july 23rd 2016.Unclear orange body with a low offwhite head. Aroma of leather, funk, apricot and berries. Taste is funky and bitter with a fruity edge. Quite refreshing and nice, with a sweet juicy finish.

SaintMatty (7423) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2016
750ml Bottle - Golden in colour with a white head. Lemon, wood, grapes and elderflower in the aroma. Fruity, fresh and tart taste with lemon, oak, elderflower and some peachy hop notes. Very nice and surprisingly considering it was bottled 18 months ago.

Catch up rate. Bottle from Cornelius. Shared with Jim and Lyns. Another absolute cracking saison, lovely balance of sour and funk with woody base. Delicious.

The_Osprey (8211) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle share at CBC Islington as ’Burning Sky Cuvée Reserve’. Many thanks to Matty O for this bonzer beer. Vibrant orange, hazy and opaque, foamy off-white head, dotted lacing. Aroma is rubbery, some manure, soil, light lemon and lambic funkiness. Body is smooth, soft carbonation, a touch foamy. Taste is lemon, rubbery, soft buttery oak, elderflower wine. Lovely smooth flavour. Very tasty indeed.

4.3
GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Pale gold with a slight haze and a tight, moderately persistent white head. There’s a fairly pronounced white wine character in the aroma, with some gooseberry, apricot, and noticeable oak notes. There’s also the slightly lemon-sherbety Girardin funk in there as well. Soft carbonation with the oak giving some appearance of sweetness which is balanced by a nice, quenching, but not aggressive, acidity. Really excellent beer.
