mariuspoenari (1821) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2016
35cl bottle. Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Smells like brett, unripe grapes, grapefruit, barnyard funk. Bitter and crisp, refreshing, with notes of apple cider, vinegar, unripe grapes and a very small amount of funk in the background.

meyers1023 (69) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2016
This is truly a great barrel aged saison! The complex flavor of oak, funk, and citrus sweetness blend together so well. It has a great balance of tartness and sweetness that makes for a very refreshing beer.

Klimaet (2135) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours a light hazy orange with a medium white head. Aromas of sweet esters, oaky sweet notes, citrussy, lemon zesty, some sweet green grapes, light moldy. Taste is tarter- citrussy, lemon zest, orange peel, some stone fruits, oaky sweetness, light saison yeast, once again a sweet vinous note in the back. Reminds me of a dessert wine mixed with a tart saison. Darn nice!

pushkinwow (2691) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle picked up at HF. Pours a clear somewhat pale yellow with an off white head. Nice tartness with a moderate amount of sour, some light funk, oak, lemon zest, yeast. Moderate+ carbonation and moderate body, fades on the finish but enjoyable overall.

Japalo (1850) - DENMARK - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle @home. Haze golden. Small head. Citrus barnyard medium funky. Smooth well balanced oak to sour fruits. Bone dry and the best in my palate from the Staves yet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2016
0.375 l bottle from Firma Bier. Deep golden color. Tart, acidic and perfumed aroma with raspberry, sour cherries, lemon and citrus pith. Acidic lemon and sour cherry taste upfront with grainy, phenolic and woody notes in the background. Excellent acidity, sharp enough but still quite drinkable. Fairly low carbonation. Despite the acidity mouthfeel is oily and smooth. Reminds gueuze but is softer and more drinkable.

rodenbach99 (4323) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2016
2014 Batch 16. Liquide dore translucide avec une mousse qui ne fit que passer. Un premier nez agrable de bois mouill. Ensuite des pommes vertes et du jus de pomme filtr (presque du cidre). Une bouche acide mais agrable, texture huileuse, des saveurs de citron au jus de bois fort intense. Une finale surette intense mais qui commande den reprendre.

Boutip (6014) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle: Poured a hazy light dirty beige color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of tart notes with light oak notes. Taste is a mix of tart notes with some funky notes and some oak notes. Limited acidity with just enough complexity. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting flavors with good level of complexity.
