Tasting at Matt’sFerris (15275) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
Murky blond color, small head, not inviting. Fruity aroma, sour. Overly carbonated; extreme astringent flavor, dirty, yeasty, with excessive bitterness, covering any fruity character.
Dirty and almost undrinkable.
Bottle - Light soured pale malts. Cloudy yellow gold. Sweet and lightly tart ale, some light fruity esters and banana. Not bad. mcberko (17830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy pale golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma brings out farmhouse notes, yeast, and dry floral notes. Flavour is earthy and yeasty, with farmhouse yeast, thick yeast soup and more yeast. Sounds bad as I describe it, but it’s rather nice. Dry, earthy and yeasty finish. Nice stuff. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Pours a very hazy pale straw gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of fruity & spicy Belgian yeast (some of this may be contributed by the spelt, I’m not sure on that). The flavor is pronounced fruity Belgian yeast with a nice spiciness to it as well (which again could be the spelt, I’m not sure). Tart but not sour. Light-medium bodied. Solid.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a dissipating white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of nice farmhouse yeast with lemon esters, hay, and slight wheat. Taste follows with a hint of earth and funk, slight bitterness. Bubbly carbonation. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle at Brouwerij Lane. Pours yellow gold with white head. Nose and taste of spelt, funk, lemongrass, honey and lemon malt. Medium body. BLADT (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Draft from St. Gambrinus. Cloudy, pale hay color in glass. Smell is french bread, lemon zest, and well kept barn. Earthy. A little funk. Taste has some pepper, but mostly a pleasant yeastiness with citrus brightness. Bitterness is there, but does not linger. Light on the palate. mansquito (6437) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours a very hazy, almost whitish golden with a white head. Aroma is slight funk with fruitiness and strange grains. I don’t really know what spelt is supposed to be about, but this comes off as a nice saison with small amounts of funk, but a hefty amount of fruitiness, with just a bit of spice.
