Draught. Pours a lightly cloudy straw yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is yeast funk, earth, and a little citrus. Taste is lemon, yeast, spice, some grain, and a very small amount of pepper. Dry finish. Tart and acidic. Medium body. Average carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel with an almost wheat-like texture. Korcz (3372) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Najlepszy saison jaki piłem. Owocowa kwasowość, potężne Bretty w aromacie. Coś pięknego. Thanks, Eric! Sudz4Dayz (136) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2017
750ml bottle. Pours golden yellow, slight haze, nice carbonation, foamy white head leaving good lacing. Smells sour, sweet, smooth light hops and white wineyness. Tastes sour, tart, sweet, smooth crispiness and a slight hoppy aftertaste. Great drinkability. Smooth mouthfeel, full for a sour. Lovely. beerplace (1664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2017

Fresh bottle (thx, stoned99!). Bottled on 2016-09-15. Pours a murky pale golden with a white head. Aroma is bretts, fermented veggies notes. Taste is sour, pretty similar to the aroma with some very slight ascorbic notes. Good stuff.
Aged bottle (thx, Jonathan G.!). Bottled on 2015-06-18. Aroma is more funky, acidic, some slight sweetness. Taste is more smooth and funk, no ascorbic and fermented veggies notes.
I do prefer fresh bottle to the aged one.

Highly carbonated. Funky and spicy aroma like one of the best Orvals; but the flavor is less funky than the younger bottle, it’s more astringent, less dynamic.
I prefer the younger bottle.

Hazy blond color with green hue. The aroma is intense, spicy yeast, funky, with an earthy character, some sweat, almost manure. Dry but smooth mouthfeel; nice spicy flavor, a bit funky, with a nice character of citrus peel; moderate bitterness, but well balanced.

Sampled at the StL RB gathering. It poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was somewhat peppery with touches of banana, lemon zest, cloves and bubble gum. The taste was of cloves with peppery notes, bubble gum and coriander.
Sampled at Gregwilsonstl’s tasting. Hazed yellow golden. A soapy white head. Spicy herbal hopped aroma. This is pleasant. A herbal fresh dry hopped effect. Lemon along with those hops. Floral, spicy, and earth. Really nice. A dry beer.vyvvy (6460) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2016

Sampled at Rories house. Hazy golden with a big fluffy white head. A big funky brett aroma with malts. The brett is huge. Not a lot of complexity but the brett carries it.
It pours golden orange with a white head. The aroma has saison earthiness, herbal hops, dry stone fruit and light citrus. It has a medium light sharp body with prickly carbonation. The taste has some sourness, light funk, earthiness, bugs, pineapple and dried fruit. Pretty nice.

Sampled at STL RB Gathering - Pours hazy golden/yellow with a white head. The aroma has powder, barnyard, gentle spice, saison yeast and pepper. Medium soft body with semi-soft carbonation. The flavor begins with aroma notes with more citric sourness, spice, lemon peal, coriander and chalk. The finish is very dry and powdery. Very enjoyable saison.
