From tap. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild estery, light fruity. Sweet, funky and mild hops fruity. Lingering retty and crisp hoppy. Smooth and funky far finish. Bitter and dry. brontebeach (191) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle from Brew & Co. this is a fabulous farmhouse ale. The greater than normal sweetness from this rye saison makes it very enjoyable. Highly rate this one. jgb9348 (6521) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Ridiculously hazy golden coloured body with a straw glow along with a thick, slow-dying off-white head, about seven centimetres tall. Aroma of grass, hay, brett, yeast, bread, light hops, citrus, apples and some subtle alcohol. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Strong rich flavour of grass and hay with some light hops, bread, yeast, coriander seed but the alcohol still shows through, along with some fruit and mild sweetness at the end. Aftertaste is quite dry and herbal with the grass and the yeast really coming through with some wheat and citrus flavours at the tail end. Overall, a good rich flavour with a nice yeastie complexity with the dryness you’d expect from a saison, but more hops than typical and a bit more sweetness as well. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 01-July-2016 for US$13,75 sampled at home in Washington on 04-November-2016. trapped (3677) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 23, 2016
Draught @ Malt and Mold. Milky orange with small forthy whitish head, citrus aroma, medium carbonation, thich body, medium bitter orange peel taste, long bitter finish. Nice dank IPA, Brett not being very noticeable. Oakes (19045) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Hazy yellow. Thin head, floral, honeyish, apricotty, with a little bit yeasty, and this comes through in the fizzy body. Has a fairly yeasty, dry, floral and fruity character. Medium bitterness.

Bottle - Grassy, funky citrus and creamy notes. Cloudy light gold with a decent white head. Sweet creamy and funky with a light bitter finish. Neat. mcberko (19227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy opaque golden yellow with a lovely large foamy white head. Aroma brings out lovely rustic farmhouse notes, some spicy rye, and light fruitiness. Flavour is very fruity, with loads of stone fruits (especially peach), along rustic farmhouse notes and a very yeasty finish. High carbonation, but it’s fitting. Super fruity on the finish. Nice stuff. beerplace (2158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
750ml bottle at Matt’s. Aroma is hoppy wih bretts. Taste is bretts, hoppy bitterness, crispy. Same aftertaste. Very good balanced beer. fiulijn (21470) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s j12601 (13205) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Cloudy blond color with large head. Powerful aroma, the spicy yeast blends perfectly with a citrus character from the hops. The mouthfeel is bone dry, but also largely carbonated, and rather smooth; the yeast character is extreme, it brings spices, and some bitter orange peel; but unfortunately also a strong bitter vegetable character that in the final is disturbing.
I don’t like the final, but this is a beer with a lot of character, and another batch may actually turn out very well.
Bottle at James’ cellar cleaning tasting. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Musk on the nose, soft and fuzzy, a touch of spicy citrus. Medium bodied, soft musk, a touch of earthy bitterness. Lots of esters, fuzzy and musky. Tasty.
