hawthorne00 (3810) - Melbourne, - SEP 4, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2016 Bottle, 12C. Amber with a fluffy off-white head that collapses to a coat that lasts. Aroma of apples, pears, light toffee, musty dough, pepper, balsamic vinegar. Very overcarbonated mouthfeel (second glass poured from unstoppered bottle poured with a huge head but then was fine). Fruit and caramel sweetness, applish tartness, modest bitterness, very dry indeed with some spices and a slight bretty smack at the end. Can see great from here. Rustic and (carbonation issues aside) good. [3.6]

Small bottle, batch 1, bb 11/16 . Clear reddish amber with a half inch head. Light toffee, balsamic, autumnal fruit. Still far too carbonated, but again settles down after a while Hmm, maybe there was no brett. Seeing this being cleared some places, this suggests worth seeing what it’s like in a decade.

Hazy red/brown, very ’excited’. Aroma of funky stone fruit. Taste starts off quite mild and malty, followed up by lots of tart sourness. Very cleansing on the palate.

mrjez (575) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market, shared @ Lingua tasting. Pours a deep hazy red with nice lacing. Light Belgian yeast aroma, a touch of vinegar sour, lactic acid, a hint of fruit. Flavour of red fruits, some lactic yoghurt sourness, quite mild like the smell. It’s balanced well, medium feel, easy to drink. A tad reserved overall, but a good entrance point for those looking to try a Belgian red/brown. Lacks the complexity of their fine saisons.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4971) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2016
A crystal clear reddish brown with a sharp oak and berry aroma. Light bodied, tart, lactic, candyish with a berry caramel flavor. Nice but more yoghurty and with less depth than the Belgian version.

Muggus69 (2363) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2016
375mL bottle from Slowbeer. Bottled July 2016 Very much red body, slight haze, holds an off-white head. Aroma reveals layers of cherry, plum, dark toffee malts, biscuit, touch of citrus & yoghurty funk - quite unique. Palate starts quite full, acidity & some tannin kicks in & grabs hold, drying proceedings out; lively carbonation. Malty upfront - toffee, nuts - then fruitiness kicks in - red plums, sour cherry, touch of wood - then some funk - natural yoghurt, hard cheese, good kick of acidity on the finish. Saison meets Oud Bruine - very good

Bottle recommends to pour carefully for good reason - you’ll be greeted by a monster head as I was in my haste. Whilst a rich, smokey, malt flavour hits straightaway, the beer is comparatively light and easy to drink. Nice. NB: There’ll also be a couple of tasty floaties waiting to be munched on at the bottom of your glass.

Bottle from Plonk. clear brown pour with off white head. Saison yeast aromas with brown malt, hint of chocolate. Carbonation could be a bit higher. Nice interesting saison.
