Tasting at Matt’s, batch LS230088, bb July 2016mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Hazy blond color. Penetrating aroma, a lot of strong honey (eucalyptus, linden), and some spicy yeast, perfumy candlewax; original. Too much carbonation, probably too much bottle refermentation, and the mouthfeel is very dry; spicy character, strong, and woody final.
A bit chaotic, but interesting.
375mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out rustic farmhouse notes, light sheep / horse blanket, and dry biscuity notes. Flavour is complex and well-balanced, with rustic farmhouse notes, a touch of funk, and a dry biscuity finish. Really nicely constructed. Complex and authentic. Excellent.

Slightly hazy and a bit tan. Not much head. The aroma is a bit funky, touch of brett. Bit tart, but again some dirty funk. Just not clean enough. Their stuff is usually better. Ferris (15316) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle - Sweet, flowery with some stone notes. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Light sweet and grassy. Very effervescent. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle at Max & Jess’s Taco Party! Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Musk and yeast on the nose, a soft bit of citrus. Medium bodied, spicy citrus, tart and bright. Musk and yeast into the finish.

0.75cl Bottle: brought to the Belgian Beer Board Pre-Brugge beer festival bottle exchange by Filip, thanks mate.
An Australian Saison, what a surprise to see this in Brugge.
I loved it.
Misty golden body (it had been poured a few times before I got my hands on it) with a white covering, I managed to get just under a half-pint into my glass: didn’t want to appear greedy did I?
Yeasty farmyard; proper Saison smells in other words. Sour yeastiness in the mouth along with a sweet undertone that blend together giving a truly memorable experience and a wonderful taste.
So different to anything else at the bottle swap: some cracking brews, but this and the Ommegang 3 Philosophers really stood out for me in their classiness, even though they are worlds apart in styles. mkel07 (5983) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2012
375ml bottle. Very frothy with a mountainous head of compact white foam above a hazy apricot coloured beer. Tart sour aroma with a flavour to match. Very lively and zingy in the mouth and it certainly wakes up the taste buds. TimE (5817) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 17, 2015
Frothy white head. Very like yellow color, almost white. Very light dry nose with lots of funk, pepper and lemon. The mouth is very light with lots of ton pepper notes, fairly hoppy, very dry. Nice lingering hoppy mouth with horse blanket, funk and pepper. Fantastic. Rarely see a new world this level. stevoj (5045) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 12, 2015
Excellent saison. Pours out a mildly cloudy golden with abundant fluffy head. Head sustains throughout. Flowery, savory aroma, taste is hay, grass, meadow and some coriander. Mildly savory finish. Could be straight out of Belgium. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 18, 2015
Bottle. Nice stuff. Dry, aroma is good, straw, cherry, bit of booze, grainy. Nice.
