beer-yum (1472) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 21, 2016
Funky floral farmhouse aroma in an amber pour. Laid back flavours of fruit and spice are both complex and subtle. A deliciously different take on the style.

Oakes (16105) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle. Effervescent light brownish-amber. Aroma is heavily yeasty, and this is before pouring the sediment. On the palate it is still yeasty though less so, with some herbal hop and a touch of buggy complexity coming through.

M_Sack (637) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Orange/gold, billowing white head. Massive aroma which can be enjoyed from 1/2 metre away - pineapple, melon, lemon, orange and lime juice, barnyard funk and some cereal malt. Flavours of lemon and lime juice, white wine vinegar, alcohol which mellows as it warms, Brett notes and a strong peppery finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (2938) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle discounted at Tanakaya. Cherry wood brown with a finger of beige foam. Aromas of oak, light horse blanket, earth and caramel. A brown saison with brett I am assuming. Soft carbonation (probably due to being an older bottle, although the bottle says good until November 2016). As it warms more funk comes out, cobwebs and wet hay. Not bad, but more of a wild ale rather than a saison in my opinion. Not bad, but not up to par with their other releases.

Hard to properly enjoy, and pour, due to over-carbonation. Prickly and overly gassy mouthfeel overpowers the the apparent ’elegant’ and ’delicate’ flavours others are talking about. Although there is a nice, citrusy, slightly funky saison lying somewhere beneath the bubbles, this is a very hard to ignore flaw. I think the marketing of La Sirene as different to typical breweries, with their backgrounds in winemaking and ’science’, and their ’classy’ bottles and labels cloud peoples judgment and leads them to be more generous in their reviews of the beers. They make reasonably good saisons but are overrated and not as accomplished as they are often presented. 10 out of 10 for marketing though.

Definitely not my favourite Saison, I would go back for a second round that's for sure. It was sour, but with a lesser sense of... Quality, I'm sure for some this is a real hit, but for me... No, sorry.

Pours well. Tight white head, golden, well carbonated. Smells clean. Tastes of horse blanket. Dry mouthfeel with some residual funk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muggus69 (2229) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2015
375mL bottle from Slowbeer. Enjoy before Nov 2016 Odd noise on opening - like the releasing of demons or something. Anyhow, she’s a lively one - pours out a big billowy white foam atop a bright hazy orange-straw body - much the same as their regular Saison. The two beers take different roots once you get a whiff - funky fruit aroma, those tropical notes you often get with certain strains of Brett - pineapple, papaya & paw paw with grapefruit rind, an underlying hay-like cereal maltiness in there too. Dry and well attentuated without being chalky or abrasive, or watery. Moderate carbonation, quite fine. There’s something really elegant about the body of this one - whilst their regular Saison is quite in your face (as much as a Saison can be, and in a good way), this is restrained, somewhat delicate yet no loss complex or delicious - citrus rind (almost kaffir lime-like), subtle paw paw & guava notes, faintly leafy, touch of old cheese, nice lightly toasted cereal malt note, hay, bitterness with an earthy note lingering, a bit of citric acid there too. Intriguing, funky yet restrained, highly enjoyable overall.

wvhoran (455) - Tasmania, - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a huge off-white head. The aroma has citrus and stonefruit (apricot) with yeast. The palate is light and lively with strong lemon and yeast upfront, and mild pepper and earthiness. Very nice.
