Hazy saturated blonde with a good head. Huge gusher on opening...intensely fruity aromas featuring all the berries in the world. Low carbonation, everything left tje liquid on opening! Medium body, sweet, berries, finishes a bit sweet for a Saison. Lacking complexity a bit but nonetheless a good effort. seth_lfod (325) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 2, 2014
750 into HF stemware. Clear golden pour with a giant head. Aroma is vinous grapes, brett funk, chardonnay, citrus fruits. Taste is phenomenal... Again with the grapes and white wine, brett funk with a slight peppery characteristic. Nice dry finish, man, I would drink this all day everyday. hopwine (670) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours a beautiful, glowing extremely hazy straw with a dense, cakey, bone-white head. Aroma is moderate funk, light sharp minerality, pear, lemon and red apple. Flavor begins with sharp citric acidity which gives way to a formidable wave of funk, ending in with slightly underripe pineapple and a very dry finish. Complex and funky without being overwhelming, balanced without being boring. I can’t think of anything that could improve this guy. OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014

A - Pours cloudy with a glowing burnt orange color. A tall concrete head that just sits there and melts at a very slow pace. Large sheets of lacing coat the inside of the glass.
S - Big Brett bouquet, pungent citrus with layers of earthy funk, a quick swirl brings out potent tropical fruit, pineapple, papaya, mango, lots of dusty grass aromas, spicy, limes, candy malt sweetness, old muted honey grahams.
T - Zesty limes and a multitude of tropical fruits, sharp and acidic as the nose describes, dry and spicy in the middle, with a timid and unsweet tart candy bite, limes continue along with some salty notes. Funk, earth and grass are present but take a backseat to the spiciness and the citrus acidity. A kiss of fruity sweetness emerges right before the dry finish.
M - Soft micro carbonation that stings the tongue, then turns smooth. Medium/full weight but does not deter from the beer.
They did not hold back on the brett for this beer. It’s like a roller coaster of aromas and flavors that change by the minute. At first pour it’s bright and fruity, then it goes to earthy funk, then to spicy and dry, then to grassy, then dusty, and then it foes back through the whole wheel with morphed characteristics.
If you love Brettanomyces, I mean REALLY love it, then this beer is for you.

Bottle (750ml): light haze, deep gold and medium head. Wonderfully funky lift. Brett, citrus (overripe orange), malt, fruit and dusty. Dry, moderately sour and medium bitterness. High CO2. Medium weight to long. Very sour. Builds. Almost like a sour rather than a saison. Big citrus, funky, and phenolic.
Very old would. Rustic. Loads of flavor.

Bottle. Pours a radiant gold with an enormous rocky off white head. Carbonation is visible throughout and the head leaves tons of lace. Aroma is spicy, floral hops, honey, lemon and musty funk. Taste is fruity up front. Lots of apricot and citrus. Dusty funk notes on the finish and a surprising alcohol punch. Palate is surprisingly smooth with light carbonation and a quick clean finish. This is really nice. jrob21 (3690) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Oh man. A really nice citrusy and wild drink to pair well with some spicy barbecue or another rich meaty meal. Perfect way to ring in the new year. Big citrus flavor and a nice wild yeast overture. Really good. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Hazy golden with a big white head that collapses pretty quickly. Strong fruity and brett aroma. Taste is medium sour lemon, lots of brett, some dusty funk, but very dangerously drinkable. Fantastic Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
This beer is lovely, thanks to Oakes for the find :) it has a lot of Turkish dried apricot character in all respects. The color, the juicy middle, the fructose finish, the balancing acidity. The lively hop and brett add extra dimensions, allowing both to sneak into tasty and proper pockets of happiness. The brett is apparent most in the aroma, and as the palate attenuates, in the finish. The natural lemon candy and chewing stick of licorice sweetness is one of the many things that make this beer outstandingly characterful and multi-dimensional. The hop is another. Gorgeous.

Bomber. Huge gusher. Nice murky orange pour with a huge head. Tart, sour lemon, wheat - slightly dry on the tongue. Really nice!
