ineedbeer (2154) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 12, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2017 Poured from an older 750 ml bottle with a best by date of 02/2017. Aroma is fruit with a lot of pineapple, citrus and other tropical fruit. Some light cherry notes. Ight grain notes. Moderate phenolic characteristics with peppery and herbal, woodsy notes. This beer is a gusher. Pours a hazy, copper orange with a large, rocky, fluffyy, slightly off-white head that exhibits good retention as it slowly fades into itself. Moderate lacing and no legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with light grain and caramel notes. Moderate pineapple with lighter citrus and tropical fruit. Some pear and red apple as well. Moderate phenolic notes with a bitter, herbal and woodsy note as well as some light peppery notes. Moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a saison with nice fruit notes and decent phenolics. The carbonation is a major problem though and you lose about half the bottle (be sure to open it in the sink). The phenolic note could also be better as it has the bitter, woodsy note that can come across a bit medicinal. jbruner (4745) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Gusher bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with lots of bubbly white head that dissipates slowly to leave moderate lace. Aroma is huge funky horse blanket brett, hint of lemon and grassy notes. Taste follows with a hint of spicy floral notes on the back end, but brett dominates. Dry finish, bubbly carbonation, good stuff. sokuzs1 (1356) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Aroma: spicy, barnyard, , apricot
Taste: medium bitter, leather, apricot, peach, apple Brightnessinaarhus (27) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2016
Incredible mouthfeel with a smooth carbonation and creaminess. Taste notes of heather honey with a floral, funky finish. The carbonation is what makes this beer special as the bubbles are very small and almost champagne-like. A different saison compared to the standards, but a must taste!

Orange, flat. Very bretty aroma, a bit sweet, apricot everywhere. More a clean brett, less a grunge of farmhouse funk. A bit watery. Tangy fruity taste and finish. Odd one, thinnish, could benefit from more body as an 8% beer, perhaps.
Pours yellow to orange hazy with a huge head, aroma of fruits, brett, yeast, apricot, flavor of fruits, alcohol, yeast and peach, medium bodied Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2016
Decent spicy saison, lots of sediment and foaming took away from enjoyment. Above average saison, glad I bought it in a state charging a decent rate. zizzybalubba (1869) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2016
375 mL bottle from Tasty Beverage Co., Raleigh (bottle 20075, best by April 2021). Pale yellowish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Clean aroma of lemon zest, hay, and damp leather. Taste is mildly tart with underlying spiciness, floral hops, mild barnyard, leather, and horse blanket notes. Really well done. Rask0lnikov (1299) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 4, 2016
On tap at RCBF 2016. Very hazy, pale yellow colour. Thin layer of white froth on top. Sourness, earthy notes, tangerines, oranges, flowery notes in the aroma. Hay, barnyard, hints of oranges at first. Bit yeasty, flowery in the middle. Slightly yeasty finish. Not a good brew. Or something wrong happened with the keg or while serving the beer. Taste itself is quite good. ALIBALI (2122) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2016 Viel wilde belgische Hefe dominiert so einiges bei diesem Heavyexemplar des Saisonstils. Exorbitant und speziell. Getrunken im FERMENTOREN zu Kopenhagen. Tap.
