Hazy golden with a pillowy white head. Full of citrus fruits, yeasty spices, a bit tart, musty funk, light berry. Mild earthy and malty middle. Quite the complex brew. Good stuff, this. ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2015

Aroma: Has a fairly fruity / citrus aroma, lots of spice coming through, and some funk too
Appearance: Pours a murky yellowish-orange color with a fizzy, foamy head and heavy lace
Flavor: Gets funkier on the flavor, a mild sweetness is overrun by the bitter and funky flavors
Palate: It has a medium body, a rather fizzy carbonation, and a sharp, dry finish
This is a solid brett Saison, but not up there with the best of the style for me. The flavors feel just a bit lacking in clarity, or sharpness, or just overall excellence of execution. It is a really dry and yeasty beer overall. Hard to say what makes it good vs. great. A bit too much carbonation takes away a bit from the enjoyment as well. Still, this is an enjoyable beer.
Bottle. Slightly hazy, golden honey color. Aroma: old cheese, something sweet, like honey, fruit and fruit vinegar, strawberries, pears, wine, alcoholic esters. Taste: initial mild sweetness and maltiness, wine, champagne, alcohols, grapes, fruit and a little bitterness. Idiosynkrasie (7966) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2015
375ml bottle. Cloudy, nicely dirty, orangey golden colour with average to huge, fluffy, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Damn fucking complex and variegated, sweet-ish fruity, spicy, bretty aroma, notes of apricot and peach, mirabelle, nectarine, varied in all possible stages of maturity from unripe to overripe, therefore peppery spicy and tart components, rather ephemeral bretty notes with well-known sweet-ish bubblegum touch, hints of red berries, especially strawberry; a dusty touch of white pepper, hints of vinegar, grapes and white wine. Taste is initially dry hoppy, intensely peppery spicy yeasty, white pepper, notes of dry white wine, background-ish fruity sweetness gains weight and contributes to a harmonious general impression at least from the middle part on, likewise a plethora of yellow stone fruit flavours with mild tartness; viscid palate, lively carbonation. Saison with tremendous complexity and wicked wild and dirty touch. Boss! demmbonz (784) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Shared 750ml to chalices. Slow gush. Hazy golden. Big white pillows. Tart and fruity. Very fruity, juicy, and a huge brett presence that dries the entire mouth. Biting carbonation.

Pours a slightly cloudy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a massive 2.5 finger head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Earthy, slightly musty aroma with some funky brett, pale malt, light fruit and a strong citrus component. Some tangerine, papaya and blood orange along with farmhouse funk and an overwhelmingly strong brett presence. The musty yeast character overpowers the other notes making the aroma a bit one dimensional.
Medium bodied and with strong carbonation and prominent funky brett flavor. One dimensional with all brett and mineral flavor. Musty funky and earthy farmhouse yeast along with very subtle citrus fruit and bready yeast character. The mouthfeel is off and there is a surprising lack of complexity. Disappointing. minutemat (6045) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2015
Keg @ Port Street Beer House, Manchester. Pours murky yellowy orange, no head. Aroma is yeast and brett. Taste is smooth farmhouse cider, almost no carbonation, faint sour with no saison characteristics whatsoever. A bit mucky and possibly tastes past its best. Unless it’s actually supposed to taste like this? HonusWagner (2223) - Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2015
This on the other hand is amazing stuff. Great tartness from the yeast that is similar to classic Fantome, overall a huge improvement from the base bottle that I tried. Yorker (2050) - Holstebro, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2015
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with some sediment and a white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma and flavour are lemons, brett, pepper, and yeast - with a dry finish. wchesser (2140) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Ruddy orange. Nose of pineapple. Pineapple, peach flesh, spicy yeast esters, white pepper. Great stuff.
