750mL, Bottle No 5B 7665, Best by 12/2016 from Olive Tree Market in OB, $11.19.Effervescent medium gold with a big three finger pillowy off-white head with great retention. Definitely has some fruity pineapple brett that is a little sour, but not crazy so thus far in the nose--the large head could be dampening the aroma, though. There is also some dusty white pepper and the earthy manure notes that seem pretty signature to these guys (at least the other two beers I’ve had) are present, but more hanging out in the background with some mineral notes. Flavor didn’t seem quite as bretty or fruity, and the earthy rustic and pepper notes get much stronger. Flavor also is showing some alcohol as well, though no stronger than the stated 8% ABV. Bone dry finish, bitterness peaked at a Medium body with high carbonation. Pretty tasty, need to pick up a couple more bottles of these
Small glass from a big bottle courtesy of True Bearing Alehouse. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of brett with fruit and spice. No sourness. Bitter finish. Quick3Beers (1359) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 12, 2017
Pours a lovely amber, leaning toward copper, thick head. Smells slightly barnyard funk with a very nice yeastiness. Flavor is insipid, straightforward offputting soapy bitterness does not belong, towards the finish there's a hint of the spiciness that the aroma leaned toward. Good beer to look at and smell, then suffer through or dump I guess, could've been a lot better, going to check the bottle to see how old. rosenbergh (11753) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2017
375 ml bottle. #13030. BB 11/2019. From firmabier.com.stevoj (5432) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Cloudy bright golden color with a huge white foamy head.
Earth, basement, mild caramel, yeast, green apple and some spicy notes in the aroma.
The flavor is yeast, alcohol, spices, mild brett, some sweetness, mild bitterness and faint notes of green apples. I just booked the accommodation for next May in Hood River, OR.
Rating #5209, bottle from Douglas88. Active bottle, a little but of foaming, caught most in a tulip. Light Holden and hazy, huge head, subsides to one finger. Brett dominates the aroma, light, lemony, bread. Taste is also light, citrus, effervescent, grassy, floral. Nice flavors throughout. Mild tartness, but doesn’t interfere with the pure Saison notes. Thanks, Doug! PowY (982) - AUSTRIA - JUN 25, 2017

Medium to full body with a soft carbonation, a medium sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavor is lightly malty, biscuit, honey, orange, spices, tart fruits, very light brett notes.

0,375l bottle at home at home shared with Powy. BB 11/2017. yellow hazy color, small white head. smells dusty, caramel, bit parfumy, light joghurt. nice smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of caramel, spices, bit citric, ripe fruits, some brett, tobacco, bit grassy, hints of joghurt. finishes lightly sweet with notes of brett, ripe fruits and tobacco notes. decent one overall, good complexity but a bit on the sweet side, not totally convincing taste wise, but overall quite enjoyable if a bit heavy. caesar (7170) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2017
Bottle from Uiltje beershop a while ago, No 88841 BB 07/2020, 33 cl sample (all I could rescue out of a big gushing 75 cl bottle). Hazy golden color, short frothy head. Aroma is fruity of peach and apricot, some funky bubblegum and horseblanket, slight barnyard grain. Funky and quite peppery spicy, bit bubblegum sweetness, malty body. Considering the price and the fact half the bottle was spilled, major minus points. hman43 (1747) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Golden in appearance with a white head. Wheat, bubble gum, candy- like, slightly tart. EvanFriend (627) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Slightly fruity, dry, a whole lot of horsey funk. The funk is the main flavor here, but there’s enough fruit and spice to keep it interesting. Excellent. disfit (36) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2017
Soft tart flavor. Pineapple? Citrus? I cannot place it, makes it very interesting to drink.
