Bottles from CAH and Capone’s. Pours gold with white head. Nose is yeasty spice, funky, hopcitric. Tastes of funky yeasty esters, more funk and horseblanket and female gymnast feet than the 2008 offering, and an overall more complex experience overall. This one is very good, and kicks up the living organism count a notch. This one harbors more live organisms than a typhoid infested lady-of-the-evening. Hair6a11 (1481) - Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle ; Pour is a clear light gold - frothy white head initially with mild retention. Heavy on the carbonation. Brett, Barnyard, and lemon rinds on the nose.Tingling sensation on the tongue; a spice note comes through, a dash of funk, lemon peel, citrus - this brew is light, crisp, palatable, and quite nice albeit on the simple side.

Lightly hazy yellow pour with a nice foamy head. Aroma is light funk, barnyard, yeast, light fruit and grain. Nice funky flavor with lemon peel, light fruit, some sweetness. Good beer. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2011
Cloudy straw yellow with almost no head. Sweet pineapple aroma along with citrus, fruits and spicy yeast. Good lively, prickly mouthfeel with pretty much sweetness and suggestions of sorbet pineapple. Didn’t really find any Brett here. spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2011

09 vintage. Pours a deep golden color with a decent sized off white foamy head. Notes of apple juice, canned pineapple, yarn, lemon rind, dough, honey, and spice. Creamy mouthfeel decent length finish. BeerMePodcast (96) - Palm Desert, California, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Nice, tight carbonation (not the fizzbomb that the Inferno is) with a medium head that lasts. Nice funky, somewhat spicy and citrus-sour aroma. The barnyard flavor comes out a little more in the taste with a great, warming, spicy finish with a touch of helping bitterness. Very nice and more depth than I was expecting for a saison.

0.75l - Lively carbonation for Lost Abbey, hazy orange liquid. Bretty nose, but less so on palate. Yeast was dominant flavor. Solid nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2010
750ml bottle. 2009 bottle drank in late November 2010. Murky orange-tan color. Fluffy, foamy off-white head. Floral barnyard hops and some mild funk, nails the aroma. Has aged quite nicely. Sour and funky, with some oddly pungent yeast and malt tones. Not really authentic tasting, but still pretty nice. The Brett isn’t super apparent, but certainly adds some nice complexity. A really nice beer, well done. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2010
Golden of color with a nice off white head. Nice aroma of malt, coriander and Brett. Flavor of sweet malt, spice and some Brett.
