KnutAlbert (6740) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2010
Oranges and lemons, barnyard and leather boots, sweet and sour. Boiled sweets, peaches ripening a bit too much. Quite true to type saison, but not really outstanding.

Leighton (19596) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle at Funky 6. Pours semi-clear gold with a moderate, creamy head. Malts, fruit and brett make up the aroma. Quite sweet with moderate acidity, malts, yeast and some funk. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes crisp and refreshing with light tartness.

eaglefan538 (3035) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle from bockyhorsey. Many thanks, my friend. The pour was as expected, hazy orangey. The head was weak and the lacing too. The aroma was spicey sweet fruits. Flavor followed, lighter fruits on top (pears and peaches), slight lactic sour touch to the finish, but this thing was lacking carbonation and (faint hop? or some spice?) zing. Needed more something. Thanks, Bill!

teorn88 (7301) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2010
75cl bottle. Pours a hazy light amber color with a medium off-white head. Good lacing foam. Aroma is simply stunning: strong and intens fruityness (apples and peaches) and funkyness with a decise presence of spices. The funky presence tends to the acidic, remembering of some lambic. The taste is as complex as the aroma: strong funkyness sorrounded by some maltiness and a touch from the hops. The funkyness give a sort of sourness again. Fruity and grassy notes in the background. Mostly sweet finish. Palate is full with good carbonation. Overall, a splendid and complex brew, remembering of some sours/lambics. Great.
