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 (6089) - 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 isnt super apparent, but certainly adds some nice complexity. A really nice beer, well done.

kennydiaz (358) - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Pours a nice golden color with a lot of carbonation. It has a nice sour banana taste a little earthy with hints of citrus.

Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Pours a slightly hazed golden straw color with a medium white head. Aroma is pepper, wild yeasts, grass, lemon, zest, wheat, coriander. Flavor is a light funky brett, spices, lemon zest, grass, wheat, very enjoyable and has appropriate carbonation. I prefer this over the non brett spiked version for sure, really pleasant beer.

phaleslu (9922) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2010
750 ml bottle from Friar Tuck in Savoy. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a finger-thick frothy white head. Aroma of brett, funk, lemon citrus, pears, wheat, and white grapes. Flavor is more sweet than tart, which was a little disappointing based on the nose, but still very nice. Medium bodied, with frothy carbonation and a dry, yeasty mouthfeel. I would have liked an older (i.e. non-brett) version to try along side this one for comparison.

abemorsten (3593) - Mostery, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2010
Shared bottle courtesy of Gunnar. Clear golden with a white film. Good lacing. Spicy Belgian yeast notes on the nos. Herbs and flowers also present. Acidic, sweet, bitter flavors with alcohol and Belgian yest spices prominent. Dry, medium bodied and with a lively carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

Ungstrup (36427) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2010
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt, brettanomyces, lacto, and yoghurt. The flavor is sweet with nots of matl, brettanomyces, and yoghurt, leading to a dry brety finish.
