Hazy golden orange pour with an aroma of funk, citrus, spice, and bread. Well-blended flavors of tartness, citrus, spice, and bread. Nicely balanced beer that does not overwhelm. Thanks to richlikebeer, Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
3 nov 3012, tap at Lost Abbey. Dirty, light yellow, faintly cloudy. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Nice, soft, sweet lemon saison. Okay. gorditoabd (636) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle from... somewhere. Bought this over the summer and let it sit. Now I’m drinking it. Pours hazy golden orange, minimal white foam, decent amount of white foam head that laces down to just a frosting on top with some continued bubbling activity thereafter. Aromas are mostly mild funk mixed with some hints of peach pulp/orange zest and mild spice in there. Taste is really nice and smooth. Clean, early sweet funk, followed by middle pepperyness, followed by a funky tangy finish. Like many of the other raters I agree it is all a bit understated, but there is a balance here that does a lot for me. The late and lasting fromage quality is endearing as well. Coats the inner cheeks and tongue nicely. This is a good beer. Not knock-your-socks off or anything, and yes, I’m sure it is overpriced, but still, gotta appreciate the quality. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2012

Appearance: The body is a light amber/orange with almost no head even directly after the pour and there is no carbonation in the body.
Aroma: Slightly funky, with sweet orange and light tart.
Taste: The aroma matches the flavor very well, the brett is light on this with sweet citrus being the main flavor, very light tart, and a slightly spicy finish. This is very mild for a Brett beer.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: This is a very mild Brett beer and I think that’s why this is getting such low overall ratings, that and the price is a bit high. This is a solid beer, but for the price I can buy a 4 pack of Rayon Vert which is much better.
Attractive deep golden pour. Nose is floral, light pear fruits, subtle phenolic spices very nice but delicate aroma. Flavor is sweet fruity pears, light spices, some mustiness, medium light body. Medium light bitterness. Light carbonation. Finishes medium sweet. This had no off flavors but really quite boring.

bottle sampled at my California motorhome tour. Bought at the source... Pours golden clear with a tiny to no head. Aroma of hay, malt and a tiny hint of banana. Medium body with steady mouthfeel all the way from beginning to end, sweet honey like malt flavours. Not bad. RasmusOtt (2841) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2012
Pours hazy golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of sweet pear, sweet citrus, melon and other tropical fruits. Brett and coriander as well. Taste is weak brett, hay, sweet citrus, pear, mellow peach and sweeter belgian stuff (some spices) . A bit messy .. Reynolds314 (3470) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Should call this mo betta needs more bretta. Really subtle brett characteristics and the beer tastes like a traditional saison. Tastes nice and fruity and spicy but really minimal funk or tartness. SamP01 (668) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2012
12.7 oz.bottle. Pours a golden amber with a small short lived white head. Aroma of biscuit malt, sour ripe white grapes, fruity and some Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet tart and sour fruity flavors, slightly champagne like, Belgian yeast. Palate is a medium body, crisp nicely balanced sweet and tart on the tongue, with moderate carbonation. Finish is a combination of sweet biscuit malt, wild Belgian yeast, with some ripe sour and tart fruitiness of apples and peaches. Almost reminds me of trippel. Overall has a nice flavor and nicely balanced. A well crafted and flavorful brew. Nicely done.

Bottle shared amongst friends. Compared to the New Belgium take on this beer I’d have to say that Lost Abbey completely trumps them. Not super sour or funky but just the right balance. The NB version was like rancid old milk.
