Bottle from lukaduke, thanks again. Pours a beautiful burnt orange with a white head. Has a beautiful citrus and fruit aroma that I get with most Belgian farmhouse. Has an amazing citrus taste with a hint oak. Has a clean finish with no bad after taste. 77ships (9774) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2016

Bottle shared with the boys. Aroma is pure funky bliss. Barnyard, oak barrel, slight bandaid, and some white wine. Pours straw yellow to orange with nice bubbles and a big fizzy head. Glad this was cold because a slow foam started coming out the top as soon as it was open. Potential gusher. Taste was saison bliss. Barnyard, Niagara grape, brett funk, roquefort cheese, and earthy oak. Nothing is too sweet or bitter or sour or mellow. This is the best saison I have ever had. I could drink this every day and die happy. bytemesis (8348) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle, Batch #8. Pours hazy orange, large white head, good residual and lacing. Aroma is very Bretty, clean funk, damp basement, dust, oak tannins. Flavor is musty, dusty, medium funk, clean though, no cheese whatsoever, dry, almost a fruitiness, oak tannins, low acidity with just a tiny hint of tartness. Light body, soft champagnelike carbonation. Well, holding this one for three years definitely worked out OK. This is a lovely beer. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2013

Bottle purchased at the brewery. This is delicious and I wish I bought more. Pours golden straw colored with white foamy head. Aroma is lemony funk, peach, vanilla, lacto, biscuit maltyness. Taste is nicely tart and moderately sweet with fruity notes and a light spicy hop backbone. AMAZING. Marheb (5749) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Quelle belle créature! Elle me rappelle une certaine Russian river au nez et à la première gorgée. Foin mouillé, agrumes surettes, vin blanc et cuir s’amusent dans ce délicieux liquide. JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Golden pour with plenty of big white head. Aroma is light, brett and stone fruit. Flavor is sour brett, fruit, and yeast. bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
Rating #2483 - 2016.05.03 - Bottle at Bru Pours a clear golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma is oak, floral, estery, Brett. Medium-high carbonation, medium alcohol warmth, decent body. Palate holds more barrel character, with loads of funky Brett and sweet fruity notes. Lovely. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Initial bottle at Three Penny Taproom. Huge thanks to Lukaduke for also sharing a bottle later that evening. Pours a clear golden color with very nice carbonation and a good eggshell head. Sticky lacing.
The nose carries a distinct saison profile underneath a bit of acidity and a good dose of funk. The flavor brings the acidity more to the front. This immediately reminded me of some of the De La Senne saisons blended with lambic. Fairly similar to some batches of Saison Vautour as well. Hay, lemon, straw, faint grain, and earthy funk all blend incredibly well with the backing acidity.
Body is light and very crisp. Smooth lactic finish. Very inviting. An excellent beer.
