gyllenbock (10025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2015
Sample at Sour Sunday 2015.
A bit hazy golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of funk, citrus, yeast, orange and light spices. Quite a lot of carbonation and with a dry finish.

Macon, Ga. - Just Tap’d Growler - 12 oz bottle. Hazy, light golden pour, soft snow white head that leaves a few legs of lacing. Aroma has a nice hearty sour essence to it with some light lemony accents, some grainy spiciness. Flavor is solid with some lemony sourness, a touch of yeast, some light sweet tart candy sourness. Mouthfeel has a nice dryness to it. Pretty solid. caesar (7392) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
Tap @ Beer Temple, small sample. Slight hazy yellow color, medium creamy white head. Aroma of pineapple, peppery yeast, slight farmhouse funk, hay. Bit dry in taste, slight sweet, slight funk. Decent stuff. Borresteijn (7595) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
On tap at Beer Temple. Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of sweet spicy yeast, dry pale malts, some grassy hops, bit of citrus. Flavour is medium sweet, floral, pale malts, grass, citrus, decent bitter finish with some sweet spicy yeast. Light bodied. OK. Reynolds314 (3472) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Nice saison but not quite up to prairie standards. Grassy hoppy black pepper and light citrus and wheaty funk. Good stuff

Draft at Beer Temple. Aroma of dry grass and yeast. Tastes likewise, dry, yeasty and fruity. Very Belgian, but the Belgians themselves can do this better. drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Originally sampled via bottle, June 2014, thanks to Brent - have had a few times since. In general, a delicious, crushable lightly funky saison. Golden pour with a nice off-white head, good lacing. Nice aroma, mild funk, Belgian yeast, doughy, lemon, mild pepper. Nice flavor, just a hint at tartness and funk, clean doughy malts, light pepper and lemon peel. Tasty. Could throw back all day. orvalgold (49) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Poured slight hazy blonde color, with a intense head at first pour quickly dissipates. The aromatics are spice driven with a subtle fruity note. Slight floral spice, light apricot, melon. Creamy mouthfeel that finishes semi dry. No hop aromatics however a yeast hop bite lingers slightly. andyhwcinc (1886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home knowing that vacation in a warm climate starts in less than a week. Appearance is a cloudy slightly dark gold with a light white bubbly head. Aroma of pepper, orange peel, light yeast, overall pretty small smell. Taste is heavy on the yeast, with a thick consistency, light sour, dry finish, it’s good but doesn’t offer too much in my opinion. Not bad though. Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 31, 2015
from Erzbierschof - hazy golden-blond beer with a solid white foam left, long lasting; funky and yeasty aroma with fresh notes of yellow fruits; medium-bodied, decently sour, solid carbonation and lively palate; very dry and bitter/sour fruity and yeasty finish - straightforward and charming
