tdmuel's rating

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Pours a gorgeous hazy straw/yellow color with a huge bubbly white head. Very floral and spicy on the nose, wet grass, peppery, nice bit of brett funk, and some nice fruity esters. Nice bretty lemony taste up front, very floral, some piney hops, saison funk, and a nice peppery spice. Delicious, nice bretty funk goes great with the peppery and grassy spice.

Bottle purchased at Gezellig. Skunky, off aroma - not pleasant. Pours a opaque light golden yellow, little head retention but highly carbonated. Taste is primarily wild yeast - lots of weird, funky flavors - and savory with a little bit of vanilla and nutmeg at the end. Certainly and interesting beer that makes my palate do a double take - to be honest I think an overall 3.8 rating is low given the taste because it is so unjque, but the skunky aroma unfortunately lowers this rating

Poured from bomber into tulip. Pours a hazy gold with tall white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is a wheat, touch of spice and a bit of funk. It’s very spicy on the palate - pretty sharp on the tongue. Not my favorite saison, but certainly not bad either.

Bottle from Beer Store pours hazy bright yellow with two finger head. Smells of funk, citrus, spice, cow piss and yeast. Earthy. It’s very spicy. Chamomile and rosemary are definitely in there. It took me a while to get used to this one but it’s wild.

I'm pretty sure I had this one. Definitely very saison-like without a doubt. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

_angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2015
Draught @ All In Beer Fest 2015. Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly fruity, slightly spicy and rustic with crackers, sourdough bread, cereal, red pears, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, tiny fruity and spicy phenolic. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly dry and light to medium bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, sourdough bread, cereal, red pears, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns, coriander, lemon zest and hints of rubber. Bit unrefined but overall refreshing and decent.
