Piana obfita, trwała, oczka z czasem powiększają się do dużych, zdobi szkło. Kolor jasno słomkowy mętny. Aromat są bretty, kwaskowość, białe winogrona, przyjemny. Smak słodowość, pszeniczna chropowata pełnia, nuty dzikie wyraźne ale nie dominujące, minimalna owocowa kwaskowatość, goryczka zauważalna pasuje, delikatne utlenienie w karton. Piwo złożone, zbalansowane, smaki się przenikają, pełne ale dzięki dzikości i kwaskowatości mocno pijalne nie męczące. Bardzo Dobre

500ml bottle, 2015 vintage. Brett funk aroma with notes of wheat, rye, grassy hops and a hint of lemony citrus. Pours cloudy, pale golden colored with one finger of white head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with Brett funk, wheat and rye malt flavors with a very lively mouthfeel. Finishes dry and smooth with lemony citrus and grassy hop flavors. Pretty good sour.

Super hazy golden and orange coloured body with a nice, two to three centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of super dry malts, a bit of grass, hay, coriander seed, yeast and some light sugars from fruits. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertively dry flavours at first with a big dose of yeast and hay, coupled with some light hops, a bit of light fruits such as peaches and apples and ending with more dry hoppy elements and a dose of grain. Aftertaste shows almost exclusively dry notes with a lot of hay, grass, coriander seed and yeast as part of that package. Interestingly enough, I don't taste any real funk or brett, and only some of the dry and plainish yeast notes. Overall, again, another way overrated beer by XXX (insert over-hyped brewery here), and while it was a fine beer and drinkable, it is a plain saison, no brett, no funk, and nothing special in the slightest. Definitely do not go out of your way to find and/or sample this, unless you are a beer person who loves names. I sampled this sixteen ounce pour on draught at Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia on 14-September-2017 for US$5,00 at the end of my driveway, but wouldn't pay any extra premium or have to drive at all for this one.

Flavour's fine, though wholly and disappointingly one-dimensional. The grain and grass typical of a Belgian blonde - and that's about it, besides the weakest touch of funk.

Bottle shared courtesy of Maakun. Hazy pale golden. Sweet malts, grass, white grapes, brett, oniony funk and grilled onion sweetness, sweaty socks. Moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body, mineralwater feel, lots of fizzy carbonation.

Bottle from Smith’s. Turbid straw pour with off-white head. Nose was hopcitrus, yeasty funk. Tasted tart, not too tart, like a yeastier, funkier blonde ale.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2017 Barwa złocista, lekko mętna, wysoka piana. W aromacie mocny funk, lekki kwasek, cytrusy. W smaku bretty, umiarkowanie słodkie z lekką goryczkową kontrą. Wysoko nasycone.
