Thanks to vacax for sharing this one at GRG1313’s tasting.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, grain, and citrus aromas. Taste is much the same with sour citrus flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Pours a thick golden apricot color, large fizzy white head.

Smells of sharp funky brett, some grass and hay, mild tartness, some pears and other light fruit with a moderate fruity sweetness too.

Taste opens with funky grass and hay again, pretty bright and pretty funk, good among of brett, a little sour but not aggressively so, some banana and pear and white grape. A bit of hop bitterness. Good stuff.

Nice very well carbonated mouthfeel, soft and a bit creamy, pretty refreshing.

A very nice light sour, funky and lots of interesting stuff going on but refreshing too.

8.2/10

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Hazy gold body with a white head, moderate retention. Clear, sticky lacing. Aroma includes candi sugar, citric orange, tart apple, grape, grape must. Taste is mildly tart, notes of pineapple, green apple, passion fruit and green grape. Lovely yeast, the alcohol isn't noticeable at all and very tasty and easy to drink. Lovely as usual.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Southern Brewing & Winemaking. Poured into a stange.

A: Pours a somewhat hazy bright gold, with a three-finger white head of large bubbles. Great amount of visible carbonation.

S: Fruity esters (banana and apple) with pale, cracker, and pilsner malts, with an undertone of funkiness.

T: Follows the nose. Very fruity (apple, pear, bit of citrus) with some barnyard funk to be sure. Very dry on the finish - almost bitter in the hang (don't think this is a hop bitterness though).

M: Light body, lots of carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is well-hidden.

O: This is very tasty. Recommended, and I would gladly have another.

A: Golden amber. Huge but not thick head that took a few minutes to die down. Solid lacing.

S: Awesome. I'm a sucker for Belgian pales and that's what i got. Big yeast with hints of fresh fruit, a little funk and a little alcohol.

T: Similar to the nose. It's a nice blend of saison tart with a more classic Belgian ale. A bit of malty sweetness fading into an excellent dry finish.

M: Well balanced. Moderate carbonation and body. Enhances most of the flavors already there.

O: Good beer, super drinkable. Not exactly what I was expecting, but for a style blend it is pulled off awesomely.

Pours a copper/amber color, hazed with chunks of sediment, big plume of cream colored head. Scent brings big notes of tart green apple, light notes of prune, bread and brown sugar, lightly floral. Taste much more subdued then the big scent lead me to believe.... Tart green apple, almost Brett like sharpness on the tounge, finishes bready with light spice, notes of plum, finishes with a light vinous quality. Dry through out, creamy and smooth. Unique across the board, good Belgian ale notes blend with solid farmhouse style.
