4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color with orange/tangerine edges and a one finger white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Musty brett aroma with some barrel and a boat load of luscious organic peach. Farmhouse yeast and musty funk in the nose with dry brett, damp wood and a very prominent peach presence. Nice fruited saison. The brett really stands out after it warms and is nicely complimented by the oak. The peach character is dominant but doesn’t smell artificial nor is it overpowering. Nice balance of different characteristics in the nose.
Medium bodied with a prominent musty brett character along with dry oak and sour peach. The dry brett flavor is really strong with musty funk perfectly complimenting the farmhouse yeast. Oak is dry/toasted but blends nicely with the bugs and funky yeast notes. Peaches come in at the end with a luscious organic feel. Not cloying or overly sweet with some sour acidity lingering in the finish. Slightly puckering with pit and fleshy fruit flavor. Very complex but it’s one of most balanced beers I’ve ever had. Flavor and mouthfeel are nearly perfect. I wasn’t a fan of regular Seizoen or Seizoen Bretta but I highly recommend doing whatever it takes to try this one.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle at home. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Intense rich peach aromas with some greasy butter flower as well. Medium body with an imminent spicy bitterness probably coming from the mixture of the base beer, the wood and the fruit tannins, there are quite some tannins. Peach comes back nicely in the flavour, but the bitter spiciness is a bit of a bummer, but a great beer all in all.
