3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Beer Temple. Slightly hazy golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of strong spice, like cardamon (probably the bay leaves), light Brett funk, lime. Flavour is medium sweet, light peppery, strong spice, again very cardamon-like and a little like eucalyptus, light lime, light tart, spicy and light peppery finish. Light-bodied. A bit too spicy imo.

Bue en bouteille de 50cl. Belle acidité déjà présenté au nez. Brett et agrumes présents. Corpulence moyenne et finale plutôt courte ce qui est dommage.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but likely from 2015. Pours hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, apricot, pineapple, pear, apple, peppercorn, herbal bay leaf, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, grass, light leather, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of fruity/funky/spicy brett, spices, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange peel, apricot, pineapple, pear, apple, peppercorn, herbal bay leaf, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, grass, light leather, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness and slight tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, apricot, pineapple, pear, apple, peppercorn, herbal bay leaf, hay, straw, grass, light leather, and musty funk on the finish for a short bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy brett, spices, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness after the finish from carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly acidic/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent spiced brett saison. All around great robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy brett, spices, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
