3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark ruby brown with an off white head. A mixture of light and medium dark malts on the nose with some nuts and red fruits. Quite the same in the mouth with a bit more fruit and red wine. This is a super interesting twist on a saison, which would be well served by a bit more concentration. Nice to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden pour with a significant amount of white head that leaves a little lace down the glass. A nose full of yeast. Lots of spice and some bright fruit esters. Almost has a gingerbread impression to me. The palate is quite different from the nose. Still lots of spice but the fruit is almost nonexistent and there’s something that’s making me think of vanilla ice cream, but that’s not quite what I’m thinking of. There’s a little weight on the palate with a nice prickly carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bb11/2016, courtesy of Enjoyit in the EU local Swap 4.0: mange tak! Pours a pink-inflected peach orange with confident white head. Nose of hibiscus, rum-like abv fumes, paint thinner and older red berries. Pinot noir profile is immediately apparent, superceding the fruity pale malt grain notes. Metallic, not quite US-artificial brett. Wine barrel tannins and Chinook pine provide the astringent finish that the saison yeast usually takes care of. Adding the yeast on 3rd pour definitely adds additional subtle fruit (peach, gooseberry) basket notes to the taste, as well providing some extra texture. Drinkable experiment, not quite the self-proclaimed sinful masterwork.
