freaking delicious. not my favorite of the bunch, bit of cheese in the aroma, smells a bit sweeter and taste confirms that, light caramel, lightly sour, great brett character, almost New Glarus like in the sweetness. So yummy, wish it were just a tad dryer. Some hop bitterness to somewhat balance out the candy sweet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is nicely vinous with a slight sharpness from the grapes, a touch spicy, herbal and sweet, nice funkiness and a woody barrel note. Flavor starts sweet and sour with notes of the sweet grapeiness blending with the sour funky tart note. Woody and vanilla further in. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Very good beer.

Out of a bottle, hazy yellow gold pour with not much head. Floral, funky aroma with a similar taste bringing out a little of the Pinot barrel flavor and tangyness. It is awesome!!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy orange in color, thin off white head with very tiny bubbles, some lacing on the glass. aromas of funk, herbs, rose pedals, floral hops and a lactic sour aroma. Taste has that brett funkiness with herbs and spices, hop bitterness and sour on the finish, I am digging to pick up the red wine and oak flavors I am picking up the oak but not the vinous quality. This is a must try though and I do agree with the 100 rating, outstanding if not the best saison I have had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Semi hazy copper color with a thinner white head of foam. The aroma is pretty nice. Some tart green apple and winy notes make the aroma so enjoyable. Taste gets a must fruity note. The brett is pretty subdued in this one. Spritzy mouthfeel.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle August 2011 poured into a tulip. Pours orange with small white head. Little lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, and nice tart aroma. Taste is slightly tart, oak, and some red wine. Expected a little more, but better as it warms.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright orange golden color with three fingers of fizzy foam. On the nose its tart oaky funk, citrus, pepper spice and some nice vinous berry notes too. On the palate its follows the nose nicely. Spicy peppery citrus leads into some nice earthy bitter hop flavors that flow and brighten into some berry fruit and funk on the late palate. Delicious.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This beer looks great right out of the pour. Rich golden colors as well as a rich smooth pour. Very aromatic and floral so it took me a minute to get my nose out of the glass hahaha. it tasted even better than i expected. the sourness of the beer perfectly mellows out the initial taste of the peppercorns. Fruit flavors stood out nicely above the slight funk. Super super tasty beer. I was sad to see the bottle empty.
