UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 light gold, white head. Aroma is brett and a bit of pickle juice. Light body. Tastes of light grain, some puckering, slightly astringent tartness, considerable hops (40 IBUís!) I didnít seem to mind this until the last sip or two, though itís definitely noticeable. I would have thought bitterness and tartness would clash. Good, not great though.

750 ml bottle with a great label. A very interesting beer with an amazing balance between the spices and citrus flavors. A firm hop and brettanomyces presence. A complex and intriguing saison.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle picked up at Connecticut Avenue in DC. Served in a Mikasa tulip. Pours a somewhat rusty light-brown color with a good off-white head and loads of lacing on the way down. Good retention before that. Thin ring of a collar as I finally finish my glass. The nose brings forward loads of fruity Brett-induced funk. A bit of a tropical character is present plus some light red wine. The Brett takes the show. Faint tropical Citra notes there as well. The flavor isnít quite as integrated and is almost-completely dominated by the Brett. While the Brett character is quite nice, itís a bit one dimensional and I would have liked to get a bit more spice. As it warms further, some of the wine comes out, but still none of the other additions. Light-medium body with good carbonation and a very dry finish. Brett heavy. Good, but not fantastic.

Cloudy, golden in color. Thick, Bubbly head that holds well after the pour. Fruity aroma. Rotten pumpkin aroma. Funky I will say. Slightly bitter. Grapefruit taste. Medium- bodied beer. Lively carbonation. Best saison I have had thus far.

JanLaursen (3035) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl: Hazy orange beer with a fluffy, unstable white head. Beautiful lacings. Nose is brett, floral and "white" fruits with notes of funky horsesaddle, citrus, peach, champagne, spices, hibiscus, mandarine. Taste is medium sweet, bretty sour, spicy peppery and only light bitter. Some oaky notes. Very complex. Creamy texture. Bubbly carbonation. Bretty, citrussy dry finish. Slightly decadent. Donít drink it too cold!

dmac (3929) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2012
750 ml cork and cage bottle from EZ Liquors. Poured a hazy orange body with a large fluffy mostly white head. Aroma is great with loads of fruit and funk. Notes of brett, lemons, funk, tangerine, white wine and light spice. The body is medium to fuller with soft large bubble carbonation and an almost creamy finish. Flavor is very nice but not as great as the aroma. Notes of brett, hay, rolls, lemons, dandelions. This is one good beer and I think the brett might come out a bit more if you sit on this one for a year or two.
