750 ml corked & caged; medium orange with a dusty suspended haze and eggy white head lingering slowly; white sugar, sharp lemon peel, some pepper and dates too; plenty of body with his one even with the dry, peppery finish; get some oak and vanilla mixed with a little stale flowers and dry brett; has an intense mix of bitter spice and sweet fruit helped by the added texture; more pepper as it warms; pretty damn yummy; kind of has this chewy apricot or peach thin going on; after a few glasses the strength becomes more obvious with a silky, textured oaky profile that is just a tad heavy to me; a complex, but a little bit too intense saison; texture and flavors a little muddied by the end

Cette bière livre tous ce que j’esperais d’elle. Une union parfaite entre les saveures poivrées du brett avec les tanins du pinot noir. Definitivement dans mon top 10

Marheb (4585) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Sur papier, c’est un brassin extrêmement excitant et brillant. Les arômes sont celles d’une saison épicé et sauvage avec un caractère vineux très frais. En bouche c’est un effet domino déclenché par l’armature malté, le poivre, les agrumes, la levure sauvage pour conclure avec les tannins du vieillissement en baril. Ce qui me frappe le plus, c’est à quel point je peux littéralement goûter le Pinot noir. Une façon ingénieuse d’utiliser le Brett par Anchorage...Encore une fois.

jackl (6814) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Bottle. Hazy light amber color with a medium white head. The nose is quite floral, some summery fruits, white grape. The taste is plenty of lemons, some bretty funkyness, though not overstated. Hints of all spice and tea. Light, slightly dry finish. Light/medium body with active carbonation. Overall, a pleasant sipper.

suprchunk (2945) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Amber color. Off-white head with minimal lacing. Sour, fruity aroma. A bit of funk mixed in for good measure. Malty flavor with a big dose of funky brett. Very good.

Bottle with pat and Dallas, courtesy of Dallas. Pours a hazy orange amber with white lacing. Aroma is funky yeast, lots of lemon and some tart fruit. Mouthfeel is puckering tart, not overdone with notes of light citrus fruit, lemon specifically.

rosenbergh (10000) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
750 ml bottle. Batch #1. From bierkompass.de. Hazy deep golden colour with big off-white head. Lots of brettanomyces yeast, mild fruity sweetness and some sourness. Flavour is very fruity with some sweetness, sourness, yeast and hops. Moderate bitterness nicely accompanied with sourness. Nice combination of sourness, sweetness and bitterness. Tasty American Saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SpringsLicker (3417) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Pours a hazy orange with a 3-dimensional white head. Complex aroma. Flowery spice, sour fruit, new leather. The flavor is slightly sweet at first lots of herbal notes. Almost a lavender dryness in the finish. The complexity matches the aroma. Smooth yet lively.
