Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2012
750mL bottle. Poured fiery medium orange with a well-formed, sticky white head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma opened with prickly pear, lemon rind, and complementary vinous notes over soft oak.. bready notes, edible flowers, black pepper, and coriander came on the second wave.. more bread, a pinch of honey, and fruity Brett on the back of the nose (I didn’t see Brett on the label until later).. lots of great stuff going on, and it was all kinds of well-balanced! The flavor had a nice base of bready and pale malts, with dry, fruity Brett, tangy oak, and lemon rind emanating outward.. cloves, vinous notes, and tasty Brett around.. long, dry, complex finish with residuals of everything that needed to be there. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. spicy and complex.. great balance. This was awesome, and entirely worth the $13 (or whatever I paid) anytime.

oobawa (626) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Deliciousness, with waves and layers and complexity, all coupled with a tiny bit o’ funk. The peppercorns provide a nice oomph to the periphery, while the pinot noir adds a depth to the Brett-inspired weirdness. Lovely pinkish hue, lovely punkish taste, with a rollicking finish that dances between funkay, the tiniest bit tart, and dry and oaky. Killer bottle.

hoosiers1994 (684) - Maryland, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle, Batch 1 - August 2011. Pour is a cloudy orange with a fluffy and thick cream colored head. Aromas are orange and funky brett with a bit of wood. Taste is not typical saison, since the spices are not there. Getting a lot of funky brett, some pinot and wood notes from the barrel. Also getting soft orange notes. No spices like cardamom or clove that you might expect. The barrel gives a definite wine characteristic that is great. Overall, a great beer.

pineypower (3075) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle from Christmas, thanks mom and dad. Pours out a moderate copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is of some funky, plasticky brett, wood, some pepper and light fruity spice notes. Taste is of funky brett, oak, some light wine notes, band-aid brett, pepper, fruits, earth. Solid brew, need to grab one to sit on to see what it does.

Orange hazed colour with a large fluffy head.. nice lacing.., smells like a cat piss but you need to drink again and again!! Taste is really incredible... the rose hints, creepy fruits, flowers, oak, bretta and other earthy things are the perfect mix for me in a saison!
