Bottle. Pours orange, hazy, with a white head. Apricot candy, light brett and citrus hops in the aroma. Orange, white wine and tropical fruit notes in the taste. A bit dry, but mostly fresh. Complex, yet refreshing. Like a modern Orval!

Bottle, as pictured, from UncleJedi in the TBS Secret Santa. Wow, this is really good. Hazy gold, leaves a bit of foam on the side of the glass. Really light and easy to drink. Smells somewhat citrusy, but has an almost champagne smell as well. I would say that the taste is flowery and somewhat earthly. This is really really good.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1008) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 13, 2012
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 IBU’s!) I didn’t seem to mind this until the last sip or two, though it’s definitely noticeable. I would have thought bitterness and tartness would clash. Good, not great though.

Gription79 (2827) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 11, 2012
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 (5016) - , 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 isn’t quite as integrated and is almost-completely dominated by the Brett. While the Brett character is quite nice, it’s 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.
