UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014 Batch 3. Juillet 2014. Robe dorée embrouillée. Belle tête et dentelle indomptée. Au nez, les parfums de cuir, de houblons fruités, de ferme et de bois imbibé de vin sont assaisonnés délicatement par un jeu intelligent d’épices. Quelle fusion agréable! Sur les papilles, le vin est vaillant et les brettanomyces cherchent à cacher toute montée fruitée. En fait, tout est très campagnard, très vineux et très sauvage. C’est bon mais ça manque un brin de wow. En bouche, le liquide huileux n’est pas très actif. J’aurais aimé une action plus soutenue des bulles. Cela aurait élevé d’un cran la buvabilité. En finale, la combinaison des bretts et de l’action du fût façonnent une adéquate sécheresse. Bonne Saison dans une bouteille trop dispendieuse.

Pours hazy orangish color with white head. Aromas of citrus, melon, and pineapple. Funky and tart citrus flavors with oak and some vinous notes. Medium body with lively carbonation. Excellent.

Opening salvo of tang, burnt cigarette butt , translucent palette, slightly acidic backbone, hazy dark copper light foam around the ring, light bouquet daisies & honey, but the overall taste is a bit underwhelming for me, something of an in-between hybrid

Been looking for this one for a while and finally got my hands on it. Nice oaky bretty aroma. The flavor is wildly complex. Light tartness with some sour fruit followed by the slightest note of barnyard. Vinious oak comes through with a dry finish. Great beer!

750 Ml bottle corked and labeled as batch number 3. Pours a cloudy light orange color with sour grapes and maybe some peach aroma. Thicker body for my usual saisons, but this isn’t your typical saison. A lot of sour fruit, grape, and citrus with a wonderful collaboration of spices in the finish. I expected a lot out of this beer and waited a while to finally get it, and it completely exceeded my expectations. Incredible beer to say the least.

furthur (494) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle, slightly cloudy body the color of cider, nice white head fades to a ring. Aroma is dry cider, peach, cider vineager. Opening Taste is dry cider, sliding to pineapple, peach, and yes orange peal bitterness. Finish is dry, bitter, just a hint of pepper smoky earthiness, not spicy though. Palate is light and crisp, carbonation bright, but not exuberant.

Padron4KM (702) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2014
750 ml corked and caged bottle.
Hazy, dirty orange, with a tight, off-white head and spotty lacing.
Aroma is big on the Brett, but there is oak, wine, cherries, funky, barnyard all swirling around inside.
Flavor is funky, tart, sweet, vinous, oak, light tannins. Definitely taste the Pinot Noir.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation.
Finish is long and has an oaky dryness. Tasty

Bottle. Dang! Another elegant, distinguished beer from Anchorage. I know better than to expect otherwise by now. Aroma sends up fruit, funk, wine barrel, more. Taste follows -- rich and sumptuous with all notes played loudly but in harmony. Citrus and peppercorns and wine and more. Mouthfeel is saison perfection, finish is dry and complex with more of the fruit and funk that opened the show.
