stoutnick (377) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle at The Ginger Man, NYC. Golden. Aroma is mild fruit. Taste is a bit subdued to begin - began to wonder if bottle had lost some of its zing with age. Nice tang from Brett (Tide and its Takers) but funk doesn’t overrule everything. These guys know how to balance the Brett with the core beer style. Finishes with some sweetness and citrus; very lovely. As far as Saisons go this isn’t crazy with the carbonation. Don’t feel like I’m going to float off into the atmosphere. As it warms the fruitiness comes out even more lovelier. Not sticky, not too bubbly, nice funkiness. Overall, definitely the best Saison I’ve yet had.

Doft: lime. Smak: sur, bitter som att dricka crape frukt och skal vita. Eftersmak bitter och torr öl. Helt ok i mindre mängder.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Batch #2, August 2012 Apricot ale with a sheet of loose knit light foam. Smells of elderflower initially, pepper, lemon, seltzer, some grain and some clay; just a touch of musty trub. Lightly tart, quite bitter, medicinal, some bitter orange peel, a little bit of tart and the aftertaste is really grassy and filthy to me. Medium bodied on full with low carb and dry finish. A little too bitter and overly mutilated by the Brett for me. Nose is really satisfying, but the flavor doesn’t do it for me.

Bottle. Colour...cloudy golden-straw with that ANC brewing thick head! Nose...oh! Just a bit of brett (understatement) to go with the piles of mixed fruits. Palate...Hi! My name is Brett!! I’m a close talker and in your face!!! But that’s a good thing in this case! The brett is big here but the massive fruit salad is also present to keep brett in check! The oak shows up mid way through the experience and then the grapey bits (the pinot??) make their presence known with macerated skins really making the flavour point. One of the finest saisons I’ve ever had!
