This beer looks great right out of the pour. Rich golden colors as well as a rich smooth pour. Very aromatic and floral so it took me a minute to get my nose out of the glass hahaha. it tasted even better than i expected. the sourness of the beer perfectly mellows out the initial taste of the peppercorns. Fruit flavors stood out nicely above the slight funk. Super super tasty beer. I was sad to see the bottle empty.

RBAG 2012. Of all the beers at RBAG 2012 this might have been my personal favorite. Orange in colour with strong carbonation. BIg time bretty funk on the nose, along with notes of dried herbs, mellow red wine, and citrus peel. Very dry in the mouth with loads of brett, rose hip herbal tea, orange and tangerine peel, and red wine barrel. It almost smelt a little dirty in such a good way. The kind of good dirty like when you significant other talks about getting dirty. The taste was all kinds of excellent I can’t quite communicate properly. This has landed on my "buy all on sight" list.

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2012
Golden orange in colour with a long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of bubblegum, yeast, floral hops, oranges and grapefruit, some pale malts. The flavour is bretty, sweet, floral, lots of citrus, barnyard, oaky. Bretty mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, bretty, with some citrus.

Where did this brewery come from? One on the "holy shit" moments for me this past year. Unbelievable stuff here. My new favorite brewery in North America - by a long margine.

750ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York.
Opened on December 15, 2011.
Batch #1, August 2011.

750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. This place has lots of good beer!!! Pours hazy dark amber with a frothy/foamy off-white head. Aroma through the foam is celery and very mucky barnyard. Followed by fruity perfume? Med + body. Flavor is celery, barnyard, red wine, funk, barnyard, yeast/spice, oak, French shoes(:)) This is fruity, juicy funky stuff. This is rich vinosity hitting farm yard. My mouth tingles. My nose rejoices. Where do these guys come from?

RBAG, with massive thanks to tytoanderso. I recently discovered that my U.S. pickup point tried to give the box containing this beer away to some dude who merely shared the same last name as I. Can you believe that? The guy was honest and returned it shortly after driving away with it, though. This rating is for you, Mike Baines of Lethbridge. Wherever you are... Pours murky orange, thin white head, ropey lacing. Nose is funky tart cheesy berries, some oak, some real floral and vinous notes here too. Flavours of tart cream, cassis, cranberry, oak, tannin. God what a brew! Perhaps the very best high-alcohol Saison I’ve ever had. One of the few beers that really lives up to the hype! ISO: 10 dozen more of these!!!

Bottle with pat and James. Pours a hazy amber with nice head. smell is somehow hoppy and sour. Dry yet really juicy. Quenching. Slight oak flavor. Really fantastic.
