Cloudy gold pour with a 3 finger, fluffy beige head. Aroma has lots of fruity funky brett, but in a pretty mild way, hay, lots of floral and citrus hops, hints of untoasted oak. Flavor is pretty amazing, nice funk, lots of berry, vinous and citrus notes, sweet cereal, lemon grass, sweet floral notes and just a hint of oak to the finish. Light to medium body with a slightly creamy entry turning juicy from there out to a slightly more dry finish, with some light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation. Really amazing stuff, right up there with my favorite Saisons, possibly the best I have had. Easily the best at hiding a high ABV%.

Suttree (5548) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle from Tasty Beverage, Asheville. Pours orange, coppery, with a decent sized head. Smells great, with a big flowery aroma at first, then notes of tropical fruit. Some winey notes in the background. Taste is nicely tart and citrusy, with nice winey flavors. Very easy to drink. It gets winier as it warms. Hides it’s ABV well, too.

ctipping (228) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2015
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Hazy amber body. Huge brett aroma. Strong red wine as well. Red wine is the first taste, as well. Sweet maltiness. Brett earthy finish. Medium heavy. Medium carbonation. It’s all brett and red wine, which taste great together.

Tastes of oak, herbs, dry wine, flowery and vinous notes, some white pepper, some tart acidic notes and Brett. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Too vinous for my liking.

DietPepsican (1527) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2015
Gold pour white head. Peachy. Urinal cake. Bubblegum. Nectarine. A bit too chewy. Spicing mixes well. Fine, hoping for something a touch drier but beer still reps.
