Bottle. Pours a deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is nicely vinous with a slight sharpness from the grapes, a touch spicy, herbal and sweet, nice funkiness and a woody barrel note. Flavor starts sweet and sour with notes of the sweet grapeiness blending with the sour funky tart note. Woody and vanilla further in. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Very good beer.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
On all accounts this is an old bottle. I had to dig through Facebook to see the picture of the bottle lineup from when I first got this. I donít know why itís taken me so long to open it, but the picture was from April of 2013, which puts this at three years old... maybe a touch younger.
Iíve had the beer since then, and itís a beer I like, but this rating is going off this dust bottle from my basement.
Pours a bright orange with a huge head and nice lacing on the glass.
Goodness this smells good, lime zest, dusty attic & wet limestone basement... very nicely funky and earthy with some barnyard stuff... but impossibly bright for the age.
The flavor is dry and tart... itís got a really nice depth of rich wine like oak and fruit character. There is some lemon zest, there is some light citrus peel bitterness... there is a little bit of apple... zippy and bright, wow.
The palate is remarkably lively & sharp.
Iíve seen so many Brett Saisons and/or Orval-ish beers age so poorly that I didnít have a huge expectation here, but this is lovely.

Bottle courtesy of SHIG. Cheers, Shawn! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is Brett- funk, earth, sweet malt, vinous oak, yeast, and spice. Flavor is similar with Brett, funk, earth, yeast, oak, vinous character, and spice (chamomile esque?). Medium to full in body and very memorable for a saison.
