Pours a cloudy orange color with a nice head to it. Has a bretty, floral smell to it. Taste is similar but with some oak in there and bitterness that last through out. Pretty nice but I would like to see what the brett does to this in another year.

Bottled. Pours hazy golden with an average white head. Aroma of hoppy citrus notes, funk, yeast, vanilla, wood, grapes and spices. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up being dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average to lively carbonation. An excellent Saison.🌟🌟🌟🌟

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (Dec 2015 date). Pours golden with an off-white fluffy head. Minimal bubbles stick to the glass as I drink it. Smells of berries, oak, spices, sweet malts, some alcohol. Medium sweet with a light bitterness underneath. Tastes of soft Brett, spices, sweet malts, some fruit. Medium+ bodied. Flavors last well into the finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Cloudy orange body with a large, dissipating eggshell head. Wonderful aroma of wheat, red wine, fruit, yeast, spice, some wood, and a hint of brett sourness. Medium body, full carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Flavor of red wine, brettanomyces, grapes, rose, pepper, medium hops. The combination of elements combine surprisingly well in the aroma but not as successfully in the flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Cloudy orange with a small head and no lace. Very funky aroma and palate. Sour for a saison, more of a lactic than brett profile.
Over ripe orange or mandarine rind with spice. Gode length and mouthfeel.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; Batch #4, bottled in 12/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus rind, peppercorn, apricot, pineapple, melon, red wine, hay, straw, leather, musty funk, herbal, floral, toasted oak, bread, light caramel/vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spices, wine barrel, and light-moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus rind, peppercorn, apricot, pineapple, melon, red wine, hay, straw, leather, musty funk, herbal, floral, toasted oak, bread, light caramel/vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Large amount of peppery yeast/tannic oak spiciness and moderate tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus rind, peppercorn, apricot, pineapple, melon, red wine, hay, straw, leather, musty funk, herbal, floral, toasted oak, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spices, wine barrel, and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/spiciness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Good dryness from tart/spiciness as well. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, acidic/tannic/sticky, and lightly creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Brett saison. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spices, wine barrel, and light-moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Une saison à 8%? Why not, essayons ça! C’est vraiment très parfumé au nez, c’est assez hallucinant! Une mélange de fleurs, de vin rouge, d’agrûmes et de bretts à caractère fruité. Le tout bien concentré! Très particulier et très intéressant. En bouche, c’est très rond mais en même temps bien vivant. Les saveurs réflètent les odeurs mais sont ici prèsque trop intenses. Ce sont des notes florales que je n’ai jamais expérimentées, que j’aime bien, mais qui sont présentées tel un coup de poing sur la gueule.... J’aurais préféré une simple claque je pense! N’empêche, c’est une fantastique bière de dégustation, très complexe et très parfûmée.

Sample at the "Post Beer Week Bottle Share" on 06/06/16. The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium white head that burns away steadily to a film. Stringy lacing. Aroma of funky yeast, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of vinous oak, brett yeast, citrus and malt. The finish is funky and fruity with a bretty aftertaste. Good beer all around.
