CampesinoTino (782) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Corked & Caged 750 ml Bottle. Pours a hazy burnt golden orange color with significant layer of foam and bubbles. Aroma is sharp and citrusy with a good dose of Brett, wine barrel, orange peel, rose hips and resiny hops around the edges. The taste opens up with a blend of ruby red grapefruit, lemon rind and pineapple before the sour, funky Brett flavors takes over for a bit. After that there’s some pepper, apricot, white grape and oak rounding things out. Mouthfeel is bone dry with strong carbonation and a tart, acidic finish. Overall, a unique take on the Saison style that tastes very much like the brewery’s other offerings.

Opening salvo of tang, burnt cigarette butt , translucent palette, slightly acidic backbone, hazy dark copper light foam around the ring, light bouquet daisies & honey, but the overall taste is a bit underwhelming for me, something of an in-between hybrid

Been looking for this one for a while and finally got my hands on it. Nice oaky bretty aroma. The flavor is wildly complex. Light tartness with some sour fruit followed by the slightest note of barnyard. Vinious oak comes through with a dry finish. Great beer!

andrewje41 (670) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2014
750 Ml bottle corked and labeled as batch number 3. Pours a cloudy light orange color with sour grapes and maybe some peach aroma. Thicker body for my usual saisons, but this isn’t your typical saison. A lot of sour fruit, grape, and citrus with a wonderful collaboration of spices in the finish. I expected a lot out of this beer and waited a while to finally get it, and it completely exceeded my expectations. Incredible beer to say the least.

furthur (214) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle, slightly cloudy body the color of cider, nice white head fades to a ring. Aroma is dry cider, peach, cider vineager. Opening Taste is dry cider, sliding to pineapple, peach, and yes orange peal bitterness. Finish is dry, bitter, just a hint of pepper smoky earthiness, not spicy though. Palate is light and crisp, carbonation bright, but not exuberant.

Padron4KM (566) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2014
750 ml corked and caged bottle.
Hazy, dirty orange, with a tight, off-white head and spotty lacing.
Aroma is big on the Brett, but there is oak, wine, cherries, funky, barnyard all swirling around inside.
Flavor is funky, tart, sweet, vinous, oak, light tannins. Definitely taste the Pinot Noir.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation.
Finish is long and has an oaky dryness. Tasty

Ontape (364) - Valley Village, California, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle. Dang! Another elegant, distinguished beer from Anchorage. I know better than to expect otherwise by now. Aroma sends up fruit, funk, wine barrel, more. Taste follows -- rich and sumptuous with all notes played loudly but in harmony. Citrus and peppercorns and wine and more. Mouthfeel is saison perfection, finish is dry and complex with more of the fruit and funk that opened the show.

BMMillsy (1524) - Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle from Tipples, corked and caged. Poured to my tulip hazy orange with lots of. Unless and a big creamy white to off white head. Huge Brett aroma, orange peels, lots of floral and peppery notes, barnyard funky and dry. Not a lot of wine on the nose. Flavor is sweet mango intermingled with rose hips, citrus, funk, and light peppery spice. Lightly tart from the Brett, full bodied with a vinous red wine heaviness, but strong carbonation. Wow. This might be the best Brett beer I've ever had. The big juiciness of the beer balances out the dry funky Brett outstandingly.

Pours a reddish gold with a thick white head. Aroma of Brett, red wine, oak, funk, citrus and wheat. Taste is bitter citrus, oak, red wine, Brett, funk, earth, and wheat. One of the most complex beers I’ve ever had. So good!
