last place in a barrel aged saison off, this one was a little too malty for me, possibly could be becuase the others were so dry. Could have offset my pallate. Richand thick, tastes Belgian

toxichop (470) - South Gate, California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
P: Light golden with just a bit of haze, leaving no light to penatrate, with a finger size soapy white head that leaves a nice lacing. S: Horse blanket, bready yeast, light oak and sliced pears. T: Light lime, some wet hay, some grapes and pears, didnt really get any of that oak. M: Light with medium sparkling carbonation, the beer feel very wet. O: Very nice and easy to drink but a bit forgettable.

Goblet pour at the Hopleaf. Thick amber in color with no clarity and a big strong head. As it fades leaves behind a sticky lacing. Aroma is... wow on the nose. A beautiful cleaned up yeast fruitiness (light apple and pear) backed up by a great bretty lemon character. Light phenolics and goats oil coming off the brett as well but adds to the bouquet of many disparate aspects in the nose. Flavor is good but not quite as good as the aroma lets on. The brett seems to have ate up a lot of beer character. Basically, a wild tart orange flavor with a long sweet candy finish. Has a strong carbonation yet a full mouthfeel. Really enjoyed the crap out of this beer, wish it wasn’t so expensive.

Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Sweet yeast, hay and summer fruit aromas. Sharp with sour lactic fruit upfront turning to earthy bitterness in the lasting finish.
