Draught ar Bailey’s Taproom in Portland (from notes). Funky, yeasty, and lemon aroma. Initial has a pleasant lemon character which gains intensity through the finish. Final gives off some dry, straw, residual lemon. Like a moderated version of Cantillon Gueze. Nice stuff, indeed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 11/2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-apricot color with a large foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was musty and dusty peach, orange and pear. The flavor was dry and bretty with notes of peach and orange. Medium finish and body. Tasty - like a fruity Orval.

Thanks, Aaron! Served in a cervoise. Huge head and lacing. Strong saison nose followed by light acidic twang and wheat in the flavor. Very dry with light oak.

Sweet, light honey nose with a touch of apple and leaves. Flavor is lightly sweet, with honey and ripe pear, some raw sugar, light citrus juice, and a touch of dusty yeast. Fairly solid, but could use improved carbonation retention.

750mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear lighter orange. Fizzy, larger, big bubbled head. Spotty lace. Better appearance on second pour. Still a bit over carbonated. Nose is orange peel, lemon, orange marmalade, sweet orange candy drops, sweet cream butter, mild Brett and cedar. Taste is minerally, spicy, sharp carbonation, more sweet cream butter, fresh biscuit, orange marmalade, small margarine but no diacetyl. Palate is moderately tart and tangy. Thick biscuit and bread. Really nice. Refreshing. No flaws. As it warms, more lactic acid comes through in the finish.

12oz pour of the ’Provision’ @ Baileys Taproom. Pours a murky amber with small white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is reminiscent of a sour-- maybe a little honey at the end. Flavor is a beautifully complex mush-mash of a lot of awesome stuff I can’t identify. My palate is pretty well mashed. Moderately carbonated, sour finish that mellows and lingers. I might have to come back tomorrow to try this again. Fantastic brew.

Bottled. 2011 Vintage saved for a special day. Does not disappoint. Pours hazy light orange-peach with a large fluffy white head. Decent retention and lace. Absolutely bombing bretty nose with tart citrus and light oak. Medium tart, dry flavor with a touch of honey. Little sweetness, maybe the fruit has faded after a year. Light body, thin-oily texture, solid carbonation, and a long, oily, tart finish. Great packing also.
