3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013 Bottle ; I have no idea how I didn’t have a rate for one of my favorite first loves. It’s over carbonated out of the gate, so I slow poured it to the best of my ability. A huge, frothy / cloudy head in this glass presents itself, eventually becoming something manageable, albeit pillowy. Coloration is cloudy medium golden. The nose provides mineral water, lemongrass, bready malts, and a certain musk from the brett addition. It’s very appealing ; the flavor profile is initial modest sweetness, medium mouthfeel, moving to a bittering effect from the grassy notes with some lemon zest present ; earthy minerals present themselves, with more caramel sweetness rounding it out with a long finish with modest dryness here. One of my favorites to pick up in the midwest

Bottle shared with esp0r at Øltorget Mathallen august 1st 2013. Hazy golden body, big white head. Aroma of citrus peels, pine, farmyard, peppers. Taste is fruity, citrus and peach, with peppery saison yeast, light tartness, blue veined cheese and basil. Nice crisp and dry finish from the brett, light bittering hops, really refreshing. A very very great beer in my opinion.

Gyllengul öl med vitt skum. Mycket kryddighet och örtighet i doften, lite jäst, gröna äpplen. Bra pepprig kryddighet i smaken och en trevlig beska.

Disapointed of this one. I had great expectations but the beer let me down. I love tank 7 but some of the grassy green stuff in the tank 7 was gone. All the nice stuff. Left back was a very dry tasteless saison. Taste is individual, and it appears i dont like the brett flavor. At least not when the brett is fresh. Keeping the other bottle in the basement for a few years

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 3/2013. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger foamy and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, pear, lemon zest, orange zest, apple, hay, floral, grass, pepper, light bread, light must, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity brett, earthy yeast, and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, pear, apple, pepper, clove, hay, grass, floral, light bread, light must, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pineapple, bright citrus, pepper, clove, bread, hay, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical brett flavors with fruity/spicy yeast and moderate malt balance; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp, smooth, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible saison! All around amazing balance and complexity of brett/yeast and moderate malt flavors; and super smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. An extremely delicious offering.
