2014 vintage aged in my "beer cellar". Huge carb and a gold color and a white head. Aroma is of cherry pie and spice. Flavor is very floral with a hint of white grape. This likely past its prime, but still an excellent beer.

Clear pale golden appearance. Strong aroma of Brett and bready yeast. Strangely dry and boozy. It’s really bone dry with a lasting bitterness.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow-orange, massive, off white meringue head. Aroma is very fresh, mint, barnyard, coriander, hay, notes of bubblegum. A nice spice up front on the tongue, pepper, Belgian yeastiness, lingering and breathy finish of spice, some white grape. Great version of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL corked & caged Champagne bottle from Slowbeer. 2015 vintage
Big white foam pours into the glass dying down into a dense cap atop a hazy orange body.
Lovely aroma, totally not what I was expecting - toasty, biscuity, bran cereal sort of malts upfront, spicy peppery phenolics, subtle floral undertones, touch of hay & bruised pineapple Brett sort of character, hint of booze there too.
Quite full bodied for a Saison, still drying, lingering finish, lively carbonation but well tempered.
Very enjoyable malt character to it - husky cereals, bran, savoury cracker biscuit, touch of sweetness leading to notes of ripe pear, apricot & apple, finishing off with spicy white pepper, clove & hay bale notes. Moderate bitterness, touch of almost oaky and funky ovely ripe tropical fruit notes to finish on a warming finish.
Very different from any Saison I’ve come across, maybe not as funky as expected - might be one to keep for that

Pours a bright golden yellow with fizzy head. Aromas of tropical fruits and some citrus peel. Funky orange/lemon peel flavors with a nice brett woody funk.
