4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Note this is the 2013 Batch that was just released, time will change this reviewA - Hazy golden with small yeast floating, Nice 2-3 finger head leaving after 2 mins, bubble lacing remaining on sides of tulip glass.S - Much like the Tank 7 from which it is derived but has more of the earthy tones with the "Brett " yeastT - Grassy, fruity, lemon pineapple, earthy slight bitterness that lingers with the funk that lingers on the back of the throat.M - Nice carbonation, light and musty lingering onO - Super beer to sip and enjoy all the flavors that come through and one of the very best of the Farmhouse styles of beer you will every taste ( at least from what I have tasted and read on the style) Highly recommended if you are a fan of this style and a benchmark of American brewed interpretation of the Belgium Farmhouse style

Pours a hazy straw yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is Brett funk, citrus, spicy yeast, and barnyard/hay smells. Flavor is spicy yeast, Brett funk, and citrus. Has a soft, smooth mouthfeel. Nice.

Pours hazy blonde with a fine white head. Nose is a nice blend of tart apple, white wine and a touch of floral hops on top of a Belgian pale malt. Flavor shows off those brettanomyces in a balanced manner. Finish is sticky and smooth. A rare saison that’s funky without taking it to a sour level. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Light sour aroma. Hazy medium golden amber, white head that drops to a full cover, stripes of lace. Taste is caramel malt resting in full carbonation, turning sour more than bitter in the end. Doesn’t match the Saison profile, but who cares - it’s really good, so who cares.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Funky barnyard going on here in a good way on the nose....some licorice. Taste is complex, dark fruit, some pepper spiciness also, but still effervescent and refreshing. Really nice.

Opened 8-9-16. Letting it warm up and air out is helping. Overall I'm pretty inexperienced with brett beers. If I can get past the rubber note I'll enjoy this more.

Bomber from Matt. Thanks! It’s a lovely beer. Velvety creamy, citrus flavors with a subtle brett character. Well done.

Almost a bit watery. Nice Brett nose. Flavor is hop and sweetness of honey and light Brett. Tangy and balanced. A nice Brett beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I expected sour notes out of this, given the "brett" part of its name, but this tastes much more like a bitter saison than it does a mix of two styles. Even I never should have expected the crossover flavor, I'm still left disappointed in that bitter finish. It starts relatively sweet and it's pretty to look at, but I'm not crazy about the floral scent and end taste. Not a bad beer, but not one I'd drink again.

Holy head on the pour. Prob not using the right glass but very impressive. It tastes like a base Tank 7 but not as thick and cloudy. An earthy tone seems accurate. A bit funky but not in a bad way. New to the style, dont have alot to compare it to but definately unique.
