4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 Initial rating 6/14/2013:
Pours hazy gold with an intense, thick, foamy white head that lasts. A bit more carbonation than Tank 7 and a wonderful earthy, farmhouse aroma. Incredibly easy to drink with a smooth, medium-light body. A great saison-brett!
Second rating 10/22/2013: Aged this bottle for exactly 5 months. Intense foam. Less carbonation than before and alcohol is more noticeable. Very, very smooth with an almost velvety texture. A bit funkier in taste- not quite more farmhouse but definitely something a wee bit earthy/peaty...perhaps just characteristically Brett? Not bad, but not amazing. Alcohol notes still rather strong compared to a slight fruitiness.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is Citrus yeast in space. Flavor pretty much follows the name of the beer because it’s a saison defined and Modified by Brett.

Deep hazy gold, fluffy head. Brett a gogo on the nose. Big sour body smacks into your taste buds immediately. Yeasty, spicy, complex. Amazing that this was brewed in the new world. nice. Something in the aftertaste is slightly off but overall very good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. (2015 release) Pours a cloudy orange with some sediment floating around and a huge, frothy, long lasting, white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet, fruity aroma of lemon, wheat malt and light brettanomyces. Sweet fruity flavour of lemon, wheat malt, spicy yeast and alcohol with a dry, bitter, slightly tart finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and lively carbonation. Well balanced. An excellent saison.

Bottle. Pale golden with one finger head. Funky Brett barnyard. Just a bit fruity and tart. Nicely funky. Would be a really nice introduction to sours.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
