4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle. 2011 vintage, Bottle #11107. Pours clear golden with floating impurities and a huge white soapy head that recedes slowly, leaving patchy lace. Aroma is awesomely bretty; smells lilke dusty old books, lemons, barnyard funk. Taste is sweet and finishes dry and bitter. Highly carbonated with a foamy mouthfeel. Smells better than it tastes, not that it tastes bad. Itís a good beer.

I had this at Global Brew. I was not fond of the earthiness of this beer. I could drink this again but would prefer to skip.

Earthy (barnyard?), spicy aroma, with subtle fruity tartness. Peppery spice flavor; earthy, floral, apple-ish fruit. Sweeter in the finish.

Really a very nice saison from a brewery Iím coming to respect (and seek out!) very often. Pour is fairly typical for a saison --- a cloudy muted orange with a large white head --- and the nose is yeasty with some spicy and fruity notes. Flavor is where it excels, as it has a nice balance of peppery spice, dryness, and yeasty Belgian qualities. Itís flavorful and multifaceted and impresses with a touch of dry bitterness and a bit of sweeter fruity yeastiness lingering on the palate.

Pours a orange golden color with a slight haze and a thick three finger sticky foam. The nose is sweet fruit, barnyard funk and a touch of spicy rustic yeast. On the palate it follows suit with a pineapple juiciness that rounds out the dry peppery spice and add depth and roundness. Nice funk a tad sweet but not sticky on the mouthfeel. Very drinkable and delicious.

Serving: from tap at Brouwerís Cafe.
Aroma: moderate peach aroma.
Appearance: small, rocky, white, initial head with fully diminishing longevity and fair lacing. Clear, flat, light amber body.
Taste: light-to-moderately sour, apple cider-like initial flavor and yeasty, tongue-numbing, medicinal finish with long duration.
Palate: light-to-medium body, dry texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: very interesting taste, but I didnít enjoy the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 22 ounce bottle. Brettanomyces, Greek for "British yeast" is typically shunned due to the off-flavor it imparts when contaminating traditional, sacchromyces yeasted beers. Here, they key in on the brett flavors, which is especially fitting for a saison. Saisons are already a very loose style of beer, largely known for their historic context as a Wallonia (French-Belgian) farm laborerís post-work summer beverage. They were allotted 5 liters per day of the stuff. Itís fruity, light, heavily carbonated and spicy...good for hot weather. The farmhouse flavors highlighted here are appropriate for a farmworkerís style of beer. Itís a dusty yellow color, bubbles all over the place, thick foam on top, heavy lacing. Aroma is lemon, sweet, dank, and musty. Somehow it pulls off a sort of good b.o. smell. Palate is medium bodied, fizzy, very drinkable. Taste is more of that musty farmhouse deal, citrus, pepper. Overall itís a really delicious example of a brett beer and definitely worth a try if youíre looking for an approachable spin of that distinctive component.

Bottle at a bottle share. Pours a hazy light amber color with a moderate head. Nose is slightly sour with some floral elements. Feels very light and easy to drink. Quite pleasant.

Bottle share at Hunaphu Day. Slightly hazy golden pour with a frothy white head. Hay, sourdough, lots of yeast funk, graininess and floral notes on the nose. Flavors of citrus and flowers, with tons of yeast funkiness and sourdough. Very dry and crisp. Tasty and refreshing beer.
