We added wild yeast to a portion of our Saison and aged it for three months. When there was no sugar left for the Brett to devour, we bottled it and let the funky character develop for another six months.

Taste is slightly dry sour-ish floral, old orange peel, yeast, minerals, flowers, wet hay, wet grass, mild brett, weeds, sorrel, bark, lemon, leafs. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh and watery mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Alengrin (4329) - BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2015
Brett saison from a 75 cl bottle at In De Wildeman during Carnivale Brettanomyces. Moussy and stable, off-white head, hazy golden blonde colour with peachy hue. Promising aroma of orange sorbet, buttermilk, apricot, sherry, pineapple, leather, green apple peel, bitter honey, white pepper, blood orange; crisp and estery onset, sour berries, unripe pear and citrus peel, medium carbo with a bready maltiness, only very briefly sweetish but then drying a lot due to the Brett, with a hayish and sherryish effect, funky horseblanket, grassy as well as deeply bittering, leafy hop bitterness and agreeably warming, gin-like alcohol. Great and complex saison.

Scopey (11952) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Leighton at the Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting. It pours hazy gold with a thick white head. The nose is hay, earthy, brett, mouldy, dank and Gorgonzola cheese. The taste is straw, hay, citrus, soapy, grass, pepper, white grape, brett, blue cheese and musty/dankness with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Decent, but too much mouldy/blue cheese aspect for me!

Theydon_Bois (16423) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Craft Clerkenwell, Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting, bottle thanks to Leighton, 17/09/13. Lightly hazed pale golden with a moderatley sized off white head. Nose is lemon rind, grass, tarte fruit, brett, orange pith. Taste comprises lemon rind, tangerine, grass, soured grapes, tarte peaches, bretty notes. Medium bodied, over carbonated - too much spritz going off, dry finish. Nice stuff but the over cooked carbonation lets it down a little.

Leighton (18030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co. - Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear, red-gold with a fine, white cream head. Big funky nose, light manure. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots of funk, moderate berries, bread. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Clean finish with more manure (paradoxically), light berries and further bready malts. Decent, although I like the regular saison more.

Bbno 13 01 brett aged saison 5.3%. Hazy orange gold. Bretty no doubt. Some sour notes. A decent pretty sour pale ale. I liked it best so far. 3.6/5 bottle at Craft Beer Co
