Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Thick and very distinct Brett aroma - super delicious. Medium body, a dry and tart citric zest with some salty minerals. Astringent finish. Lovely. 271213

Batch 6 / 2013. 375 ml bottle into a wine glass. Opens with a slow gush over. Pours a hazy dark orange with a finger of soapy white foam. Excellent lacing and retention. Aroma is heavy on the vinous oak barrel with some light vanilla tannins. Familiar siason notes of citrus, grass, spices, and some bread. Taste is bright and acidic with lots of orange, lemons, and spices balanced by a smooth oak presence. Finishes musky with brett notes. Grassy and floral. Creamy mouth feel. Overall I preferred this to Vieille as it seems to be a much larger and interesting saison. It is heavier and more robust though.

375 ml bottle. Cloudy yellow/orange pour, nice white head that fades pretty quick. Aroma - lots of light herbal notes, yeast, white grapes and some light citrus. Taste - lots and lots of funk, that finishes very dry and tart. Not bad but its a bit too tart which seems to dominate but a nice beer nonetheless.

tmoreau (3554) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2015 12.7 oz./375 ml. bottle shared and poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey hue, with a light & bubbly layer of soft white foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was yeasty funk, light citrus, and white wine. Light bodied with decent carbonation, hop influence was moderately bitter, the taste was tart, but the mouthfeel came off a bit thin, possibly prompted by the distinct dryness. Still caught my attention. Shared another 12.7 oz. bottle with friends, and this time, the texture was better, a touch of peach was noticed in the nose, and hints of herb & spice, possibly some anise, where evident in both aroma & flavor. +.1

Bottle pour. Crooked Stave Surette. A delicious oaked up saison that is smooth and balanced. This beer has an amazing buttery finish. Cheers!

2013, Batch #6.
Appearance: The body is a milky orange to hay color, like looking at unfiltered peach juice. The head is short but covers the top with a fuzzy white coating. The ring is dense and creamy.
Aroma: The aroma is a mix of sweet and sour, very fruity and enticing. Sweet peaches, nectarines, tart cherry, hints of vinegar, cotton candy, new leather smell, and slightly earthy, sort of piss smelling too. Boy this is complex, I canít possibly describe this fully. Juicy and enticing, itís very nice.
Taste: This is tart and lemony with a faint sweetness hinting of oranges up front. As the sip progresses I get dry leather and lemon with some oak tannins. This is a bright beer for sure. The finish adds some sweet candy like flavors. Overall, though, this is a bright dry citrusy beer that finishes dry and really challenges the palate.
Palate: Juicy and soft, mild carbonation.
Overall: This is one of the most challenging beers Iíve ever drank. At times I find this fruity and sweet with cotton candy and peaches, and other sips I find it to be dry oaky and reminiscent of chardonnay. This is an elegant beer that I want to re-visit one day, itís pretty fucking awesome.
