Bottle from Belmont Station, PDX via Patrick. Pours a medium orange, very clear, little to no head. Fluffy, yeasty, dry, funk. Body brief but tart, finish has a fruity sweetness. Grapes, cherries? Really nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy light to medium orange. Small frothy white head, fairly lasting with some lace. Aroma is yeasty, brett, light fruity, light peppery, sour and woody, white wine. Flavor follows. Medium plus body. Pleasantly tart and sour, some funkiness, little dryness. All that and yet still so very easy drinking.

Des céréales rustique et une explosion d’agrumes surettes animés par une effervescence vigoureuse qui s’attendrie avec le temps. Bière de soif exceptionnelle.

Pours a hazy golden color with a very white head. Smell is farmhouse like with a nice malt base, fruit, some citrus but with a hint of wood and lambic as well. Taste is very subtle flavors...wood, citrus, apricot ending puckeringly dry and woody. The body is light but slick with effervescent carbonation. A real treat.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wish lister. Cloudy orange. musty aroma. With extended oak aging critters and all, this really blurs the line between a Saison/farmhouse ale/wild ale. Heavy oak present in the aroma and especially flavor. Full flavored and bodied for 6% beer. Tart and fruity, with a dry peppery finish. I like this very much. 4.25 if I could.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle - batch 7/11, bottle 355/1599. Pours a hazy golden amber with a big fizzy rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is interesting - soft brett, wood, floral notes and some fruits.
The flavor is sweet tangy fruits with some earthy kind of funky brett that is a little acidic. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, I like what the brett barrel adds to the saison. One of my favorites from Crooked Stave.

Poured a nice golden color with a thumbs width white head. Sweet and a little tart in aroma along with the funk. Flavor was great. A nice sweet malt backbone to it, some juicy pear, and a nice tartness to it. Medium bodied, smooth, and kind of creamy mouthfeel. Really liked this one a lot, would love to drink again.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio)... Poured golden with a mild, quick forming head. Straight up good saisons with a nice funk and spice from the brett. Earthy and grainy with a hint of citrus and other acidity. Pepper spice and a hint of funk that balanced and just right. Enjoyed this quite a bit.
