On tap at Frisco Taphouse and Brewery in Columbia, MD.
Cloudy, hazy, translucent amber with 1-finger ivory head and extraordinary lacing.
Aroma of funky wet hay, floral hops, apple, yeast and sweet candy.
Taste of hay, honey, sweet caramel, bitter floral hops, pine, Belgian yeast, banana, cloves and spice. Bitter from start to finish despite the sweetness, but with a sour, medicinal aftertaste Very strange taste sensation that makes be think of hay straw soaked in honey.
Medium/full body and light carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served in a tulip glass at the Beer Bistro in Chicago.
Served with a two finger pillowy clean white head and a hazy golden body. The unmistakable smell of Brett-induced funk, with floral and fruit notes on the nose. Opens with the taste of flora and citrus, transitions to earthy, brett funk in the midpalate,and finishes dry and just a bit tart with strong notes of pear. On the lighter side of medium bodied however still features a fairly creamy mouthfeel. A very enjoyable and well-balanced brew.

650 ml. Amber-orange with a lasting disc of cream. Aromas of earth-spiced apple, musty grape skins, resin, citrus bubblegum and toffee. Taste is the same blend, plus some pith and wood on the finish. Medium body is to the hoppy, dry side fairly smoothly carbonated, and easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to snifter. Looks decent; honey-colored with low carbonation and thin lacing. Smells like honey (in a good way). And my wife just told me it was brewed with honey, so go figure... Tastes pretty good. Like a (yep, you guessed it) honey saison. Don’t get much (if any) Brett though. Mouthfeel is average. Not bad, but I wish there were more Brett to it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head. Citrusy, hoppy, and somewhat sour. More apparent on the tongue. Overly dry and bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, best before 2015. Thin white head. Nice mostly hazy orange amber color. Little bits of lace. Good crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice light sweet taste, zestiness, bit of bitter. Aroma of lemon peel, honey in the finish. Hint of alcohol. Very nice and enjoyable saison, the honey really works well here. Pretty drinkable, and quite tasty

Cloudy golden color. The nose is a lovely mix of Brett and herbal aromatics. Medium bodied. The honey overwhelms the mid palate, but the finish is bright and balanced with yeast and herbal notes.

500ml bottle from Ridgewood Wine & Beer, Raleigh. Could the name have something to do with M. Witter? Hope so. Hazy straw gold pour with a fine head, plenty o’ lacing. Sharp yeasty nose with plenty of pepper and dry hops, definitely the way I like ’em. Spicy, prickly mouthfeel. Flavors add some dough, grass, light phenols, and just a smidge of tartness. Pretty nice.
