3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this at Borefts BF, Bodegraven, Netherlands, Friday 26th September 2014. The colour is a rather murky golden edging towards orange colour. Aroma is spicy, a little pepper and yeast. Taste is also a tad yeasty and rustic but the fruitiness in particular citrus comes bowling through. Its pleasant, not great, but v.pleasant. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov14 3.3

"What an awesome surprise this beer was! One of the best saisons I have ever had. Perfect feel (so many can be too carbonated) for the style. Sft yet lively. Just enough barnyard to notice, with big florals, light fruit and a pleasant dryness. Highly recommended."

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (gusher). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of plastic/vinyl, vegetables, hair spray, pineapple, gasoline. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Well, there’s good Brett and bad Brett, and unfortunately this falls in the latter category. Dirty smelling and tasting, without much at all to entice...very industrial phenolics, chemical-like. Surprising considering that the regular Beaster Bunny is an ok beer, but it illustrates how important yeast is. Couldn’t choke down more than a few sips before dumping it down the drain.
