3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Gusher! Not terrible, but I definitely lost an ounce or two. Oddly not a hugely heady pour after that though. Hazy gold with a 3 finger, fluffy white head. Aroma of bretty funk, stone fruit, pepper, sweet fruity and floral notes, sweet and toasty cereal, we limestone and juicy citrus hops. Flavor is bretty funk up front, followed by sweet toast and cereal, stone fruit, berry fruitiness, pepper, light doughy yeast, wet limestone, nice, sweet and juicy citrus hops and a lingering funkiness along with nutty and cereal notes to the finish. Medium body with a juicy to chewy entry, moderate strength, hugely blanketing and fairly sharp carbonation, which all fits the flavor profile well. Really good overall, nice hop profile, nice balance, the yeast component works well. Unusually well put together for a 7% ABV Saison.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought from Buffalo, drunk in Toronto. Pours a very cloudy orange-blond with some fluffy white head. Spicy brett nose than leans a little toward the vinegar with a little grape and grassy malt. Taste is a spicy brett, with flavours of pepper, mild vinegar tang, and a hay malt. Overall a very nice beer, but it’s picante-y nature doesn’t lend as well to being a sipper, unless you’re in the mood and see it coming.

22oz from the Bodega. First of all, the head is outrageous. Totally over foamy. The smell is distinct spice saison. Taste is nice. I’d usually have more to say, but I drank this with really spicy Thai food.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
65cl bottle, shared with friends. Pours super golden with big white frothy head, perfect appearance. The nose is very lemony and sweet. Very Belgian flavour: the yeast dominates but there’s also an appreciable amount of hops. Some sour notes on the aftertaste, far from a lambic though and very easy going. Medium mouthfeel, slightly over carbonated. Nice saison.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clearish golden with a thin foamy white head. Pleasant floral and yeasty funky farmy nose, a dash of lemon pepper and Brett funk. Nice crisp but funky flavor with farm tones, light lemon, touch of hay and pepper. Tastes really authentic and bretty.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber into a tulip. Pours a cloudy light yellow, with a huge fluffy white head that persists for quite a while. Little lacing. Nose is honey and citrus. Taste is honey, citrus, Belgian yeast notes of clove and banana, and a little earthiness on the finish. Just wonderful. An excellent saison.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy, golden yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is slightly tart fruit. Flavor is very dry with just a touch of tart sour funk in the finish. Very effervescent, helps balance out the tartness from the yeast. Finishes very dry with just a touch of sour fruit.
