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.

Bomber bought through craftbeer.se. Pours very hazy orange with a big frothy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some soapy trace and lacing on the glass. Smell is funky and fruity with white bread, grapefruit juice, papaya, pineapple, hay, dry soil, lemon zest, orange zest, pine needles, barnyard and lemon grass. Taste is bitter, fruity and funky with crackers, grapefruit juice, hay, pine needles, pineapple, unripe mango, lemon zest, orange zest, lemon balm, sweet basil, dry soil and barnyard. Mouthfeel is dry, champagnelike, tiny astringent and medium bodied. finish is bitter, fruity and funky with crackers, grapefruit rinds, hay, dry soil, barnyard, unripe tropical fruits, lemon balm and lemon zest. Very bitter modern saison, bit on the rough side yet very refreshing.

Bottle to tulip
First and foremost...brett, lemon, wheat, bread, some fruity espers.
The colour is a light yellowish amber. This wasn’t agitated at all, but it poured with a 4 cm frothy white head. This head shrunk to 2.5 cm, but then stayed a long time. When it finally settled down, there was lots of lacing and little puffy clouds of head, just hanging on.
Taste is a little spicy, with some molasses, and malt. The brett is there, but just sitting in the background but it does build a bit in the after taste.

Draught at Delirium Reserve. Glowing orange-golden, oily, with a fine head. Nose of butterscotch, oranges, some dust. Somewhat funky, grapefruit flavors, spicy, lots of diacetyl, though, which basically ruins it.

How do you make an already good beer better? Repeat after me: Throw some brett on it on it. Throw some brett on it on it.

Pours golden with very little head. Nice aroma and average taste. Not the best evil twin but still pretty good.

65 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy yellow with a little sediment and a huge white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma and flavour are brett, funk, spices, yeast, and citrus - with a dry finish.

Tap at The Six Gill in Fremont, but weeks ago at this point. Nice funky grassed out nose, hints of lemons and citrus. Flavors are what you’d expect, funky barnyard, grass, and a nice hint of spice towards the finish. Good, but could be a bit louder as far as my palate goes.
