4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Right one the bottle is opened, tons of brett aroma coming through on the nose. On closer inspection, get some mild malt sweetness, the orange peel and spice. Appearance is quite interesting, looks quite unique -- almost like carbonated pineapple juice. Head is very thin and frothy. Taste is delicious, quite sour upfront, spice in the middle and a clean finish with a hint of Belgian yeast. Don’t get much of the advertised oak barrel, but maybe I’m just comparing this to the Dulcis Succubus. Medium bodied, highly carbonated and highly refreshing.

Tap at Pony Bar, New York September 2013. Light amber colour with a sticky white head. Tropical fruit aroma that carries over into the flavour.

Bottled. Hazy yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, hay, pear, and grape. Fruity and sweet, with biscuit malt and a thick body that keeps it a bit too heavy, especially for 6.5%. Still, enjoyable beer.

The body is light and hazy with a bright straw yellow color when held up to the light. The head on top is tall fluffy. It quickly settles down to a tighter half inch cap of foam that hangs on well and makes some spotty lacing. In the nose I pick up notes of funky yeast, sweet fruity candy and faint citrus with some light spicy phenol as well. The aroma here is lovely and just pulled me in. On the tongue the sweet fruity candy like notes meet the dry funk of the yeast as well as the mild phenol spice and pale wheat like malt. The balance here is just on the dry side and in the finish it adds just a touch of tart citrus and hop bitterness which yields one heck of a refreshing and modestly complex brew.

On tap at Appalachinan Vinter. Pretty decent for a saison. Definitely reminiscent of champagne. Pepper, citrus and spice come through in spades. Light on the palate and refreshing. Great for the style.

Decent Belgian ale, a bit malty and not yeasty enough, or light bodied enough for a saison. Still a good quaff, and nice to know the USA is getting better at the style.
