750, corked and baled. Thanks, C! Pours a murky dark goldenrod. Dense creamy white head that sticks around. Big eggy nose, super funky, showing earthy minerals. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Earthy, caramel, a bit of salt, some lemon, and lots of egg yolk on the mid palate. Long earthy eggy finish. Still very crisp and refreshing and approachable once you get past the eggy intensity of the nose. Lovely beer. Would drink again and again.

deyholla (7315) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle shared by Jim, thanks! Pours a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a really nice funky note with underlying grapes and a touch of earthy grains. Flavor starts with light fruits with sweet grains and has a really nice funky finish.

drfabulous (4340) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 24, 2013
750 ml bottle from The Beer Trappe. Pours a ton of carbonation. Big brett nose. Big lemon taste upfront. Slightly dry. Lemon citrus throughout. Yeasty. Intense.

conway (1781) - - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is musty with notes of oak and lemon. Taste is Brett and citrus with an earthy finish. Palate is incredibly dry and practically evaporates in your mouth. This is nice and funky without being over the top.

Sarlacc83 (1084) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 21, 2013
750mL bottle A: Pale, semi-opaque gold with a firm lasting head. N: Plenty of earth, pine, banana. Some mustiness. Lemon and oak. Very well balanced with its floral and wood elements. T: Soured and quite bitter. Really falls apart for me here. Wood adds another bite. Too many hops, not enough malt balance. Yeast and funk are prevalent. M: Crisp, but biting. Feels like this is stretched out too far on the tongue. O: Not my favorite example of the style. Leans too far towards the funk and oak without any balance to bring it back to enjoyable.

vvesside (256) - California, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle shared with timfoolery. Solid saison with earthy notes, a bit of brett, champagne yeast, and lemon. Good beer.

jredmond (5815) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Vinny shared at Franks. Pours a bright, hazy yellow golden body with nice active white lacing. Aroma is lemon and funk. Mouthfeel is medium and evervescent with nice carbonated body; notes of lemon, funk, oak and grass. Very nice saison.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2013
murky yellow-gold, puffy white head, spidery lacing. Lightly estery, doughy, heavy grass and pine, very rustic and balanced. Flavor lightly estery, merging with grass mid and ultra dank finish, zesty carbonation.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of Brett, Some light fruits, spices, pale malts, and a light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice Brettiness. Average texture. A good beer.

Bretty, a touch lemony & sour, nicely constructed. Bright yeast, grassy, definitely a Brett saison. Easy to drink for the style.
