superspak (4306) - Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2016
750 ml bottle into tulip glass; Batch #4, bottled in 10/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, pear, melon, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, herbal, grass, light musty funk, light oak/vanilla, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy/earthy yeast and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, pear, melon, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, herbal, grass, light musty funk, light oak/vanilla, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, pear, melon, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, herbal, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/earthy yeast and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from carbonation and yeast spiciness as well. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth crisp, and lightly creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Brett saison. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/earthy yeast and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

wiedrzensky (695) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 3, 2016
Shared bottle. Pours is straw golden with big creamy white head that lasts. Aroma of wet leaves, lime, leather, herbs, very inviting. Lot of sour notes on tongue, lime freshness. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long and fresh finish. Awesome beer, well ballanced, recommended. I have to save some bottles for a summer.
