3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle purchased a year ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($12.49). Pours a hazy yellow-apricot hue with a big three fingers of fluffy foam with good retention. AROMA of musty basement, semi-sweet bready malts, wet firewood, pear, and a bit of grassy hops. FLAVOR of tart lemon, green apple peel, apricot a moderate brett bite, Belgian yeast, and lightly bready malts. Dry and rather tart finish. The brett here is stronger than I might have thought (perhaps due to my year of aging?), but does not overwhelm. Good saison. (290, 888)
