tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Bottle: Almost fully opaque golden body with a big bubbled, chunky and cloudy white head; huge, long lasting, and generous with the lace it leaves behind. Aroma is sharp Brett, mild lemon zest, blanket and cottony funk, faint must, some cracker malt, and a touch of funk Brett tartness. Taste is a ton of Brett funk. Musty, blanket, cottony and almost cheesy. Light grassy notes. Corky, with a sharp zesty hint of lemon and very faint white pepper that fades into a super funky, musty finish with a good amount of dry oak. Highly carbonated and sharp.

Poured a cloudy yellow/orange color with a stable white head. Aroma is slightly tart with lemon and some floral notes. Taste is nice and crisp with lots of light fruit upfront with oak. Some lemongrass and floral notes at the beginning. Flavor transitions to a tart lemon flavor that is earthy and funky. Finish is hoppy with floral hops and a touch of oak.

Tasting at Eugene’s
Bottom of the bottle. Cloudy blond color. Very good character from the yeast, strong, a bit funky but also earthy, manure, and hazelnuts.
I wish I had it cleaner, but it’s very nice.

TheJester (2533) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle. Hazy decent head. Mild aroma is typical saison with sweet orange and no spice. Citrus turns sour in the flavour, and there is a grassy note. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromat to głównie praca brettow, czyli jest funk ale też owoce cytrusowe, morela. Smak lekko gorzki, dosyc wytrawny. W smaku funk, cytrusy. Bardzo orzeźwiające i pyszne piwo.

Bottled (thanks MT). Hazy yellow colour with a big foamy white head, which leaves good lace. Aroma is nicely funky, citrusy and spicy along with mild yeastiness. Flavour is very similar, but has a quite nice dry sourness to it, which suits in really nicely into the brew.
