4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally reviewed on 10/13/2013. 750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Huge white head atop a hazy pale orange body. Beautiful lacing and great lacing. Bretty and acidic aroma. Pale malt. Lemony citric acids. Slight funk. Taste is a bright lemony tang. Earthy bretty flavors. Slightly sweet pale malts. Bitterness in the finish. Medium light body. Well carbonated. I was tempted to say that this a fairly straightforward oak brett saison, but that sounds foolish.

Bottle bought in Copenhagen 2013.
Golden with a white head. Pleasant aroma and taste of brett, hay, citrus, light cookies and light hops. The finish was on the dry side. A refreshing one.

@ Gyllenbock 15-7-22: doften är jättetrevlig med tydlig brett och hö. Tyvärr faller smaken ganska flatt. Snälla toner av hö och örter.

750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sweet, fruity, yeasty, faint citrus in aroma. Horse, leather, earthy, yeasty, sour taste. Farmhouse and lemon peel in aftertaste. Acidic mouthfeel. Not my favorite style, but this one is so refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Fresh, crisp, but acidic aroma, a bit harsh, some saisony aspects. Straw, small head, not too brief. Harsh dirty palate, acidic and sharp and cidery. Brett, my arse. Are therse guys just more yanks who haven’t got a clue which bug is which, and what each one does. Fortunately whatever bugs are in here have left quite drinkable brew. Almost, but not quite, refreshing - the dryness of the yeast is a bit dirty and earthy. Does cover the 6% fairly well, though. At least it’s not a cookie-cutter saison, but it’s a cookie-cutter gone-sour beer. Good brewers managed to work out how to stop their beers going sour. Brave to fight against that trend. Some succeed, some don’t. Ug, second pour more lemony, more refreshing aroma, but taste is just shitty lemon juice. Fuck that, I’ve thrown away homebrews like this.
