Borne of our abiding friendship with Belgium’s La Brasserie de Blaugies, Pierre-Alex and Kevin Carlier brewed with us here in June of 2013. The resulting beer—brewed with hops from Mons, Belgium, and 30% raw organic buckwheat; fermented in both oak barrels and stainless steel; and aged for many months in those same barrels—is among the finest farmhouse ales we’ve ever produced. Vibrant, lively and sophisticated, its bracing tartness belies its elegant wine-like profile. We were honored to have brewed with Pierre-Alex and Kevin; we are delighted to share it with you.

Pour hazy light orange with a small white head. Aroma has plenty of citrus up front, stone fruits, slight grass, slight peachy, quite floral juice, very slight barnyard, sour sweets, slight wet wood, slight white grape skin. Pretty darn delicious and complex. Taste is rather sour, but is very well balanced with juicy fruity sweetness. Medium and super refreshing mouthfeel, with a fizzy carbonation. Thanks a lot to Erik for bringing this. Lovely.

Dangerous Bottleshares XL forealz edition. Pours hazy orange amber with a white head. Aroma is amazing. First of all its funky with stable notes, musty oak, cheese and slight leather. Then there is also fruity notes like peach, orange, ripe pears and slight apricot. Aside from that there is some bread crust and weak esters. The taste is tart and balanced. Notes of bread crust, tart citrus notes, green apples, champagne notes, grapefruit and funky basement. Just deep and complex and extremely good! Best saison I’ve had for sure and one of the best beers as well!

Vestergaard (1748) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2016
Bottle thanks to Bursprak at Dangerous Bottleshares XL 4Realz Edition Motherbrother, Hoprider and Aaron. Pours a hazy golden amber with a huge, white head. Aroma is crazy complex and balanced! Oak, leather, light vinegar, spices, stone fruits, pear, bread, wheat, citrus, funk, light cheese, light grain, vinous. Taste is surprisingly tart, light estery sweetness, oaky dry, light vinegar, gets more spicy and has a very low bitterness, lemony or grape fruit juicy finish. Rather high carbonation and a super crisp body. Very nice saison!!

Pours a deep hazy orange with a white head. Nose is great with lemon and big funk, flowery yeast and mineral peach. Taste is so balanced with some dry yeasty saison notes along with zesty sour notes. Super pleasant finish really mineral and sour. Thanks Bursprak for bringing this.

I figured I should probably rate this now that I’m drinking it for the 7th time. I have two more bottles. Thanks Adam for opening one of yours. This beer is killer. Pours a dark golden color with some retained white head. Smells like lime and lemon and grass. Flavor is so nice though. A really beautiful balance of some white wine, a very manageable but defined tartness, and a smooth citrus finish. I love this beer. Could drink it every day if I had the opportunity.

Palme (4180) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 28, 2016
Shared 0.75l bottle shared @ NYC flat . It wants out! This is a cloudy looking one, yellow golden colored with a nice big white fading head. Smells really good this! Dryish, mild fruity, grapes, pear? Yeah, some pear. Nice stuff for sure. Tastes superb. Lemonic sour, a little sharp. It’s high on the carbonation, mild oily in the mouth. So refreshing. Amazing tasty. Zesty, mild honey in back. Just a lovely one. 19.06.2015
