3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque orangey golden with a lacing, off-white head. Very fresh and fruity nose, oranges - with some phenols lurking in the background. Medium body, very soft on the palate, again this orangey fruitiness, but now the yeast really comes through and so does the phenols while the Brett doesn’t really steal the show. Alright but far from outstanding. 110614

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a bright medium orange with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of sour fruit, wet hay, vinegar, sourdough bread, belgian yeast, and some grass. Taste is wet hay, vinegar, sour fruits, pepper, sourdough bread, and some light grassy hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a sour, dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a excellent Saison that is definitely Bretty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Beercraft. Hazy gold with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is an explosion of strawberry-banana smoothie, heavier on the banana oil candy note. Flavor gives an upfront ester sweetness with fruit salad notes that immediately transform into plasticky brett phenols before circling back to an unripe kiwi thing. Weird. Very bretty but I’m not sure I could identify this as a saison if I was ordering blind. Just a strange beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home as I continue my weekend of Oregon brew. Pours hazy orange gold with big white head. Nose is Brett and apple juice. Tastes of tropical fruits, ripened pears, cheap apple juice, Brett, hay, peppery, and ginger. Semi sweet finish. Kind of odd after taste. Had much higher hopes for this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glad to be one of SHERM1016’s friends on this tasting! Sample from a shared pour. Nose of fruit and spice....initial taste is a very sour / dry / almost puckering dryness...but so good.....sample was too small to get much past that...excellent.
