COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic farmhouse ale is brewed in small batches on a traditional farm brewery as it has historically been made for hundreds of years. This unfiltered bottle of seizoen, with its beeswax seal, is naturally refermented and carbonated with select yeast strains producing fruity and spicy flavors that are balanced by hops and a soft malt character. Special Brettanomyces yeast provides added dryness and crisp complexity. For the most satisfying results, store upright in a cold, dark place and enjoy in a proper glass.
Certified Organic

Une bouteille numéro 53483 de 750ml qui est supposée meilleure avant le mois de septembre 2018. Un liquide orange. Un nez de brett, quoi de mieux avec un espèce d’amalgame sucré-amère (sweet and sour). Une bouche simple qui est me semble manqué de gaz carbonique. Pas trop brett, pas trop acide, pas trop sucré, franchement un bel équilibre. Une finale qui semble fruitée avec une touche de blé.

*****I cut my finger trying to crack the cap. FUCK THAT BEESWAX SEAL!!!!!!! Une bouteille de 75 cl. Après avoir perdu la moitié de mon sang, je verse le liquide orange dans mon verre de Hill Farmstead. La mousse imposante trahit la présence de levures sauvages et autre champignon maléfique. Mon nez croule sous des parfums de bretts, de pêches et d’oranges sales, d’épices, d’herbes et d’objets animés et inanimés de la ferme. Honnête, intéressant mais loin d’être renversant. Au goût, mes papilles notent la présence de fleurs bretteuses et de choses fruitées citriques avec la présence d’un alcool légèrement poivré. En bouche, le liquide est de moyenne densité avec une texture légèrement huileuse et un pétillement qui devient rapidement modéré. La finale montre une certaine douceur maltée avec un souffle de levures sauvages et des houblons qui transpirent le citron poivré.

Bottle in recent trade thanks to Junstin! Pour is clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is chardonnay, subtle brett funk, light apple juice, and light pepper. Don’t think I have smelled anything like this before. Apple juice/ chardonnay blend. Flavor is really pretty subtle with light herbal saison notes, light bretty spice, and hints of hay and grass. Thin effervescent palate. Certainly solid, but kind of uneventful. Glad I got to try this one, have wanted it for a while.

Bottle received in trade. Thank you Bytemesis! Explosive crazy gusher!!! No more than a small white wine glass left of beer in the bottle. WARNING!!! Pours very hazy golden with a frothy white head that leaves some soapy lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and funky with crackers, mango, pineapple, pink grapefruit juice, lemon zest, starfruit, passionfruit, hay, dry soil, barnyard and grape skins. Taste is bitter, fruity and funky with crackers, grapefruit juice, orange zest, lemon zest, starfruit, passionfruit, leather, hay, barnyard, white grapes, dry soil, pineapple, unripe mango and subtle hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is round, slightly dry, slightly champagne-like, slightly boozy and medium bodied. Finish is bitter, fruity and funky with crackers, grapefruit rinds, starfruit, dry soil, leather, hay and barnyard. Tasty if slightly too boozy. Also the gushing is not OK. It’s not reasonable to loose more than half the bottle down the sink.

Bottle (Numbered 43969) poured into a tulip. Best by date is faded through the middle. Started gushing a bit but luckily didn’t really lose any of the beer. Pours a hazy golden orange with a massive head, four fingers worth or so. Head fades slowly leaving nice lacing. Aromas of barnyard funk, citrus, light vinegar, floral and grassy notes. Tasting notes of barnyard funk, Brett, citrus, lemon/lime peel, floral, grass, tart fruit. Medium body, tart and dry finish.

bottle shared. only got a little snippet of this one. appeared to be a hazy yellow with white head. nice aroma of brett and funk and a touch of sourness. the flavor was more of the same. nice mild brett and mostly funk. very tasty. the end was a bit crisp and tangy very good indeed.

Bottle: Starts off with a massive gusher that ended up all over the kitchen… beer all over the place. Not cool. Lots of sediment throughout the glass and a half that I salvaged. Caramel orange in color with a decent floral/farmhouse nose. Taste is heavy in the brett, florals, hay, and orange zest. Not spicy at all, but lively. Of course that could be the same ‘lively’ force that just decorated my countertop (and floor, cabinets, pants). Overall lacking in the depth that I’ve come to expect from a top-tier saison. IMO this falls below average in the style. Disappointment.

What a beer! On draft at the icelandic beer festival. Cloudy yellow. Citrus, yeast and oranges. So rich and complex. Citrusy finish. Incredible. Can’t wait for my first bottle.

750ml bottle, shared by alexsdad06. A mega-gusher, from what they tell me. Bottle SB 11837; best by 08/2017 (probably a good thing Brad didn’t wait that long). My pour was the last bit from the bottle. Completely hazy, cloudy amber orange color. Thin bubbly white head, dots of lace. Awesome bretty orange citrusy floral aroma. Big yeasty flavor. Nice bigger sour flavor, light sweet. Kind of chalky. Bigger body, smooth, lightly creamy lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Lightly oaky. Kind of spicy. Pretty damn tasty bretty saison.
