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.

Bacterial (2281) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle from a few years ago (2 or 3). Very slight gush when the cap was popped. Hazy light amber pour with a thick fluffy white head. Citrus and slightly funky and some really nice fruity character. Excellent taste. Lightly sour with lots of fruit, some spicy yeast character. Dry finish, with some bitter citrus pith in the finish.

scirtes (174) - POLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle, bb 11/2019. Pours deep yellow or even light amber, hazy, with large white, creamy head which has great retention, bautiful lacing. Aromas of Brettanomyces, lambik-like, fruits, with some with some banana notes. Taste is a bit sour with distinct pepper and other spices notes, typical for saison, and well marked bitterness. Rather high carbonation. This is one of the most complex saison-type beers I’ve tried. Very good!

hombrepalo (1956) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2015
750ml bottle from Binny’s. Golden color with a ton of floating sea monkeys suspended in the liquid. Aroma is aroma is citrusy, with Brett and dusty yeast. Flavor is dusty Belgian yeast with a mild flowery hint. The Brett has taken over at this point with the flower and citrus being a secondary note at this juncture. The finish is musty with light citrus crispness.

MotherBrother (817) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2015
Pour a really murky bright n’ crisp orange, with a small foamy white head aroma of brett, lemon peel, white peppa’ egg, asparges, grass, farmhous funky gewds, horse blanket peepee, green olives, some cheese thing going on. Taste is slighty sour up front, with some Spice to it. Mouthfeel is pretty darn crazy... Watery bodied, with the foam Growing when entering your mouth. Thanks @hoprider yet again.

ClarkVV (4346) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 17, 2015
2012 bottles (2 different batches) drunk roughly at 4-6 months of age and most recently on tap at Lord Hobo, 7/10/15
Massively carbonated, gushing bottles and also a large, well-retained white head on draught. Sparkling copper-gold liquid is unfiltered, but only lightly hazy.
Extremely fruity nose has notes of nectarine, peach, light banana and plentiful pale malt sugars behind it. Touches of lemon rind and black pepper provide dryness and the brett gains strength on the end adding light lime and other acids. Despite the brett and the phenols from the yeast, the malt is still very forward, even more so in the draught version. No alcohol noted.
Light sugariness up front is a little odd, but I’ve tasted it before from brett beers, and it’s added to lemony tartness and additional vanilla-like sweetness. Some slight pepperiness on the end ends up being most of the dryness in this thing. Breadiness builds up quickly and eventually is all I can taste. A sweet-and-tart flavor with expansive carbonation making the palate full and fluffy. Like lemon sugar coated white toast...
The bottles were a bit more palatable than the recent draught version but still lacking an overall rustic character. Just too much bread, punchy fruit and fluffy carbonation.

A: Lemon, passion fruit, yeast T: Yeasty, nutmeg, blood orange O: Big head and long lasting. Not the taste I was expecting, very malty and yeasty. Reminds me of a blonde. Complex flavours!
