4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Generously shared by one of the fine Portland RB folks at a tasting - Pours hazy yellow / orange with a huge off-white head. The aroma has funky husky brett, mild fruit, some toast, herbs and graininess. Medium grainy body with nice semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts off with rustic leafy grassiness, herbs, dry crackers and toast. The finish is quite funky and buggy and has that nice leafy quality running all the way through. Excellent saison.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a beautiful beer in all respects. It’s great in a bottle and great on tap if you can find it. I can find this at my local grocer at $11 / 750 ml and it’s very hard to beat in terms of price / availability. Fruity flavors come out big time, hard to know if they are hops or yeast (Gonna guess the latter from Mr. Wyeast here) but fantastic either way. Really hard to find fault with this one. This was one of the first brett farmhouse beers I got excited about way back and the more I drink in the style the better this one seems in comparison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very cloudy golden orange pour with a small foamy head that fades to a thick ring with big bubbles. Aroma is a powerful mix of grapefruit and brett barnyard. Also get some leather, lemon, light banana and spices. Tastes surprisingly sweet and juicy at first and then quickly turns dry and tart. Grapefruit juice, brett, leather, coriander, pepper, apples, and banana. Medium body. Sorta fizzy carb. Fun beer to drink. I liked this more than I thought I would.

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
