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

Dunt (288) - Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle sent by black13 on BeerAdvocate. Thanks again for this Michael, I absolutely love this beer and am stoked to have another bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange in color with two fingers worth of big, frothy head. The brett seems to already be taking a firm grasp of this. The nose is spectacular, it has gentle tartness, pepper, grass, pear, orange, and some other fruit. Flavor follows the nose, bright fruit, tart, some earthiness, and pepper. Light mouthfeel, gentle tartness, slightly dry, and a moderate finish. One of the best saisons in the world. Itís balanced, has excellent depth in its nose and flavor without being overbearing, just a great drinker all around. This is such a crushable summer beer (even if Iím drinking it in December).

toxichop (351) - South Gate, California, USA - DEC 6, 2012
A bit of a gusher but not to bad. A: lemons, hay, brett, pretty clean smell overall. P: hazy orange/amber with a big white head that settles down. T: pear and apricot juice, mild earthyness funk, touch of spices, ends a tad dry. M: Soft carbonation and very silky but then moves on to having a very watery mouthfeel. O: this brewery is doing great things, just not enjoying the gushing.

jbeatty (1039) - New York, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle, 11/29/2012. Opens a bit of a gusher, pours cloudy burnt orange, huge dense rocky head, great retention with thick lacing left behind. Aroma is a cloud of yeast and tropical brett notes, light citrus and floral notes, mild spices and hay malt, herbal hops and earthy barnyard finish, subtle tartness. Taste is nice earthy funk, juicy tropical fruits and citrus, herbal bitterness offsetting. Medium palate, rather creamy. Wow, very nice.

2012-12-21, draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver, 7-4-8-4-15=38
Hazy golden color with small head. The aroma is sour, a bit cheesy. The mouthfeel is rather smooth; it has a cellar character, but also a very nice fruity, jam flavor, tea, jasmine flowers; the Saison character is milder than expected, but itís also more fruity.
A bit confused on draught, but nice.

Orange golden color, cloudy, with creamy head. Nice aroma of hazelnuts, light Bretts. Highly carbonated, spicy flavor, a bit salty, with a hint of bitter oranges and some ending astringency and sourness, from the Bretts. Rough but good.

Apearance is light orang with frothy head. Nose is brett funk and bananaphenols, and pinapple fruit. Tasts follows nose with orange juize zest, banana, pinapple, picking on the earth funk whole time. This is a viscous saison contibuted to by the amount of brett, very good.

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Immediately after opening, the foam came out of the top of the bottle, so it seemed quite over carbed. The aroma was quite apparent with notes of carmel maltiness, spice, floral and funk. The taste was a very funky, barnyard with carmelly malt notes and a very dry finish. A touch too effervescent, maybe.

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 10, 2012
750 ml. bottle. It pours a hazy orange color with a super frothy off white head. Really cool formations with the foam. Excellent retention and lacing. The aroma is lightly phenolic with lots of pineapple, peach and spice, bread and soap. Pretty nice and very bretty. The flavor has more of the same. Lightly tart and pithy with orange, pineapple, peach, musty basement and some light citrus rind bitterness and brett phenolics in a dry finish. Medium bodied. Very well done.

Drank out of a short pilsner glass, from a 750ml bottle. Pours with with a very frothy, light head. Very cloudy and light amber color. Slightly sour and spicy aroma, with an emphasis on yeast. Taste is very complex. Nice malt, with strong clove flavor. Finishes with a flavor of wheat toast with homemade orange marmalade. There is more to this beer, but it is hard for me to describe it-definitely an adventure for the taste buds. If you love citrus-spicy beers you can't not like this. One of my favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KegOstertag (92) - - NOV 9, 2012
Drank out of short pilsner glass out of 750ml bottle at home. Aroma- smells like white belgium. Somewhat soapy with orange notes. Appearance- murky golden orange color with light head. Clouded. Taste- complex taste of citrus mixed with soap for lack of better words. A little bitter. Palate- ok. Same as taste. Overall- very interesting beer. Hard to describe. I understand why some love it but it is not for my taste profile.
