3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is juicy fruit with moderate levels of tart lemon and some bittern rind. Flavor is a light berry fruitiness, no banana, with a refreshing yeast character including light hay and spice. Light to moderate clean bitterness, light citrus. Tartness comes through more as it warms; at first, I wouldn’t have noted the presence of Brett. Later, it becomes apparent just how well the sourness is integrated with the hop flavor and regular yeast. A lovely saison, utilizing Brett, yet remaining distinctive from the relatively homogeneous category of highly sour beers. The bitterness, however, can grate on you after a while.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy opaque golden with a frothy and lacing off-white head, shaving foam style. Quite a gusher that keeps coming. Intensely astringent and leathery Brett aroma. Medium body, a sweet fruitiness, heavy, herbal brettyness leading to a dry finish. Very Bretty indeed but in a somewhat rough way. 200912

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This burst out of the bottle. Glad I had the good sense to open it over a sink. Opaque, hazy pale yellow-orange with a thick and pillowy off-white head. Armoa is spicy, with lemon, yeast, and only a mild Brett presence. Flavor is an initial blast of fruit and citrus that quickly gives way to lightly spicy, lemon-forward, cereal and bread, followed by a lightly tart, earthy, very dry finish. Maybe too young of a bottle for a more dominant Brett presence (drink-by date of 6/2017...five years out). Very enjoyable.
