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.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 2, 2012
750mL, Bottle No 5B 7665, Best by 12/2016 from Olive Tree Market in OB, $11.19.Effervescent medium gold with a big three finger pillowy off-white head with great retention. Definitely has some fruity pineapple brett that is a little sour, but not crazy so thus far in the nose--the large head could be dampening the aroma, though. There is also some dusty white pepper and the earthy manure notes that seem pretty signature to these guys (at least the other two beers I’ve had) are present, but more hanging out in the background with some mineral notes. Flavor didn’t seem quite as bretty or fruity, and the earthy rustic and pepper notes get much stronger. Flavor also is showing some alcohol as well, though no stronger than the stated 8% ABV. Bone dry finish, bitterness peaked at a Medium body with high carbonation. Pretty tasty, need to pick up a couple more bottles of these

Habanero (2490) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a large off-white head. Aroma of funk, brett, spice and citrus. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice and crisp Saison.

nickd717 (3473) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 25, 2014
375ml bottle from Plumpjack. Cloudy orange with a huge billowing white head with bubbles characteristic of brett. Bretty aroma, spicy with tart peach notes. Funky. Nice flavor, with brett dominating. Dry and a tad tart. A bit of a weird finish I can’t put my finger on. The strength of this beer comes through in the long finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Very solid overall.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy dark beige color ale with a huge dirty head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with light funky yeasty notes is quite sublime. Taste is dominated by dry rustic notes with some funky yeast notes and a dry floral finish. Dry Brett notes are clearly identifiable but are not overwhelming and keep the malt base flavours intact. Body is full with super great carbonation (a bit of a gusher as well BTW) and no apparent alcohol. I could drink this beer this every day of the year!!!

lusikka (6069) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite floral with some coriander, brett and orange juice. Flavour is very juicy with orange juice, some mango, floral bitterness, lemon juice and Saison yeast. Mild sourness. Medium bodied and smooth mouthfeel. Very fruity and jam-like.

Pours golden color with a small head. Mellow fruity aroma, some spice and yeast notes too. Apricot, peach and hay on the flavor, yeast and herbal notes. Easy-going, softly carbonated and moderately sour. Decent.

375ml bottle from Belmont Station

Pours dark orange with a foamy head. Aroma of bretta, ripe fruits, yeast, spices and malts. Taste is earthy, spicy and yeasty with some bretta notes, ripe fruits and sweet honey notes.
