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.

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 Ive had) are present, but more hanging out in the background with some mineral notes. Flavor didnt 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

On tap at St. Augustines on Rare Beer Tap Takeover. Aroma is bretts, fruity, skunky, even with spoiled meat notes. Taste is sweet-sour, with hippy bitterness and skunky-meaty notes.

larsga (7220) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2016
Gusher. Huge offwhite head. Hazy opaque orange body. Funky orangey barnyard aroma with odd herbal notes. Dry-sweet spicy herbal funky taste with orangey notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish spicy fruity bubblebum aftertaste with strong herbal finish. Strange beer, and dirtyish and unbalanced. Did not really enjoy much. (0.375l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

My original rating on saturday, june 16, 2012750 ml bottle courtesy of theisti by way of bvc. Best by 10 / 2016, side by side with the regular version. My notes are hard to read. Very drying, floral, perfumey... yeah that all sounds like a brett beer. Beautiful full thick head. For some reason I wrote that I was confused by the beer. I wish i could drink this again. 7/4/8/3/15 = 3.7
In hindsight, its hard to rate a beer like this on a first try. I liked it but I didnt want to like it too much.

I did a blind tasting if Brett Saisons with the Seattle crew. I picked out the beers but did not know the order. I gave this a 3.6, nice to know it was close to my actual original rating. But I have my fave beer (Blvd Saison Brett) a 4.0. Meaning I should add about 25% to the rating. So, maybe like a 4.5.

I am drinking another bottle right now. Had it side by side with the regular Seizon. I like the beer but, again, I cant help comparing it to the Blvd Saison-Brett. It has almost nothing in common with the regular version. The brett is dominating and almost overly dominating. The bottle is empty on the areas where you find the best buy date and bottle number. There is a bit too much acid and a bit thinned out by the brett. Its a really sharp herbal brett and an acidic kick. My wife puts it best, I want to like it more than I do . So, at the end of the day, I am leaving the rating as is.

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 21, 2016
Appearance was cloudy light golden with creamy lasting whitish 2 finger head, lacing thoughout. Aromas are fruits galore of Apricot, lemon, orange juice, gauva and melon. Taste are apricot and guava upfront, then slight tart cherry, orange mid sip. A wonderful fruity mix of Brett and soft palt sweetness that blends perfectly. Palate was creamy CO2 with light-medium body, then beautiful balanced fruity Brett-like funky finish. Overall a superb fruity and funky brew. Vintage 2014
