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

Beerman6686 (4324) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2014
This one poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was big fruit, Brett, wet rocks, grainy, and herbal. Flavor was similar, but incredibly balanced between light Brett, citrus fruit grassy hops, light lemony character and cracked wheat. Pretty much exactly what I want in a saison, and way better than any saison Iíve had from Hillfarmstead.

CampesinoTino (761) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2014
750 ml Bottle. Golden peach colored in appearance with plenty of off-white head. Aroma is dominated by floral citrus, Brett, green apple and white grape. The flavor starts out with a moderate dose of Brett funk, fruity esters and lemon rind with a bit of apple and pear in the background. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with heavy carbonation and an extremely dry, tart finish. The Brett blends quite well with all of the complex fruit flavors.
