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 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

Aroma is great subtle funk soft citrus biscuit yeast light pepper notes. Taste is soft crisp peppery yeast malt funk biscuit. Very dry and excellent! Thanks hannont!

Fritz123 (1346) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Pours a deep gold into a small snifter. Modest head and some lacing. Aroma is pleasant with fruity esters like peach and lemon. Wheat, brett, and some other floral notes also on the nose. The taste is a fruity pop with peach and lemon. Brett and some biscuit hit on the back end. Some light floral notes with spices and white pepper as well. High carb, light body. Solid easy beer with lots of flavor. Great in the style.

Fashawn (439) - Montesarchio, ITALY - AUG 15, 2015
Biondo paglierino denso, pieno di velature, sfumature bianche, con una schiuma compatta ed enorme bianca, persistente per tutto il tempo della bevuta. Aroma molto funky, pieno di riminiscenze di sudore di legno e di cantina, leggerissima nota di formaggio, sentori di mela, pera, limone magari. Aroma bellissimo ma nulla a che vedere con il sapore. Funky senza mai diventare realmente acida, con passaggi veloci ma precisi verso la frutta dolce, una leggera amarezza che ricorda il verde e gli aghi di pino. Incredibilmente complessa, è sufficientemente carbonata ma anche scorrevole, densa sul palato, appiccicosa e piena. Si beve però con estrema facilità. Retrogusto di frutta a polpa dolce, ed un po’ d’erba. Una birra realmente incantevole, che lascia di stucco per la sua bontà-

Bacterial (2281) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle from a few years ago (2 or 3). Very slight gush when the cap was popped. Hazy light amber pour with a thick fluffy white head. Citrus and slightly funky and some really nice fruity character. Excellent taste. Lightly sour with lots of fruit, some spicy yeast character. Dry finish, with some bitter citrus pith in the finish.

scirtes (172) - POLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle, bb 11/2019. Pours deep yellow or even light amber, hazy, with large white, creamy head which has great retention, bautiful lacing. Aromas of Brettanomyces, lambik-like, fruits, with some with some banana notes. Taste is a bit sour with distinct pepper and other spices notes, typical for saison, and well marked bitterness. Rather high carbonation. This is one of the most complex saison-type beers I’ve tried. Very good!

hombrepalo (1956) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2015
750ml bottle from Binny’s. Golden color with a ton of floating sea monkeys suspended in the liquid. Aroma is aroma is citrusy, with Brett and dusty yeast. Flavor is dusty Belgian yeast with a mild flowery hint. The Brett has taken over at this point with the flower and citrus being a secondary note at this juncture. The finish is musty with light citrus crispness.
