Shared bottle with Timfoolery at DBS. Aroma of lemon and you could smell the brett. Usually not a huge fan of this style, but this one was a huge surprise. Just the right amount of tart sweetness made it my favorite of the day.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasting temperature from 13,8°C to 16,9°C. Very vivid : about one third spread over the table clothe, which drove me very upset as always when it happens !! And thanks the bottle is large enough to be able to taste conveniently !! So, when mastered :
Cloudy orange yellow body headed by a fine white foam. Aroma of apricot, peach, yeast, alcohol, dough; yellow fruit. Taste first surprising : sour, astringent, resinous, quite different from aroma; grounding bitterness; hint of honey. Matches lots of varied cheese : vieux boulogne as well as shropshire; matches well a salad of raw beetroot (which matches any beers, actually). Getting even better as temperature is rising.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy hay, straw, cereal and grain for the malt, grass and lemon for the hops, moderate damp wood for the yeast, with notes of pear and coriander. Head is huge, frothy turning rocky, white with excellent crusty lacing and is fully lasting. Color is muddy medium amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, a little slick, with a fizzy carbonation. My first beer from this brewery, and is was a beauty. Easily in my top 5 for Saisons.

Murky yellow with a White head. Fruity more than spicy and yeasty - though it is there.
Flowery, creamy, dry. Really nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared, thanks Will. Bretty all the way, lots of barnyard, fresh orange, tart berries with a sour edge, floral notes, hints of goat cheese, dry earthy finish. Great complex brew, I guess that could be what you’d define as terroir flavors.
