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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2013
This beer is lovely, thanks to Oakes for the find :) it has a lot of Turkish dried apricot character in all respects. The color, the juicy middle, the fructose finish, the balancing acidity. The lively hop and brett add extra dimensions, allowing both to sneak into tasty and proper pockets of happiness. The brett is apparent most in the aroma, and as the palate attenuates, in the finish. The natural lemon candy and chewing stick of licorice sweetness is one of the many things that make this beer outstandingly characterful and multi-dimensional. The hop is another. Gorgeous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

** Bouteille avec 1 an d’âge ** Une légère éruption volcanique à l’ouverture de la bouteille résulte en une mousse atomique dans le verre. Ce nuage mousseux surplombe une robe dorée voire orangée, et très trouble. Le bouquet est constitué de fruits très mûrs, comme la pêche, l’abricot et la mangue, ainsi que quelques arômes de cuir. Le funk se fait plutôt discret en bouche, laissant toute la place à ces mêmes fruits mûrs et sucrés. Il y a quelque chose de vineux également, même si la bière n’est pas affinée dans des barriques de vin. Très intéressant. Tout ça dans un corps grassouillet où chaque gorgée tapisse le palais. Superbe.

Full golden-orange color with white head and nice lacing. Aroma of bretty funk, hay, apples, wow! Taste is banana, sweet-sour, dough, a little bit boozy towards the end. Just amazing, I am absolutely overwhelmed!

Bottle. Seizoen Bretta is bottle-conditioned with pear juice, giving it high, natural carbonation. Pear, citrus, mushroom, horsehair, subtle breadiness and hints of floral spice swirl in the aroma as the bubbles pop. It’s a bit sweet for a saison, with sugary pear syrup, lemon zest and stone fruit leading the flavor. The brett does its best to balance, adding an earthy, musky quality without being overtaken. Incredibly fizzy, the beer expands in the mouth like a balloon, providing the tongue plenty of attention before a fairly sweet, alcohol-free finish. An aged bottle -- about two years old at this point -- displays pronounced pineapple along with pear skin and a bit of hay.

rayaron (613) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond. Thanks DSG. Cloudy orange with huge off-white head. Aroma of candy, sweet ripe banana and peach, milky with notes of caramel and bubblegum. Sweetish and sour flavor, notes of banana, pear and apple, light hoppy bitterness and notes of leaves. Lively carbonation, medium to full-bodied.

drpimento (2425) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2015
Very good Brett Saison. Appearance is a mammoth off-white, extremely frothy head that settles slowly, loads of lace, and a hazy orange amber color. Aroma is yeast, malt, pears, plums, spice. Flavor’s similar to nose, slightly sweet at first, then a bit of carbonic tang, followed by rest of characteristics and finishing again with a bit of bittersweet. Body is very good for this style and is the soft side. Overall, quite a drinkable beer.

King_Alex_II (465) - SWITZERLAND - APR 10, 2015
Light cloudy orange color. The smell is sour tempting (lactic). The taste is a little too boozy and not as sour as expected. A dry aftertaste. Not my favorite saison, but it has its strong points.

RedSox2004 (1411) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 25, 2015
Champagne apricot color, with tons of bubbles, big rocky white head and very nice lace. Aroma of dried fruit - pears and melon, with earthiness and spices. Slight bitterness up front with white grape and lemon tartness in the middle, finishing dry. Bright Belgian yeast throughout. Light body, creamy mouthfeel, huge effervescence and a dry crisp finish.
