4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium orange with a large (2-3 finger) white dense frothy head that receded slowly down to a medium capwhich lasted throughout and had excellent stcky sheets of lacing.
the aroma was of a bold ly harsh grain malt and a musty Brett yeast with notes of citrus (lime and lemon peel), corriander and a strong fruity ester (apples and pears).
The taste was a bit grainy and a tad sweet with a nice strong fruity presence early on, and then became rather yeasty and a little tart with a nice crisp spicy taste and a build up or tatrtness towards the finish. the flavor stuck to the taste buds for a good while with a spicy tart yeast taste left to linger on.
mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a nice dry texture and a prickly carbonation.
Overall this was a superb representaion of the style. It possesed a nice crispness and a ton of flavor, now add a great drinkability and you have yourself one awesome brew. You can bet your sweet bottom that I am going to have another.

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.)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 didn’t 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 can’t 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.

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
