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. 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.

MotherBrother (812) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2015
Pour a really murky bright n’ crisp orange, with a small foamy white head aroma of brett, lemon peel, white peppa’ egg, asparges, grass, farmhous funky gewds, horse blanket peepee, green olives, some cheese thing going on. Taste is slighty sour up front, with some Spice to it. Mouthfeel is pretty darn crazy... Watery bodied, with the foam Growing when entering your mouth. Thanks @hoprider yet again.

2012 bottles (2 different batches) drunk roughly at 4-6 months of age and most recently on tap at Lord Hobo, 7/10/15
Massively carbonated, gushing bottles and also a large, well-retained white head on draught. Sparkling copper-gold liquid is unfiltered, but only lightly hazy.
Extremely fruity nose has notes of nectarine, peach, light banana and plentiful pale malt sugars behind it. Touches of lemon rind and black pepper provide dryness and the brett gains strength on the end adding light lime and other acids. Despite the brett and the phenols from the yeast, the malt is still very forward, even more so in the draught version. No alcohol noted.
Light sugariness up front is a little odd, but I’ve tasted it before from brett beers, and it’s added to lemony tartness and additional vanilla-like sweetness. Some slight pepperiness on the end ends up being most of the dryness in this thing. Breadiness builds up quickly and eventually is all I can taste. A sweet-and-tart flavor with expansive carbonation making the palate full and fluffy. Like lemon sugar coated white toast...
The bottles were a bit more palatable than the recent draught version but still lacking an overall rustic character. Just too much bread, punchy fruit and fluffy carbonation.

A: Lemon, passion fruit, yeast T: Yeasty, nutmeg, blood orange O: Big head and long lasting. Not the taste I was expecting, very malty and yeasty. Reminds me of a blonde. Complex flavours!

Defreni (2838) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2015
Flaske. Orangegul først klar men en del diset færrest slut i flasken. Kraftig duft af Brett og en smule frugt. Smagen er frisk Brett og lidt til, der mangler lige lidt for at ramme en orval men dejlig øl.

shoulderbroken (2733) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is great, Brett, fruity, apples, light funk, yoghurt. Taste is similar, Brett to the front, citrus, tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, strawberry too, light dustiness. Like a fruitier orval. Maybe a bit of booze in the body after the first few sips.

On tap at Fermentoren. Hazy orange with a lasting white head. Funky and floral aroma with a touch of citrus. Dry hoppy and funky flavour with a slightly tart finish

dandeman (654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Un bel olfactif de levure aux accents de Bretts. Les fruits sont présents avec de la banane et du bonbon aux fruits. Également présent, des accents de veille grange et de crin de cheval. Légère présence de fruits tropicaux. Olfactif assez complexe et très odorant. La mousse blanche se bâtie et se densifie sur un liquide plutôt doré / orangé. La tenue de mousse est très longue. L’attaque est tout en chaleur et en notes expressives de fruits et d’acidité. Les bretts, avec leurs accents de vieille ferme et de crin de cheval servent de base aux notes de banane, d’orange et de bonbons aux fruits. Par contre, la finale présente de longues trainées d’esters excessifs frisant les notes de vernis à ongle et de solvant. La bouteille a-t-elle été soumise à in mauvais entreposage?? Cette bière représente néanmoins des qualités remarquables.

BMMillsy (1756) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Killer saison with lots of brett and lots of funk, nice honey and hay notes. Light sweetness balanced by light bitter hops. Man, this will hold up next to just about anything in the style. Excellent stuff.

750 bottle with the tightest cap and stickiest wax. Well, do you like Brett? This might not even be beer. But 3/4 liter of straight up yeast. Pours the murkiest, chunkiest of pale yellows. Reeks of Brett. Tastes like Brett burried under the hay in a barn. Some gentle pear fruit flavors complement it nicely. Touch of funk. No sour, which I guess never shows up. Just the Brett funk.
