pour is completely hazed lighter golden yellow. Nose is fairly nice, lighter on the farmhouse yeast notes, strong sweet ester notes of banana and light clove spice. Taste is a bit bigger, still lots of banana and light spice as the farmhouse note shines through a touch more but still very subtle. Very well carbonated with a light airy body and moderately dry finish.

750ml. Slightly darker than straw colored pour with plenty of foamy white head and residual cling. Nose of yeasty hay, citrus, bread, and grass. Taste follows the nose. Fairly light on the funk factor with a dry finish.

750ml bottle from Belmont Station, split with my bride. Pours a hazy, orange amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is fruity, banana, clove, bubblegum. Medium to heavy on the palate with soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, ginger, clove, more bubblegum, with a nice spicy finish that lingers for a while. Not as good as the Seizeon Bretta, but very nice on its own.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy pale honey color with a medium creamy white head. Aroma is pretty spicy with light fruity notes...touches of clove, bubblegum, and wheat. Flavor has a touch of funk and leather with nice spice and earthy bitterness...drinks like a saison but also reminiscent of a tripel. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a nice dry earthy/leathery finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gorgeous amber that glows in the light. Quite cloudy. The head is a mass of very fine, bone white bubbles.
Aroma is fresh grain, lemons, limes, hay, grass, pepper, orange rind, spices. Very dry and barnyard-ish.
The taste starts slightly sweet with some citrus and peppercorns. It gets a bit drier but still maintains a fair amount of sweet malt. Lots of grassy hops and semi-funky saison yeast flavor.
Fine, gentle carbonation. Full mouthfeel. Very drinkable.
Tasty stuff. This would be an excellent saison

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, according to the other ratings I knew it to gush but it really gushed. Nice hazy orange pour with big rocky white head, aroma brought notes of big peach, white fruits, pear, pineapple, some slight passionfruit almost, hints of nice grass, earth, and spicy notes come from the yeast, touch of biscuit and bread to compliment. Taste is a mix of sweet white fruit pits, peach, pear, pineapple, some slight orange, hints of grass, pine, earth, slight yeast, hints of a nice biscuit, vanilla note, finishing fairly dry, and bitter. Would never guess it was 7.5%, nicely done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange sunrise body with ebullient tornado of carbonation feeding an overly foamy head. Nuanced bouquet, light pepper, a hint of matured grass, and a puff of clove. Medium-bodied and exceptionally well balanced between light esters and phenols. A watery prick of clove, a pinch of pepper, and a soft, smooth grassyness. Crisp, quenching and utterly sessionable with a mild tannic clovey finish.
