3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled, 0.75l, sampled 2010-02-05) Hazy golden with a small, firm, white head. Mild aroma of peachy fruit, some berries and a touch of bretty sourness. Flavor is sourish, pale malty, softly fruity, somewhat yeasty and slightly alcoholic. Medium body with soft CO2. In real Saisons, the spicy, tart and dry freshness makes it tempting, but here the stuffy sweetness has been attempted to compensate adding brett - with pretty lame results. Not a bad beer, though.

bottle. pours a hazy orange with a frothy white head. aroma is a nice lemon, lactic acid, funkiness. bright. nice. flavor is melon, toast, light booze anad some light dough. a bit of a disconnect between the lemony lactic nose which is almost gueuzelike and the melony, burnt, rustic flavor. but it works. solid beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL bottle, corked & caged (2010 version sampled fresh): I waited 10 days for it to settle and clear up after the shipping from Cali. Pours a clear golden yellow with an incredibly fluffy off-white head. Huge, floral and sweet melon aroma…sweet berries and fruity yeast. Smooth, sweet palate, with a slight spiciness in the finish: anise, ginger and coriander. The funkiness comes after the first glass…tart, yeasty, and honey tartness. A wonderful celebratory beer!
