COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hopped saison.

Editorís note: The 2009+ versions are spiked with Brett at bottling. Bottles from 2009 are marked as such, although 2010 and 2011 bottles appear to not note the vintage on the label, but might be printed on the neck or base.

andersand (529) - MalmŲ, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2009
Hazy pale golden with a dense inviting white head. Aroma is slightly bretty, fruity sweet and refreshingly inviting. Flavour is rather sweet, fruity with subtile brett and a dry finish with a small lingering sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth with fine carbonation which adds to the drinkability. The beer goes down easy, rather refreshing but slightly too sweet.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy brass golden with a small froth of off-white head. Aroma of dry bretty funk with some biscuity malty notes and a touch of light fruits. Starts with pretty good malty fullness with some caramel toffee sweetness and grassy hop balance. Has a lot of bretty hay and horseblanket character along with a touch of coriander spice and lemon zest before a smooth, slightly bittersweet finish. A well-balanced, authentic and enjoyable brew.

Yellow orange pour with nice head. Aroma of brett, mango, peach, pepper. A bit of earth and wheat. Lemon, fruit, mango, peach in the flavor, with some funk and yeast. Brett. Banana and pepper. Pretty nice mouthfeel. Pretty refreshing, definitely dig the brett.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2009
750mL bottle. Pours yellow golden, capped with a moderate sized ivory head. Really enticing aroma, with wild, soapy, lemony, earthy brett aroma at the forefront. Wheat, pepper, and spice add to the aroma. Flavor begins with wheat, lemon and soap. Pepper and banana notes build towards the finish.Finishes with brett, citrus, and some white pepper. Really enjoyable. Itís been a while since I had the original, but I think I like this brett spiked version much more.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Golden color with small head. Bretty, lemon aroma. Wow, nice flavor from the hops complementing the fruity yeast. Itís wine-like in some aspects. So light-tasting yet mouth-warming. Itís better than the best cocktails. Amazing beer. Score one if you can.

pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2009
750ml bottle from armanettiís... Lost my original rating so this is the truncated version... aroma was sweet tarty with a subtle barnyard Brett presence that comes and goes.... Flavors were similar but with much more subtle flavors where the Brett didnít seem to take off at all.

drewbeerme (3869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Bottle, hazed golden with white head. Nose has herbs, hay, banana, ripe fruit. Flavors are herbal, straw, banana, kiwi. Thin body. Brett didnít seem to come out much and seems like it much have died...the bad luck just continues for LA.
