COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hopped saison.

Editor’s 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.

from Erzbierschof - slightly hazy golden beer under a huge white foam; a fair presence of bretts, notes of old apples, pear, wood and barnyard; medium-bodied, lively and gently acidic, some bitterness and long fruity and woody notes in the finish - complex and refreshing

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
2014-11-29. Hazy dark yellow body, small white head. Aroma is lighty lemony with a lightly funky quality, fruity, light brett. Smooth average bodied palate, decent carbonation. Enjoyable but a little milder overall than I had hoped. My notes suck because my iPhone deleted them and I had to start over :( Bottle shared by Will
