Pours an entirely opaque peach with a beautiful big frothy head. Aroma holds lemon, spice, biscuit, yeast, earth, and some orange rind- much like the original. Flavor is also similar to the primary Red Barn, but has a more acidic and tannic quality to the overall feel. I bet this would get more intriguing if fhe brett were given time to really make a proper effect on this brew. Still, Red Barn is delicious, and this variant, though perhaps consumed a bit early, is a great brew as well.

750ml from the Saints Club. Nice earthy orange pour, a bit of sediment and lots of fluffy carbonation. Iíve enjoyed the regular Red Barn in the past, a modest brew more towards the bready and mildly fruity end of the saison spectrum (in truth, Iíd call it a biere de garde but whatevs). Only the mildest funk addition to the nose, tending to accentuate the tart apple notes a bit. As enjoyable as the beer is on its own merits, Iíd say that thereís possibly even less brett in the taste. So in terms of arriving at its distinctiveness, this oneís got some aging to do.

Bottle tasted a few days ago. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, with rocky white head. The brett is quite noticable, with lots of tart and barnyard funk going on. Lemon zest, hay, light fruit, herbal hops, and a touch of spice. Very nicely done, will be good to see how the brett develops.

(Bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of horseblanket, herbs, florals, and light lemon. Flavor of citrus, florals, brett, and herbs with a dry, bitter finish.

Sampled from the bottle at the excellent Saints and Sinners party at Port Brewing. First beer we tasted of the night revealed a murky golden color. Aromas were a bit citrusy and funky due to the added Brett. Very flavorful with citrus, yeast, bitter hops, and smooth finish. Prefer this over the original RB. Tasty.

From bottle at Sinnerís and Saintís Party. Young and tannic bitter, and a little phenolic, which I guess is to be expected from a saison, but just pales in comparison to other Lost Abbey saisons, like Carnevale. I suspect itís yound and will be awesome soon enough.

Bottle at Sinnerís and Saintís party. Pours a murky, light amber with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma is tart and spicy, of spiced, preserved lemons, yeast, and malt. Taste is clean and quite spicy, with hops, malt, citrus. Lingering spice. Nice, but should be better after it ages a bit.

Bottle at Sinnerís and Saintís Party last night. I can only assume that this is Red Barn Spiked with Brett. Its good, but the brett on this one without a doubt needs some time to set in, right now its a touch sharp. Pours orange with a bright white head. Nose is slightly bretty, tart, and light. Taste is sweet, bitter, hopped and a touch spiced.
