Bottle shared at tasting, sent up from Homer, thanks! Pours a cloudy yellowish gold with a thin head, the aroma was mainly of barnyard with some of the hops coming through too, kind of different, flavor is musty at first then finishes with a hop kick, pretty slick mouthfeel with a bubbly finish, nice.

2013 Vintage ... Plenty of carbonation in this one the cork popped off .... almost clear golden blonde pour with lots of rocky frothy white head and light sticky lacing has some serious fizzyness .... aroma of peppercorn, raisins, some funky barnyard/brett and lemony fruity hops .... taste is of peppercorns, spicy fruity saison yeast, some funky brett and spicy lemon/grapefruit citrusy bitter hops with light fruit (raisins) detected ..... has a dry lingering bitter bite .... mouthfeel is fizzy and bitter .... nice and easy drinking saison with nice bite to it

Idiosynkrasie (3623) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
375ml bottle. Hazy yellowish golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Quite typical Saison aroma, spicy yeasty, slightly floral, some barnyard funk, malty basis. Taste is minimally tart, spicy yeasty, some barnyard funk, a touch of lemon, minimally floral and herbal, amply bitter hoppy overtones. Not overly bretty.

Pretty cool beer with nice interesting bretty character. Herbal and lightly medicinal brett character on top of spices and oaky vinous character.
