Bottle. Pours bright golden orange with a faomy white head that settle faster than expected. Aroma is mildly tart citrus, Belgian yeast, grassiness, and a breadiness. Taste has good medium-tart peach and other citrus notes, with a good bretty funk, some peppery notes, and light maltiness. Finishes with a good dryness. I really dug this.

Pours golden, with fast dissipating white head. Barnyard Brett funk nicely balances the peach on the nose. Nice bright flavor. Iím a big fan of how the Brett interacts with the fruit. Lingering sweet fruit flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on 9/30/2102. This saison pours a light orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to emdium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet and spicy, with peaches, honey and perhaps a touch of funk. Medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, with peaches, honey and some tartness. The hops are earthy, herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Interesting beer, with a nice mix of flavors. Kind of sweet, then it has the dry bretty finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

This is like a sour crossed with a shitty beer. Aroma and taste are decent. To sum it up I think it is a sour pilsner. Kinda grows on you because of the ceral qualities.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Pours a fairly clear golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind a bit of lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet wheat and grains with some peach, lemon peel, molasses, Belgian yeast, and coriander.
T - Starts off with a mix of sweet grains and wheat with some tart peach and lemon peel and some coriander. Through the middle, some molasses comes through with some Belgian yeast, some more spices, and a bit more tart fruit. The finish is a mix of sweet grains and wheat with some peach, lemon zest, and Belgian yeast.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and tart finish.
D - Very drinkable. Good complexity and overall balance with the addition of the molasses and peach.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bottleworks. Gold pour, white head.
I was hoping for something like the genius that was Ericís Ale, maybe with a saison twist, but no luck. Instead, I feel like Iíve had this beer before. Another too-sweet, too-high-in-alcohol, incongruous brett American saison. Brett and yeasty peaches in the aroma, peach juice and sticky New Belgium brett in the flavor. Not particularly dry on the close, despite the commercial deScription. Simply not in the running.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours golden with a white head. The aroma has a lot of peaches with some light notes of tart lemon and some spices. The flavor is sweet and fruity with peaches. Molasses arenít really all that present except to dirty up the mouthfeel. It has kind of a soapy, mildly spiced finish. Heavy mouthfeel. Ho hum.
