3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and straw-colored with a small, creamy, white head. The nose delivers notes of funky old cheese, fallen oak, lemon and sourdough. Light to medium-bodied with vibrant carbonation. Tart and bitter - apricot and citric acidity up front; tangy-sweet plum and a modest measure of crusty bitterness on the backside. Lengthy, tongue-numbing finale.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - thanks jbportland! Just a bit of a gusher on opening. Pours hazy golden yellow with a large white head that dissipates slowly leaving solid lacing. Aroma is really vinous, oaky, lots of Bretty funk. Flavor follows, dry with light plus tartness, lots of Brett, and the good kind. Medium light body, high carbonation. Excellent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At Eurhop festival in Rome-Italy. Little quantity from a bottle shared among the customers. Courtesy of the brewer himself. Pours yellow cloudy with a great white foam. Nose is acidic, vinegar, farmhouse yeast. Mouth: round saison with the right acidic feel which makes it a balanced and unique saison.

Bottle shared at a tasting. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is juicy, really hoppy, fruity with lots of white wine. Taste is winey, flour-y notes, really bready, citrusy hoppiness, mild farmy charcter, tart finish. Palate is light and dry, super easy drinking. Tasty stuff.

Thanks Matt for bringing this to Tommy to share. enjoyed 4 ways in stemware.
A - Nose has a minor hazy orange and a 2 finger creamy head that fades fast to next to nothing.
S - Has a mild acidic and tart lemon skin bitterness like european hops and some solid wheat and tropical fruit.
T - Taste has a very clean lively fruity bitterness. I get mango and papaya with peach toward the end. Great clean tart notes, some wine barrel notes, clean grape skin.
M - Very dry with a light sweetness.
O - Great beer. deserves the current rating. Love this beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a Fisher though. A cloudy apricot with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good; bretty and oaky with a mild vinous presence. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied, fairly dry mouthfeel. Good beer.
