4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Batch #8. This brew pours a cloudy pale golden color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dank hops, yeast and citrus. Medium-bodied with a delicate floral hops character and flavors of citrus, earthy yeast and vinous oak. The finish is slightly funky with an oak and hops aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 My Bottom Line:
Coniferous brettanomyces builds floral and citrusy fireworks which can be witnessed while being hypnotized by an underlying oily, vanilla-rich oak.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the cloudy blond.
-The big, natural bubbles remain soft on the palate.
-The flavor profile is also peppery at times.
-The rusticity in this one is ably balanced with the oak. Both are nicely aromatic.

Bottle purchased at the brewery. This is delicious and I wish I bought more. Pours golden straw colored with white foamy head. Aroma is lemony funk, peach, vanilla, lacto, biscuit maltyness. Taste is nicely tart and moderately sweet with fruity notes and a light spicy hop backbone. AMAZING.

My son brought a 750 ml bottle back from Maine. It’s hazy yellow in the glass, not real pretty, but what a unique saisson, a little oak & a lot of lemony hop flavor!

750ml bottle (batch 8) opens with a small gush and pours hazy golden yellow with 2 fingers of head. Nose is orange, funk, citrus, oak. Taste is woody apple skin, brett, orange, funk, barrel, hay, very tiny bit of tartness on the back end. Finish is a complex bretty citrus with nice funky oak notes. Great.

Bottle from lukaduke, thanks again. Pours a beautiful burnt orange with a white head. Has a beautiful citrus and fruit aroma that I get with most Belgian farmhouse. Has an amazing citrus taste with a hint oak. Has a clean finish with no bad after taste.

Rate number 200. Bottle supplied by my dad... Thanks dad! Slight gusher, pours a nice golden color with a massive head. Smell is oak, chardonnay, tart funk, and the basement in the house I grew up in. Taste is chardonnay, nice barrel character, leather, slight tart. Very dry finish. Great beer.
