3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Tasting Room. It poured a hazy golden color with tall white foam, lasting with nice Belgian lace. True-to-style aromas and flavors, too: grainy, rising dough, freshly baked bread, faint earthy/citrusy hops, spicy Belgian yeast esters and phenols, black pepper, apricots, bubble-gum, even a little barn-yardy Brett. Light body, spritzy carbonation, crisp finish. Really good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - The beer poured hazy dull golden with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of bretty wildness, nectar fruit and mild toasty malt. Medium / full body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor start with the aroma traits, but has more of a tartness to it. There is also some citrus, nectar fruits, pepper, earthiness and buggy wildness that’s probably coming from the brett. The finish is peppery and fruitier and comes across as fairly crisp and clean for what it is. Very nicely done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a hazy gold color with a small white head. The aroma is certainly funky, with bretty character; lemon citrus, earth, straw, sweet bread, and dried fruits. Flavor of sweet malts, lemon, bretty funk, mild spice, mixed fruits, earth, and straw. Medium-bodied, with a funky, bright mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I don’t prefer it to Boulevard Saison-Brett but this is a very solid brett saison from Perennial.
