4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stunning pale golden pour w/ a retaining white head that leaves lacing. The aroma contains a generous amount of spices. The taste is very Belgian esque. It’s very spicy w/ a little bit of a bite in the middle. It’s rather soft on the palate & finishes relatively clean making it dangerously drinkable at over 8%. Quite possibly the best saison I’ve come across!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours murky golden with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is of malt, spice, funk, and yeast. Taste is of funk, soap, and yeast. Has a nice spice taste to it. Has a bready malt backbone. Mouthfeel is very soapy, almost fizzy. Body is very carbonated, and goes down easy. Aside from being very soapy, it’s a very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slow gusher. Pours a near clear pale yellow with a large frothy, medium to fully lasting head. Nice aroma with a light floral touch along with citrus and funky barnyard yeast. The brett character is very nice! Taste is nice also, balanced with a light sweet note at first into a pungent and lightly spiced / peppery finish. Semi-dry and lasting peppery finish. This is a fine ale indeed. Drinkable yet potent with alcohol, and loads of good flavors!
Medium bodied with close to high levels of co2.

Bottle, 00741. Pours slightly hazy yellow, with a big creamy head receding to finger thickness. Aroma is sweet tart yeast, with notes of funky earthy brett, roasted malts with bread, as well as phenolic notes of red wine and kelp. Rather odd actually, in a nice way. Jolly good. Medium body, with average to fizzy carbonation. Flavour is tart, wooden yeast and roasted malts with grain and cereals, as well as over-ripe fruits, pepper and notes of bretty farmhouse. Dry earthy finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Bvery. Aroma is great, taste is not. Lot’s of funk in the aroma. Taste is dank with lots of pepper notes. It’s a miss for me.
