4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2015 My Bottom Line:
This dazzling Saison’s citrusy, herbal hop profile satisfies from aroma to finish, accompanied by precise, soft cereals and delicate yeast rusticity.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the cloudy yellow. It fizzes away a bit too quickly for my liking.
-Noble hops and yeast signature combine for truly compelling results.
-Carbonation is intense and prickly, yet manages to create a fluff up the mouthfeel.
-Malt profile is bready, baguette-like.
-This is as quenching as can be without ever being too timid flavor-wise.
-The finish is a return of all that was present in the aroma and flavor profile. Just lovely.
-There is A LOT of yeast in this bottle. The second glass, even though the bottle had been vertical for many hours, is turbid, full of yeast. The aromas and flavors are still there, but in a rougher, murkier state. There must be ways for them to not add so much to each bottle...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
