Several bottles at Ginger Man. The aroma has a lot of bright Brett character. Dry and flinty with a lot of bright pineapple character and some bright fruit and a little bit of soft light fruit. There is a touch of soft sweetness on the back that I didn’t expect but kind of works. Lemony and fresh with a lot of light flinty flavour. Tasty.

Bottle. Pale golden/straw beer with a big white head. Tart/brett aroma with grain and light earth and tropical fruit. Tart and grain flavor with some frutiiness. Medium bodied. Grain and tartness lingers with earthiness and spice. Finishes dry.

Smells outstanding! Definite wild ale smell. Pours murky yellow with thick, beautiful head. Tastes clean and crisp, with bitter notes, and a mildly sweet. Very well balanced. Slightly sticky finish.

cheap (3974) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
On tap and listed as stillwater premium pilsner so I guess this is where she goes. From the start this was a really fun beer. Cloudy almost white perhaps light vanilla color. The bar called it a pilsner and its listed as a specialty grain but I think its a saison. Very uncivilized and farmy all over. Funky back yard after a green grass rain overwhelms. Quite entertaining fer sure. This was an unexpected pleasure floating around in a sesspool of ipa taps, wew. Easy and friendly finish, just the right amount of tartness to make you wonder if it was there or not. Yes, overall fun beer experience, thanks!

Golden color with a fluffy white head. Light to medium bodied with heavy carbonation. A lot of Belgian yeast and Brett on the palate. Clean, fresh finish. I’d like pilsner a lot more with Brett.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Very pale golden yellow, enormous puffy rocky white foam that takes forever and a day to settle out. Aroma is fruity, light corn, grainy, and a slight brett dryness. Taste is sweeter, light florals and fruit, biscuity, if I sip the foam I get that Orval type brett must, but in the liquid I only get light pineapple. This is so good I just wish they left the ’Post Prohibition’ descriptor out because this isn’t a Pilsner, it is a light Belgian ale or saison.

jbeatty (1020) - New York, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle, 03/04/2012. Pours dull opaque copper, impressive head that leaves sudsy, sticky lacing. Aroma thick with yeast and brett, wisp of white fruits, base of spicy toasted malts. Taste is herbal spiciness, yeast, bright pale malts with subtle lemon, bitter dry finish and aftertaste. Nice, clean ale with plenty of character for the low ABV.

Bottle picked up at SL.. Light orange, almost yellow color, good head. Nose is slight tart notes... some spices, and light malt. Taste is light tartness, lots of carbonation, flowers, spices, crystal malt. No traces of brett??? Lots of the pilsner taste. Tons of flavor for a beer thats only 4.5 percent. Overall: Nice saison..
