First of all, I hate that font. I had to look up the contract brewer to figure out what this actually is. I mean, look at it. Can you make out the word "Premium"? I lookiní at it and I see "Breminus" or "Dreininuz", but not "Premium". Geez, Iím all for cool labels and whatnot, but címon. At any rate, I liked the beer. Very pale yellow, decent head. Smells very yeasty and flowery. Very soft palate. Very quenching. Lots of floral, spicy flavors, with a subtle, peppery hop bite in the finish. I liked it.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy straw yellow pour with tight white foam head, funky zesty citrus aroma, sour farmyard funk in the taste with a nice zesty citrus background, slightly metallic must be the brett, some spicy herb action.

Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow body with a rather large frothy and fizzy white head. A touch worried about this one, as soon as I popped the cap the head came crawling out. After I poured the first glass I had to fill a second as the head breached the top again. Turns out itís pretty much OK though, just a bit excited I guess. Smells pretty interesting, canít say that I get a whole lot of the íspecialty grainí character from this, itís so big on the farmhouse yeast and brett that thereís not much sense of the malt at all. Thereís some nice floral hops though, which work really well with the brett. I really like the combo of brett and Saaz specifically. The flavor is very dry and full of pixie stick brett character and a bit of cobwebs and dust throughout. I think thereís a bit of an odd perfumy or soapy like flavor that permeates everything that may be from the mix of corn and rice with the funky yeastiness. I do tend to like the hops in here, but Iím not sure the complete mix works for me as a whole. Light bodied and dry with nice soft fizzy carbonation. Interesting beer for sure, but not sure Iíd buy another. Iím always for trying new things and stepping out of the box with recipe formulation, but sometimes taking chances means an occasional miss.

Thanks to Armin for sharing - turbid gold, fizzy but fairly well sustained head - light mineral in the nose at first, floral notes, very light pineapple Brett notes, very light cobweb/dustiness - full carbon in the mouth - dry, flinty, moderate mineral - dusty, earthy yeast - mild funkiness - light lemon and sage - quite good - note quite as good as the table beer, but still very nice.

Bottle. This one exceeded my expectations. Clear medium yellow with a nice luster and a fizzy white head. Crisp banana, pear, apple, and Brett fruitiness to the aroma and taste with a tart sweet bread finish and nice dry crispness to the otherwise bright and lively palate. Oh yeah, itís good.

Sampled on 2/14/2012 at Beer Revolution. This saison pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, cereal and yeasty. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, cereal and yeasty. The hops are herbal and spicy. Lively carbonation. Nice balance. A touch dry and funky, with some yeastiness. Not sure if the corn and rice go well with the brett. Itís a weird combination and Iím not sure if it works well. Will need to do some more research. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is cleanand smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

750ml capped and waxed bottle with some really nice artwork pours a cloudy golden color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and grass with some yeast and funk. Taste is a citrus and herbal hoppy bitterness with some grainy malty sweetness and a funky dry yeasty finish. Generous carbonation and light body. Certainly this is a complex and interesting brew, but does not agree well with my tastes.

wlajwl (5339) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Aroma is a mix of tartness and sweetness. The flavor is a hard to describe malt sweetness, tart fruit and a dry finish. Kind of strange how the adjuncts mix with the Belgian ale ingredients, it was interesting.

Marduk (5332) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2014
750ml bottle. Light brown color. Tiny to almost no head. Sourish, malty, fruity aroma. Grapefruit, grainy, wheat, sour notes in taste. Itís not you its me. You just canít arouse me :(
