VinegarStroke (280) - Napa, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle (750ml): cloudy, light honey color, thick head and great lace. Slight sour funky edge to a complex malt driven beer. Straw aromas, creamy lees, fruity profile. Dry almost sour and moderate to low bitterness. Quenching. Long medium weight complex. Wonderful flavor, balance and complexity.

Sampled on 3/2/2012 at the Bruery Tasting Room. This saison pours a very cloudy yellow gold color from the tap. Medium to large sized white foamy head with good lacing and nice retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, bretty, spicy and dry. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, orange and orange peel. Hops are herbal and earthy. Lively carbonation. Very dry. Brings out the spices a lot more. Interesting being able to sample all three versions of this beer. The amount of brett really changes the character of this beer. The bottle release is probably the best version. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly spicy.

In comparison to the 2011 and 2010, this comes in third just ahead of the 0% Brett version. Amping the Brett really doesn’t add as much to it. I still got that barnyardy flavor in 2010 and 2011 so this pales a bit.

BREWMUSKCLES (2234) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2011
very nice looking golden yellow ale hazy with a dash of orange. refreshing and sweet flavors of vegetable and fruit with hop character, a bit of white pepper and a creamy consistancy, still quite refreshing. some fleeting tartness and touch of leather wafting in order.

Draft. Bright hazy golden color. Aroma of straw. Taste has soft sourness. Decent character.

JoeTheYounger (1144) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - FEB 6, 2011
on draft along side all five versions of this. I liked this one better than the regular. It wasnt as bitter and had more funk going on througout.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2010
Cask at Blue Palms. Hazy bright yellow gold with a one finger off-white head, good retention. White pepper stale saltine nose with some fruity pear and very faint leather notes. A bit of earthy herbal hops are also present. Flavor has a light apricot sweetness, and although relatively dry and just a hint of leather present, the brett hasn’t been in this beer long enough to distinguish it from the less brett-ed, regular version. Bitterness peaks at a 3. Low low cask carbonation with a light body. Good, but like I said, not really an improvement.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
A: The pour is an incredibly cloudy golden-yellow-orange color with a finger’s worth of white foam. S: The nose is very "saisony". Good tropical fruit notes along with a lemony and orange citrus with some pepper and coriander. I was expecting more funk, but it’s very minimal. T: The flavors are very similar to the nose. The fruit is a bit more pronounced and provides a nice sweetness which is a counterbalance to the pepper and bitterness. The finish is dry and there’s some notes of Brett, but again, not overly pronounced. M: The carbonation is low, but to be expected from the cask. The body is medium. D: A little bit more enjoyable than the regular Saison de Lente, but fairly similar. I was hoping for a bit more funk, but this was still a nice beer.

antioch (6) - Riverside, California, USA - MAR 8, 2010 does not count
On cask at the tasting room. 100% Brett doesn’t change the brew all that much. Pours cloudy golden. Not much funk comes through here, mostly hops. Tastes of hops as well, just as the normal Saison de Lente does. Good beer, just not much different than the original.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Last of the cask thanks to Bryan at the Bruery. Pours with a large white head over a murky golden body. Aroma is funky and very spicy with notes of dryness and horse. Taste is dry, husky, spicy and lightly phenolic. Couldn’t really tell too much of a difference between this and a cask of regular de Lente (as that is also fermented with brett). Cask mouthfeel with light bubbles.
