3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
October 2012 dated bottle. lightly hazed golden wheat body with a medium sized white head. pilsner malt aroma with some minor banana esters and some pizza crust sourdough strangeness; little to no brett character evident other than some minor citrus notes that could well be from the sacc strain used. lemon oil, vegetables, malt liquor-esque corn ethanol, bananas and plantains and oregano and pizza crust and tomato paste (I know...)... so there’s some problems with the nose, but underneath the malt has nice expression, and I like the black pepper and the mild tropical fruit esters, but something is off and seems out of place. thankfully it tastes mostly clean. it’s lightly sweet with a lingering lemon oiliness and has a enjoyable lightness with soft carbonation, I really dig the mineral quality and some of the esters. if only the malt could be smoothed out a bit, it’s a bit too crunchy and grainy for me.

Odeur de saison (levure). Mousse épaisse qui dure avec une bonne persistance. Goût léger d’alcool et de brett léger. Certaine lourdeur au niveau du corps.

Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14
The yeast and spice flavor work nicely here. It is a little sweeter than average in this style. This is a tasty, well-made Saision.

"more straight forward than what i;ve come to expect from the Bruery. All in all it was a nice hot weather brew. light, earthy, with some brett making it just a little on the dry funky side. "

Another near perfect brew from this place. I love saisons, this one no exception, great grain blonde and additional sourness and barnyard hay, but very slight. Such a good sparkling brew. Perfect on a hot humid summer day!!!

Keg- very mild to almost non-existent Brett characteristics. Nice rustic, slightly rough around the edges flavor profile. Probably true to traditional/historical saisons. Hop levels are perfect for the style, very present, but don't overwhelm the flavor if the beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sugaya. Lemony, grapefruit nose, nice bretty funk is restrained, some yogurt there too. Bright gold, almost pastel, cloudy, with a fine head. More brett in the flavor, a bit earthy, grassy, leather and dust, and more lactic notes. Grapefruit zest still going. Crisp, high carbonation, somewhat bitter finish. Nice stuff. A but dirtier flavor than I hoped after the nose, but still good.
