3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy golden with medium to fine head. Lacing is okay but nothing heavy. Some clove and aged cheese aromas. Slight cider aroma and about the same in the dryness. The rye adds a slight peppery (?) bitterness. Could almost sense some citrus, maybe in the hops? Like it for my first beer of 2015.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy amber with thick fluffy white head. Aroma is vinous, chardonnay, with a slight grassy note and dark sugar.
Mouthfeel is really smooth, lovely carbonation, really pleasant. Flavors aren’t what I was expecting, dark dried fruits with lighter grape notes, changing into a rather dry finish that’s slightly bready.
Quite an interesting brew and I’m looking forward to tasting more Bruery bottles.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy light brown with a medium sized white head. Too much clover, man. Perfumy, white pepper, grain, rye, warming alcohol, juniper, forest. The brett is downtoned, some very light barnyard. Medium body, medium sweet and light/medium bitter. Dry and spicy finish. Ok, but that clover is just too much.

I was expecting a little more. There was nothing super interesting about it. But it is definitely a well balanced saison.
