Dr_Fellini (828) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Draft at the bruery. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a fizzy off white head. Aroma is spicy, Belgian yeast, slight funk. Flavor has much of the same with a touch of saison zest. Overall a decent and drinkable beer.

murphious2000 (25) - - JAN 1, 2015
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.

jdjuice (450) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2014
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 arenít what I was expecting, dark dried fruits with lighter grape notes, changing into a rather dry finish thatís slightly bready. Quite an interesting brew and Iím looking forward to tasting more Bruery bottles.

SlackerMads (2091) - DENMARK - DEC 25, 2014
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.

Bottle poured into two tulip glasses I was expecting a little more. There was nothing super interesting about it. But it is definitely a well balanced saison.
