Bought two of these (1 for aging). I'll age the 2nd one for about a year and see how it changes.

honey color large uneven head. mild yeast some spice, watery, whatever rye they used was a waste as any of its spiciness is lost in blandness. there is sweetness but no sourness, so again whatever brett they used is lost. the label is disturbing as the only truth on it is the brewery and california, any else on it has to be questioned.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with disparaging head. Nose is sour dark fruit, cherries, plums, cloves. Taste is more like a barley wine. Chocolate, and spicy malt followed by some heat. The Brett showed through on the finish along with some funky spices. Black pepper aftertaste.

Smells sour, doesn't taste sour. Rich and complex, with a hint of spice from the malt.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Amber in color with a decent sized white head. Aroma is of citrus, grain, heavy yeast and alcohol. Taste is of yeast, citrus, pepper and bread.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a strong brett and fruit. Medium mouth with strong brett flavor and spice with nice dry finish. Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very interesting. Very strong aroma of sour, fruit, yeast. It smells like a wild ale. Strong golden color that remained quite clear with a very foamy white head. The palate was heavy and creamy, quite smooth. Carbonation was average, as anything more would have been too much. This was balanced and complex. It was Belgian and slightly tart like a farmhouse ale with spices. Maybe a little pepper with the slight funk of Brett. This was used sparingly, which I appreciate. Definitely worth a try.

Great Saison. Nice funky nose. Fruity and spicy with a nice sour finish. Does have some alcohol burn towards the end.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer just hit all the right notes with me during it’s consumption. Big spicy floral aroma, with a lovely soft creamy head. A nice amber hue, with a good medium mouth feel. A sweet to dry finish, the brett really shines as it warms up.
