I was expecting a darker pour with the rye malt but it pours a bright golden amber with a light fluffy white head. The nose is frutiy and funkalicious with big farmhouse notes, pepper and big bretty aromas. A bit reserved int he middle with lgiht toasted toffee and caramel bread notes and a hint of grassy hops works well with the light spices and the tons of farmy funk notes. didnt know this was so booozy until reveiwing it. They hid the 8.5 very well.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Yoav. Hazy dark yellow. Aroma of fruits, some bretty funk and citric and floral spiciness. Sweetish flavor with faint tartness, fruits, malt, rye spiciness, mild funk and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. A bit too heavy, but not bad.

Pours a burnt golden color with a white head. Brett, yeast, clove and fruit aroma. Tart, fruit, yeast, clove and grain flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Fruit and tart finish.

Poured at tasting. A hazy orange tinged amber. White head and lacing. Aroma is complex, hay, grass, lemon, grain. A little basement. The taste is bright and fresh. Malt, hay and grass. A small funk with the brettanomyces but not a heavy funk. It hit me more as tangy on the tounge in the finish. This will be great as the weather breaks, wonderfully refreshing.

hopwine (357) - Bend, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Light funk, moderate rye spice, way too much sweetness for the style. Mouthfeel is too hefty, and the rye spice seems out of place also. Hadn’t had this in years, and wouldn’t revisit again.

Caramel and mild funk smell. This is a great looking beer! Golden tangerine colored and translucent with tiny apple cider looking bubbles and thin lacing. Taste has some sharp initial funk on the tongue with a very mild and pleasant finish where the sweetness really shines through. Mild malt, I?m finding some sips finish sweet, and some with a tinge of crisp lemony bitterness, but leads me to think it?s well balanced. Also, my bottle says 9.5%alcohol.

Hazy orange tan in color... Aroma of light citrus, grains, spicy rye... Flavor is grainy, rye bread, caramel malts, spices and Brett funk on finish... Delicious

750ml brown bottle. Pours yellow, hazy. Fat white head, lots of lacing. Nose has grain, hay and a bit of funk. Taste has grains, hay, tangy lemon. Citrusy finish with brett. Overall a decent bright tasting saison with some brett touches.

Yellow golden pour, lots of white straw head overflowing my glass. Wonderful aroma of melons, lemon, slight sour, funk, and honey. Taste - sweet up front, honey, mid way the funk comes through, finishes semi bitter. A very refreshing saison with tons of flavour, love it!

750 ml bottle from the Argonaut shared. Lightly tart and refreshing saison with a nice aroma and a medium body. Not as bretty and tart as I was hoping for.
