brokensail (12466) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
A: A hazy/cloudy reddish-orange color with a large white head. S: Spice, bread, and yeast are the main traits that I pick up. The complexities that I hoped for in this (especially the Brett) are not all that present. T: The taste is better than the nose. Still not quite as "funky" as I would have liked for a Saison, but better than I would have expected. Caramel, bread, slight taste of rye, some herbal character like a lot of their beers seem to have. M: Medium body, decent carbonation. D: A decent Saison, but not as good as I was hoping for.

Koelschtrinker (12132) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 5, 2011
Würziger, gelungen süß-hefiger Antrunk. Dabei steigt die Würzigkeit schnell an und stützt sich dabei auf die Süße, die Getreidigkeit integriert sich gut. Vollmundig, süffig, angenehme Malzigkeit. Dazu wenig bitter, eine gewisse Alkoholigkeit ist in positivem Maße vorhanden. Weiter stark hefig-würzig, nun brennt der Alkohol leicht in der Nase. Abgesehen davon ist das Bier perfekt abgestimmt und weich. Gefällt ohne Zweifel! 11/13/13/14/12/14

bhensonb (12128) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Bottle from South Bay Drug (though I have a spare from Bottle Barn). Orange gold color with a large whitish head. Aroma is spicey over fruit and light malt. Medium body with vigorous carbonation. The brett funk is up front. Next is like sucking peach pits. Lots of sharpish spice. Puckers my mouth - i.e. astringent. Finish is mildly sweet, fruity, funky. It’s the cleanest funk (?) I can recall. The rye finally comes center stage. It’s genuinely mouthsmacking. Perhaps the best Bruery I’ve had so far.

bu11zeye (12112) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2008
(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, clove, ginger, and pepper. Flavor of florals, pepper, coriander, and orange with a dry finish. The brett characteristics are not evident at this time.

argo0 (11955) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 14, 2009
750ml bottle. Murky apple cider body topped by large white head. Aroma is medium sweet, Brett/lemon, some pepper, ginger, wood. Taste is medium sweet, wood, lemon/cherry, light cream, spice/pepper. Effervescent medium body, light acidity, hides alcohol well.

Tmoney99 (11677) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle from Root Cellar. Poured a hazy yellow color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy, herbs, fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet & sour witty flavor with a medium to heavy spicy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. I would recommend this to a friend.
