The color was cloudy and brassy with orange hues. The head was fizzy, frothy, and off-white. The aroma was pumpkin, spice, and an acidic tartness. The flavor was dry, pumpkin, spice, and waxy. The palate was well carbonated. The finish was warm and spicy.

Dark Cloudy golden pour. Full white head. Nose is sour brett and pit fruit. Toasty malts, bitter sweet fruits. Prominent rye pepperiness. Super dry finish. Very nice.

Hazy peach hued body has a small offwhite head that leaves some sheet lacing on the goblet. Aroma of herbal and floral hops, a hint of funk, spicy rye, amd vague fruit. Zippy carbonation enlivens the dry medium body. Taste is dominated by dry herbal and earthy hops. Crusty rye bread note is nice. Vague spices and a fruity note of ripe green apples join with white pepper to add a sublime complexity. Really well executed. Reminds me of some of the Fantomes.

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

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!

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Aroma is not overbearing, just a mild perhaps even sour tinged scent of saison. A cloudyish pour, decent carbonation. The first sip was lightly sour, and full. A bit of....maybe its lemongrass or something. This seems like it would go great with Thai food....hmm, good idea, might need to try that. Really lasting flavor and just another all around delicious offering from the Bruery!

Chuckaduck (653) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Pours an off-orange with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy, Belgian yeast, earthy, some funk, bitter orange. Taste is spicy, earthy, rye, Belgian yeast. Very carbonated. Overall, really nice as for a Belgian ale.

Bottle at The Bruery tasting at Beer & Beyond shop. Hazy rusty-red with a small head. Aroma and taste of sweet fruits, citrus, spices, sour vinous notes and yeast. Medium-bodied, slightly sticky texture.

750ml bottle, shared with the Tallahassee crew, I can smell the Brett right off the bat, rye, I’m not so hot on this, the rye overwhelms every other flavor, just way too much. Glad I only had a few sips.
