Poured a hazy orange color with a foamy white that was a tad out of control. The aroma was very nice with light citrus, sugar cookie and a touch of funk. The flavor was a well balanced of citrus, spice, bready malts, sweetness and funk. Medium bodied and at times a touch oily. Really tasty. One of my favorites from these guys.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a robust, pinot noir / barrel - like note with supporting characters of citrus, rye bread, and an emerging banana and cream that comes out with some warmth, and a subtle floral hint. The beer pours mildly hazy with a bronze hue and a dense, white foam head that has moderate light retention and a mild lace. The taste is a medium bittersweet that’s nicely balanced, and a curious, light / medium light sour note. The syrupy texture is cut by a fizzy carbonation. The medium medium body is mostly bitter citrus / grapefruit with a toffee malt backbone. Notes of banana bread and a slight funk come through late. It finishes crisp with woody spice, banana, citrus peel, a dry resin, and some caramel. The aftertaste is dry and clean with rye bread qualities.

Pours an orange yellow haze with a thick foam head. Has an aroma of farmhouse funk. Tastes of a sweet saison with malts and hops balance of a belgian strong ale. This is clearly a balance between a light sweet saison and a matly belgian strong. Very good brew.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy yellow. Funky light citrus, straw, and light malt aroma. I thought this stuff rocked...great big flavor, totally tasty but hard to pinpoint...citrus, full bodied, not too malty or hoppy or spicy; dry and funky light saison brett stuff and really great flavors overall. I liked this more than the White or Black Orchid (both of which were very good).

Funky pear aroma, as noted in an eariler review. Flavor is sweet and full of apple, pear, white grape and chardonnay notes. Pours cloudy golden with white head that froths up at first. An excellent Bretty Saison!
