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.

Lukasmh (348) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours cloudy golden orange with very nice long lasting slight cream head. Aroma is first some yeast and rye spices. Then reveals complex fruitiness and funky brett. Some flowery notes and earthy hops. There is red apples and sweet ripe pears. Slight alcohol as i warms. Taste is quite complex! Sweet apples, tart green apples, sweet pear, brett notes, some yeast. Some spicy rye and smooth body. Exotic fruit bowl. Finish is super dry! Has relatively high carbonation. Really well incorporated alcohol, slight present at is warms. Almost dry oak in finish.

2014. Draft at the Bruery. Pours opaque orange amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like dry cracker malt, dry citrus, light herb, lemon, very light yeast. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells like dry cracker malt, light citrus,

Prickly sparkling wine appearance and aroma. Flavor of some oak funk and lemonade sourness.

Renobob (1097) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 15, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Nez pamplemousse, ananas. Palais puissant, alcool bien présent, assez complexe. Houblon discret mais intéressant. Ensemble plaisant mais un peu trop fort en alcool et trop acide.

deepeary (260) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
17 month old bottle. Pours a clear amber with off white head. Nose is mild, tart with some funk, white wine, cherry. Taste mild, sweet, caramel, rye, spice, honey grapes, dry finish. No booze detected. Flavour is complex but rather subdued. I was expecting more from this.

What on Earth happened here? Tastes like a great saison that has had artificial sweetener added. Perplexed by the high scores here.

maxwelldeux (4081) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy goldwn orange color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose has some nice floral and citrus notes on top of some funk. Taste is slightly sour with a great light floral flavor. Nice...

Holmen1 (3215) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2015
Fra flaske på M2 mars-15: gylden, med højt belgisk skum. Blomster, honning, mild og innsmigrende for sine (iflg RB) 8,5 - eller er det 9,5 som det står på etiketten? Uansett, en kompleks og god representant for saisonstilen. Lekkert balansert.

Holmen2 (1572) - NORWAY - MAR 23, 2015
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 23.03.15. A gusher. Clear golden. Foamy, dense and persistent off-white head and lacing. Quite refreshing aroma, with a hint of flowers, fresh pear and brett. Similarly fruity taste with more bitterness. Complex aftertaste. A bit fizzy.
