4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2010 bottle @ Arminís post-Scottís Summer Saison tasting. Gusher but it didnít appear so at first. Cloudy, yellowish orange appearance with a white head. Fairly spicy, nicely floral, tangy bretty, spicy pineapple/lemon, lightly earthy aroma. One of the best aromas of an incredible saison tasting night. Cinnamon spicy, fairly spicy, refreshing lemon spritzy, somewhat tangy/lightly sour, nutmeg spicy, a touch woody flavor. Bravo. Bravo. Bravo. One of the best Saisons Iíve ever had. Should have shared this with Scott and co. Funky, spicy, fruity, refreshing. Fuck yeah. I guess Iím rating way higher than anyone else, but sweet jesus, this is just about perfect right now.

Bottle at a tasting at Jamesí place. Pours a very hazy gold with a medium sized white head. Minty, eucalyptus, medicinal, but still rather nice, very herbal and bright musky yeast. Medium bodied, spicy and still a touch herbal, but not in a bad way. Minty, herbal, spicy with a touch of juniper. Long herbal touches, spicy yeast. Nice and quite different.

750 mL 2010 bottle, thanks Aaron! Gusher bottle, but nice hazy yellowish pour with fluffy white head, aroma has notes of nice lemon, brett, nice funk and some nice floral, spice notes, touch of vanilla, milky notes but nice with yeast. Taste is lemon, nice vanilla, biscuit, floral, tropical fruits, hint of pine and slight lactic acid but very small, finishing nice and fruity and tart. Balanced, tasty, delicious.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from bottle shared by Brad @ Jackie Oís. Pours a cloudy yellow gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was horseblanket, funky, peppery, herbal (lavender?) with hints of the brett. The flavor has a nice funk to it with floral, herbal and spicy (white pepper) components. This was complex and intense; I liked it but was happy with a sample instead of a full glass.
