4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
GABF 2012. Jesus Christ, I think I drank a full bottle over the first two nights of GABF. I believe that I had about twenty pours and to be perfectly honest, I was chugging this shit near closing both nights. Maybe it’s just me, but Trinity’s Saison Provisional and this are simply world-class.
Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Tons of funk, spices, light bretty pineapple, and a ton of lavender. The floral element is just beautiful in the flavor and the nose. Beyond the floral element which is pretty strong, is a soft bretty tartness, citrus, light rye, and moderate spiciness. Finishes a bit spicy, floral, and slightly tart. An absolute delight. Despite the high price, I fully intend on picking up a couple bottles for a special occasion. FUCK YEAH.
