3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Barrel #TBB1-613 Bottle #457
Tasted on 1/15/14 from a waxed and capped 750mL bottle purchased at Belmont Station. Pours very cloudy, bright orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to a thick collar of lace. The nose is funky dry brett with some brad malt, floral lavender, cardamom, and some more standard baking spices. The flavor is the same very dry brett funk, orange peel, the pumpkin comes through on the nose, the same baking spices from the nose, and an added vanilla and coconut note, Iím assuming from barrel treatment. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation and a long funky brett, bitter spice, and coconut barrel finish.

Pours a fizzy honey golden with no head. The musty barnyard aroma leaps out at you as soon as the bottle is open. Some sweet citrus, hay, and oak, too. Full bodied with a sharp but restrained carbonation level. Flavor has the musty barnyard notes followed by sweet citrus, lavender, proseco, and floral. Tart throughout. Ends rather dry. Definitely beat my expectations.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy bread and straw for the malt, moderate lemon and grass for the hops, heavy barnyard and faint basement for the yeast, with proseco, unripe peach, vinegar and wood in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with some slippery spots of lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, and finishes the same. Palate is light to medium, slick with a lively carbonation. Excellent Saison with a touch of sweet fruitiness to balance the tart wildness.

Bottle from Andersons in Dublin: hazy yellow, thin white. aroma of nice funk, floral, perfume. tastes are moderately tart - herbal, pepper spiced, woody, brett, lemon, floral and funky. moderate dry on the thin to medium palate. I know itís based on a saison, but just a sour in my book. good at that.

12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out vinous notes, lots of lavender, and brett. Flavour is complex and cohesive, with lots of lavender upfront, followed by big funky brett notes and white wine barrels. Very spicy, bretty, and complex. Could use a bit more carbonation. Very good stuff.
