Cloudy pale yellow pour with a white head. Really nice lemon aroma. Quite tart with some pepper spiciness, nice floral qualities, grass, and some sweet bread. Nice funky flavor to this. The lavender is pretty well pronounced, lots of tart lemon, mild malt flavor, and some grass. Good peppery spice, some orange peel, and a dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
