Strong lavender upfront in the nose. Brettanomyces tartness also comes through in the nose. Taste is very floral. Sweet taste from the pumpkin and a nice spice note to wrap in up. Tartness lingers in your mouth after you swallow.

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, I’m assuming from barrel treatment. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation and a long funky brett, bitter spice, and coconut barrel finish.

Bottle with a big thanks to adnielsen !! Pours a rich golden almost copper color with a thick tight foam. Aromas are big and complex... barnyard, rustic earth grain, citrus, lavender and some yeasty spice. The palate follows the nose but all the overwhelming aromas fall in line nicely with a layered yet balanced drinking experience. Nice grain bill holds up to all the accents and nuances caused by all the strange additions ! A pleasure to drink and a big thanks for sharing !

What is this crazy shit? A 4.5% saison with spelt and Brett and pumpkin and spice? Sounds like a disaster in the making. And yet... bright yellow pour with one finger of rocky white head. Nose shows lemongrass, a garden herb blend, lavender, and some lemony citrus. Taste adds a peppery element and a tartness. Dry and refreshing. Hell yeah. Thanks, Ethan.

Bright lemon rind pour with one finger of crackling white head. Herbal nose with notes of lavender and lemongrass and an ephemeral acidity. Spicy/peppery flavor with lavender and a musty herbal character. Tart and spicy on the finish. Light dry.
