COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love nothing better than Belgian-style saison but with this blissful version we’ve added our own Wild interpretation of the style by adding a dash of funky Brettanomyces yeast plus roasted apricots and a hush-hush blend of spices. All of this makes for an extraordinary beer with an array of aromas that leap out of the glass followed by a spicy, fruity, tart and peppery palate and a long lingering finish.

The ordeal of drinking this atrocity I can only liken to giving birth to a flaming turd through my japs eye. A real pain. Spolit my day no end. Avoid like the plague. If I could liken this beer to a celebrity paedophile, it would most certainly be Ian Watkins from Lostprophets.

AshtonMcCobb (2675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2014
33cl bottle. Appearance - dark amber with a nice generous head. Nose - dominated by the Brett but with just a hint of the apricots, you have to look for it, mind. Taste - more dominance from the Brett, with a mouthfeel that also suggests there’s a saison in there particularly. Palate - a light to medium bodied beer that has a creamy texture and the finish is dry and slightly sour and very long. Overall - tasty and enjoyable but the Brett took over almost completely so it really didn’t matter that there were apricots and spices in there.

Bottle from Final Gravity in Roseville, CA. Pours translucent copper with a slight beige head. Aroma seems to be mainly a herb. Had it, can’t come up with the name. The roasted apricots lurk beneath. Med minus body. Flavor is a twiggy/herb thing with the roasted apricots (try cooked) and some earth. If this is brettish, it’s mildly so. The twig/herb aspect isn’t all that attractive. Glad to have tried it, but not one of the brewery’s more interesting ales. Finishes pretty dry with a mix of strange things.

Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with tall frothy head. Lots of spice here...autumnal, pumpkin pie-ish spices. Clove, nutmeg, etc. Slightly fruity though I couldn’t distintcy make out apricot. Tart and very dry with light body. The spice hits in the front and the acidity and apricot notes hit in the back. Pretty good.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2014
From tap at cask London. Pours hazy orange brown with large off white head. Aroma sour, funky, fruity, spicy, sharp. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, medium sour, fruity, rather dry. Aftertaste is slightly sour, bit sharp. Not my beer.

Marheb (2136) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
C’est probablement la dernière fois que j’achète leurs bouteilles thoriquement excitante mais pratiquement ennuyante. Des carcasses d’épices émanent d’un liquide très minéral aux accents de carton. Aucune trace de sauvagerie, que du générique belge attristant.

KyotoLefty (6565) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2014
Tap at Spuyten. Medium brown-red with lace. Funky nose, chocolate, caramel, apricot, grass, ginger. Fruity, funky flavor, big malt, chocolate. Too malty, and not enough apricot or brett comes through. Ok though.

harrisoni (13848) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from BottleDog London and drunk at home. Hazy russet brown colouor with a thin beige head. Spicy aroma. which isn’t attractive to me. Better in mouth. Spices throughout. A little nutty in the mouth. It’s not really my thing as spices aren’t my favourite ingredient in a beer. Apricot? Well a little fruit maybe. OK, but I’m not keen on it.

TXBadger (1421) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Pours a hazy light brown color with off-white head. Apricot, yeast, funk, and some bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with yeast and fruit.

Pours hazy copper with a fluffy tan head. Fruit, yeast and spice but in a unique combination. Certainly interesting.
