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.

hobsch (436) - 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.

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 (6339) - 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 (13627) - 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 (1354) - 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.

>> Pours hazy deep amber, thick off white foam. Nose is pumpkin pie. Taste is tangy, tea, amber malt, lemon, harsher. Detergent. Eh.

Bottle. Spicy ginger, fruity caramel, and yeasty aroma. Hazy amber with a large off-white head. Slightly tart fruity malt, light toast, and bitter spicy flavor. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Reminds me a bit of a pumpkin or winter spiced ale.

paologalloni (106) - ITALY - JUL 22, 2014
L aRoma ha dei limiti oggettivi alle note piacevoli di albicocche quasi affumicata sfociano affiancate anche note medicinali un po’ troppo dolce. Il color bronzo scuro il cappello di schiuma bianca permanente a grana fine è bello. In bocca si apprezza tutta la qualità del brett. L’entrata dolce delle albicocche e dei malti è accompagnata da note acido acetico è più che lattiche. Chiude secca

Bottle. That is a LOT of head. Vivid red-orange with a high, coarse-grained, pillowy peach-colored head. Lots of lace. Nose is funky like George Clinton; we got stone fruit, spice, cheese, barnyard, cava, caramel. There is a whole lot going on, and none of it bad. A little tart up front, a little astringent, and some phenols, then it goes tight and bitter -- then blossoms into more funk, stone fruit, and spice in an astonishing conjuring turn. I can’t recall too many beers that change that fast from bitter and tart into fruity and rustic. Neat trick. The finish combines the best of both sides. Pretty amazing.
