draft at local option chicago. Pours deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is very tea and spice forward, herbal and fruity with some citric zest and pepper. Flavor has much the same, lots of cooking spice, and herbal again, pepper with a brett finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.
Bottle. Pour is hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor of earth, spice, herbs, floral hops, straw, lime zest, and sour funk. Finish is sour, spicy, and earthy. Strange. kayres (888) - , Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2017

And so it came to pass that six like minded people met on the 20th day of November in the year of 2016: those six people shared twenty five fine beers. This however was only split five ways: 75cl bottle. Dirty golden pour, weak white head. The nose had a honey lead, some mixed herbs and spices also. The taste was similar yet semi-sour even with that honey like base we all found in our bottle. Strange and interesting. minutemat (5478) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016

Poured into a snifter.
3.25 A: Murky bright straw yellow color. One finger of short lived white head that leaves about half of itself behind as irregular lacing.
1.25 S: When the cap came off, the worry began. My first though was: acetone. The taste nearly confirms my suspicions, but I’m still not fully sure. It could just be the bay leaves meshing poorly with the brett and saison funkiness. In any case, it smells terrible. Acetone astringency blocks out any attempt to find something better underneath, but I’ll contradict myself and say I can pick up some lemon and brett funkiness.
1.25 T: I gave the nose a 1.25 so I could have some wiggle room to give a worse score for the taste, but alas, it is just as bad as the nose - no better and no worse. Again I’m getting acetone as the main flavor. Brett funk, lemon, and pepper follow but as above, it’s difficult to want to get past the bad to see what’s underneath.
3.5 M: The mouthfeel is actually pretty good though. Light and spritzy and dances on the tongue.
1.5 D: I really hope I’m right and this is the beginnings of an infection. If it isn’t, then the brewer consciously released one of the worst beers ever made. Based on the other reviews here and on RB, I’d say it’s the former. In any case, I tried to contact the brewer, but instead of being a normal company and putting an contact email on their website, all they offer is a hundred ways to use social media to follow their antics. If I was 10 years younger and much stupider I’d have a twitter account, but I don’t today.
BEWARE! It sucks wasting $12 on a single bottle.

Bottle. Pours clean yellow with a small head. Peppery, spicy aroma with bay leaves hint and citrus in finish. Spicy and peppery in taste, also citric. Dry, light bodied with low bitter finish. Very pleasant, crisp, rich saison. mateuszk (2670) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours clean yellow, small head. Aroma is peppery, spicy with bay leaves hint and citrus in finish. In taste more pepper, but it is not overpowering the rest - citrus and other spices. Light bodied, dry and light bitter finish. Crisp and flavourfull saison.
