(Bottle) Cloudy orange body with a large, dissipating eggshell head. Wonderful aroma of wheat, red wine, fruit, yeast, spice, some wood, and a hint of brett sourness. Medium body, full carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Flavor of red wine, brettanomyces, grapes, rose, pepper, medium hops. The combination of elements combine surprisingly well in the aroma but not as successfully in the flavor. jehoesefat (366) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Funky oaky aroma. Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Nice flavor with a sour finish. BrewMstr (194) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Cellar aged bomber. Very nice funk and saison balance with a slightly sour finish and very smooth! VinegarStroke (424) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 17, 2016
UPDATED: APR 9, 2017 Bottle: Cloudy orange with a small head and no lace. Very funky aroma and palate. Sour for a saison, more of a lactic than brett profile.
Over ripe orange or mandarine rind with spice. Good length and mouthfeel.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; Batch #4, bottled in 12/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus rind, peppercorn, apricot, pineapple, melon, red wine, hay, straw, leather, musty funk, herbal, floral, toasted oak, bread, light caramel/vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spices, wine barrel, and light-moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus rind, peppercorn, apricot, pineapple, melon, red wine, hay, straw, leather, musty funk, herbal, floral, toasted oak, bread, light caramel/vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Large amount of peppery yeast/tannic oak spiciness and moderate tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus rind, peppercorn, apricot, pineapple, melon, red wine, hay, straw, leather, musty funk, herbal, floral, toasted oak, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spices, wine barrel, and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/spiciness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Good dryness from tart/spiciness as well. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, acidic/tannic/sticky, and lightly creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Brett saison. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spices, wine barrel, and light-moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Une saison à 8%? Why not, essayons ça! C’est vraiment très parfumé au nez, c’est assez hallucinant! Une mélange de fleurs, de vin rouge, d’agrûmes et de bretts à caractère fruité. Le tout bien concentré! Très particulier et très intéressant. En bouche, c’est très rond mais en même temps bien vivant. Les saveurs réflètent les odeurs mais sont ici prèsque trop intenses. Ce sont des notes florales que je n’ai jamais expérimentées, que j’aime bien, mais qui sont présentées tel un coup de poing sur la gueule.... J’aurais préféré une simple claque je pense! N’empêche, c’est une fantastique bière de dégustation, très complexe et très parfûmée. robinvboyer (4651) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
750ml corked and caged bottle. Hazy, Cloudy yellow pour, with a big white head. Aroma is is spicy, herbal, light rose water, some malted wheat, light funk, light tropical fruit and some fresh cut grass. Nice mouth feel, normal carb. Finish is woody, light vinous notes, earthy and slightly funky. Some light lactic funk, soft oak, and more light fruit and tartness with some good herbal, hoppy, slightly peppery end.

Sample at the "Post Beer Week Bottle Share" on 06/06/16. The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium white head that burns away steadily to a film. Stringy lacing. Aroma of funky yeast, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of vinous oak, brett yeast, citrus and malt. The finish is funky and fruity with a bretty aftertaste. Good beer all around. dfearnley (2134) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle to tulip
Consummation: Brettafuckingbrett, grapes, C-Hops, pepper and citrus. Unique...at least for me and my measly 1500 ratings.
Adjunct: Aroma of flowers, mandarin, grapefruit, and grapes; cloudy reddish amber with a thin ringed creamy and bright white head
Nice one. drpimento (3627) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2016
This is a traditional saison that’s been modified thru use of casting the brew in wine storage. it’sok, but I like Firestone Walke’so version w/ hops better
