Bottle while waiting for Blåbær. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Barn, light apricots, brett. Idiosynkrasie (7858) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2017
750ml bottle. Milky, orangey, pale golden colour with huge, fluffy, collapsing, white head. Sweet-ish, funky, bretty aroma, disguised hints of apricot, a touch of brine, some white pepper, hints of grapes. Taste is dry, funky, bretty, slightly fruity, hints of apricot, grapes; lively to fizzy carbonation. Slightly overcarbonated, brett-dominated, restricted complexity. No improvement compared to the original ’Classic Saison’. gyllenbock (9712) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2017

@ Basunen 17-1-14: ganska jästig med en liten ton av aprikos. Mycket bubblor helt ok utan att sticka ut. rosenbergh (11759) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2017

Hazy golden color with a big foamy white head.
Fruity hops, dryish malt and yeast in the aroma.
The flavor is fruitiness, malt and yeast. A bit too fizzy.
75 cl bottle @ Timo A.3fourths (9356) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2016
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma has apricot, yeast, some bretta notes, citrus. Flavor is citric, sweet apricot, yeast spicyness. Good but a bit too fizzy.
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2016 Batch 2 750ml pours into the glass 90% foam with a rapidly sparkling golden base underneath. First impression in the nose is strong phenolics coming across as dill pickle and catsup, with a worrying note of fried breading / grease. After some time these odors subside but never seem to be completely gone. There’s more esters and malt to sense after a good 10 minutes left in the glass to breathe, coming across a starchy hay and herbs. What I assume is the apricot emerges as an OJ and catsup / Pruno note, mealy / rotting, vegetal and unpleasant. Seemingly light-bodied with either too much carbonation (if drank immediately in the glass) or too little (if left to settle / breathe). By the fourth pour with a little more yeast in the mix, the unpleasant qualities are muted but still dominant, and the effervescence seems to even out to show the beer how it’s supposed to be: fluffy and buoyant, sweet and savory with an invigorating oily finish. I had a strange experience with the Cellar Reserve Brettanomyces Saison at about this age, that’s two aged brett beers from BFB that smell WAY off.

Bottle. Gusher. Cloudy golden color, massive white head. Aroma of black pepper, cobwebs, dust, attic corners, distant fruit. Taste has funk, dust, soft overripe fruit. Brett conquers all. chrisv10 (18240) - DENMARK - DEC 3, 2016

Bottle. Hazy yellow with a large frothy white head with good retention and lace. Juicy fruits in the nose: Apricot, peach, barnyard and minerals. The flavour has barnyard, dust ,overripe apples and minerals. Medium body, lively carbonation low sweetness, medium bitter. Dry bretty finish. Mild alcohol in the finish. Pleasant, and close to the hibiscus saison.
