Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a massive three finger frothy, pillowy white head. Very good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap that coats the glass with chunks of soapy lacing.
Funky, earthy aroma with a prominent brett character that compliments the earthy saison yeast very nicely. Hints of grass, straw and hay along with some zesty, peppery spice and crisp, light fruit, especially apple and pear.
Medium bodied and heavily carbonated at first with a funky, earthy brett flavor that adds dryness, complimenting the saison yeast characteristics. Nice bready yeast presence with hints of coriander and pepper along with some apple and pear. A nice amount of sweetness to counter the dry brett and grassy notes. Crisp, refreshing and very easy to drink. Very good. mbpufall (83) - Andover, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pours light, bright straw color with a big pillowy head. Steady carbonation; slight lacing throughout. Aroma is spicy, yeasty, bready, citrus - reminds me a bit of a lemon poppyseed muffin - still a hint of funk, earth, grass. Taste is peppered, grassy, floral hops with a slight brett tartneess on the finish. Relatively light on the palate with nice carbonation and lingering finish.

Bottle, I finally get to try this. Semi cloudy straw yellow pour, with rocky white head. Grainy bread, citrus, herbal hops, lemon, floral sweetness, and a little tartness. A really nice American made saison. fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 A hazy pale golden color with a huge foamy white head. The aroma is wheat, citrus, pineapple, and bubblegum. The flavor is lemon and wheat upfront, with more floral, grapefruit, and pepper toward the finish. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 15, 2011
shared at bas release. Best nose. Sharp and wild with mid tartness. Lots of pepper. Taste high lemony yeast and tart flat smack. Bitter back. Nice.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow straw color with a big fluffy white head. Lots of fruit int he nose; green apple, pear, apricot, and then florals and slight medicinal. Sweet fruit notes that then turn into the bretty floral flavors with some mild tartness. Light mouthfeel. Lots of carbonation. Overall rather refreshing. The brett is there but doesn’t totally dominate the flavor and nose. drinkrealbeer (47) - Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2011
750 mL bottle into a tulip glass
Appearance: Nice and bright golden yellow with a huge fluffy head. I cant recall seeing a head as thick as this one. Just awesome.
Smell: A faint hint of funk on top of a typical Belgian nose. Not picking up a whole lot of spice
Taste: A bit sweeter than typical for this style with only a slight bit o sourness. The sour level is absolutely perfect. Maybe some green apple and white grape notes on the finish but not to dry at all.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, nice and crisp.
Drinkability: Prefect, The mouth fell and subtle sour notes make this one a joy t drink
Overall I love the complexity of this beer. Its just a delicate style and to get just right is amazing. Need More !

Poured about an inch of clear gold liquid underneath about 6 inches of pillowy bright white head. Aroma is all Brett and citrus. Medium bodied with average to stronger carbonation. Flavor much like the aroma is dominated by Brett, citrus and earth round out this one. Solid. barncatmatt (2287) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2011

This is such a great brew. Not much I don’t like about it. I love that it’s dry hopped. It finishes dry and awesome. It’s amazing.
