4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (2011 vintage). White head, clear (light) golden color. Very nice, soft and rounded aroma. Like Orval, but fruitier and with some (more) pine. Taste is fruity (ripe, yellow fruit), flowers and bret of course. A bit more body and this would be a + 4.5. As an Orval-fan, I say this is a great beer.
750ml corked and caged from the lcbo. Opaque orange pour, with a large white head. Loads of brett in the aroma. Very fruity, oranges and stone fruit, light yeast, soft herbs and some tropical notes. Good mouth feel, soft carb. Finish is medium bitter, subtly sweet, bretty finish, more stone fruit, soft spice and cereals. alteregoo (1445) - Kalisz, POLAND - JUL 14, 2017
Solidny wystrzał korka, aczkolwiek bez gushingu. Piana bardzo obfita, średnio oczkowa, całkiem trwała. Barwa słomkowa, lekko opalizująca. Aromat intensywny i przyjemny - są wyraźne nuty funky w typie siana, łąki, słomy, do tego białe owoce, nafta i zioła. W smaku podobnie, półwytrawne, lekko cierpkie, szorstkie, brettowe, chmielowe, ale z delikatnie waniliowo kwiatowym finiszem. Super. Goryczka średnia, przyprawowa, pikantna (skojarzenia z białym pieprzem). Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego, bardzo rześkie, lekkie, wręcz zwiewne, zero alkoholu.

Bardzo fajnie zagrały tu dzikie drożdże w połączeniu z chmieleniem na zimno. Świetny balans poszczególnych składowych, mega pijalność! Dodatkowo trudno uwierzyć, że to aż 8,5% ABV - pije się jak jakieś lekkie Farmhouse Ale.
Pours almost clear golden, big frothy white head. A somehow weird, mineral salty aroma, intense bretts and bitter herbs. Taste is bitter and herbal, but intense. Yeasty, earthy, spicy, crispy. Post taste is bitter and full of fresh hay. Great! mikkopen (1164) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2017
750 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour, thick white head. Dryish spicy aroma with distinct sourness from the Brett, some citrus and berry notes. The taste is sweetish fruity at first, with earthy and citrus notes, and a dryish, spicy finish with sour notes and a little alcohol warmth. Delicious. bubblehouse (1531) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 25, 2017
This is a really good beer. Great all the way around. Best beer I’ve had in some time.

Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mild rubber, earthy strawberries, moldy peaches, attic bones. Taste is crisp, fruity tang, spicy. Wet but dusty, fresh but funky, very stylized but super drinkable. Gets better and more interesting with each sip. gopherfan99 (1829) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Bottle (2012 #14458); pours cloudy yellow gold with a white head; aroma of yeast funk with lemon, wheat, and pepper; taste is lemony with yeast funk and some wheat notes; dry, peppery finish; really good saison thepatrickman (1347) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2017
2015 bottle (a couple of months past its best by date, but who cares with this style?). This tastes like drinking a bit of history. Brett saisons are delicious, and this is definitely one of the milestones of the style. It keeps a lot of the hallmarks of a saison (more than most chart-topping mixed fermentation saisons) -- its peppery, and very effervescent, and its got a clear yeast profile that reminded me a lot of Dupont. The Brett is present, but its integrated and not overpowering. This would be a great gateway beer for people that are just getting into Brett beers. balloonbuffoon (320) - - MAY 29, 2017
25.4floz (750ml) 2016 vintage bottle (BOD: 01.22.2016, BBD: 01.2018) - $13, stored in my basement (not-cellared) for about a year, poured into a tulip glass. A very voluminous head develops on the pour that settles down to a rocky formation. I recall there to b quite a bit of foam from prior experiences, but this was a lot atop a golden body. The nose consists of lively sour funk, straddling the line between wildflower and band-aid aromas. This comes on mildly palate that feels lighter than the ABV (although it is apparent) suggests. Finishes dry and see this as pairing well with Mediterranean fare especially well. As far as seasonality, spring seems like the best time to drink this wonderful saison.

Bottle, caged and corked. Golden, lightly hazed and confused (ha), fluffy white head. The aroma definitely screams "Brett!" Lightly fruity, sweet, funky, and deliciously yummy. Wild but tame, a great classic beer. (#6606, 5/15/2017)
