Well, this one got away from me, quite literally, as the beer erupted all over the place. We lost about a third of the bottle. The color is a blonde-golden with a huge white head showing strong retention.
Lots of oak, hay, grass and easygoing brett in the nose are all quite enjoyable. There’s, perhaps, a bit more oak than I’d prefer with some strong honey and dough, but it’s definitely identifiably Belgian.
Carbonation is very strong, though not overly tight, in the mouth, while hay, dough and floral brett notes develop. Some sweetness remains on the finish, perhaps a bit too much so, with light alcohol/glue and a healthy dose of old band-aid. Dry nectarine and apricot esters are the highlight of the beer, which isn’t a peach-banana bomb, as expected. Soft enough texture, from all the sugars still here, no doubt. Eh. It’s certainly passable, which is more than most Bruery beers are, but quite forgettable and a bit messy.
A nice blend of nectarine, candy sugar and sourness, showing some light funk, rye and spice notes. Medium length. AirForceHops (7689) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle thanks to AdamChan. Fantastic white head with good retention. Nose is grainy with light yeast and mild apricot, traces of malts. Chalumeaux (1656) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Flavor shows very classic mix between yeast esters and bits of rye throughout.. decent balance... fairly dry texture with a grainy rye spiciness. Good carbonation and body seem spot-on. Very drinkable, Probably my favorite (non -imperial stout/ Porter ) from this brewer in a VERY long time. The booze is slightly noticeable but doesn’t kill the flavor for me.
Poured from bottle thanks AdamChandler hazy orange color with a nice effervescent white head. Aromas of saison yeast bread and lemon. Taste is crisp nice wheat spices. AdamChandler (5150) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 26, 2016
75CL...this thing exploded. ridiculous. A murky orange yogurt mess despite being stored upright for a long time. so now it’s cloudy, it’s orange, a creamy looking head. Aroma is great. spicy, a lot of brett, tropical as well. it smells really good. It has a little bit of ethanol, alcohol, booze taste to it. the spice is here, the tropical hop profile is nice and there’s a good wheat body, the lingering finish. I juts don’t like the booziness of the finish.

Bottle at the Sovereign. Massive gusher, lost 3/4 of the bottle. Cloudy orange yellow color, white head. Aroma of white pepper, raw bread dough, lemon. Taste is bretty, dusty, peppery citrus. Nice stuff, but be very careful. Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2016
This beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, oak, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of oak, floral yeast, fruit and mildly spicy rye malt. The finish is tart with an oaky and fruity aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2016 Bottle sample at Chmielarnia. Aroma of funk, fruit esters, some woody note. Flavor of fruits, leather, hay. bhensonb (15617) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Capped 750 from ? Pours a monstrous gusher that emptied 1/3 of the bottle. It pours very hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is rye/citrus/earth and something "wild". Med body or better. Flavor is woody, rye, earth, citrus and something wild, tho it’s not extreme. This must be a "unique" ale. AgentAle (1807) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
Aroma is clove, straw, lemongrass, citrus and sweet light grains. Taste is tart, clove, straw and yeast and honey. Finishes with tart and slight funkiness. Appearance is a hazy gold with a medium pearl head that retains very well.
