CaptainCougar supplied 750ml bottle, thanks! Thick brown-orange color. Lacy head. Thick yeasty flavor. Quite a nice beer with lots of subtle Belgian-style nuances. Sweet but balanced by the Brett, which works itself into the equation superbly, not standing out and dominating like it can. Not unlike a hoppy Belgian Christmas Ale. Great beer. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 750mL Bottle. Soft caramel, minerals, and light yeast aroma. A bit of pale stonefruit. Pours a caramel-tinted amber-brown, with a strong yellowish head. Flavor is delicate. A juicy Saison yeast throws some minerals and a bit of almond. Light toasty caramels. Decent. There’s a nice dry juicy fruit character on this. I wish I had another bottle to age for some of the Brett character, because it’s really not here. Cotton candy dryness finishes. There’s some in the nose and some cotton in the finish, but otherwise it’s minimal. Regardless, this is a solid darker Saison. wetherel (1883) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAR 18, 2010

11/11/11. 750mL bottle courtesy ericandersnavy! Hazy brown pour with a frothy khaki head that fades but laces plenty. Huge yeast aroma with dark fruits, toast, caramel, and definite brett. Very slightly tart flavor with brett, a touch of roast, dark fruits, and lingering maltiness. Nice! CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2009
750ml bottle: Pours a transparent dark amber with a clingy-lacing spotty off-white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity caramel malt with a touch of cinnamon and clove. Starts with good fullness and lightly sweet caramel maltiness with toasty character and a light spice balance. Finishes nice and dry with some doughy yeasty notes. Has a little grassy character and some hay, but not much brett funk yet.

Bottle from Kramer, 8/08. Perfect pour, dark murky brown with a incredibly dense head, absolutely gorgeous. Unprocessed cocoa, minerally, wheat and fruit aroma, estery and very complex. All sorts of spices and tropical fruits. Flavor is a mildly acidic, dry farmhouse kind of estery, very fantome like. Perfume and grass notes. Quite enjoyable, very underrated.

Clear brown, nice spongy head. Smells nice and picy up front, some rye, some sweet notes in the background. Odd but enjoyable mix of flavors - cherry, rye, some oakl, some smoke, too. Very enjoyable. adrian910ss (2575) - Doylestown, PA, USA - JUN 13, 2009
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark caramel rusty orange with a thick and creamy beige head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, light caramel, toffee and sour fruity candy. Taste of dough bread, light tangy citrus, caramel, toffee, light pepper, sour fruit and yeast. Lot going on here. larryLSB (533) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Poured from 750ml, thanks to Captain Cougar. Nice lacy tan head over golden brown. Subtle aroma with hints of fruit. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2009
750ml Bottle: Aroma of Brett, dust, slight pollen, yeast, light malts, light fruit, slight wood, and slight white pepper. Poured brown/deep amber in color with a large, foamy, pillowy, rocky, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Very good to excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of yeast, Brett, malts, slight cocoa, light fruit, spices, pepper, light pollen, slight caramel, a hint of brown sugar, and a smidgen of wood. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Lightly sweet, yeasty, lightly fruit, dry finish.
