3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
appearance: clear light yellow (hazier as the lees worked their way in with later pours), short, dense, creamy bright white head and minimal lacing. aroma: stone fruit and yeast, with green apples, almond skin, orange zest, and a slightly musty yet sharp funk with lots of peppery notes (peppercorn for sure). taste: slightly sour fruit up front (lemon, apricot, kiwi), with peppery, yeasty phenols, some brett bandaid sharpness, a bit of cracker and some peach pit. finish: slightly aspirin note in the finish, a little herbal and harp, with a tad of the brett funk underneath. notes: Not a bad saison. Surprised by the slight sourness, but the herbal and peppery notes were as expected. Palate was good. Maybe just a bit too much brett skunking. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.
