Belgian pale & pilsner malts w/ Styrian Golding for bittering and Saaz for aroma. Ginger predominates the spicing. Fermented in primary with Ommegang’s house yeast, followed by secondary with Brettanomyces bruxellensis. Dry-hopped in secondary w/ a blend of hops; Tettnang being the stand-out. The flavor profile is very herbal with an earthy undertone (very fitting for a Belgian-style farmhouse ale). The dry finish and pronounced hop aromas hide the 8% abv very well. Dangerously drinkable for its strength and character.

Pours with a big white foam atop a clear straw colored beer. The aroma is getting there. Huge barnyard, some chardonay character and a good smack of spicy grassy noble hops. The body is thin but not watery, rather luscious and satisfying. The flavors are WOW hoppy for a beer that has already been aged for this amount of time. The grassiness is backed by the vinous, funk of the brett. No sourness, just funk and I like it. Not quite as good as Orval, but they tried and good for them for doing it.

Aroma - sweet malt, caramel, barnyard yeast, alcohol. Appearance - body is hazy orange body, with full white head. Good lacing is present. Taste - sweet malts, spice, Brett. yeast, fruit, and booze. Palate - medium body, high carbonation, and boozed finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy orange hue with creamy white head. Aroma is straw, honey, peppercorn, earthy, slight funk. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy funky finish. Overall this beer was decent.

Bottle shared by mcbackus. Nose is slightly mail polish with some oxidation. Taste is a flat watery mess. Ugh. Just not good. No saison character left, no Brett character. All mess.

The body is cloudy with a pale yellow orange color and it has some active carbonation that rushes up to the head. Its head is white, fluffy and builds up thick and tall. It has excellent retention and coats the whole inside of the glass with lace. The aroma is lovely combination of fruity and funky yeast with notes of pear and dried apricot, mellow floral hops, light wheat and doughy malt. The flavor hits the tongue with tart funky yeast, sour grain and wheat. Hops come in and add an almost minty herbal flavor and mild bitterness. The finish is dry and the yeast flavor lingers, begging me to sip again. On the palate it has a light to medium body and a smooth texture with active yet smooth carbonation. Its palate makes it easy to sip and its complex aroma and interesting flavor enticed me to drink on. Very well done!

3/4 head, 1/4 liquor. Recedes in a rocky fashion. Leaves large bubbled lace. The color is straw with a very light haze. Yeasty and mildly hoppy. Strong farmhouse aromas. Fresh and citrusy. Peppery with strong lemon zest flavor. Lots of yeast bite to the drink, which lasts through the swallow and aftertaste. Not much hop; this is mostly dry malt. Thin body and highly carbonated.

Brett-tastic. Dry, peppery, golden, and crisp. Tried this courtesy of Jay after a year aging.

CarloOG (57) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Batch 1-poured hazy orange (cant see through it) with a thin white head that settled to a thin layer. Had a few yeast chunks in it. Aroma of yeast, funk, basement. Sweet flavor up front that finishes a pink peppercorn finsih. Slight bitterness really evens it out.

2007 Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange yellow with medium frothy white head. Aroma is funk, yeast, and ginger. Thin mouthfeel with strong ginger flavor and light spice. Decent.
