COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison du Swamp invaded by Brettanomyces
Our coveted saison starts off with a traditional saison yeast, giving it aromas of pepper and white fruits and a lingering finish with a hint of floral hops. To weave some funk into this already tangled tapestry of flavors, we decided to iintroduce Brettanomyces Buxellensis. This wild yeast strain known as "Brett" has thrown in a pleasant earthy barnyard funk. You will also find a refreshingly dry finish with a soft residual sweetness left behind by the orange blossom honey in this funky and new version of an old Swamp Head classic.

5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Gainesville, Florida. Consumed on 2-23-18. Bright clear gold/bronze. Moderate amount of cream to beige head. Apple cider and apple juice scents. Brett evident in smell. Clove scent. Solid saison flavor. A little too cidery but a lot of spice: Clove, cumin, and black pepper. Medium to full body, full for the style and ABV. Frothy; too frothy in the palate. I'm mixed on it, but it’s a decent saison overall. If you had told me this was a graf, I'd have believed it. 7.4.7.3.13=>3.4

Tasted during RBWG15 Grand Tasting. 750ml. Really interesting bubblegummy aroma up front, mild spiciness, leon citrus, mild oak, belgian saison yeast. Hazy golden color. Thin white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light tart. Solid, interesting saison.

750, thanks Collin! This was a very fruity, moderately sweet saison. The brett did dry it out a little, I would wait just a bit more, lots of odd things going on but I liked it. Was very interesting.

bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy pale golden color with two fingers of tight white foam. Nose is nice blend of rustic grain, barnyard funk, old leather, earthy yeast, dusty grass and a touch of grapefruit. Palate follows with bright carbonation, nice floral herbal nuances that are well balanced with the funky barnyard, pineapple and peppered spice notes. Clean refreshing finish. Nice lighthanded brett saison !
