The origins of this Saison go back to the 1800s when saisons brewed in Wallonia were rugged, unrefined, and edgy. Going back to the original roots of Saison, we used a large amount of ancient spelt grain, vienna, and raw wheat. Another first for Colorado Springs, this beer was fermented in primary with wild Brettanomyces and lactobacillus, and a blend of two Saison yeasts to create a lightly sour, extremely aromatic, and spicy yeast profile. Being a Provisional, this beer was both dry hopped, aged, and naturally carbonated for authenticity.

GABF 2009. Pours clear light yellow with an average, frothy white head, mostly lasting with good lacing.

Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Long duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Brettanomyces character.

2010 bottle @ Armins post-Scotts Summer Saison tasting. Gusher but it didnt appear so at first. Cloudy, yellowish orange appearance with a white head. Fairly spicy, nicely floral, tangy bretty, spicy pineapple/lemon, lightly earthy aroma. One of the best aromas of an incredible saison tasting night. Cinnamon spicy, fairly spicy, refreshing lemon spritzy, somewhat tangy/lightly sour, nutmeg spicy, a touch woody flavor. Bravo. Bravo. Bravo. One of the best Saisons Ive ever had. Should have shared this with Scott and co. Funky, spicy, fruity, refreshing. Fuck yeah. I guess Im rating way higher than anyone else, but sweet jesus, this is just about perfect right now.

750mL at Campdown Brewdown. Pours a full haze murky white peach. Weak head. Nose is lavender soap, salt, lemongrass, and ginger. Sort of like a Grandmas house aroma. Taste is soapy and malty. Bitter chemical freshener. More like a witbier from the spices. Quite tart and salty/buoyant.

j12601 (9891) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle at a tasting at James place. Pours a very hazy gold with a medium sized white head. Minty, eucalyptus, medicinal, but still rather nice, very herbal and bright musky yeast. Medium bodied, spicy and still a touch herbal, but not in a bad way. Minty, herbal, spicy with a touch of juniper. Long herbal touches, spicy yeast. Nice and quite different.

Sample from bottle shared by Brad @ Jackie Os. Pours a cloudy yellow gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was horseblanket, funky, peppery, herbal (lavender?) with hints of the brett. The flavor has a nice funk to it with floral, herbal and spicy (white pepper) components. This was complex and intense; I liked it but was happy with a sample instead of a full glass.

750 mL 2010 bottle, thanks Aaron! Gusher bottle, but nice hazy yellowish pour with fluffy white head, aroma has notes of nice lemon, brett, nice funk and some nice floral, spice notes, touch of vanilla, milky notes but nice with yeast. Taste is lemon, nice vanilla, biscuit, floral, tropical fruits, hint of pine and slight lactic acid but very small, finishing nice and fruity and tart. Balanced, tasty, delicious.
