i like these funky small timey saisons, and this one is pretty darn bretty. i suspect my poor came from near the bottom of the keg, it almost looks milky, as pale yellow straw colored as beer can beer, frosty looking with just a ton of creamy brett in suspension. still somehow light and delicate though despite being as yeasty as it is. pale wheat malt base, tons of brett in the nose. its mild and real farmy, funked out, definitely made in belgium. creamy wheat flavor up front, brilliant grassy middle, maybe from hops, maybe some yeast i want to culture and use at home, but its really neat. that milky base feel would be off putting if the brett didnt lighten it up and dry it out on the back end. i think its got nice carbonation too. i would really like to buy a bottle of this and see how it compared to what i suspect is a dreggy pour from a keg. its neat beer though, no doubt about that, one of the more interesting yeast complexions going, and a great introduction to this brewery for me. i have seen a little of their beer around lately, this is good enough to make me want to buy more. very very interesting, cool bretty finish.

Pours out a cloudy straw with a thick, rocky head. Smells of bready malts and pungent yeast. Tastes of honeyed bread, earthy, fungal yeast, spice, and dull bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is fluffy with a smooth carbonation. This is a good saison, but not mind-blowing. A little too sweet for me.

It pours a hazy straw yellow with 2 fingers worth of foam and I see some nice lacing.

Yeasty, spicy, wheat, some bitterness. Spices are cloves and pepper.

Spice is up front in the taste. Peppery, cloves, mild, no, rather assertive bitter flavour then ends in a mix of that bitter and a candi sugar sweetness.

Medium body, zesty level of carbonation.

This is quite enjoyable with the tastes going on and is really very very dry in the finish.

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Slightly hazy straw-yellow pour with a huge foamy three finger head with great retention and lacing. Earthy, yeasty nose with hints of lemon, grass, pepper, subtle clove, and apple. The taste follows suit with hints of lemon, white pepper, apple skin, grass, Belgian yeast, subtle funk, and just a touch of sourness. The mouthfeel is light bodied, crisp, and refreshing with a great tangy, dry finish. Overall, this is a classic example of a Belgian Saison.
