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.

A: Pours a cloudy yellow/orange color. A dense white head rises to over two finger with impressive lace all the way down. This is a looker.
S: Earthy, peppery yeast up front and center. Fruity esters like banana, and some spicy clove. Lemon rind and finishes with a grassy bitterness. Spot on for a traditional Saison.
T: Again, that earthy, spicy and fruity yeast is up front and very welcoming. Clove and black pepper on the tongue. Banana, lemon rind and white grapes that gives this just a slight tartness. As this warms some bread and biscuit malts come through. A light lingering grassy bitterness. Lovely.
M/D: A light body that is perfectly carbonated. Effervescent, crisp, beautifully clean and dry. A treat to drink, the bottle is gone in no time. This is great for the hot Texas weather, but I can enjoy this year round.

A spot on traditional Saison. That perfect Belgian yeast shines, and works so well with the grassy hops and biscuit malts. An instant favorite of mine, and I need to see if some more are on the shelves ASAP.
