4.4/5 rDev +12%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
A rusted amber color, somewhat shiny and brass colored hues as well. A nice middle column of carbonation as well, but a little hard to see. Head is a nice solid two to three fingers tall with off white fluffy character and lots of staying power. Solid looker.
Nice wine and wild yeast fruit character. Hints at oud bruin spice and sour character with some soft clove and solid funk. Some very hint of sweetness of very light toasty brown sugar, and citrus fruit also. Real nice balanced mix going on here.
Palate is really delicious. A very different take on a wild going on here, a real nice first blast of sweet brown malts and molasses like sugar. Peppery sugar action on the finish and a nice hot brett dry funk that matches. A real interesting fascinating finish between sweet malt caramel aromatics and hop earth/floral spicy qualities and funky wild yeast punch.
This is like a caramel brett sundae without the fake cherry on top, which makes it even better.

3.48/5 rDev -11.5%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
750 mL bottle poured into a chalice.
Appearance - Clear amber body. Huge cream head. Sticky lacing and an eternal pillow of foam.
Smell - Funky saison yeast aromas. Mild brett earthiness. Some slight acidic notes and deep caramel malt.
Taste - Sharper acidity, but nothing I'd call sour. A little metallic. Some lemony citrus, maybe from hops or yeast. Sweetness comes from a substantial caramel malt base.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Medium body. Lots of flavors going on in the finish.
Overall - Not what I expected. I think I like it. Strange one though.
