A: Semi-opaque, golden colour. Puffy and stubborn head eventually reduces to a film.

S: Peaches, pears, apricot, and a layer of mustiness.

T: Opens up with strong oaky barrel character and that persists the whole way through for me. Lots of fruit (same as the nose) and that musty skin character of the brett, which opens up further in subsequent glasses from the bottle. The sourness is almost gueuze-like, much older and more developed character than typical in the saison-brett's I've had. This is an outstanding one. Gueuze like acidity as well.

M: Crisp, semi-dry.

O: An absolutely outstanding example of a farmhouse ale. Premium price, but I think it lives up to it.

Thanks to Rado for sharing this one at jmgrub's tasting.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, fruit, Brett, white wine, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit, Brett, and whine wine flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of Brett bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with great wine barrel aged smells and tasty flavors.

Bottle (2012)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, blatantdream!

(Aged for 1.5 years)

Cloudy sunset golden and orange. Initially, a thick, creamy, large-bubbled near-white head. Quite persistent with significant and pretty, sticky lacing left down the glass. Pretty saison, though it appears a touch thicker than most others in the style. Not a criticism, as this is a very pretty beer.

An earthy, leathery Brett character leads, along with some tart sour lemon and citrus notes. There's some stone fruit character and green grape as well, but lots of Earth and integrated Brett character. An additional mustard seed aroma is also present slightly.

As with the aroma, the earth- and leather-forward Brett notes stand out against stone fruit and pineapple flavors, next to green grapes, and some lemon. A slightly sour character surrounds the entire flavor. Moderate bitterness, especially for the style.

A heavier-bodied saison, though with good amounts of carbonation. Drinkable and dry, but a bit of a heavier mouthfeel, overall.

Tasty, delicious, interesting, and unique.
