Live review, taking a break from studying for my Contracts final. Thanks for making my study break more enjoyable, cavemanlawyer!

Vintage 2011

Look - The cork comes out of the bottle with a large pop and a bit of gunsmoke and whiff of clementine. The pour yields a big, bulbous head that exceeds the capacity of my Lost Abbey chalice, sitting above the rim like a cream crown. Murky orange-tan hued beer with thick globs of meringue foam lacing clinging to the sides of the glass and a small pillow of foam resting on top of the beer after a couple minutes and sips.

Smell - Earthy, light rye notes to start with some clementine and quince hiding in the background, maybe some D'Anjou pear, perhaps a squeeze of lemon and the barest hint of fresh wheat and light bready malt to balance. Fairly faint overall but nice.

Taste - Gentle sweet-tart lemon-orange juice to start, and again with a light quince note, and as it opens up a bit of pineapple too. The middle shows fresh wheat and then intermingling rye and earthy brett must along with some Macintosh apple/D'Anjou pear. The finish is oil of lemon and clementine zest with a hint of white and pink peppercorns. Pretty tasty, with just enough light tart up front to balance the faintly sweet honey and the slightly bitter, earthy brett end.

Mouthfeel - Really nice, medium body smoothed out pleasantly by the oat presence, with just enough tannic astringency on the tongue in the finish that makes it not too heavy. Perhaps the best part of this beer.

Overall - A solid effort by Block 15. Clearly a well thought-out brew, which is intentionally very drinkable and balanced, though not overally flavorful or too much in any one direction. All the flavors meld together quite nicely, but it is not very exciting by any means. Recommended pairings would be goat gouda, white fish, and pan-seared chicken.

2012 vintage

It's a clear gold with no evidence of carbonation (odd based on the oral experience). Smells of classic belgian yeast, some grain, some bit of metal, rice and flowers (I'm not a botanist). Flavor is yeast, sweet grains, a touch of corn, and a slight and subtle tartness on the finish. The mouthfeel is thin with exceptionally hi carb and a dry finish. As it warms, this beer is much better. Initially, it's a standard, low excitement carb and as it warms, it becomes yummy.

Opened at 4/20 tasting.

Pours a fairly clear plain golden amber with a huge off white head. Good head retention.

Fairly spicy, slightly funk brett, pepper, hint of fruity ester, banana maybe.

Pretty bright and floral taste, spices again, dry, touch of brett, pear or banana or some kind of sweet estery fruit.

Nice carbonation, refreshing and drinkable.

Solid brett saison.

750ml C&C of the 2012 vintage. Poured into a Cantillon taster 7/7/2014.

A- Slightly hazy straw yellow body. For some reason, it is particularly appealing. Two finger white head with good retention, a bit of lacing.

S- Peppery, slight lemon zest, oak, a bit of funk. Not particularly complex, but it does have a slight sweetness to it in comparison to Dupont.

F- Lemon zest, a bit of funk (but not a ton), honey, peppercorns, oak. Again, not particularly complex and does not have much tartness like I'd prefer, but this is well-put together with all of its components.

M- Medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth-drinking. The finish is a bit more bitter than I'd like, perhaps from the noble hops.

O- Solid saison, I know this has a relatively low bottle count but it's basically a slightly better version of fresh, unskunked Saison Dupont.
