750ml bottle into a tulip
A: Pours a hazy light orange with a big white head that sticks around for a long while and leaves a ton of lacing on the glass.
S: The nose is typical saison with nice notes of lemon zest, citrus, and hay as well as a nice banana/plantain aroma from the brett. Smells pretty sweet.
T: The taste is very sweet with big flavors of malt, sweet orange, and ripe apple. There's also a bit of an earthy taste I am assuming is the brett. The sweetness could be cut a bit more by something else like more hops or a different brett strain.
M: The feel is medium bodied and full of active carbonation.
O: A bit too sweet for the style. I wanted to love this one after reading some reviews but it doesn't live up to others in the style like Saison-Brett or Seizoen Bretta. I think some of the Jester King brews are even better but it's still a tasty beer.
