One of the more pleasing saisons I've had. Lot of earthy, lemony, aromas, bubblegum, big grain note. The rye comes through on the flavor too, lot of lemony citrus, and some tart rasperry notes. Really well balanced interesting. Pretty rich when fresh, have heard this sits well for a year or so

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. 06/14/13 on the neck.

A: Pours a clear golden amber with a very large dense white head. Average amount of visible carbonation in the body. Head sticks around for a real long time, leaving behind some nice lacing on the glass.

S: Certainly has some Belgian qualities going for it in the aroma department. A grape, apple or cherry like fruit character permeates the aroma coupled with a hint of sweetness. Farmhouse character is in there as well with a bit of spiciness from the rye.

T: Nice flavor here, really blended together well. Starts off with a bit of light fruitiness reminiscent of a light belgian tripel. Brett yeast comes in and gives it a earthy farmhouse twist. Mild sweetness brings up the rear and compliments the rye malt. As you add the yeast at the bottom of the bottle a bit more of the Brett funkiness comes out.

M: Medium body with ample carbonation. Quite dry from the Brett yeast which I like. Crisp finish with just a touch of stickiness.

Overall I'm enjoying this beer. Lots of complex flavors in this that all meld together to create something better. Worth a try.
