A- Slight earthy brett is present along with some of the white pepper notes that reminds me of Saison dupont.

A-Dark rich golden with a creamy head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Clarity is very high, especially for a bottle conditioned and unfiltered beer.

F- The traditional phenols of a classic saison are there along with some very slight undertones of earthy, brett character. The malt bill shines through on this one though with a nice bready flavor.

M- The carbonation level is high, and appropriate for style. The body is full, but the dryness of the style is still apparent.

O- A nicely nuanced saison. The brett and malt character are a great addition. The great qualities of a Saison remain, but this beer has a beautiful level of complexity that makes drinking it a joy.
