1 pt 9.6 fl oz bottle from CM, poured into a tulip glass.
A- Billowy, three finger head that hangs on the side of the glass as it recedes. A very hazy gold with yellow highlights.
S - Yeast, metallic dirt, some faint bananas and spice
T- Very mild in flavor in all aspects. Yeast, tinge of banana, back end spice , some dirt.
M - Seems on the thin side, the carbonation seemed low (a lot was released during the pour, which was not aggressive). Dry finish.
O - To me, it seems to be missing something. This tastes more in line (according to the bottle) with the aged variety, but there is no way to tell.

Not sure the regular price of this beer but I got it on discount from 15.95 for just 9 bucks. Must be old at least a few months to possibly a year from last spring you never know with beers from this place.
A - Very carbonated I got well over two inches that fades rather slowly. Probably to a good lace ring... yep! Color is a hazy opaque yellow color with no chunks so thankfully it's not TOO old or stored wrong.
S - Fresh and full of Brett that tickles the nostrils like a fresh squeezed lemon. Beneath this I do get some dry funky yeast and maybe some peppery spice but it's mostly sour.
T - Not sure how but I get no sour flavors in the taste is just comes off dry with some bready yeast and very little if any pepper corn or funk. Kind of plain really for such an expensive drink.
M - Bubbly and light Its not too dry and goes down smooth.
Overall I really like the idea of a sour Saison it covered up most of the drying qualities I hate in the style but it really didn't taste very Brett like. In fact it seems like it killed the base a bit since I don't taste many bready malts or pepper corns or anything. Interesting idea but an overpriced flop if you asked me.
