3.75/5 rDev -6.3%
Pours a bright, transparent golden-straw color with a lively, fluffy white head. Lots of effervescing bubbles; it looks like a refreshing beer! Smell is very bready, with heavy brett influence. Some alkali tartness / bitterness comes through. Mild citrusy hops and black pepper. Taste is more subdued than the nose, plenty of brett funk, citrus, fresh dough, pepper, not much for real tartness like the nose would lead you to expect. Mouthfeel is light, crisp and very refreshing. Overall, very enjoyable, only complaint is I think some more sour or tartness on the palate would work wonders with this flavor profile.

Bottle shared by Umberto at Curran's tasting.
Pours a hazy light yellow, with some bright orange tinges. One inch head, lots of lacing.
Smells like lemon, hay, black pepper, Belgian yeast, etc.
The taste is similar. There is a nice peppery spice bite up front, with a yeasty, chalky Belgian yeast blast afterwards. Some spicy grain, lemon hay, grass, and citrus zest. Very tasty.
Light bodied, crisp, smooth mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Very, very drinkable.
A lot of people dog on the Bruery, but they really do make some incredible stuff when they avoid infection problems. This is just delicious.

Big bottle poured into Unibroue glass. *This is my first beer from The Bruery
A- Light goldern color. No sediment on first pour. Tall fluffy white head.
S - Light citrus, farmhouse yeasts. Subtle
T- Very well balanced saison. The farm house yeastiness is the star of the show, but still mellow and inviting. No harshness or sharp edges on this one. Really peaks mid palet and fades quickly inviting you in for another sip. Slight sourness, but just for fraction of a second.
M- Very drinkable and smooth.
O- This is a super well put together saison. Not in your face or "showy". Easy drinking and enjoyable. I picture taking this to a the park, spreading a blanket, and consuming with some cheese and meat.
