2010 vintage (bottled in 03/2012), big thanks to merc for sharing, served ~cellar temp
The beer pours a slightly hazy rich amber with a thin white head and loose lacing. The nose is potently bretty with a delicious white wine undertone and a bit of oaky, maple syrup-like sweetness. It drinks with a sweet, slightly spicy malt base upfront followed by a semi-dry brett, wine barrel finish. There is very little bitterness and almost a syrupy, slightly undercarbonated, sweet mouthfeel. This beer is delicious and has aged beautifully. I'd say the rye adds a subtle spice at this point with a bigger brett and wine barrel palate takeover. I'd definitely recommend grabbing a bottle of this if available.

Brought a bottle to our local June BA Meet-Up - thanks, Sean.
750ml. corked & caged bottle, forgot to check what number in the series. Bottle conditioned. Opened without a fuss. Plentiful carbonation, and long-lasting. Mouthfeel is dryish, pleasantly tannic from the rye, I'd assume. Aroma of honey, malt and yeast. Darker than a typical saison, and not at all funky. Very refreshing, but was hoping for some tang. Alcohol hides well - not fusel at all. Delicious regardless of my expectations. Hope to enjoy it again soon.

Pale orange body, good sized cap of slowly settling white foam. Nice lacing as well. Funky brett nose takes the lead, light booziness; yeasty fruit esters. Lots of musty barn notes.
The flavor is surprisingly tame after the nose; the brett is there with its accompanying funkiness but it’s quite reserved. I’d love to see how this develops in the bottle over time but alas couldn’t afford more than a single shared bottle at 30 dollars a pop. Other flavor notes include yeasty spice and fruits, particularly lemon and orange; mild sweet malt, grainy wheat. Finish is quite dry.
Medium bodied with crisp carbonation and a clean mouthfeel. Quite a nice beer but not something so exceptional I’d spring for again at the price. Glad I got to try it for sure, though.
