Saison bottled with Brett B. or what was Brett Bruxelles 5 years ago but now is considered their house strain.
appearance - nice orange, beautiful, amazing, exactly as it should be.
smell - a little bit of funk, maybe some coriander, or some other spice.
taste - the taste comes together with some mandarine oranges, a bit of brett, and hits you on the back of the throat with some bitterness. There is definitely a nice malty, bready background going on. Maybe a little too much bitterness on the end. A tad bit of tartness on the end that works really well and makes the mouth water.
mouthfeel - dry, highly carbonated, very nice.
overall - This is a great Saison. The brett is very melow, and the bitterness is a little high. Over all, a finely crafted ale. I'd definitely buy this again!

Pours half finger of head on a clear light golden colored body.
The aroma is smokey applesauce, soap, lemon and pear all mixed up in a nice way.
The taste is sharp, approaching bitter. Retains bright fruit: apple and pear.
Crisp texture with moderate carbonation.
Pleasant and enjoyable.

The first pour was nearly clear yellow with a big pillowy head. The last pour was opaque, swimming with yeast.
A pleasant fruitiness dominates the nose. Apple and pear, rich malt, slight vinegar-brett-funk.
Rich complex malts in taste, hints of citrus, ripe juicy pear, brett-funk and concrete dryness.
Extraordinary carbonation, better than champagne. Juicy, with a very long dry finish.
Excellent farmhouse ale from Tomme and the Abbey.
