look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottled 11/18/2011. Bottle #1038.

Appearance - Gushed when I opened it. Overflowed the glass. Slightly hazy orange yellow body. Huge white head and great retention.

Smell - Very bretty. Appley esters. Slight bready malt presence. Smells nice, if a little overpowered by the brett.

Taste - Apple esters strong here. Cider-like. Then the brett takes over. Very earthy, but still retains a fair bit of sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Pretty dry. Very highly carbonated. Medium bodied.

Overall - This is extremely bretty, but it's still good. Overpowers any subtlety that the saison had. Fresh, I feel this beer is too sweet. This is better, but a bit monotonic.

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

The beer pours a cloudy golden color with a layer of off white head. The smell is a bit sweeter than I expected and it has a grape note to it. There is an herbal note behind the sweetness. The taste is also rather sweet with a strong grape like presence. Herbal notes also show up in the flavor, but I thought the grapey taste pushed everything else to the background. The carbonation was light and tingly. This was a good beer, but I would have liked the sweet flavors to be a bit more delicate.
