750ml into a tulip. The brew appears a clear golden yellow color with a solid white froth. Some patchy lace sticks to the glass as the cap fades.

The smells includes plenty of tropical brett notes that gets dry and yeasty with spice like pepper and some bready grain. There is an herbal element before getting faintly cheesy across the back like footy pils/sulfur.

The taste is dry and spicy with a lot of brett earthiness and pepper/straw grain aspects. Some herbal bitterness and a fruity complexity like pineapple blending to more tropics then apple and pear skins.

This is a light bodied brew with moderate spritzy carbonation. It is super dry, crisp and crushable. The awesomeness of this brew is in the simplicity and subtlety yet amazing drinkability factor. I would crush this regularly if given the opportunity to have it on hand at all times. Great stuff right here.

Big thanks to cubanbeerguy for the bottle. Tasted 28 Feb 2014.

Pours clear pale golden yellow (until I stir up the yeast at the bottom). 1.5 fingers of white head, good retention, decent lacing.

Smell is awesome. Spicy saison yeast, earthy brett funk, and honey sweetness. A light floral touch in the back. Lovely.

Taste is bright and varied, with all sorts of interesting things going on. Peppery spice, floral lightness, fruity sweetness, and a soft bitter touch in the finish. Fantastic.

Feel is even better than the taste. Light-bodied but expansive, filling my mouth with flavor just like I want it to. Carbonation is perfect. Prickly and tingly up front, relaxing to foamy and buoyant as it progresses. Excellent.

This is potent, delicate, and massively varied. Such a well-crafted beer. My new almost-favorite brett saison, just a small notch below Boulevard's Saison-Brett.

750ml bottle from the recent fall 2013 release. Thanks to R.J. for sending this one as an extra. Poured into a Surly goblet today, 1/20/2014.

App- bright yellow, hazy and juicy looking. Effervescent with a very large head that takes time to dissipate, still has very good retention and never truly disappears. Lots of lacing.

Smell- crisp, Brett funk, faint citrus, peppers, some bread.

Flavour- also crisp but a bit on the sweeter side of a saison. Bread, brett, citrus, slight vegetal pepper quality, hint of ginger.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, very good carbonation, none-too-dry finish of characteristic Brett funk. Good amount of body, would have preferred a bit less of a body and more drinkability.

Overall- very good saison from down south. Complex but I miss the tartness and drinkability that comes with Hill Farmstead saisons. Will have to try the non-Brett version.
