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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy light orange. Decent white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Hmm. Citrus and vegetables. Odd. More citrus than vegetable, but it's still there. Apples. A hint of brett.

Taste - Again it's got a lot of citrus and apple. Very fruity. Some vegetable notes though. Grainy. Pale malt in the finish. I don't get a ton of brett.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I had an old bottle of the regular version of this and it was a brett monster. I'd be interested in aging this. Maybe those weird flavors will pass.
