Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to erichxedge for sharing this one.

Bottled 3/28/13.

Pours a clear dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, yeast, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour Brett, funk, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty Brett and funk presence.

750ml bottle poured into a Russian River stemmed glass.

A - Dark, dark brown in color with a frothy 3 fingers of mocha head that shows good staying power with lots of foamy lacing.

S - Super bretty barnyard funk, dirty and earthy. Chocolate and cocoa powder, cherries, berries and raspberries.

T - Oaky...woody. Cherries and cocoa, quite bitter, tobacco, smoky and funky.

M - funky, medium body with lowish foamy carbonation.

O - Very good and interesting saison. Fairly unique. Would definitely like to have this one again.

pour was black. big cocoa head filled the glass. dark all around

sweet dark fruit, tart and sweet. slightly one dimensional.

sweet and tart dark fruit. very one dimensional and simple. judging from earlier reviews this had more saison characteristics but that is not the case now. barely any funk, zest, spice, etc. but, it was delicious.

light body, mild to moderate carbonation.

possibly infected, but in a great way. this was adored by everyone.
