what a special beer this is, one of the best straight up brett experiences i have had in some time. sunny blonde beer with some appropriate yeast haze and a tall white airy head that rises well above the rim of the glass and clings on for ages. tart and funky is the nose, with citrus in there too. more brett than saison yeast, and just the right hop selection and dosage for this beer to be bitterly balanced but yeast not hop flavored predominantly. not often i get a beer of this depth and quality, just so alive on the palate, with the brett getting a little puckery later on. wet grass and orchard fruit notes come from the saison yeast, and the wheat malt base seems the perfect vehicle for these light summery interesting flavors to link up. one of the most dry saisons i can recall, with the brett reconditioning being fully complete. im left refreshed and intrigued and thirsty for more, i love when beer makes me this happy!
