22 ounce bottle - $13.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a clouded, darkish amber body with a lofty, airy crest of whitish suds.
Smell: Honeyish, faintly toasty malts with the most prominent note additions being mint leaf, melon juice, something akin to pickled ginger, citric tropical fruit, a splash of Orangina, peppery spices, wrapped in phenols and a noted mustiness.
Taste: Some slightly sweet honey stretched over dry, day-old toasted biscuit tops. The sweetness quickly recedes. Then, the remaining flavors don't simply unfold leisurely, they come rushing in all at once: spearmint, melon juice, citrus blossoms, grapefruit, white pepper, faux ginger, sandalwood, cantaloupe, clean sweat, With each sip, gulp, whatever, the flavors just come pouring in like idiots shoppers streaming into a Wal-Mart on Black Friday -- ah, Christ, somebody just trampled the melons and kept on running to the toy aisle! Dry, phenolic finish. Gets a bit tangier, citric, and gingeresque as it warms.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. High carbonation, but it soon tapers off.
Overall: While not nearly good enough for me to change my saison allegiance, it's still a solid, brett-infused saison, albeit a bit tough on the ole wallet.

Thanks to Hopswagger for this one!
22oz served in a Prairie teku
In honor of my twins on Father's Day weekend.
A - golden body with a massive meringue head. Incredible amounts of 3d lacing.
S - tropical fruits galore, pineapple, mango, papaya, peach, some soapy spiciness. Fresh grain, yeasty bread.
T - tropical fruits, lots of strong papaya, pineapple, guava, stone fruits, peach and persimmon. A good amount of citrus as well. Some funkiness. Candy malts are lightly sweet with some faint breadiness. Finishes dry and spicy.
M - medium full body, lush feel, moderate carbonation but doesn't distract and seems mellow. Dry finish.
A tropical forward saison that's bright with a great mouthfeel. I loved this beer.

Enjoyed on tap at Bier Station. Served in a large Belgian tulip glass with a flared rim.
Appearance - Pours a murky saffron yellow color with not much variation in color tone, even where light attempts to pass through. Atop the opaque body sits a one finger head that is white with just the slightest hint of parchment colored shading. Retention is moderate, and the foam leaves significant sheets of lacing as I drink it down, with a buildup of head around the edges of the glass.
Smell - A nice bit of citrus is present--some lemon and maybe grapefruit zest, but the real king here is a barnyard funk, as one would expect with a brett-infused farmhouse ale. Musty and pungent, with notes of wet hay along with fresher notes of newly-cut grass and alfalfa. Touches of floral sweetness and pollen as well.
Taste - Tangy and pungent funkiness is the predominant characteristic of the taste, with complementary elements of buttered biscuit, citrus zest, peppercorn and herbs, as well as a pleasantly hoppy bitterness cutting through the plethora of floral and light fruit flavors, including nectar, honeydew and pear.
Mouthfeel - Body is on the light side of medium, with a hint of chewiness. Moderate to high carbonation and a mostly dry finish with just a drop of sweetness.
Overall, I'm a sucker for brett saisons, but this one is quite tasty all the same. My exposure to Evil Twin isn't very high, but of the few I've had, most have been quite good--this one included. Perhaps I will have to seek more out from these Danish brewers.
