Had two bottles on back to back days.
Both poured golden with red highlights under relatively thick heads that left solid lacing.
The first bottle threw citrus, pear, astringent herbs, flowers, and some slate-dominant minerality. Slightly sweet from the honey but much of the honey in this bottle had fermented very dry. Taste echoed smell.
The second bottle lacked the floral minerality but brought out focused tropical citrus (mango and tangerine) while maintaining herbal notes. The second bottle was a bit sweeter.
Brett funk in both bottles. Pleasant sour notes.
Solid carbonation in both and both were a little thick and heavy for the style.
This beers lack of consistency is a little odd. I bought the second after drinking the first for a particular dinner menu and was a little disappointed.
But both bottles were revelatory and unique examples of saison, while staying true to the style.

Foamy. A gusher is right.
Aroma: tropical fruit. Wet hay. Big time peach as the beer warms. Wonderful. Almost no funk. They say this is a Brett beer. Where is the Brett? Otherwise it's a great complex saison aroma.
Taste: pepper, stone fruit like peach or apricot, citrus, pineapple, basil notes. Nice. But not very sour or funky as I was expecting. They say this beer is made with Brett. Where is the Brett? They say this beer is brewed with honey. Where are the honey notes? Let the beer warm a bit. The fruit flavors start to come through more.
I paid 16 bucks for this bottle. Not worth it. I'm starting to think this evil twin stuff is a little overrated. This beer tastes like it might get better with age. It's complex but young.
