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.

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.
