Served from a bomber.
A - Body is cloudy straw yellow with greenish and gold highlights. About a 1/2 finger of coarse white foam forms that fades quickly.
S - Lots of citrusy, piney hops in the nose. Smells much more like an IPA than a saison. Not much else is detectable beyond the hops. Possibly a hint of those toasted malts?
T - By far, one of the more interesting beers I have ever consumed...really. Hops take a prominent role in the flavor following the trend of the aroma. But almost equally potent are the more typical Saison flavors of bubblegum, pear, sweet berries and flowers. Hop bitterness packs somewhat of a wallop through the finish and slightly overpowers the other flavors.
M - Thin-to-medium body with a fairly clean finish. Not as dry and crisp as most saisons I have sampled. The extra hop kick gives this beer a bit of a sappy, resinous mouthfeel.

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.
