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.

Served in a tulip glass at the Beer Bistro in Chicago.

Served with a two finger pillowy clean white head and a hazy golden body. The unmistakable smell of Brett-induced funk, with floral and fruit notes on the nose. Opens with the taste of flora and citrus, transitions to earthy, brett funk in the midpalate,and finishes dry and just a bit tart with strong notes of pear. On the lighter side of medium bodied however still features a fairly creamy mouthfeel. A very enjoyable and well-balanced brew.

a: This was a very hazy golden straw color. It poured with a massive rocky head that kept growing for almost a full 5 minutes. It gradually faded, leaving behind large clumps of lace.

s: Nicely dominated by plenty of peppery brett. Hints of yeasty lemons and apricots along with lots of funky, wet grains.

t: Extremely dry overall. I tasted lots of fresh zesty lemon up front. The long drawn out finish is all about the brett; spicy and peppery.

m: Very active, fizzy carbonation over a medium body.

o: Very nice saison overall, reminiscent of pig nun from de Proef. It's been awhile since I've had a funky saison, this is really hitting the spot. Last thought, the label mentions honey but I couldn't find any.

Bomber bottle, purchased in Peeksklill, NY $11.99. "Best Before 2015" on the label

Pours clouded lighter tangarine/amber/golden, under an intiially huge med. khaki head, that slowly fades to a thicker foam, gauzy sheets of fine lacing.

Lemon, honey and pepper on the nose.

Dry, flavorful, over loaded with citric juices, lime and loads of pepper. Carbonation on the high side. Crisp, moderatly tart and bright. Brett showing nicely, with some light funk, but mostly crisply and with more puckeringly dry/citric character.

Lovely beer, go get some

i thought this one was really delicious. not sure why the meh reviews. pours a mildly hazy, peachy burnt gold with a white head that holds and leaves tons of lace. nose carries a lot of spicy yeasty notes along with some fruit and bubblegum notes, a touch of flower, a bit of fresh-bready malt and a subtle brett character. would like to see where the brett takes this beer in six months or so. taste comes off in very good balance with spice, hop and malt blending effortlessly. soft cotton medium body with a mild tingle and pleasant bitterness. alcohol is there and helps amp up the taste, but is barely noticable as a component itself. good brett presence in the finish. no unpleasant aftertastes. solid, enjoyable brew from the twin.

I had this on-tap at The Sidecar in Philadelphia.

Appearance is a golden color, a tad murky. Its` nose contains banana, yeast, malts and pepper. Taking a sip of this saison and I taste bubblegum, more of the yeast, along with fruit and some hops. A very nice tasting beer, one of the few beers that I have sampled from ET. Mouthfeel is medium, a dry, slightly sweet finish to it. For those who appreciate a nice saison, check this one out.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller oversized wine glass. Poured a hazy yellow-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, spices, banana runts, and bubble gum. The flavor was of sweet malt, bubble gum, banana, spices, and bread. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The aroma on this one was really nice and complex. It made me think that this was going to be a massively sweet brew that would make me wish I had a shot for diabetes standing by. However, the flavor was very nice and well balanced and actually tasted like bubble gum which was awesome to experience again as it doesn’t happen often in the brews I drink. Definitely a must try from Evil Twin!

gushed out of the bottle.. thankfully i had a glass handy but it kept gushing out even after i was able to fill the glass with foam. what i was able to get in the glass was a ton of yeast and an orangey pour.. obviously tons of white foam which did leave tons of lacing behind. smells of lemons, jasmine, pepper, brett. the flavor is way more subtle than its scent, but you definitely get a nice funky brett profile throughout. a wonderful tasting saison, nice earthy bitterness, sweet malty backbone, and flower petals. medium body and medium amount of carbonation (thought it'd be higher considering it was a gusher).

if it weren't for it pretty much exploding everywhere, this would've been a extremely pleasant experience. the beer itself was lovely, so i can only recommend to pick it up. after reading other peoples reviews, seems like not many others had the gusher problem. oh well

650ml bottle poured into tulip 7/9/13

A slight gush upon opening but I got it in the glass, hazy pale orange liquid with plenty of bubbles, a big fluffy foam sits around for ages slowly falling to a thick film leaving a few partial rings of lace

S peppery spice, bubblegum, funk, clove, lemon peel, herbal notes, dry cereal, and I swear I get a hint of smoke but I might be crazy, smells pretty bad ass

T more lemon rind and cereals, a hint of booze and orange marmalade, still has what the nose was offering but not quite the intensity but still great stuff

M medium bodied, almost foamy, spicy rind lingers with a little funk

O a nice funky saison, smells the highlight but not lacking anywhere, something I'd drink again as a nice treat

I should've drank this when the sun was shining but even on a rainy evening its hitting the spot. I like a little funk to go with the style and this one delivers

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Slightly hazed golden in color with a creamy white head that leaves ribbons and lots of sticky lace down the glass.

Aroma is a nice combination of grass, hay, earth, a little bit of bubble gum, yeast, and floral hops. Very nice.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with good amounts of grass, earth, and floral characters leading the way, along with a bit of sweet bubblegum, and bread. Very nice and incredible drinkable. No alcohol presence.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation, and somewhat creamy.

Very nice, incredibly drinkable saison, though probably not worth the price point.
