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.

650ml bottle. Another saison, as the 'season' quickly wanes, this one brewed with honey.
This beer pours a very hazy, cloudy medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves a pretty decent array of layered sedimentary rock lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.
It smells of sharp, edgy earthy yeast, semi-sweet wheaty cereal malt, white and black pepper, very tame leathery funk, dry lemon zest, and herbal, floral hops. The taste is still rather cutting up front, what with the sassy yeast, dry citrus pith, and zingy pepper dust all sort of conferring as such, before some slightly less pungent lemon rind 'fruitiness' comes aboard, alongside a mild earthy funk, understated orchard stone fruitiness, mild white pepper spiciness, and touch of finally manifested ethereal honey sweetness.
The bubbles are fairly hefty, and zingy for the most part, with a hollow frothiness, the body medium-light in weight, and a tad acrid in its attempt at smoothness. It finishes quite dry, the yeast still large and in charge, the citrus and drupe fruitiness hanging tough, and da funk loitering like it wasn't exactly a misdemeanor.
A decent enough saison, though the honey has a hard time convincing me that it actually exists. Yeasty, wheaty, spicy, and a bit boozy - that's what this one is all about. As for Ron or Ryan (is he a beast?), I really have no fucking clue who they are, and even less gumption to learn more, at this particular point in time.
