look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from the tap a cloudy yellow orange color with two fingers of white head.
The aroma had notes of lemon and pineapple along with herbal spice and earthy, funky yeast.
The herbal spiciness was present in the taste as well with lemon, pineapple, yeast and earthy, funky medicinal notes.
Medium bodied and smooth with a moderate carbonation.
A very funky Saison from Evil Twin.
Serving type: on-tap

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

4.05/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: pale-medium amber body, hazy; eggshell white head about a finger high, slims to film and leaves some lace behind
S: herbal and floral notes over tropical fruit and yeast
T: unripe mango and white pepper spice; herbal, yeasty with brett's tart funk; notes of sandalwood and grapefruit peel; honey-sweet flicker on the finish
M: competition between moderate bitterness and yeast tartness, medium-light body, mildly fuzzy carbonation, sweet then drying finish
O: a nice saison with a lot of complexity, really enjoy the brett and fruit and honey combination - EvilTwin seems to have a pretty good feel for brett pairings, and this is no exception

GUSHER! For a long time after I opened my first Biscotti Break (which was a disaster of volcanic gushering), I opened all my Evil Twin (and a few other breweries like Hof Dormaal) beers in the kitchen sink. Then a long period of well behaved ale made me lower my guard. This bottle did not shoot into the air, but had a ferocity of flow that was amazing. In a quick few seconds to run to the sink, I lost 2/3s of the bottle. Eventually:
Poured into a Nostradamus flute, pouring a very hazy, almost opaque caramel amber with a large (but only 2% of the total) white head that had good retention and lacing. Pleasant aroma of bready malt, light saison yeast, stone and citrus fruit, nice. Flavor is Brett, saison yeast, much more subdued stone and citrus fruit. Finishes dry and Bretty with a long aftertaste of the wild yeast, citrus rind and light bittering hops. Light bodied with very active carbonation. A classic Brett inspired saison with an above average, moderately complex fruit component. The wild yeast influence was a bit beyond my preference, but well within the style expectations. A good deal for the price in a 22oz, bomber, perhaps not so much for 7 ounces of actual saison in the glass. My floor was sticky and drunk all night. Back to opening beer in my sink….

4.26/5 rDev +9.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Straight pour from a 22oz bottle to an oversized wineglass (HF stemware); no dating or freshness from what I could see, but this was purchased a bit over a month ago and from what I gather this beer is likely 6-9 months old, give or take. Maybe? Maybe. Not worried.
Appearance (4.5): Gushes like a motherfucker. Crazy eggshell foam fills the glass, showing amazing retention (it just will not die down, for crying out loud), covering a tangerine-orange body that is PERFECTLY hazy. As the head FINALLY recedes, it leaves wide, lazy splotches of lace all over the place. Crazy-ass head.
Smell (4.5): Juices like a motherfucker. Crazy pineapple sherbet and peppery funk, showing some moist earth and hay tones mixed in with everything for that rich, sweet earthiness and odd funk that people call “the barnyard.” Fresh basil, papaya, and candied oranges flesh out the sweet, fruity dimension: straight-up tropical-ass brett. Damn.
Taste (4.25): Funks like a motherfucker. Peppery funk with some medicinal phenols. Lemon flesh and rind show their faces, along with some old pineapple upside-down cake—you know when the fruit gets overripe and the cake is a little questionable, but you eat it anyway? Like that. There’s a good, peppery, funky twang on the finish . . . moderately bready: wheat bread toast attempts to fill out some of the body amidst all that funk.
Mouthfeel (3.75): An easy, dry feel, and almost tannic, with a drying funk. Modest carbonation characterizes the feel (guess there isn’t much left after all that gushing), with a lush foaming action and a modest tingle—pretty nice. It’s got a very good feel, but somewhat off-style.
Overall (4.25): A saison? Maybe. A brett beer? Most definitely. So, so bretty, and done ridiculously well: the aroma is FANTASTIC. I would definitely purchase this again—for the $10 pricetag, you’d be hard-pressed to find such a bretty beer done so tastefully. Overall, it’s relatively light on the saison characteristics (spice? hay? hops? just brett, huh? it’s entirely possible that they just got bulldozed by the tropical funk)—but as a brett story, this is great.
