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.

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.

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

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….
