Enjoyed on tap at Bier Station. Served in a large Belgian tulip glass with a flared rim.

Appearance - Pours a murky saffron yellow color with not much variation in color tone, even where light attempts to pass through. Atop the opaque body sits a one finger head that is white with just the slightest hint of parchment colored shading. Retention is moderate, and the foam leaves significant sheets of lacing as I drink it down, with a buildup of head around the edges of the glass.

Smell - A nice bit of citrus is present--some lemon and maybe grapefruit zest, but the real king here is a barnyard funk, as one would expect with a brett-infused farmhouse ale. Musty and pungent, with notes of wet hay along with fresher notes of newly-cut grass and alfalfa. Touches of floral sweetness and pollen as well.

Taste - Tangy and pungent funkiness is the predominant characteristic of the taste, with complementary elements of buttered biscuit, citrus zest, peppercorn and herbs, as well as a pleasantly hoppy bitterness cutting through the plethora of floral and light fruit flavors, including nectar, honeydew and pear.

Mouthfeel - Body is on the light side of medium, with a hint of chewiness. Moderate to high carbonation and a mostly dry finish with just a drop of sweetness.

Overall, I'm a sucker for brett saisons, but this one is quite tasty all the same. My exposure to Evil Twin isn't very high, but of the few I've had, most have been quite good--this one included. Perhaps I will have to seek more out from these Danish brewers.

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.

Excellent mouthfeel.

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.
