A Brett saison in the vein of several others, Anchorage, Prairie, and Jolly Pumpkin all come to mind, though it definitely succeeds on it's own merits.

Hazy saturated golden orange, initially two fingers of foam that ebb down to a thin skim and collar around the edges, flecks of spotty lace all around the glass.

Aromas of dried pineapple, hayloft, damp musty hay, resiny greenery. Subtle but nicely complex and interesting.

Flavors follow suit, it's more softly tart than sour, easily segueing into a panoply of wild yeasty expressions. Persimmon, lemon rind, orange pith, florals, drying oak and a light Bretty must in the finish. Fruity with a mellow tartness that compliments nicely. Body is fairly light but it has a pleasant creamy texture. Very well balanced and drinkable. Hits all the right notes for me, highly recommended.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden amber with active carbonation and a fine one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of orange family citrus, mild tropical fruit, saison yeast, hint of funk and earthiness. Flavor is slightly tart citrus, light brett, Belgian spicing, citrus rind, hints of oak and white wine. Medium bodied with peppery carbonation. A nicely made citrusy saison with only a hint of barrel or vinous character, but enough to make it interesting. Great carbonation that fun to watch and great mouth feel. Pleasant, but not enough sets it apart to justify another bottle for me at the price point.

Pours a hazy golden dark yellow; fluffy white had that never seems to go away.

Nose is heavy yeast, herbal and floral, straw, but the red wine barrel gives it a little oak and sweetness. The flavor is floral, fruity, a tad sweet and just a faint bitterness balanced with some citrus sweetness. The finish is nice, a little acid, but smooth. Overall, this is a pretty good beer and I am a big fan of red wine barrel aged saison.

The brew murks around our Rosie O’grady’s tulips a sandy amber coloring, with decent haze, and no sediment to be found. The head stands tall, soft, and beautifully. The nose has great funk to it, with big dried grassiness, ammonias, lightly fruit and banana-brushed esters, adding sweetness, and decent toast to a wheaty European malt base. All of the wood and densely tart fruitiness of the wine barrels is saved for the flavoring, where it competes with dried and fresh grassiness, lemon balm, funky mustiness, herbal and grassy hops, maltiness of wheat, pales, pilsners, and toasted barley, esters, amines, and ammonia. The feel is crisp, somewhat creamy, and nicely drying and tannic to the palate. The abv is easy, and so is the sip.

Overall, we are very happy to see Omnipollo now distributed in our region, and picked this guy up today at our local spot. According to the bottle this is a collaboration between Omnipollo and Stillwater, brewed at De Molen in the Netherlands, a story as odd and curious as their label art. In comparison to the nose, the flavoring is much, much more sour. We suspect this is probably from the wine barreling, which tastes like, chardonnay wood, or some other dry white. We were also surprised to find a decently robust hoppiness to it, lightening the mood a bit. The subtle wood, however, is probably our favorite thing about the beer, as it takes the tartness to the next level through the taste. Despite this complexity and the grassy funk throughout, this is an extremely refreshing offering and is as seasonally appropriate as it is smooth and delicious.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an orange-yellow color and a cloudy texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that lasted a fair amount of time. Great lacing.

S: A surprisingly fruity aroma (surprising for a saison), with hints of the typical funkiness as well.

T: Tasted of light fruit (citrus especially), brett, light malt, a little hops, the saison funk, and a hint of spice. Much fruitier than I expected, but this is a welcome addition. Quite robust and flavorful.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a prickly finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: Not exactly your classic saison, but an interesting interpretation. Lively, tasty, and drinkable.

Poured into a Crooked Stave tulip.

Pours a hazy golden color with half finger of white head. Light lacing remains. Tart lemon, pears and grapes on the nose. Very vinous. light oak. Taste is Funky apple and grapes with light oak and plenty of funky yeast. Dry and well carbed. Easy to drink.

A nice tart saison with good vinous notes and light oaky.
