This was a gusher! The super cloudy, yellow ochre liquid was topped by a gigantic, tight, frothy, off white crop of sea foam. As the head faded it left large chunks of thick, sticky lacing in its wake. Due to the gushing, large yeast particles of collected in the base of the glass. A thick, foamy film coated the liquid and lasted throughout the session.
The aroma was really interesting and complex. Crisp and fresh. Super fruity and funky with lots of bretty tartness. Powdery and dry yeast notes were quite apparent. Spices, including clove and coriander, were noticeable as well. With time, the tart and funky qualities intensified and the nose turned almost gueuze-like.
There was a lot going on in the flavor profile as well. Sweet malts came through on the front end. It tasted like there was some Belgian candi sugar as well. Quite fruity. Wheaty with notes of lemon and hay in the center. A musty, barnyard-like character appeared as well. Touch of oak. As the beer moved along the palate, the flavor profile dried out substantially. Citrus rind and earthy bitterness lingered on the crisp, clean finish. As the beer warmed, the musty, funky, barnyard character intensified. Some white wine-like characteristics appeared as well.
The mouthfeel was outstanding. As would be expected with any gushing beer, this one was highly effervescent. Almost Champagne-like on the palate. The light, frothy, fluffy liquid turned pillowy soft after it settled on my palate. Amazingly plush and silky smooth.
Seizoen Bretta is an amazingly flavorful and complex brett-infused saison. I love the fact that this style keeps getting more popular in the craft beer world.

"Best by 08/2018"
Hazy golden color with a massive white head.
Smells great - stone fruit, flowers, peppery spice, some bretty sharpness, good complexity, extremely attractive.
Tastes terrific - peach, hay, spice, moderate but refreshing acidity, dry, long finish with just a touch of bitterness developing, good intensity of flavor, balance, complexity, and drinkability.
Tiny bubbles, cushy texture, extremely refreshing and drinkable.
One of my very favorite saisons, never fails.
