look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

One of my couple favorite beers and my favorite saison there is.

A - wonderful. Copper-gold cloudy color, billowy huge (slightly) off-white head that sticks around for a while.

S - wonderful again. It smells effervescent and summery - spritzy somewhat tart lemon, peach, hay, barnyard, a very slight touch of spicy hop. Immediately on opening a tiny hint of banana yeast, but it's gone quickly.

T - pretty much perfect. Lemony tartness but not overwhelming or dominant. The excellent summer, saison notes of grass, hay, flowers - a field. Slight spiciness to balance it out. Initially a bit of honey, pear-like sweet malt, but it finishes perfectly dry. Extremely refreshing but also complex as you could want. What an export strength saison should be, and what brett should contribute - an accent that blends in with the excellent base beer.

M - nicely dry finish, a little prickly carbonation but could be juuust a bit moreso. Again excellent.

Overall, an amazing beer. As a saison lover, this would have to be my favorite saison. Hits the notes from classic Belgian examples but adds the wonderfully fruity, tart brett accent. Well worth seeking out. Honestly don't understand why this isn't massively sought-after.

It would be hard to craft a saison better than this. The carbonation with tiny bubbles is something you notice in the appearance and the mouthfeel and is a highlight of both. You smell the fruity esters and slight funk on the nose that tells you you've got the correct yeast strains. The beer is delicious. Fruity, spicy and everything you'd want in this style. The pear is easily picked up and adds a sweetness that makes this beer so drinkable. I didn't realize that pear juice was utilized, but you can tell right away. A homerun for the style and amongst all styles. Beware of gushers. Have a glass ready.

4.85/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange gold into a tulip. A fine two-finger white head sits on top and hangs around, leaving nice patterns of lacing as I work my way through the glass. Beautiful.

Smell: Complex – it leads with citrus and pepper, along with a little breadiness and honey. There is funk there, but it’s pretty subtle. As it warms up I get some stone fruit notes.

Taste: The citrus, primarily lime, from the Brett continues to lead, but is quickly followed by traditional Belgian pepper and spice notes. Other fruit notes lurk around, and of course there’s a barnyard element. The story for me, though, is the balance. There’s a lot going on here among the citrus and the other fruits, the Belgian pepper and spice and the funk, but it all works together really well. I love Brett and have since I had my first beer with it years ago, but this beer makes me realize that it can be just as enjoyable when it’s laying back in the mix a bit.

Mouthfeel: Very light and clean in the mouth. There’s absolutely no suggestion of the ABV, which is a little higher than many saisons.

Drinkability: See above; although this is definitely one to be savored slowly (not least due to the ABV), it’s very, very drinkable. I think I’m in love.
