A: Pours an appetizing hazy reddish-orange, with a large head that fades slowly.
S: bretty funk, lemon, wheat, apples. Sweeter than what I'd expect for the style.
T: The brett is more pronounced on the nose than the taste. Initially, what dominates for me is a green apple or lemon taste followed by a white wine that lingers with a slightly bretty influence. The very dry finish has some earthy hops prevalent, as well as some wheat/dried grass flavor. There is a chalky taste that is most noticeable on the finish.
M: What you'd expect; high carbonation with a medium-light body.
O: This is a great beer. I will seek it out again when I am within range of their distribution.

Pours clear and orange gold with a smal, half finger high fluffy white head. Decent head retention and a slight dripping of lacing.

Right off the bat there is a fruity wave of white grapes, crisp apples and lemon acidity. Belgian spices follow with pepper and coriander.

Washes the palate with green apple, white wine and lemon fruitiness immediately. Pale malt base is rather benign and not grainy at all. Spices of clove, somewhat peppery and lacking in the heavy funk I was expecting from the Brett. Quite phenolic,and finishes mildly acidic and wet. Earthy Noble hops add some grassiness and a drying feel.

Carbonation is really lively in the mouth, bordering over done. Full saison body, somewhat dry and clean.

Well crafted saison that has a bright fruit character and mild acidity. The Brett is really a non player in the scheme of things and a let down in that manner. Quite drinkable and well crafted but unremarkable without some age on it.

This is one of my favorite beers. It has just a bit of sweetness but not much, and wonderful complexity. There is a cloudiness to it that adds to its mystique. Also the fact that it is still reasonably hard to get and unavailable on the East Coast. The bottle itself conveys a certain sort of old-world mustiness.
