Big brett aroma like I've popped open a not-so-fresh (in the best way) Orval, but the body is lighter and drier as a saison should be. In fact among dry Belgians, this feels especially light for an 8% beer. The big barnyard funk aroma dominates and rolls through the flavor with a mix of citrus rind and spicy floral notes. There's a mild bitterness on par with Saison Dupont and the hops blend nicely in the bret. Hell of a beer, but I would like a touch more body to carry the flavor. Just a little more malt maybe, but it's still an excellent saison.

Hazy golden body with a creamy white head and great lacing. Herbal, fruit, banana and yeast aromas and flavors. Sour Brettanomyces finish.

Bottle purchased at Oliver's in Albany, NY.

Pours quite foamy, with a huge head. It's a golden yellow color. There's a good amount of lacing.

Smells really funky and rustic, lots of Brett/barnyard type aromas. There's some lemony citrus, too.

The taste is pretty similar. It's got a very zesty tartness to it, with a big yeast character here- both the typical Belgian farmhouse yeast flavor, and the stronger musty and chalky Brett character.

This is light bodied, with a crisp, lively mouthfeel. There is a very high, almost distracting amount of carbonation.

This was most excellent. If it was slightly less carbonated, it would be better.

From the the 750mL bottle into a teku glass.

Lots of fluffy, airy, sudsy, light foam off of the pour. It forms into a plateau over the body and just sits there before dragging lace along the sides of the glass. The body is orange with blonde hues, upward cascades of surging carbonation, and a beautiful glow. The beer is not transparent but it's not cloudy either. 4.5

Peppers and plums, peppers and plums. Pungent pineapple with some sticky sweetness. Then there's some citrus. This is just a fruit festival. There's even some banana-like yeast aroma. 4.5

Well the first sip kind of reminds me of a tripel. It's sweet and thick-bodied and almost syrupy. There's not nearly the wealth of fruit flavors I'd been smelling, but the plum remains. Yeast can be tasted giving some peppery notes. As I get deeper into the beer, a slight hop presence becomes more noticeable and with it some sweet orange and citrus flavor. This is tasty. 4.25

I've gotta say, this is a refreshing beer. While I initially found it sweet, it dries out more and more as I drink it. It's not a light beer by any means, but it's very easy to drink. Great sippability. Bitterness is light but noticeable as is the yeasty feel around mid-palate. 4.25

Tasty, refreshing, good. Plenty of flavor to boot. Excellent.
