3.98/5 rDev -7.4%
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.

Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy dark beige color ale with a huge dirty head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with light funky yeasty notes is quite sublime. Taste is dominated by dry rustic notes with some funky yeast notes and a dry floral finish. Dry Brett notes are clearly identifiable but are not overwhelming and keep the malt base flavours intact. Body is full with super great carbonation (a bit of a gusher as well BTW) and no apparent alcohol. I could drink this beer this every day of the year!!!

Poured from a 375ml bottle
Ap - Clear, brilliant gold. Very lively pour. It wasn't a gusher like a lot of people have stated in the past. The head is thick and stays around at about 1/8th inch the whole way down. It's also very sticky and leaves great lace.
Ar - Simple, yet complex. Horse blanket, dust, tropical fruits, chalky even.
T - similar to the nose in that it's simple and yet complex. The Brett is really noticeable, with an apricot-ish middle followed by a lingering dry, chalky aftertaste.
M - The carbonation is perfect. The mouthfeel is creamy yet lively. This is one of those beers everyone should try at least once. THIS is how Brett saison's should taste.
