look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Side Project Brewing Co. long stemmed tulip from a 750ml bottle.

Bottle No. 58812
Best by: 02/2019

Pours a beautiful hazy light orange color with some nice golden honey hues on the edges. There is a nice 1 inch white-to-off-white head that is dense and has great retention. A gorgeous looking beer.

Aroma is bready and grainy with nice fruit juice notes. Nice funky brett notes of dried wood, cedar, barnyard and slight tartness.

Flavor starts off with nice notes of fruit juice. Notes of pear and apple juice. Nice grainy sweetness that is enveloped by an awesome Brett funk and some good spice. Slight tartness is present with a nice fluffy carbonated body. Mild lemony notes mixed with bread and some oak as well. Solid saison.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Reddish-orange with a full, off-white head that very slowly pops itself away.

Smells estery with the yeast up front followed by green apple, orange and lemon zest. Spice floats by at the edge right before the brett aroma comes in.

Taste is a wonderful with a disarray of fruit, lemon zest and spice. Tart at the end with a wrapping of rind. Distinct. Flavorful. Fulfilling.

Nicely carbonated with a medium body, but a bit chalky. Crisp all the way down with a hint of alcohol.

The perfect mix of flavor and drinkability for the big beer summer club, of which I am an honorary member.

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

A: 4.5 Hazy, orange/gold. Pours a fairly large off-white head that dissipates rather fast. Good lacing.

S: 4.75 Strong smell that’s really nice. Lots of green apple. Smells tart and a little funky. Also grapes and even a little oaky aroma present. Some Belgian yeast in the background giving the usual ester spice and fruitiness.

T: 4.5 Sweet malt up front followed quickly by Belgian yeast. Fruity ester and a bit of banana with the yeast. There’s also a lingering tartness in the background adding in the green apple from the nose. Ends with just a little bit of bitterness along with some bread and clove. Not as much funk as was on the nose.

M: 4.5 Great overall, especially for the style. It coats the palate without being too thick. A bit dry at the end that makes you want more. Drinking it while it’s fairly cold out, but I could definitely see this a perfect summer brew.

O: 4.75 I really love this saison. I usually like the style and don’t seek them out too often, but this one is really special. The flavors flow and develop beautifully on the palate and each sip is very interesting and you find something new.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Beautiful golden honey color. Small one finger white head.

S: I got a ton of lemon and orange citrus aromas, a very sweet funk smell, not overwhelming at all very pleasant.

T: Wow did I enjoy this. A nice lemon tartness up front almost immediately followed by that very pleasant brett funk flavor, its in your face but at the same time its not. On the back end you get a lot more of that citrus flavor with a nice malt backbone.

MF: Very crisp and sharp with a nice dry finish. Extremely smooth.

O: This is up there with some of the best saisons and being a true farmhouse ale I am thoroughly impressed by this beer. Citrus and funk with a smooth crisp finish. I will buy this again.

I purchased this at whole foods in Fremont, enjoyed chilled in a tulip.

The color is golden with light haze and thick three finger white head with visible carbonation and lots of lace. The smell is great -tons of tropical fruit light pineapple and subtle funk with mild herbal acommpaniement with slight grainy floral and citrus juicy aroma. The feel is excellent with lots of bretty texture and medium carbonation with slight herbal and spiced quality mild alcohol and nice dry finish.

The flavor is very good with great brett which is tropical and fruity bringing a juicy and earthy flavor with light spice and citrus tanginess almost grapefruity with mild zest and light hint of pepper in the very dry finish with a mild hop and alcohol taste. Overall I really enjoyed this, I was wishing I could have gotten more, the brett character is excellent and this is perhaps one of the best bretted saisons I have had recently. I recommend this highly.
