"Special Brettanomyces yeast provides added dryness and crisp complexity to the Seizoen Bretta. Bottle conditioned with pear juice for a natural carbonation."

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.

Pours a hazy orange with billowy white head that fades into a frothy cap. Big nose of Brett, fruity esters and a bit of spice. Hits the palate bitter with nice doughy malt backbone. Finishes dry with a slight funk aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin and effervescent. An outstanding farmhouse ale.

Got this one at a liquor store in Vermont. From notes.

A - Poured a great cloudy orange colour. Lot's of carbonation came to a three finger fluffy white head. Wicked lace rings and a finger of retention. Good look for the style.

S - Brett, orange, musty, dusty, lemon candy.

T - Less Brett in the middle, but very noticeable in the finish. Grassy, orange, grainy, dusty, grain husks. Brett was balanced well.

M - Strong carbonation, dry finish, medium to full body.

O/D - Bredd didn't take this over, and that's what I enjoyed about it. It was well integrated with the rest of the flavours. A nice saison with plenty of complexity and no alcohol to speak of.

Shared a taster on-tap as past of a flight at the brewery; Logsdon Farmhouse Ales, Hood River, USA. As part of a six-week West Coast beer tour. I rate to taste, not to style. See my blog for more details: carbeers.wordpress.com

Poured two fingers of head on a cloudy, bright orange colored body.
The aroma was bright fruit: pear and apple.
The taste was a dull sour with moderate bitterness and mild pear sweet finish.
The texture was crisp with a nice fizziness.
Pretty tasty..
