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..

I had this beer at Original Gravity in San Jose California. Served in a 12 oz tulip glass for $9. First impression is of a cloudy, straw color with effervescent carbonation streaming up to a very thin head that does not stay around long. Citrus zest nose with a very faint hint of phenol. Tart Granny Smith apples and citrus dominate the flavor. High acidity makes for a nice dry finish, which leaves me refreshed and wanting more! I am very surprised by how much I like this beer.

Review 1500! 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/2017. Instant violent gusher upon opening. Pours extremely hazy golden orange color with a 3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon zest, orange zest, pear, pineapple, peach, apple, pepper, clove, wheat, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance, strength, and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and brett notes, with moderate malt balance. Taste of big lemon zest, orange zest, pineapple, peach, pear, apple, clove, pepper, floral, grass, wheat, and spicy yeast earthiness. Light earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, pineapple, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and Brett ester flavors; with light-moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible saison style. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity and spicy ester flavors with moderate malt balance; and extremely smooth to drink. An extremely enjoyable offering.

Thanks to whiskey for the bottle.

Appearance: Super hazed burnt gold. Massive, seriously massive bright-white head. Slowly drops to a small clumpy loose cap. Sheets of super sticky lacing. Collar has a tight-bubble structure and with the cap lasts for the duration.

Smell: Funky and slightly lactic. Some lemon zest. Light, pale malt sweetness. Grass, hay, damp and musty, but countered by a bright lemon and floral element. Powdery and mildly earthy. Ripe banana, some mango, and a soft spiciness. Yeasty with a nice compliment of Brettanomyces. Floral and fruity. So much.

Taste: Fruity funky tart. Loaded with ripe banana and mango. A bit of apple. Lemon zest and bright floral notes. Earthy and damp. Hay and grass with a huge punch of Brettanomyces. Powdery and herbal. So much yeast. Bright and complex. Fruity with a nice layer of lactic funk. Soft spiciness is peppery with some clove. Freshly mowed grass. Dirt.

Mouthfeel: Lightish body with a medium to high carbonation. Dry and clean finish. Lively.

Overall: This is the real Mo' Bretta Betta.

Hot damn son. A true American farmhouse with added Brett funk. Crazy complexity and depth, but so light and fresh. I want more of these forever.

Consumed 6/9/13

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer (and for informing me of the hype)

Appearance: Hazy, cloudy, deep orange - some gold around the edges - pours with a stupidly massive, bright white wall of foam - eventually fades to a frothy cap, literally leaves a wall of lacing - lovely

Smell: Funky, fruity, and screams "saison" (or "seizoen") - so many fruity esters, oddly juicy - a ton of light fruits, like apple and pear juice - a bunch of powdery, funky Brett - some light citrus, like tangerines - some pale malts, light grains - oddly clean, crisp, and juicy, especially for a farmhouse saison

Taste: Fresh, crisp, and juicy while simultaneously tart and funky - a potent apple, pear, and tangerine fruit quality - some nice tart notes - some funky, lightly tart, and lightly sour Brett - nice level of fruity sweetness - lightly spicy and peppery - a bizarre yet charming contrast between tart/earthy/dry and juicy/fruity/tropical - very, very interesting

Mouthfeel: Medium body, extremely smooth, excellent carbonation, nice finish

Overall: Spelling is irrelevant, please make more and give it to me

This is a fantastic saison. Like, this is the type of saison that would make someone that would make someone believe in this style. Juicy, tart, funky, and consistently interesting. Awesome stuff.
