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

Presentation: 750ml bottle. Best by 06/2017. Served in a Dogfish Head signature glass. Bottle was a slight gusher when opened, but everything made it into the glass.

Appearance: Pours a lighter shade of orange. Very hazy. About 4 fingers of a thick off white/cream colored head and left lots of lacing.

Smell: Lemon, peppery spice, bretty funk, earth and hints of tropical fruit.

Taste: Lots of earthy brett yeast, slight bready malt, lemon, pepper, pear and pineapple juices with mild tartness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Carbonation is somewhat high, but there's still a nice softness to the mouthfeel. Finishes dry. Quite refreshing.

Overall: This was a real treat. Lots of brett character. Really refreshing and drinkable as well. One of the best saisons I've had.

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

A: Orange color that is probably close to peach flesh. Fluffy head.
S: Peach is palpable. So is the brett (unfortunately for my palate). Jolly rancher sweetness. Some mandarin.
T: Delicately sour - I would have prefered more to bring out fruit flavors.

Overall, it's decent, but I wish the peach flavor was more concentrated. In my opinion, it's a mistake to use a brett beer as a base. The flavors are just too overpowering and so less focus is left for the fruit. For a true classic in this vein, try Cantillon's Fou Foune (you might have to go to Brussels for this). Fou Foune could teach this beer some lessons - it has sharp acidity that brings out the fruit, extreme complexity, and exquisite balance. Wild yeasts all the way!!
