A-Pours a murky pale orange with a great top. Puffy head is quite white and stingy with its lacing.

S-Funky and bretty of course. I get a lingering note of rotten, wet wood (which is actually quite awesome). Rotty fruits and nature's gift of buzzing yeast.

T-That wet, rotted wood note is still there as it complements 'ripe to the point of rotten' fruits. Brett is well proportioned here; sometimes the strain lends too much intensity. I find that in this brew it lends more uniqueness than intensity. Very complex.

M-Surprised by the ABV. The never ending complexity forces my next sip. Tingly feel with a lingering funky kick.

O/D-Really cool. I didn't love it but I'm pretty sure I haven't had many like it. Would love to try their Peche 'n Brett.

From 04/27/13 notes. Big thanks to nugganooch for sending this out to me; thanks Dane! 750ml bottle.

a - Pours a hazy orange-golden color with two fingers plus of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Loads of lacing and retention.

s - Smells of brett, lightly soured pears and fruity malts, hay, spice, pepper, yeast, apples, citrus, and floral hops. Loads of brett; really awesome nose.

t - Tastes of a ton of brett again, citrus, apples, pears, tropical fruits, grapes, fruity malts, sourness, hay, earthy notes, herbal and floral notes. Not as sour as the nose but really nice. Really like it.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink, no alcohol present at all. Creamy and smooth; awesome body.

o - Overall I thought this was a fantastic saison. I love brett and this one has tons of it. I also like my saison's a little more fruity vs. spicy, and that is how I found this one. Easy to drink; really makes me want to try their Peche n Brett now.

Served on tap into a snifter

A- Poured a very bright and hazy golden color with a white soapy head that left splashy lace. Love the color on this beer.

S- Some funky brett character, lemon, yeasty esters, pineapple, and green apple in the aroma. Pretty aromatic with strong fruity notes and some nice funk

T- Big brett character, yeasty notes, pineapple, green apple, peach, and lemon notes. Some light peppery notes

M- Fairly dry, medium body, soft carbonation, and quite smooth

O- Nice funky notes from the brett and tartness, but not an overwhelmingly sour beer at all. Bursting with fresh fruit flavors. This is a really nice belgian brett beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A: Gushed all over the counter, Lots of foam that lasted for several minutes. But its a nice cloudy orange color.
S: Like Brett, some minor pear notes, sourness with a bunch of farmhouse zest.
T: Like combining a Saison and a sour into one bottle and shaking them with a drop of pear juice. Quite good.
O: Great, really cool interesting brew.

Bottled 11/12:

Glowing honey gold body cluttered with streams of tiny beading. A massive, swelling white rocky head fills the glass before forming layer after layer of perfect lace.

Oh my... such a bright smelling beer. Crisp pale fruit with funky yeast and a honey kind of sweetness. Dry with white pepper and maybe some clove or wheat. Super clean. Smells fantastic.

More aggressive on the palate with an apparent alcohol presence. Pear, white grape, plenty of funk that plays well with the rest of the beer. Very dry, very clean.

This stuff is delicious.

750 ml split with a few friends, poured into a NEBCO tulip.

Appearance is a cloudy golden color with a couple fingers of a bright white head. Its` nose has banana, funk, grains, white pepper and lemon. Sipping on this farmhouse & I taste apricots, belgian yeast, brett, more lemon and candied sugar. Mmm, this tastes pretty damn good. Mouthfeel is medium with great carbonation. It was a treat to try this beer, it was very good overall. I most certainly recommend picking it up or trying it if you are given the opportunity.

750 ml bottle into a HF wine glass Bottle No. 14, 581. Best Before: 06/2017. HUGE gush over upon opening, took a few minutes to calm it down and collect all the foam.

A - Obviously the beer got mixed up due to the gush. Pours a hazy peach color, huge billowing mound of dirty white foam with some brown tints. Pretty aggressive looking but awfully lively.

S - One of the most enjoyable saison aromas. Earthy brett funk, sweet pears and apples, tart lemon juice, yeast and some grass. Light on the spices which I really prefer. Its just so funky and fruity. This is excellent stuff.

T - Again with the brett funk and the sweet pear and apple juices. Pretty yeasty. A touch of grass and an absence of the usual spices and peppercorns typical to the style. Tart and delicious. The beer is medium bodied and creamy but with a dry and bretty finish. Rather complex and stupidly delicious. The 8% abv is not even noticeable.

O - The best American made saison I have ever had, I'd even go so far as to say its better than the Hill Farmstead offerings. Its simple and clean with plenty of brett and fruit juice overtones. This has sat for weeks and even still it exploded upon opening. Getting over that I adore this beer.
