Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.

The beer is orange and hazy with a quarter inch of white head. The aroma brings lemon rind, orange peel, grass, floral hops, citrus. Smells nice. The flavor imparts orange citrus, floral hops, a touch of wild yeast. Medium bodied with a slightly bitter finish. Lingering floral hops.

Pours a nice unfiltered golden orange with a thick cream colored head. The smell is very bretty (in a good way) without the vinegar hints of a more traditional sour. Taste is a great balance of malt, brett and a hint of citrus and hops at the end. Purchased at Whole Foods in Pasadena, CA.

Bottle No. SB 8505; Best By 01/2017.

Hazy buckwheat honey color. Perfect-looking meringue head of eggy and frothy density. Marvelous lacing. My pour has some yeast cake chunks on the bottom of the glass and stuck to the top of the foam.

Tart and moldy aromas with bright solvent-y brett nuances. Farmhouse nuttiness, tart lemon rind, and light peppery spices. Great tartness in a saison.

Bright and tart and hugely brett-y. White pepper, lemon pith, sour peach, bleu cheese, crabapple, and maybe a scarce element of the pear juice that was added. Savory funk and citric acidity meet flamboyant saison yeast strains and piquant peppery spices. A bit cedary, adding to the brightness. The most delicious saison that I can recall drinking, to-date.

Nice spicy sting in the finish burns a bit with the acidity, which is at a lovely levels. Carbonation is even and spritzy. I can't afford to test the drinkability by gulping this. Must be savored.

Opening this bottle up made my night. Time to revisit Fantome to see which is the best of the bunch.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle SB9985, best by 2/2017. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Giant head and excellent retention. Hazy orange body. Nice lacing as it settles down.

Smell - Bretty and a little fruity. Grainy malts back there, but mostly brett.

Taste - Very bretty again. Strong wine fruitiness. Very light grains and no bitterness in the finish at all.

Mouthfeel - Very dry and well carbonated. Nice and light.

Overall - Good. Well bretted, but uncomplex. Comes out tasting like almost nothing but brett, as many of these do, but it's nice all the same.

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

Bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.

Pour: Mostly clear orange body with a towering three finger, thick off white head. Head leaves superb lacing, and hangs around for a little while.

Smell: Earthy brett up front, followed by a deep raw dough. Some pears and a light lemon pith. White pepper.

Taste: Follows the nose with a lot of earthy brett, some doughy bread, a light yeasty spice. Some subdued lemon and pears. A decent amount of white pepper sans spice on the finish, along with more brett.

Mouthfeel: Not utterly drinkable nor refreshing. The earthiness from the brett on the taste translates to a robust mouthfeel. Remains juicy at points, but more medium heavy than anything else. No dryness to speak of.

Overall: A brett lovers saison. More robust than Saison Brett. If this makes sense, this saison was made for the fall or winter in my opinion. Great stuff.

Pour was a slight gusher. Murky brownish gold, massive thick head that stuck to everything.

Loads of fruit. Very tropical with a hint of funk.

Very fruity. Tropical and domestic fruits. Lots of Apple and pear with grape. Light spice and pale funky malt. A hint of tartness.

Moderate carbonation, lots of life.

This was seriously good, one of the better saisons I have had.
