Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Bottle No. 2832, Best by Dec 2015.

A real nicey peachy orange colored body. quite opaque and solid colored. The beer is topped with a bright white creamy three finger head and, whipped up retention with rings of lace and clumping. Not much noticeable carbonation through this unfiltered body.

Nose is interesting. A good hint of peppery brett, and a strange almost slight goat cheese like aroma at first. Exploring give much more fruit qualities of the pear, and peach and nectarine stone like fruit quality as well.

Palate brings a good classic saison character. Big farmhouse dryness and brett pepper in the mid palate. Fruit angle washes clean but not with much distinction on the finish. Mouthfeel is pretty solid and standard, with minimal distracting carbonation. Small hints of juiced fruit punch like character.

It's similar to the Bretta but it's fruit character seems much more played down. Pretty solid saison either way regardless.

750ml bottle best by 1/2017

Pours a hazy pale straw color with creamy white head. Smells like a farmhouse ale - bright, earthy, citrus but also with a distinct honey like sweetness. The nose is very fruity - apple juice, pear, and tropical fruit.

The fruit which brings a hint of sweetness is surrounded by a pleasant earthy and citrusy bitterness. The sweetness starts in the nose and the finish is fairly dry. There is a slight underlying tartness but it is not sour.

Mouthfeel is light bodied yet creamy. The carbonation is on the lighter side.

Clean and refreshing yet very flavorful and interesting. Very nice take on a saison!

Pours a straw color gold. Sunshine and shining as if you had put the sun in the glass. Fat head of sticky white foam that leaves lace. Nose is lovely. Lemon grass, lemon peel, stone fruit like mango, a bit of yeasty funk but not too much and a woody airy lightness. There is honey on this nose and it smells like when the honey turns solid int he jar. Sugary but still full. Floral like flower petals. sweet and not bitter. Taste is lovely. It has the underpinnings of sour on an explosion of fruit. Stone fruit, apple, pear, lemon. Tart but mysteriously so. Lightly woody yeast like sweet fresh air. If you had stepped outside your door to a meadow that took up your entire field of vision ti would smell like this beer. Drinks with champagne dryness, a perfect light and ticklish carbonation, a soft malt with bread, cracker and honey. A fruitiness that is endless and a bit of sweet grass to finish this one dry and with room for plenty of hearty food. The floral on this one is brilliant and so is the tartness that brings you to the edge of your palate and then backs off so that you stay satisfied and not regretful.

This beer will grace your table with a not so subtle perfection. Why should it be modest? Grilled meats? Fried chicken? Meat and cheese platter? crusty bread and greens? The honey in this one is inescapable. It teeters decadently between soft bread and crisp cracker but it has honey and it stimulates the senses. Finishes dry and with a residual taste of honey and that light soft malt. Just damn pretty is what it is. It is more than the sum of it's parts. It evolves in the glass to be a welcome bit of joy in a world that goes on way too long like this review.

Cloudy yellow, obvious wheat, white puffy head.

Smells grainy and spicy, rustic.

Surprised I can place the pear juice. Bready, hardly floral, sorta sweet, definitely earthy and spicy, possibly coriander and pepper. Tartness isn't a bother. Delightful summer beer.

Crisp and dry.
