750ml bottle into tulip. Best by 03/2018.
A: Opened cold out of fridge to avoid inevitable gushing. I still had the crack the cap very slowly – this beer is volatile. Anyways, this beer pours a cloudy burnt amber color with a huge, frothy, active, and fluffy, cream colored head that, despite a slow pour, still foamed up and filled the glass. Huge chunks of rocky lace were left down the glass as the head eventually faded.
S: I get tons of brett on the nose, with scents of stone fruits (peach/apricot), straw/hay, and a touch of tart kiwi, and golden delicious apples. The oak is right there as well with hints of vanilla and woody spice. This beer smells amazing.
T: Brett flavors from the nose, mild spice, black pepper, woody oak, and golden fruits. Juicy overall. There are notes of wheat, earthy hops, and very mild savory smoke in the finish, and the aftertaste is dry, slightly bitter, earthy, and just a tad funky.
M: Medium-full body, greasy and slick mouthfeel with a drying finish (but not a desert), and soft and fluffy carbonation. Drinks well.
O: Insane nose and flavor. The brett and the oak mix expertly well together. Complex and quaffable.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.
Decent fluffy fizzy head fades semi slowly with tons of soapy lacing murky orange reddish color.
Nose some wild Brett funk, floral funk, fruity stone fruit with peach, little pear too, little tropical fruit Brett.
Trade more funky Brett, very funky, yeasty note, little Brett B funk, into big Brett c tropical fruit, little stone fruit, etc. Then quickly turns to straw, literally and figuratively, weird stale like, old fruit, straw and grassy notes, and bitterness. Finish brings a bit more peach and stone fruit, little grassy, but missing a lot. Little oak tannins and barrel notes.
Mouth is med to lighter bod, lots of carb.
Overall starts great then fades quickly, a bit of a let down because of that.

Shared with JLindros and Threelions.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a clear honey hue with a one finger head that leaves nice lacing. Very good, though it exploded.
S - Aromas of light pear, stone fruit, light funk, good brett c notes, light tropical.
T - Taste is awesome at first with nice typical brett tropical notes and then hay and straw, rather odd. Really would like more tropical notes, saison pear isn't bad.
M - Mouthfeel is very bubbly and clean, alcohol hidden nicely.
O - Overall this beer was a bit confusing, nose and Mouthfeel are awesome but I think the oak barrel kind of hinders this, not digging the tannins.
