Notes/Commercial Description:
Our organic Oak Aged Bretta is made with our Seizoen Bretta that is aged for a period of time to develop the wood aged character in the beer. Oak Tannins, vanilla notes and subtle smoky spiciness soften and mellow this beer over time.

The aged unfiltered beer is refermented and carbonated in the bottle with select yeast strains to provide added dryness and complexity, then sealed with beeswax for additional aging. Store bottles upright in a cool dark place and enjoy for many years in a proper glass.

Pour is copper toned amber, hazy, with an off white thick head. Nose is stingy brett, lemon and leather dominate with notes of citrus. Taste has some malt notes, lighter body and nicely carbonated. Oak is again faint if present, strong Brett and a touch of sweet malt. Strong leather and a fair bit of lemon with a lighter citrus note. Biting finish, semi dry, a bit sweet of malt.

hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of tart lemon, biscuit, bread, nice cracker with hints of spice, yeast, nice grassy notes with a touch of tart and funky basement. Taste is a mix of tart, funky notes, hints of grass, bread, hints of lemon, oak and slight vanilla, touch of earth, finishing bitter, dry, slight tart fruit.

I have been on the fence about when the right time to open this bottle was. Today was the day.

Color was a little more brown than I expected from being a saison, but the bone-white head really contrasted nicely.

Aroma just explodes out of my wine glass. Prominent notes of pear, faint pineapple and oranges meld nicely with the funk from the Brett and time spent in the barrel. Perfect representation of a barrel-aged saison.

Flavor is next to perfect. Immediately it jumps right to the crisp carbonation and 'airy' mouthfeel. It could have been a little funkier, but I have no doubt that if I had sat on this for another year, it would have been just right. Dry characteristics of pear and apple skin, but with just enough sweetness from all the fruit notes that it was quite balanced.

I took this bottle to the face in no time. It's drinkability was that high.

Bottle: Poured an hazy amber color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of funky Bretty notes with some light rustic malt notes with some floral hay notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by some Bretty notes with light barnyard notes, some hay with some rustic malt notes. Oak is not that easily identifiable but kinds of smoothed out the aftertaste. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very well brewed Saison with a good level of drinkability and some good complexity.

This was fantastic. Seriously fantastic.

Pours a hazy gold-amber in color. Aroma has a bit of a funky hay character on it with Brett dominating yet delicate. The flavor is funky Bretty-fruit, a barnyard of wet hay and crisp pears, white grape, peppercorns and orange blossoms. Clean, bright and incredible.
