Pour is pale golden yellow with a ton of tight white fluffy head. Nose has a good bit of grain up front with a musky bret and then strong citrusy lemon. Taste is very similar, lots of nice grains, a bit of dusty brett but not quite as musky, with a nice lemon kiss and a good bit of farmhouse yeast to it. Moderately carbonated and a dry finish with some prickly action on the back.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is pale yellow with a half inch of white head. Aromas of hay, brettanomyces, earth, grain, lemon. Herbal flavor with the aforementioned attributes. Light in body and pretty easy drinking. Nothing too exciting here, but a solid beer.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #19 of 144.

Appearance - A slow gusher. Big head atop a pale hazy body. Lasts a while. Lots of surface wisps.

Smell - Bretty. Lightly fruity. Slight lemony aroma. Lots of pale malt.

Taste - Slight acidity. Very bretty. Earthy and bitter. Pale malt.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Medium light and bitter.

Overall - Generic brett saison but it's good.

Bottle 52 of 64. Served in a tasting glass.

The beer pours a cloudy golden yellow company with a half finger of fluffy white carbonation. The smell is light and herbal. This is a very light beer with a strong brett characteristic. There isn't a sour note to be found, but lots of brett. There is a slight bitterness in the finish. There is a lot of fluffy white carbonation with an extremely dry finish. This is a pretty solid offering.
