Thanks Ryan for sharing this one. Comes in a very hipster "cork and string" bottle ... yup, string. Poured golden/peachy/light amber with a medium head and medium haze to it. Smells overpoweringly of flowers and phenols... some were turned off, I found it interesting but not a tasty aroma. Moving on... thatnkfully the taste was not of flowers: somewhat tart, quite phenolic and with an odd bitterness that I wasn't the biggest fan of. Fine on the mouthfeel but not as drinkable.
Also, if the ABV listed is to be trusted, hid its alcohol very well.

Bottle from a very generous Luke. Thanks! Snifter. January 2013 batch.
A: I'm surprised there isn't a cage on this. Strange. It opens with a massive pop. Transparent yellow gold with three fingers of white foam. Excellent retention. Nice looking beer.
S: Floral and grassy notes blend with a light graham cracker sweetness. There's some lemon, white grape, oak, and perfumey character.
T: More of that graham cracker sweetness with lemon, vanilla, and orange. This is pretty sweet. There's a good amount of white grape character, as well as a light spiciness.
M: Medium body with high carbonation. Soft mouthfeel.
Overall: A nice vinous Saisonesque beer. Sweeter than one would expect but still enjoyable. I just noticed the ABV is nearly 10%. Interesting. I wouldn't have guessed it was nearly that high.

Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.
Pours a murky yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, yeast, funk, white wine, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain, funk, and white wine flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of vinous notes with some tart notes clearly identifiable. Taste is a mix between some vinous notes with some tart notes and light funky yeast undertones. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very solid mix between complex Brett notes with well-balanced acidity level.
