Big thanks to Will for this one, and to Joe for it's safe passage. Amen.

Hazy lemon custard, or a dim shade of gold, there's a huge puffy cumulus cloud of foam billowing up and over the edge in a gravity defying instant, then slowly receding into the glass. Flecks and chunks slough off, coating the glass with plenty of random lacing. 4.5

When the bottle is first opened there was a vinegar aroma which had me worried, but in the glass there's no trace. Slightly bretty, dried herbs and cracked grains, with a hint of wet hay. Not especially funky or approaching rustic really, but pleasant in it's own right. 3.75

Taste is well rounded, a light tartness meets a malty fullness to the body that also lends a mild grainy sweetness. Lightly musty hay with a dry and slightly bitter aftertaste. Not overly phenolic or spicy thankfully, it's very drinkable and quenching after a long day. Overall this was a nice Brett beer, not all that rustic or funky, but pleasant tasting and drinkable. 4/4/4.25

500ml Bottle

Wil surprised me with one of these guys on my visit. Thanks, guy! Bretticent is apricot golden with minimal haziness running throughout. The foam is lively and large bubbled, growing to over two fingers in height on the pour. It instantly becomes craggy, chunky, and sticky coating the glass like super glue.

The nose is saison fruity. Bright peach opens up immediately with an herbal hoppiness. Bubblegum esters flash through occasionally. Brett adds a mellow hay like funkiness. Pale, grainy malt is forefront in the grain department but there is a wheaty twang in the back. As the beer settles the malt backbone shines but with a quick swirl the peach comes right back, green apple as well. Appetizing, if a little mild.

Peach is a little fizzy and a little sweet even, reminding me of peach ring candy, but it's short lived. This saison is grain driven with clean barley and a wheat twang. I don't get much spice from the added rye. Yeast throws off a few esters, mostly soft bubblegum, while brett adds a touch of depth with notes of hay. As this beer warms pineapple notes linger. Well rounded, nicely done.

Up front the body feels like it will be a touch thin but as it works through it becomes luxurious in it's consistency. The weight lies firmly between light and moderate but there's a full feel that I enjoy.Carbonation is lively. The finish is dry with a soft lingering bitterness.

As I said before. This beer is well rounded with a lot of welcomed flavor profiles. Yeast character, grain bill, hop additions, even the brett, though subtle, all add something to the overall enjoyment of this beer. Recommend? Yes! Thanks, Wilson!

Poured from bottle to Southern Tier Tulip

Nice straw color. Solid Belgian yeast flavor with a sweet lingering taste. Not as much Brett as I would have hoped on the tongue. Very refreshing and enjoyable though. Could drink a lot of these on a hot day.

Solid stuff.
