A: Cloudy golden yellow with aggressive, puffy head.

S: Straw, grass, apricot, peach, slight pepper and other spicy, and complex yeast smells including, of course, brett! Quite wonderful and nice balance of different notes.

T: Much of the same - somewhat malty saison with brett character breaking through after a couple moments, leading into a mossy, earthy, barn-straw character with orange fruits and light pepper.

M: Not terribly crisp I suppose but very nice an suitable for what's going on. Ends fairly dry and oaked.

O: Super happy with this beer and I had high expectations. I think the other three bottles will get spaced out over the next 18 - 24 months to see how it develops.

Tasted from 750mL bottle

A — Pours a light and somewhat hazy pale yellow color. There is a puffy light white colored head that forms, and leaves behind greatly consistent and sticky lacing.

S — Smells of fresh lemon rind and juice, lightly limey notes as well, bit of a brett presence as it is funky and barn yardy.

T — Brett predominately, funky, airy, bright and lightly tart, light green apple flavor to it.

M — Light and airy, medium bodied, long and lingering finish.

O — Nice overall, big fresh brett notes, very nice.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured tulip a ways back (from notes) thanks Rutager for the want

A 4.5 clear golden yellow with just a hue of salmon, bubbles are tiny fast and everywhere, two fingers of foam leaves partial rings deep down the glass, foam to the bottom, sexy looking beer

S nice yeast profile coming out, faint cherry, orange peel, candied pineapple, apricot, wet grass and dried hay, a little wood and vanilla, some spice and earthy tones I cant place, lots going on in this one, smells great

T brett comes out a little more but there's a long time before the yeast takes over this bottle, more earth spice and less fruity notes, just a little barrel but it works, not as intense as the nose but still tastes great

M medium bodied, bubbles thick it up, a little slick yet somehow has some tannin going on to if that makes any sense, earthy yeast and candied pineapple linger, no complaints here

O one of those beer that I want several bottles to drink at different ages, this one has 6ish months and I think its doing great but who know once the brett firmly in charge

If my interest in 4 winds wasn't sparked before it defiantly is now, from the few I've had all have been great, ISO 4 Winds!!!
