Dec 2009 Bottle ~ Into a tulip
Appearance- pours a hazy orange/red with a small fizzy white head. A little lacing.
Smell- Funk, earthy, grassy, light fruit, and noticable brett.
Taste- Nice complex taste, the saisons notes hit you first, sort of funky, some grass and hay. Leading into the more fruity notes, picked up a lot of peach, apricot, grape, and green apple. A tad tart. Subtle wood from the barrels. The brett realy makes itself known on the finish. Finishes dry and pretty clean.
Mouthfeel- medium body, lower sided carbonation. Dry.
Overall- A nice wild ale, with some depth and complexity to the flavor. Expensive yes, but worth trying atleast once.

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Dated October 2013. Cork hit the ceiling, but no gushing.
A: Amber/rose-colored body with good clarity. Scant white head that rapidly disappears. Light lacing.
S: Light brett with vinous quality. Grapes and more subdued stone fruit. Mild earth.
T: Tart initially with a dry, even-handed Brett character shortly thereafter. There is the presence of red wine and associated tannins. Mostly dry finish. Lightly hopped. Alcohol presence is average for the ABV. Tartness lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Light-to-moderate carbonation with a fairly light body. Open on the palate.
O: Solid brew, if a bit less impressive than expected. Probably should have sat on this one a bit longer. I was hoping for a bit more complexity, but fans of wine barrel aging and brettanomyces will enjoy this.
