22oz bomber poured into a Duvel glass.
Very active fizzy carbonation at first pour, very clear golden amber (yeast firmly settled as this was stored upright in the fridge) with large white creamy head reaised, bubbles of varying sizes, retention excellent.
Sour funk (the brett I guess) immediately apparent on the nose, and it is very nice. Recalls Belgian geuezes nicely...appley fruitiness underneath, some lemon and coriander. This beer shows best after warming closer to room temp. The carbonation settles down to a mild fizziness, this is dry, somewhat sharp beer. This is a good thing, the bitter hoppiness combined with a pleasing sourness convey the tart fruit )apricot and apple) very nicely. Really comes across as an excellent saison--and actually, despite the dry sourness, is creamier than a Cantillon-style lambic...I think the fact that I am thinking about some of the best Belgins on earth indicates that this is a very good brew. I am loving the interplay between the brett sourness and funk and the cris hoppy bitterness. The finish is extremely long. Certainly one of Ommegang's best brews...very glad I found some. When I visited the brewery last autumn this brew was not available, but some months in the bottle probably were good for it. A nice amalgamation of disparate beer styles that works very well.
