4.24/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
750mL into tulip. all by myself. 2013 vintage, best by 03-02-2015.
A: slightly hazy. head is voluminous, the carb is vivacious. cant pour more than two inches without the foam becoming unmanageable. great retention and lacing.
S: a mild sweetness and a little bit of black pepper. a bit of barnyard, but just a touch. smells like a rustic saison without being aged a touch.
T: dry. very dry. the brett has taken hold but not fully. a little bit of barn flavor, but it is minor. would love to have another bottle of this that I could age for a few years. im sure the brett would really take hold and push this brew in another direction. however since I am reviewing what is in front of me.... a little bit of chewy grain. more and more wheat as it warms. more of tank 7 comes out as well. however the brett takes the base brew and dries it out to the point where the medium/full body turns very medium.
M: carb is rich as I expected. medium bodied.
D: really wish I aged this one a bit longer. however since I do not have this luxury I have to enjoy this brew in front of me, which is not hard to do. a very drinkable and refreshing saison. certainly grab some if you can. however with the price tag and limited nature of the brew I highly recommend a bottle of helios or another bretty saison that is more available. while tasty, I think the reserved nature of this brew helps bode high regards.
