4.8/5 rDev +14.8%
Bottled in 2008 and this beer held up extremely well. A bit of sediment and opened with a huge 'pop' but decanted clear. Great taste. Full. Amazing amount of brett noticeable. Some heat but very well attenuated. It's an experience to drink the beer at the brewery (with the toilets in the back by the cows) but you can always find perfect examples of the beer in bottles too!!

4.28/5 rDev +2.4%
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Lively golden orange body. The head overflows the glass. Eternal retention and lacing clings inside the glass.
Smell - Nice lemon zest esters. Kinda bretty, maybe? Earthy, at least. Spices that I can't pick out.
Taste - A touch less complex, but still quite nice. I'm more sure it's brett that's coming through. Pale malts and a spiciness in the back end. Funky farmhouse flavors and an earthy finish.
Mouthfeel - Incredibly drinkable for being a pretty big saison. Well carbonated.
Overall - Really superb. Complex and very drinkable.

750ml Bottle received in trade with Phyl21ca - thanks!
Appearance - Gold colour with a large size fizzy/frothy white head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes.
Smell - Cloves, breads/grains, pears/grapes/apples, vanilla
Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains, cloves, and pears/grapes/apples. There is also vanilla/coconut like flavour and a bit of a yeastiness.
Overall - An interesting high ABV saison with a good mix of flavours. The vanilla/coconut type flavour gets a little tired with a 750ml format - but still a very solid brew well worth trying and perfect for sharing.
