look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Long lasting head. Hazy. Pilsner malty, bitter, peppery, touch of clove, phenolic aroma and some flavor. Tasty, but slight brett flavors lean toward pepper/sandpaper rather than refreshing slightly sourness. Full bodied, yet pretty dry for this alcohol level. Dangerously drinkable, but I'm a bit disappointed after seeing scores well above 90.

750ml bottle poured into tulip.

Straw yellow with beautiful off-white three-finger head.

When I pulled the cork out, immediately I was hit with major skunkiness. Once I poured it into my tulip, the smell rounded out into an interesting blend of skunk and the normal funky yeast smell.

Taste begins with fruity, citrus notes accompanied by the funky backdrop throughout. The malt kicks in near the end, which was beautiful.

Creamy mouthfeel, great blend of carbonation and smoothness.

Overall, a wonderful saison, and the one that most likely comes closest to the ideal in terms of style. Definitely one I would enjoy again throughout the summer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A straw colored hazy yellow, a bit cloudy. Thick white head that never dissipates past a quarter finger head that clings to the glass in sheets that slide slowly back into the beer

The smell is a grassy funk, not the farm but definitely out in the country, a pastural lemon scent. The smell pours out of the bottle after the cork is pulled and fills the room, literally.

A good astringent citrus. I get a hint of spicyness. The alcohol is not there, it could pass for a juice.

The mouth is a sticky wet bit oh happiness, the carbonation is high and it takes a bit away for me.

Overall the taste left me wanting more. The smell set the stage for something spectacular and it just wasn't all there, it was very good but I smelled something great. my beagle came trotting out of the other room looking for where the smell was coming from. I could open this and just smell it . I'll be buying some more and let it set for a while.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A:Light straw yellow wit a small white head that clings to the glass.

S: Some floral notes with a bit of grass and honey.

T: A very colplex beer with lots of spice and floral parts. Finish is long and a bit sweet.

M: Full bodied

O: A very complex beer that every sip can impart different tastes as it warms. Finish is long and has a bit of grasseness to it. Great spring time beer

1.73/5  rDev -58.6%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

A: light, straw color with a large white head.

S: grassy, skunky aroma.

T: same grassy-skunkiness, but also a bit of astringency; some spice and herbal flavor along with some distinct maltiness.

M: fairly full bodied while having the potential for being refreshing.

O: if somebody didn't tell me what this was, I would figure it a typical, low-level European lager. There is nothing special about this beer to me, and I pick up nothing from the Brett I've heard about in this beer (except maybe the head). Really a huge disappointment, and definitely not worth the 12$ for the 750ml.
