22 ounce bottle - $13.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clouded, darkish amber body with a lofty, airy crest of whitish suds.

Smell: Honeyish, faintly toasty malts with the most prominent note additions being mint leaf, melon juice, something akin to pickled ginger, citric tropical fruit, a splash of Orangina, peppery spices, wrapped in phenols and a noted mustiness.

Taste: Some slightly sweet honey stretched over dry, day-old toasted biscuit tops. The sweetness quickly recedes. Then, the remaining flavors don't simply unfold leisurely, they come rushing in all at once: spearmint, melon juice, citrus blossoms, grapefruit, white pepper, faux ginger, sandalwood, cantaloupe, clean sweat, With each sip, gulp, whatever, the flavors just come pouring in like idiots shoppers streaming into a Wal-Mart on Black Friday -- ah, Christ, somebody just trampled the melons and kept on running to the toy aisle! Dry, phenolic finish. Gets a bit tangier, citric, and gingeresque as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. High carbonation, but it soon tapers off.

Overall: While not nearly good enough for me to change my saison allegiance, it's still a solid, brett-infused saison, albeit a bit tough on the ole wallet.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a nice white head. Citrusy nose with some straw, pineapple, light melon, and a pleasant dryness. A hint of spice, some bready malt, and as it sits, lemon drop candies. The flavor is a bit more bread/malt forward. Some citrus peel, straw, lemon, yeast, and light spice. A hint of tropical fruit and dry on the finish. Really nice and easy drinking.

Bomber bottle, purchased in Peeksklill, NY $11.99. "Best Before 2015" on the label

Pours clouded lighter tangarine/amber/golden, under an intiially huge med. khaki head, that slowly fades to a thicker foam, gauzy sheets of fine lacing.

Lemon, honey and pepper on the nose.

Dry, flavorful, over loaded with citric juices, lime and loads of pepper. Carbonation on the high side. Crisp, moderatly tart and bright. Brett showing nicely, with some light funk, but mostly crisply and with more puckeringly dry/citric character.

Lovely beer, go get some

GUSHER! For a long time after I opened my first Biscotti Break (which was a disaster of volcanic gushering), I opened all my Evil Twin (and a few other breweries like Hof Dormaal) beers in the kitchen sink. Then a long period of well behaved ale made me lower my guard. This bottle did not shoot into the air, but had a ferocity of flow that was amazing. In a quick few seconds to run to the sink, I lost 2/3s of the bottle. Eventually:
Poured into a Nostradamus flute, pouring a very hazy, almost opaque caramel amber with a large (but only 2% of the total) white head that had good retention and lacing. Pleasant aroma of bready malt, light saison yeast, stone and citrus fruit, nice. Flavor is Brett, saison yeast, much more subdued stone and citrus fruit. Finishes dry and Bretty with a long aftertaste of the wild yeast, citrus rind and light bittering hops. Light bodied with very active carbonation. A classic Brett inspired saison with an above average, moderately complex fruit component. The wild yeast influence was a bit beyond my preference, but well within the style expectations. A good deal for the price in a 22oz, bomber, perhaps not so much for 7 ounces of actual saison in the glass. My floor was sticky and drunk all night. Back to opening beer in my sink….

Poured a cloudy, orange body with one finger head and minimal lace. Bitter, slightly citric hopped aroma balances with touches of funk, spice and sweet malts. Smooth, light body that while sharp, almost sour at times, has a pumpkin(?) and honey sweetness in it that makes it easy to drink while remaining funky.

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a light orange with large white head. Foamy and fizzy, OK retention.

S: Definite Brett, leather, fermented orange marmalade.

T: Orange bubblegum with some Brett funk, some stone fruit, apple at times. A lot going on.

M: Lightly sour. Frothy, soft carbonation, medium-bodied. Fairly astringent.

O: A good and interesting saison, I enjoyed trying it. Price is a problem for sure, but fans of weird funky Bretty beers should like this.

650ml bottle poured into tulip 7/9/13

A slight gush upon opening but I got it in the glass, hazy pale orange liquid with plenty of bubbles, a big fluffy foam sits around for ages slowly falling to a thick film leaving a few partial rings of lace

S peppery spice, bubblegum, funk, clove, lemon peel, herbal notes, dry cereal, and I swear I get a hint of smoke but I might be crazy, smells pretty bad ass

T more lemon rind and cereals, a hint of booze and orange marmalade, still has what the nose was offering but not quite the intensity but still great stuff

M medium bodied, almost foamy, spicy rind lingers with a little funk

O a nice funky saison, smells the highlight but not lacking anywhere, something I'd drink again as a nice treat

I should've drank this when the sun was shining but even on a rainy evening its hitting the spot. I like a little funk to go with the style and this one delivers

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted a fair amount of time. Very good lacing.

S: Typically sweet and astringent saison aroma: Spices, yeast, and malt.

T: Tasted of spices (cloves, pepper), Belgian yeast, and some malt. Had that medicinal quality common to saisons. A pretty balanced and focused flavor.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, enjoyable, and drinkable beer.

I had this on-tap at The Sidecar in Philadelphia.

Appearance is a golden color, a tad murky. Its` nose contains banana, yeast, malts and pepper. Taking a sip of this saison and I taste bubblegum, more of the yeast, along with fruit and some hops. A very nice tasting beer, one of the few beers that I have sampled from ET. Mouthfeel is medium, a dry, slightly sweet finish to it. For those who appreciate a nice saison, check this one out.
