Pours a slightly cloudy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a massive 2.5 finger head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap.  Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.

Earthy, slightly musty aroma with some funky brett, pale malt, light fruit and a strong citrus component.  Some tangerine, papaya and blood orange along with farmhouse funk and an overwhelmingly strong brett presence. The musty yeast character overpowers the other notes making the aroma a bit one dimensional.  

Medium bodied and with strong carbonation and prominent funky brett flavor.  One dimensional with all brett and mineral flavor.  Musty funky and earthy farmhouse yeast along with very subtle citrus fruit and bready yeast character. The mouthfeel is off and there is a surprising lack of complexity.  Disappointing.

Bottle 5457, best by 3/19, bought in Portland 11/14.
A-this beer is all effervescence! It explodes into tons of white rocky head atop a golden brew. The foam has some serious staying power
S-a saison with some Brett funk. Reminds be a bit of saison DuPont.
T-the upfront earthy peppery notes is overtaken by a dirty barnyard funk that is strong
M-very dry with tons of hot bubbly zing. Lingering Brett funk finish. Some noticeable alcohol in the finish as well
O-this is a funky, super lively farmhouse ale. The Brett is overpowering. Has a nice backbone but too much funk.

I had to power through this one. Definitely the biggest disappointment from the most recent bottle share.

Um I sat on this a while. It may be a 2014 ? I thought I cellared it well but when I opened it it went off

Look hazy orange with a white head that seems to sustain pretty well

Smell- dust funk yeasty- kind of like older bread

Taste- slightly medicinal crisp and dry the Brett takes a but of a back seat. Doesn't quite get around to the tartness of say propolis.

Feel- it's. A tad syrupy, it has a heavier mouth feel like a wheat beer almost. Lingers on the going a bit and despite its champagne-ness doesn't clean up too well

Overall- I think the fact that I aged this up to maybe 4 years and perhaps not at the best conditions it has matured quite well. Because I am tasting it side by side with 2015 GABF winner propolis brewing Beltane it is not tasting as well as it could be. Would I order this again? Yes! Is it better than Propolis Not right now.

Purchased at my new spot - Tustin Liquor in Santa Ana, CA.

I'll tell you one thing, it's cleaner than a pair of my old woman's panties fresh out of the Kenmore Elite. Flavor? Yeah, a little. Not heavily pronounced, but it's there. Mouthfeel, aroma... Raul ain't impressed like Miranda Kerr in a pushup - just above average.

Peace!

Look: Slightly hazy transparent orange gold with a thick active white head. Mild activity. Smell: Lots of banana greet the nose followed by a mild clove, white grape, very mild lemongrass, mandarin oranges, hint of malt, green apple, and more banana.

Taste: Big Belgian sugar on the attack, followed by a wave of very ripe banana, slight clove, then comes a spike of white grape that fades to a slightly tart green apple note, followed by a definite Brett finish. Clove, green apple, and whole oat bread linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: At first wet on the tongue then quickly dries to a textbook Brett dry finish. Medium bodied and no hint of booze.

Overall: A nice and complex farmhouse ale. The flavor are huge and bold and dominates the palate. A definite Brett bomb for when you are craving it. Usually I like my saisons lighter and more quenching but I won't knock this ale for bringing the flavor
