look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Straw, lemony, cloudy with lots of carbonation, topped with 1 finger of off white head.

Smells of Brett, lemon, lemon zest, phenols and fruitiness. Very Belgian smell to it.

Brett all over, only a hint of sweetness, a fair amount of tartness. Lemon and lemon zest, and slightly puckering bitterness. The fruitiness and Belgian yeast qualities all come through on the palate.

Medium body, slightly gelatinous, jammy, with champagne like carbonation. Finishes dry and tannic.

Excellent brew. The best Brett bolstered brew I've ever had from the USA, now second in my book to Orval. Got in California near Sacramento, in Davis Whole Foods. Very enjoyable and complex brew. Drank in Chiang Mai, Nov 29th, 2016.

Poured a burnt orange color with just under two fingers worth of bubbly white head that disappears quickly. The nose has some lemon upfront with some funk from the brett. The taste is a little more earthy and spicy than the nose. You definitely get the brett in the flavor as well. The feel is medium with a good amount of carbonation, very effervescent. This is an outstanding saison! The flavor has a lot of complexity and the nose is wonderful.

750mL bottle into a tulip
Best before: 03/2019 (thus I believe 2014 vintage)


A: Opens up as an absolute gusher (even though it has been resting undisturbed for several weeks). Gushes for close to 10min would be my guess. Once the gushing subsides, it pours a clear, dark straw yellow with a large 3 fingers width of bright white head. Leaves tons of lacing. 4.5

S: Very nice aroma. Tons of fruity esters, Brett is certainly noticeable but its not super funky (in a good way to me). Somewhat floral and subtle tart notes. I little bit of spice and the subtlest of booze. Incredible complexity. Just a fantastic nose. 4.75

T: Fruity esters, pretty big amount of spice, subtle floral notes. Funk notes are present throughout, but not dominating. A bitterness ligers along with the fruity characters at the end of each sip. 4.25

M/D: Fuller body for the style, carbonation is huge-almost over carb’d if thats possible for this style, ABV is well masked, drinkability is good. 4

O: Overall, an excellent Saison. One of the better ones I’ve had from the US. Worth seeking out if you are a fan of the style. 4.25

Small sample poured into a tulip form a bottle. A bright yellow with a small white head. Impressive Brett funk up front accompanies an extremely lemony sourness and a subtle saison yeast/belgian-spice base. An excellent beer, though perhaps a little more puckering that I would find ideal for a saison spiked with Brett.
