750 ml bottle poured into Tired Hands glass

A- BIG gusher, reminder to never open again away from a sink, beer everywhere. Nice appearance after the carbonation settles. Hazy golden yellow/straw color, one finger frothy white head, lacing sticks to the side of the glass.
S- The aroma is very floral, i was expecting more brett, more funkiness but its very hard to pick out any funkiness in the aroma. Grassy floral notes, some pepper, very mellow overall.
T- This is a very mellow beer, nothing jumps out at you, its very well made, nice balance, grassy floral notes on the tongue just like in the aroma, some clove, slight banana, malt, slight bitterness on the backend, definitely get the yeast as it warms up.
M- Light mouthfeel, dry finish, very smooth drinking, as it swirls around your mouth and as it goes down very smooth. Well carbonated,big gusher like i said earlier though. Be careful when opening.
O- Not bad, i would of liked the brett to of stood out more, but its very well made, you can tell these guys know what there doing. Very glad i have another bottle.

One of my couple favorite beers and my favorite saison there is.

A - wonderful. Copper-gold cloudy color, billowy huge (slightly) off-white head that sticks around for a while.

S - wonderful again. It smells effervescent and summery - spritzy somewhat tart lemon, peach, hay, barnyard, a very slight touch of spicy hop. Immediately on opening a tiny hint of banana yeast, but it's gone quickly.

T - pretty much perfect. Lemony tartness but not overwhelming or dominant. The excellent summer, saison notes of grass, hay, flowers - a field. Slight spiciness to balance it out. Initially a bit of honey, pear-like sweet malt, but it finishes perfectly dry. Extremely refreshing but also complex as you could want. What an export strength saison should be, and what brett should contribute - an accent that blends in with the excellent base beer.

M - nicely dry finish, a little prickly carbonation but could be juuust a bit moreso. Again excellent.

Overall, an amazing beer. As a saison lover, this would have to be my favorite saison. Hits the notes from classic Belgian examples but adds the wonderfully fruity, tart brett accent. Well worth seeking out. Honestly don't understand why this isn't massively sought-after.

Consumed on 8/21/2013. Poured into a goblet-style glass.

Pale, glowing orange and hazy with a big white foamy head that sticks around for the whole experience. Funky aroma with musty orange, lemon zest, and damp hay. This has a very refined taste - the flavors are mild but also complex and full. Damp earth, with a nice dry finish. Super creamy in the mouth and just a little bit tart and funky. At the same time it's also amazingly light and crisp. Just a wonderfully crafted Saison. The bretta does some great stuff to the beer.
