11.2 ounce bottle, bottled JAN 2016, best before 2021-01-13. This bottle says 5.0% ABV. Served in a Teku, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with a couple inch frothy off-white head that stayed around for a long time. Good amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like oak, funk, apricot, wheat/grainy malt, lime and straw. The brew tastes like grainy/bready malt, funk, earthiness, straw, lime, peppery spice and some apricots. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and easty to drink with a good amount of soft carbonation. I thought this was good, now I'll have to try more of the Brekeriet brews the next time I get the chance. $5.79 a bottle.

A: Poured into a tulip to a light orange topped by a dense and rocky three finger white head which fades slowly leaving decent lacing
S: Smells of orchard fruits, a little peppery spice and a hint of funk.
T: Taste is funky and a little yeasty up front with some orchard fruits, more funk and some peppery spicy yeast notes. Swallow is more funk leaning toward barnyard, a little more orchard fruit and some peppery yeast.
M: This beer is fairly light in body and flirts with being watery. Carbonation is effervescent and slightly prickly. The beer has a slightly dry finish.
O: Overall this one is pretty decent. Not bad but not great. I would have liked to see a little more from it but what's there is pretty solid. Decent complexity but could have been better.

Pour is hazy golden amber with a moderately bubbly white head. The nose is nice, strong lemon presence with a moderate yeast undertone and light balance of peppery spice. Lightly candied sugar and citrus hop presence behind. Taste follows the nose, spicy Saison yeast, lemon, candied fruit, balances hop bitterness in back. Semi dry, well carbonated, crisp on the palate. Good stuff.
