Shared bottle.
Look: Light golden body oz hazy with a very good head.
There's a load of citrus in the nose but the flavor is more complex and less fruity.

500ml bottle in Duvel tulip
Bought in Asheville in Jan 2015 and in the fridge since then.

A: Crystal clear golden color with a white head that never quite disappears.
S: When first poured, not a lot going on. As it warms it gets a little "sweeter" and more "Belgian"
T: Belgian yeast, a hint of malt sweetness, a little bit of hop flavor, no obvious Brett.
M: Too rich/creamy for a saison, comes across as a Belgian Pale Ale, but the hops don't quite fit that either.
O: An odd beer, not really a saison, but definitely a Belgian influenced beer. Somewhat disappointing that Brett did not make an obvious appearance. A good beer, but not at all what I was expecting given the label (Brett Saison), comes across as more like a Belgian Strong Pale than a saison. Would not buy again, but would happily drink if someone else was buying :)

Very fine beer, surprised at the 85 rating - I thought it was more in the 88-90 range, but that's the beauty of opinion. Pours a golden color with 1/2" head on top. The smell is strong, sour and much more intimidating than the actual taste. Taste-wise, it is slightly sour (I assume because of the brett style) and has hints of tropical fruit. Excellent beer if you are looking for something a little off the beaten path.
