Poured from the last bottle of the original release into a trusty goblet.
A - Color of honey, sunflower, golden yellow. Pillowing cumulus cap supported by kinetic even nervous carbonation.
S - Dusty, apricot, that Brett funk is deftly applied, rising off the glass hints of chalk, white peach skin, and a touch of lemon grass, warm honey and green tea.
T - The honey element is dominant, tea leaves, and ripe peach. The funk transfers to the palate in the form of sourdough toast, quite lovely
M - Medium in body, the surfaces are all coated with a touch of oiliness. Carbonation is strong but gentle, nudging the offering off the tongue. A long sweet linger is delightful.
O - I picked this up 2 years ago, had one fresh, so glad to have kept this, the impact was positive. A fine saison in the fall flavor category. Lots of ripe fruit character, and so delicately applied Brett..
Well crafted.

Aged bottle from spring 2015 til fall 2016.

Bottle popped itself open before I even got the wire cap cover off the cork. Bottle fizzed and foamed over for several minutes before I poured off my first sampling.

Thick white sticky head of foam, as you might expect based on the carbonation levels noted above. Once allowed to warm up a bit and calm down on the counter, the head resides to a thin film of head across the beer's surface.

Initially, the beer had an unpleasant medicinal, astringent aroma and taste that was a bit off-putting, but after allowing the beer to warm up, it completely transforms. A bright funky aroma including the essence of the brett yeast pops out nicely, and the taste follows with a nice citrusy tartness to round out the funky farmhouse experience.

The carbonation levels are excellent, providing a bright fizzy frothy mouth feel that completes the overall experience.

Overall: A great brew, and one I'm glad I waited to pop open.

Very dry. The Brett is very strong. Funk, cherry, some light fruit. Reminds me of Orval. Good.

Over carbonated...blew the cork once the cage was loosened. Taste was too earthy for me.
