look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Purchased at Burial Brewery and enjoyed years later.

Look - peach colored, hazy, frothy head

Smell - champagne, yeast, grapes, pez candy (the sweet flavors disappeared as it warmed up)

Taste - sour champagne, biscuits, tart apricot

Feel - crisp, acidic

Overall- I don’t know if a Saison Brett is technically a sour, but this may be one of the only sours I’ve liked. Perfect for any meal you’d have a good champagne. I kept a bottle in the cellar for years and finally enjoyed on 8/28/20 with a damn fine pizza on a cool summer night while waiting for a storm to come in.

750mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 16.99. No bottling date but released Q3 2017 (Enjoyed 11/2/17). Served in a Burial snifter.

Pours a hazy straw amber with two full fingers of white head. That pale, dense foam slowly settles, leaving a modest blanket, wide belt and some broad swaths of lace.

Brett and woodsy red wine are immediately apparent in the nose. Hay, vague honey, flower petals and faint earth. Wet wood, Brett and wine remain constants in the background.

The flavor kicks off a little sharper than the nose foreshadowed. Red wine, tangy Brett, earthy old hay, pineapple husks, wet oak, a hint of burnt flowers and some vague honey.

Medium full feel with fairly light carbonation. Brett and wine-soaked oak continue to shine in the aftertaste.

I'm not familiar with Verzet but this collaboration does nothing to diminish my high opinion of both Burial and Three Taverns. The Field Has Eyes is a satisfying take on a style that I don't typically pursue. I kind of wish I'd grabbed a second of these rather pricey bottles to allow the Brett to run its course.

4.27/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours with a huge head, the full three, with the cloudy amber liquid underneath; excellent retention with clumpy lacing

Smell: Horseblanket funk, green apples, red wine grapes hay, spicy rye and tart wheat tones

Taste: Green apple and red wine grape tones forward, with horseblanket funk building, through the middle; spicy and wheaty, after the swallow, with an herbal finish

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high carbonation

Overall: A lot of interesting elements to this beer; a worthy beer for Bretty Saison fans

Quite orange with a fluffy white head. Smells like apples, funk, and sweet malt. The taste is amazing. Apples, grapes, funk, malt sweetness. Great mouth feel. I really like this one.
