Notes: A hoppy saison brewed with wheat and aged in oak with brett.

This batch was aged for over three months in our foudre with brettanomyces and then dry hopped. Refermented in the bottle with brettanomyces.

L: Light yellow
S: Strong brett notes.
T: A rush of brett into hop notes. There is a light hint of saison at the hint with oak. This is more of a hoppy beer with saison, rather than saison with hops.
F: Light brett hoppy beer.
O: A light hoppy beer. Nothing too exciting but enjoyable.

Goldenrod body, white foam and lacing. Oak, funk, brett, fresh baked bread, black pepper, and flowers to the face! Taste follows the nose, but the funk is dry and satisfying, some beautiful citrus esters too, really hits the right notes when in the brett saison mood. Feel is dry, crisp, medium bodied, and funky. Yes please I will have another, criminally underrated

750ml bottle, no date seen, poured into a 14oz snifter glass. Enjoyed on 6.3.17, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a nice golden color, hazy and cloudy with lemon hues and a big, white, foamy head that has great retention and yields spots of lace. The aroma is pleasant, nice funky bretty character, a bit musty, strong wheat aromas with plenty of hops, green, grassy, floral, citrusy but still delicate and offering some nice fruit esters. The flavors are nice, hoppy for sure with a more earthy expression, a hint of pine, dirty and grassy with strong bretty funk, light fruitiness and hearty wheat. The mouthfeel is lively, coating, bubbly medium body with a more bitter and dry finish.

Verdict: A good hoppy saison from Holy Mountain. This reminds me a lot of Dorothy from Hill Farmstead. Nice expression of Brett complimented with fruity and grassy hops. A great beer for summer.

750 ml bottle from the brewery. Aroma is bretty, dusty, lemon rind. Pours hazy golden with a thick long sustaining off white champagne like head. Taste is really dry with a lightly bitter hoppy character. Extremely foamy champagne like mouthfeel. Quality.

On tap at The Beermongers.

A clear straw yellow with a dense, off-white head with good retention and lacing, this looks good. The nose is super rustic, grainy, moderately spicy and honey with plenty of phenols. Grainy and straw-like. The palate is grainy, phenolic, earthy with moderate hop bitterness, with citrus, lemon zest, mildly floral honey. This is really really spicy. Drying finish, grainy, rustic and phenolic. Solid.

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high white head that gradually died down but has excellent retention properties, consistently leaving a short head and lots of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of yeast and brett funk are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, but isn't as funky as I would have expected as they seem to be diminished a bit by the underlying malts. There are also some hints of oak and peppery spices.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This saison isn't as dry and spicy compared to other beers in the style but is rather easy to drink and has some refreshing properties.

Poured with a large long lasting head.
Very hoppy for a saison, with bitter finish.

Appeareance: Pours with a very imressive head capping the cloudy golden liquid; the head fades somewhat quickly though there are plenty of strands left behind

Smell: Bready and funky, with a lemon aspect; the hops add a bitter element to the aroma

Taste: Funk and hop tones jut forward and build, with a lemony tone; peppery, with a spicy rye character, in the middle; the finish is a return to the start, with the funk and the hops battling it out to a draw

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Saison, Brett and hops equal quite a combination; I wouldn't drink this every day but it is an interesting combination that reminds me of some of Crooked Stave's efforts in this regard

Thanks, HIGHPA, for the opportunity
