this is absolutely incredible beer, a strong rye and wheat based saison brewed in collaboration with alesong, one of my favorites in the game right now. huge thanks to my neighbor for sharing the bottle, i had no idea this even existed, cool that cellar west is at this level now! the beer is fabulous, a hazy honey color from the bottle under over an inch of airy rising white head with great retention and a ton of lace. it smells like spicy dry earthy rye malt, cool how forward that is in a beer this strong, it must have been a significant percentage of the mash. there is a wonderfully mature brett profile here, a particular strain that i recognize, but so fully evolved as to make this unique anyway, true barnyard funkiness and mustiness, delicate fruitiness of ripe yellow peaches and white grapes, and so much support from the earthy rye and fluffy wheat, this is expertly composed! i love how developed the brett is, more than any other beer i have had from either of these breweries on their own really, and drying but interesting all the way through. lots of body here, i get the sense of size of this more from the body than from any noticeable alcohol. its full but soft, harvest timey, and just right for the complexity of the brett. a really brilliant farmhouse ale here, one that im sure will cellar well, but im all about drinking it now, an early prime. top notch beer, stoked to have been able to drink this!
