The mixture of rye and Brett creates Avery interesting aroma and flavor. Tart spice is the best descriptor.

Remarkable. Deep amber and clouded, with a moderate head. Sweet dates and molasses on the nose. Taste is complex, starts with a brief sweetness, popping into a tart flavor of apricots fading into mild apples with soft esters on the finish and a muted sour aftertaste. The mouthfeel is noteworthy: silken smooth, slow and deliberate in each sip. Smooth, mature, luxurious.

Tart right when it hits the tongue, finishes dry. Spicy pepper in the front with hints of banana.

Smells like a sweet champagne. Spicy, fruity, with a dry finish. The spices linger on your palate. Hints of rye upfront.

7/26/2012. 750ml bottle. Hazy orange-amber in appearance with a large, sticky head. Retention and lace formation are very nice, leaving the glass well decorated. Spicy, herbal, phenolic on the nose. Some fruity notes of tart apple and a bit of melon. Brett character is very subdued. Taking a sip, there's a persistent but restrained tartness leading to a traditionally dry finish. The tart apple shows up on the palate, too, as does some leather and a peppery sort of flavor. All this complexity is great, though it's not as quaffable as some other saisons (the high ABV contributes, too). I could see this pairing very well with some seafood, but it's great all by itself.

Theres just something about some Brett beers that reminds me of battery acid. Unfortunately this is one of them.

Wonderful hint of spice and maybe the faintest hint of tart?

I love Saisons. This is a unique spin on the style. More malt, a light sourness but still the classic saison dryness and med to light hoppiness.

Had this after picking up from Holiday Wine cellar. A great brew from Patrick and Co. Would really like to get some more of this soon.

Poured into a pint glass. 4.5 A: Hazy golden straw color. Two fingers of creamy off-white head that retains well and leaves tons of pillowy lacing. 4.5 S: Tons of pepper and a lemony grassiness. Bit of funk with some sour green apple and overripe peaches. 4.0 T: Damn good beer. Brett really shines though and lends a pleasant brett funk. Mild hop bitterness gives balance. Peppery yeastiness combines with the rye to give a nice spiciness. There is a slight peachy fruitiness, but much less that I was expecting. 4.0 M: Light-medium body. Spritzy carbonation and a perfect amount of it. Light on the tounge. 4.0 D: Good brew. I like a good brett'd beer every once in a while and this one didn't disappoint. Edit: After looking at some of the other reviews, it seems like there are some major quality control issues. I bought this in Maryland and had no such problems.

Clean scent, starts with a sharp clean and bitter note. Smooths out a bit. Ultimately a crisp, clean finish. Very drinkable.

Initial apricot aroma with low sour notes, no hop aroma. Light copper in color, 15 - 17 SRM. Initial sourness that quickly sweetens out with peachy notes and ends with a rye dry/belgian finish. Medium low mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall for me the beer is too "belgian" and you get the "Brett" the whole way through. Would be good with nice salmon filet with sweet potatoes.

A bit too sweet, and caramel flavors linger too long. Even if it were considered as a biere de garde.

It's the color of a good hefe and a dense, rocky head. The aroma is reminiscent of a not-quite-ripe nectarine. Now take that and mix in a bit of clove and bitter, but clean, hops. Very dry and warming. Go get one.

cloudy with a hint of amber in the coloring, some definite coriander flavor with floral hops but had a weird aftertaste. could best be described as 'dusty'. for being labeled as having brett in it there was little sour character to it. I suspect this was a pretty young bottle too.
