Saison – Brett

750 mL corked & caged bottle courtesy of PittBeerGirl as part of Secret Bunny 2010. Batch number 2009-1, bottle 00220 out of 11925.
I loosened the cage on the bottle, turned around to get a glass of water and 30 seconds later the cork flew out and hit the kitchen ceiling. Good level of carbonation!
Beer gives a light orange, mid-butterscotch pour. HUGE head that sat there like an ice-cream. Super looking.
Nose is true to the description of a Saison with Brett, but quite mild.
Tastes reflect the nose with a lemongrass note on top of the Brett and some more pronounced bitter, funk in the finish. Carbonation lingers for some time as well. Light mustard also makes an appearance with some timid acidity.
Mouthfeel is excellent and the beer is easy drinking.
Perhaps my expectations were a little too high, and although this is a very nice beer it never really broke through into stellar quality. All the same, a first class beer and one that I would always be more than delighted to drink.
