Brett Saison

375mL corked and caged bottle. $10.99 Tavour. Cork jammed in hard. Despite the cork, lack of pop on opening, but still carbonated OK. Golden, slightly clouded pour with a nice head that gives good retention and some decent lace. Looks good. Advertised as a 'Brett Saison', the nose gives up a little funk, but it's not large. That's OK because one would expect more of that element in the tastes but it too is somewhat muted. It's quite delicate in fact, which for me is a plus. Some drying...

Batch no: 2021, Bottled on 2/23/22. Pale, clouded yellow body with a modest head. Head is light and bubbly. Light film is left, a very, very light touch of lace, hardly anything left on the glass. Great mouthfeel. Feels both lively and light. Light, fruity acidity on the nose, not necessarily discernible as peach for me. Nice, but somewhat generic. There's a lovely, gentle balance about this beer. Sour and sweet complement rather than compete. Gently vying with one another for the spotlight....

33cl bottle, imported from Belgium. Orange, hazed pour with a modest head. Nice retention but not a great deal of lace. Nose is immediately apparent with a serious dose of funk right off the bat. A touch of white pepper up front, but it's mainly a a funky cheese note. Big cheesy funk in the tastes too, but the beer is surprisingly light to drink. Very light on its feet in fact. The funk brings some lovely residual bitterness that turns into hoppy burps, and a dry, satisfying bitter aftertaste....
