Gold-orange, hazy, fluffy white head. Dry, crackerlike malt with some grainy-sweet pilsner malt notes, spicy saison yeast character and some earthy Brett funk, lemons, a little acidic tartness, a little alcoholic edge on it. Nice saison.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Saraveza’s Farmhouse and Wild Ale Festival, pours a cloudy vibrant yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of prominent farmhouse notes, a little citrus zest, and some barnyard notes. Flavour brings lots of funky barnyard notes, a little leather, lightly tart / tangy tropical fruity notes and a musty earthiness to it. Lots of depth to this, with a lingering finish of lightly tart fruits. Delicious stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber thanks to Mike, picked up in the Great White North. Pours a orange color with a large white head. The aroma is a big Brett funk and almost woody. A nice mellow flavor that showcases Brett with little spiciness, dry, funky at times, little bit of fruity hops. Enjoyable. Great nose.

This one big thanks to my friend Ian! Nose is peppercorns, mustiness, fruits, heavy spices, oddly woody. Flavor is dry and sparkly with fruits, pepper, basement funk. Light dry and a nice farmhouse beer from the land of no farmhouses.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at a recent tasting generously hosted by hannont... Poured pale yellow with a white head. Nose had sulfur and egg-like, pungent yeast tones. A little off putting with that aroma. However, flavor was decent with hop bitterness, pepper-spice, wood and brett funk. Really couldn’t get past that nose though.
