3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy golden, lively head. Mild lactic citric nose. Dryish with medium body and spritzy mouthfeel. Lightly grainy with freshening lemomy lactic acidity. Complex and well integrated flavours, mid bitter finish. Another great effort from one of the most iconic brewers I know of.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dirty orange gold with a 4+ finger frothy/foamy beige head. Aroma of collapsing foam is mild bretty sour. Near full bodied. Whooph! This stuff has an impact, which softens quickly. It’s bretty/barnyard sour with apparent citrus. Makes me think of gueuze. It really does quickly soften, and I could buy this as a pretty funky saison. Bottom line is it is fairly strongly flavored, and it is quite an experience.

Bottle (aged in Bon Chien Barrels) Pour a rich golden orange color with a big three fingers of foam that laces nicely. This beer is beautiful and rides the line of saison and sour beer beautifully. Ripe orange, bitter citrus pith, fresh grass, rustic dusty field funk. Im a bit bias because I love saisons as well as sour wild beers and this beer merges the two styles seamlessly. Great carbonation, brett barnyard funk. Just gorgeous !

Draft. Beautiful tartness and light sourness in the smell with some fruits. Flavor is milder but still a nice bit of tartness and light funk.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Kickbacks, pours a clear gold with a thin bubbly white head, the aroma has a ton of funk mixed in with some sweet fruit as well, awesome, more like a Lambic than a saison so far, but I’ll go with it, flavor has just enough sourness on the front end mixed in with the yeast and barnyard in the finish, a little sour but refreshing at the same time, other than the A&T we opened on this trip, this was one of my favorite beers.

On tap at Blue monk. Hazy orange pour with a white head that is a bit creamy. Aroma is tart and bright with some spice. Starts tart up front, moves into some hay and yeast, into a nice slow bitter finish and after taste. Really smooth mouth feel throughout.
