3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a minimal, fizzy, white head. The bouquet is woody, acidic and lightly funky. Light-bodied and astringent with stinging carbonation. The flavor is slightly tart and lemony, followed by a tangy, raspy, bone-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ What the Funk Denver 2014. Golden appearance with a white head. Unfortunately, there was a bunch of diacetyl in the nose. Some citrus / lemon notes, but hard to get past the butter. The flavor was also messed up by the buttery notes. Some vanilla, lemon, and honey. Too bad this one wasn’t in its best shape.

750mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear lighter orange. Fizzy, larger, big bubbled head. Spotty lace. Better appearance on second pour. Still a bit over carbonated. Nose is orange peel, lemon, orange marmalade, sweet orange candy drops, sweet cream butter, mild Brett and cedar. Taste is minerally, spicy, sharp carbonation, more sweet cream butter, fresh biscuit, orange marmalade, small margarine but no diacetyl. Palate is moderately tart and tangy. Thick biscuit and bread. Really nice. Refreshing. No flaws. As it warms, more lactic acid comes through in the finish.

"Definitely more wild than saison. Saision might be what this started as, but it’s got all kinds of cantillon cheesy funky sourness going on. Light in body, but not aroma or flavor. First foray into Block 15...hope it won’t be the last.

Bottle at the crazy tasting at Craig’s place. Pours a cloudy light orange color with a large white head. A sweet nose of spices, seems like some Brett is in there. The flavor is fruity, some dried apples and berries, woody almost in being very dry, a bit of Pils malt. Quite good. Highly carbonated.

750, corked and baled. Thanks, Melissa! Pours a hazy pale gold with a towering, sudsy, brilliant white head and tons of surging nucleation columns. A picture-perfect saison. Loose strings of eggy lace on the sides of the glass. Bright grassy, floral, lemony nose; appealing and decently complex. Could be a tiny bit crisper. Rich fizzy farmhouse body, nice presence. Grass, floral, hay, and lemon notes on the mid-palate. Mild tangy finish. Nice saison.
