4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. Hazy golden-yellow pour with a big white head that fades to a thin film and a messy ring. Aroma is great. Moderate brett, pineapple, dank hay, light strawberry, and lemon peel. Tastes awesome. Barnyard brett presence throughout while other flavors pop up here and there. Juicy pineapple, grapefruit, lemon peel, hay, dry oak and apple cider. Tart, dry cider-like finish. Great saison. One of the best I’ve had.

Shared 750ml to snifters. Nice pop of the cork. Frisky golden yellow pour with a huge pillowy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of moderate funk and maybe some sweetness. Absolutely vibrant flavor of lemon and other sweet citrus deliciousness with just a wee funk in the middle. Amazing sweet fruity finish.
