750 Bottles from Theisti and Tipsys. Big fluffy head, just a phenomenal nose - flowers, brett and spicy saison goodness. Taste is dominated by the funky brett, with the light, spicy, hoppy saison behind. Just awesome. Thanks Tim (note: this one’s in Denver now).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great bottle. Love the design. Pours a hazy, light honey amber with - no joke - the largest head I’ve ever seen on a beer. A side pour resulted in a three-inch monster of a head - thick and pillowy - and it’s still there. Really nice, mellow aroma - citrus (lemon and mandarin), some other, fleshier fruits (a bit of peach, maybe), spices, some yeast and just a bit of funk. Refreshing flavor - a bit of lime, even, which offsets a good amount of citrus / herbal hops, white pepper, and lots of fruity esters. It’s really bright, but doesn’t have as lively of a mouthfeel as I thought it would given the head (which I appreciated). Really nice brew, especially on a gorgeous sunny day like today.
