3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly cloudy dark hay color with a persistent pillowy head and lacing. Funky, cheesy nose. Dusty flavors with lot of lemon citrus and tart funkiness, but doesn’t finish particularly sour. Not without some flaws, but the complexity in the nose and taste makes this compelling. Bring me some oysters!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Nose is very, very funky, floral, lemons, herbal, sherbert, clove. Very, very appetising.Taste is cereal, a little biscuit, funky, sharply tart, with lemons, lime, pineapple, leathery brett, green apple, a dry herbal note, with a spicy character, in the lightly hopped finish. The barrel, is there as the beer warms, complimenting the leather from the brett.
A very nice, complex beer.

The barrel aging really mellows out a lot of the flavors but also adds some very interesting elements to the taste. The barrel flavor goes well with the funk and tartness as the citrus comes through as well. The smell plays into the taste almost exactly. The feel is smooth just before you get a tingling on your tongue from the carbonation. This is an excellent saison!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Winooski Beverage, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Slight gusher.
App.: Hazy light golden with a frail white head.
Aroma: Zingy, pungent citrus, green bitter herbs, light to moderate funk, grainy malt, a little tropical fruit, somewhat peppery, maybe a little character from the oak.
Palate: Medium body, relaxed and fine carbonation.
Flav.: Quite tart, lots and lots of lemon, lighter bitter green herbs and funk, minerals; dry with low bitterness, fairly high acidity and a quite lemony finish.
Not really what I’d expected and not quite what I wanted.
