Bottle. Pours a hazy peach color, no head. Aroma is big Brett C pineapple funk, guava, strawberry, lemon, nicely fruity with good tartness. Taste is sour pineapple and apricot fading into lemon juice and oak. On the simple side, but very pleasant.

Steve_0 (3188) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle at home. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and decent lacing. Aroma is full of spice - hibiscus, tumeric, cracked peppercorns, and lavender - lighter notes of vanilla, oak, some lemons, and grass. Taste is big juniper, hibiscus, spruce tips, citrusy, black pepper, oak notes, grassy, white grapes, and hibiscus with a big spicy finish. Medium body with crisp carbonation. Very interesting beer with a ton of spice notes and heavy oak influences, though the juniper/hibiscus notes are very prominent and kind of remind me of a Sahti.

AdamJackson (3371) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Received in a trade. Stored upright for about 6 weeks. Split the 750 5-ways which was a mistake

A - Really nice golden clarity, fluffy head that faded semi-quick to a light thin ring.

S - t. Lots of spice and peppercorn and Indian food spice with mushrooms Brett. Very interesting.

T - Loads of rose petal floral tastes. Spicy up front, honey and lime finish. Oily and coats the tongue with a fleeting lime only remainder when it’s gone. I get a little bit of apple and persimmon.

M - Nice dry mouthfeel at the finish but not as crisp as I was hoping. A bit too oily

O - This is still a fantastic saison! Really clean, lovely enjoyable. Classified here as a wild ale which is fine but has a lot of saison character.

hopscotch (9963) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle... Muckfest 2014... Cloudy peach-colored pour with a tiny, brief, white head. I’m diggin’ on the shit-ton of fruity peach and nectarine with a hint of mango that the nose supplies. Medium-bodied with Key West carbonation. The flavor is lightly tart and biscuity flanked by a hint of farmhouse yeast spiciness.
