bottle, yes this one is great. So great a fly flew in and committed suicide cause it was just so damn delicious. Great light saison tartness, almost a forest and main body character. Delicious.

mcberko (9348) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2015
On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of brett, along with oak and Belgian yeast. Flavour is very funky, with spicy dry yeast, oak barrels, and finishing dry and biscuity. Dry, medium funky, and lightly spicy on the finish. Good stuff, though not as complex as classic Firestone Walker beers.
