4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Definitely the real deal here. Let’s step past the perfect presentation of golden color, white fine foam... Excellent use of the Dupont yeast with full dupont aromatics in the pastoral, heather, earthy range with a minimized phenolic side. This marries well with a solid edge of Noble hop bitterness and lightly floral and herbaceous qualities of this compact, well structured beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at The Boilermaker in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a hazy golden orange color with bright yellow edges and a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Splotches of soapy lacing left behind.
Musty brett aroma with farmhouse funk, zesty spice, bready yeast and light fruit. Really nice brett presence that compliments the barnyard yeast notes really well. Slightly bready with hints of coriander, apple, banana and pear but the wild yeast dominates the nose.
Medium bodied with a dry, slightly tart brett presence that lingers over the funky farmhouse yeast, zesty spice and light fruit notes into a dry finish. Strong musty brett character with dry effervescence followed by bread, earthy saison yeast, citrus fruit and spicy pepper. Really refreshing but a bit heavy on the brett flavor, slightly overpowering the other notes.

Copper with a white head. Spicy, slight sweet caramel, a bit sweet. Lightly dry. Quite a nice saison. I would drink this all afternoon if I could.

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of spices, honey, grass, and spicy yeast. Taste of honey, toast, some toffee, spices, and a bit of a metal finish.
