Bottle shared at Dadsgiving, thanks to whomever brought this along, 24/11/13. Clear golden with a moderate off white head. Nose is tarte fruit, mandarin, citric dipped straw, lemon curd, farmy. Taste comprises orange pith, yeast, light brett, citric, straw, barnyard, light touch of the soap suds. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy conclusion. Decent enough saison, let down a little by the old soapy enemy.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 13, 2013
On tap @ GABF. Cloudy golden pour with a white head. Wow. Great mango, melon, and lemon zest on the nose. Peach, orange, and a light tropical note. Light funk, grass, and malt. Flavor is somewhat tart and heavy on the fruit. Sweet mango, peach, and melon. Some lemon zest, grass, pineapple, orange, and grass. Subtle funk and yeast. Really solid.

adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours a bit hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Brett shines through nicely in the aroma with funky lemon, herbal, cobweb notes. Flavor was pretty refreshing, lightly tart with a fair amount of fruits (tangerine, pineapple, orange). Pretty cool beer.

> Ultra dry, blonde, floral and orange juicy true saison

[ Bottle ][ 750mL ][ Trade ][ Trade ][ Tired Hands Stemware ][ 7.12.14 ]
>> Low haze straw pour, good carbonation, small head, spotty lace. Nose is grassy hoppy, orange juice, flowers, flash of soy, nice golden smoked character as well, surprising. Taste is bone dry, a tad papery, plus very hoppy making it astringent. But it is fairly nice and the aroma is spot on saison with house yeast. Much better than when released.

>!< hops+bone dry=astringent

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle shared at Paul’s housewarming tasting. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Big gorgeous musk, a touch of lemony citrus. Smells lovely. Sweet and musky right away. Beautifully balanced, a touch of tartness comes in over musky yeast. Finishes with a bit more lingering musk.

blipp (8178) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light flowery and faint funky saison yeast, with some light sweetness, wheat, and a relatively dry finish. Not bad.
