3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of NielsenRatings. Cheers, Aaron! Pours a hazy yellow with a fizzy everlasting white head. Nose is some bretty funk, burlap, pineapple, barnyard, lemon with lemon zest, and earthy brett. Flavor starts with lemon and some sweet malt then moves to brett, burlap, barnyard, then to pineapple, citrus, lemon, and some earthy spice, then finishes a bit dry with lemon peel, earthy brett, and a dry yeasty character. Light to medium in body and a nice saison overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of grass, slight spice, hints of funk from the brett, oak, touch of earthy tones in there, slight white fruit, not bad but not overly flavorful. Taste is a mix of white fruit, biscuit, bread into some grassy and funky hops, hints of an earthy tone, slight oak, vanilla, finishing fairly bitter, and very dry.

10/18/13. 750mL bottle shared by Pacha - thanks! Golden orange pour with a nice khaki head. Cheesy aroma, sweat sock, some lemon and doughiness, mild tartness and funk. Nicer flavor, good funk, some tart lemon and douginess, some spice... tastes a bit like soup. Not bad.

Thanks to whoever brought this to Proof Friday night tasting. Murky light golden pour, no head. Aroma is cheesy and yeasty and funky. Nice tangy sourness, some sweet tarts, a hint of pineapple fruitiness. Dry, nicely textured mouthfeel.

Thanks Pacha! Hazy golden yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Dirty, funky yeast, lemon peels and sourdough. Flavor is pretty similar with a cookie dough sweetness lurking I. The background. Light bodied and lively carbonation. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to adnielsen ! Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a big foamy white head. The beer is heavy brett with lots of gamey barnyard notes mingling with a dose of pineapple, grassy bitterness and earthiness. Definitely brett forward and slightly one dimensional having to search for any other flavors... drinkable and enjoyable just not very complex.

At Avery Sour Ale Fest 2013. Hazy light golden with a thick foamy white head. Nose is pleasantly funky with a strong bretty tone and plenty of barnyard aromas and barn grains/hay. Flavor has a huge bretty beginning with some strong and earthy blonde Saison/barn malts that compliment the Brett yeast perfectly.
