COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The bright fruity saison base is given depth by zesty orange peels and tart Brettanomyces edges. The this beautifully delicate beer is aged for 6 month in a pinot noir barrel to give this fruity Belgian ale a hint of spice and earth.

Tap at Blind Tiger Alehouse. Deep hazy orange-amber beer. The aroma is quite tart and loaded with rich cologney bretty character. Perfumey and sweet with a touch of light maltiness. A bit of faint earthy/musty character. Very nice balanced perfumey base. Dry finish with lots of rich bretty character. Earthy farmhouse funkiness with a lightly flinty finish. Delicious mustiness with a nice bright lemony citrus and a bit of orange peel. Excellent brew.

Draught @ BTAH. Pours cloudy, super pale yellow. Nose is a bit of soft citrus, with a lightly vinous note. Soft. Flavor is light, with a creamy tartness, with hints of funk that are softened by the vinous and lemon citric sour notes. Light body and carbonation, surprisingly clean finish.

Tap at the Blind Tiger Goose Island Event: Probably the beer of the night for me. Pours a hazy orange color with a fading head. The aroma has a nice brett presence. Some leather and earthy farmhouse funk with a cherry-pit fruity hint as well. The body has a nice tight carbonation. The flavor combines an earthy/leathery brett character with a tart-ish lemon hint. It remains dry and earthy throghout making it very drinkable. A solid Belgian interpretation.
