Pours a light orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of ripe fruits, belgian yeast, musky wood, bready mats, spice, vinegar, and some red wine notes. Taste similar to the aroma but has even more wine and woody notes. Has a medium body with a dry, semi sour, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice BA Saison that is pretty unique.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a bit cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma is lightly fruity with strong Belgian yeast and pineapple brett. The flavor is full and fruity with tangerines, orange, pineapple and a little spice and phenols. A little soapy but nice notes of light summer fruits. A bit too estery for my tastes, but good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Flanny’s in Tempe during the tap takeover. It pours with a totally opaque deep pale gold body with copper hues and supports a . . . well, nearly no head at all. The aroma offers up faint soft apple and vinegar and then some saison yeasty spices, faint red wine notes and a fainter still Brett like funkiness. The taste is pretty darn smooth with a mix of malts, soft vinegar and sweet red apple notes rolling into saison yeastiness and mild Brett tartness and funk around the edges.
