Bottle: Batch 2. Thanks, Kevin. First pass around the table, my pour was exceptionally clear, sunburst amber in color with a huge, long-lasting, foamy eggshell head. I got a good bit of dregs on pass #2 to give the beer a radiant, vibrant opaqueness. Aroma of Bretty cotton must, mild rustic barnyard funk with lovely undertones of white grape, wet driftwood, floral hops, zesty farmhouse yeast, & grainy tartness. The flavor.... Wow. Crisp Granny Smith apple, assertive white wine grapes; both tart & mildly vinous like a Pinot Grigio. Nice wet oak & woody character brings in a strong waft of bready yeast, brettanomyces funk, damp cotton musk, & funky cheesecloth. A good bit of citrus zest, lemon, & white grape towards the back-end for a lovely, finishing tartness. Just a touch of lingering yeast, wood, & white wine flavors on the palate. So insanely drinkable & refreshing. Art is impeccably polished & refined... Absolutely fantastic saison.

Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, lemon peel, white wine, and brett. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with moderate citrus and lemon. The finish has white wine, lemon peel, faint florals, brett, and faint sweet tarts. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, I could drink this all day.

From notes of Saturday's tasting. Batch 2 bottle. Aroma is fairly wine forward with medium light wine barrel character. Light peppery phenolics with light fruit notes of melon, citrus and grapes. Pours a cloudy hay-like yellow gold with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Flavor is fairly wine forward with some white grape notes an tannins. Light citrus and melon also present. Dry finish with medium bitterness. Medium mineral character. Faint esters and medium phenolics. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice softness to it with low astringency and alcohol warmth. Overall another great saison that is once again minerally but soft as well. Nice wine and tannin notes add complexity and a touch of fruitiness while adding to the perception of dryness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
