4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
375ML Bottle. Acquired at the HIll and enjoyed at 58 Degrees F in an HFS tulip with Ahi Steaks and salads at home.
A - Upon uncapping, the gushing starts but I was expecting it after GoM did the same. Bright golden yellow with a hint of haze. Cloudiness grows as you get to the bottom of the bottle. I love the dregs. 2 Finger pillowy white head that fades fast.
S - The nose is fantastic. Bright, citrus, orange peel and vinous characteristics. Hints of honey and lavender.
T - Exceptional taste. Tart up front, Sauvignon blanc dry finish. The middle is akin to tangerines, bready notes and brett.
M - Light body, uber bright and mouth-filling carbonation.
O - Another winner from Shaun. A fantastic saison. I only wish the bottle were bigger.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a new style 375 mL bottle purchased at the brewery. Hazy golden pour with a frothy white head. Vibrant nectar fruits and musty funk à la vintage 3F with the balanced honey oriented funk from Ann, the puckering lactic character from Flora, and the raw brett onslaught from more recent Art. Beautiful tropical fruits and quenching acidity give way to a super dry finish. Medium body with caressing carbonation and a pillowy mouthfeel. A super fun and almost obvious blend of 3 flagship funky farmhouse ales. Might be cool with a splash of Vera Mae as well. I loved it and hope to see it again sometime...
