Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of me, thnx to Secret Santa for this one! Pours a hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is slightly peppery, spicy Belgian saison yeast, some tartness in there and a crisp fruity note as well. Flavor is fairly bready, again loads of yeast present, some dried fruits and a peppery aftertaste. Decent take on the saison style, with a nice JK twist to it. Very nice surprise.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy soft yellow with minimal head. Nose is barnyard, floral hop, bit tart, lemon, pineapple and tropical fruit. Taste is wild yeast character, a bit bready, bit tart, barnyard, bit of lemon/lime zest. Overall crisp and refreshing, a bit dry on the finish. Thin mouthfeel without being watery. Very drinkable. I like it a lot as a wild, it's not really a saison to me, doesn't have those classic saison notes. I'm rating it as a wild. Das ist gut.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma of lime zest, floral, and barnyard. Pours hazy blonde with great film and solid carbonation. Taste is wonderful. Light lemon/lime zest, pepper, barnyard, and a clean yeasty finish. Crisp, tart, and clean. Just a perfect session saison.
