Cloudy orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma is a soft sour, light spice and yeast. Taste is a pleasant sourness, not puckering. Nice balance of spice, sour, and yeast flavors. Lacing is shown after each sip. Dry aftertaste. A soft flavorful beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wild yeasts! Sour! Cloudy golden body, with a spicy, sour yeast body that shows limited citrus and loads of chalky mineral from the brett. Unique, refreshing and balanced.

750ml bottle. Pours super hazy gold with large fluffy, white head. Head even creeped out of the bottle before pouring. Smell was floral, brett, fruity, dried lemon, grassy. Taste is much the same a little funky, light tart, with all the wonderful flavors mentioned in the smell. A bit of spice and peach as well. Dry, medium bodied. Complex, refreshing, really, really nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Lake Wenatchee
Foamy head atop hazy maize pour. Funky brett, bubblegum aroma. Tart with lemon juice and brett dryness. Strong flavors, 8% abv as opposed to the lighter thirst-quenching properties of some of my favorite saisons. Not particularly subtle in execution, but without obvious flaws. This compares not so badly with the classic Saison Dupont that I opened next. I feel like I’m lowballing it a bit here at 3.5 but I don’t see which category deserves a bump.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy gold with a thin white head. Barnyard, black pepper aroma. Fruity, sour with a mild drying bitterness. Great flavors and balance. This would be fantastic with most vegetarian and seafood dishes.

751 mL Bottle purchased from Hunger Mountain for exactly $10.99. To snifter, it pours a chalky light orangeade, sudsy whitish head 1 finger in length. Smells of funky yeasts, cucumber, pizza dough, chamomile, mashed hay, sweet potatoes, wheat malt, and cherries. Tastes of asparagus, hash browns, blood orange peel, candied ginger, with hints of apricot, white chocolate, and rosemary. Peat moss, raspberries, and farmhouse yeast by swallow. Really good shit here. Get yourself some.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy orange with billowy white head that fades into a frothy cap. Big nose of Brett, fruity esters and a bit of spice. Hits the palate bitter with nice doughy malt backbone. Finishes dry with a slight funk aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin and effervescent. An outstanding farmhouse ale!
