4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: Bottle at Savor.
It pours a light gold color with a small foamy white head. The nose is slightly sour (it’s the Brett!), fruity, and slightly citric. The taste is dusty and yeasty with slight hay and green grass notes with lemon and other citrus flavors on the back end. Light in body with medium to high carbonation leading to a lingering bitter finish. A very solid saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma that is more sour than funk with notes of lemon and apple. The flavor is very similar and again is more sour than funk with the apple more prevalent along with some lemon. Mouthfeel is a bit prickly. Something out of the ordinary and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml into challice. Pours a transparent straw yellow with little to no head. Aroma is a barnyard, some spices and a little bit of funk. Mouth feel is thin with moderate carbonation (surprising!). Taste is yeasty, spicy, with a hint of lemon. Great saison.

Draft. Thin head and the cloudy appearance of a wheat bear. Nose has a slight tinge of funk on it but is mainly sweet with a honey character. Taste follows suit, a bit like a wit. Great session for watching the Blackhawks.
