3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Olbutikken in Copenhagen & shared at Takatsuki Jazz Street. Served in a mini-tulip glass. A crystal clear light gold with a thick eggshell white head that has stating power. Earthy, funky that includes citrus & catpiss notes. Light bodied with a zesty feathery mouthfeel. The taste is classic saison, earthy funky, some metallic Brett notes, lemony citrus and an exceptionally dry finish. This bottle was at least a year old but still pretty damn good, it held up well.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Leaves a bit of lacing in the glass. Has a bit of pineapple on the tongue. Nice flavor definitely get the barnyard funk. Finishes clean. Another nice entry from lost abbey.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Bambino’s. Pours hazy bright golden yellow with thick white head. Aroma is lightly sweet pale malt and fresh earthy barnyard flavors that fill your nose; coriander really jumps out. Taste is clean pale malt, faint tart notes, with sharply crisp finish. Dry lightly spicy peppery flavors linger. Simple light refreshing beer; very easy drinking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Lost Abbey. Cloudy straw pour with okay foam. Yellow apple nose with plastic, pineapple. Apple taste with more chemical and medicinal qualities, somewhat sour and high bubbly carbonation. Somewhat refreshing and definitely light bodied. Too medicinal for me.

On draft at Ladyface. Hazy golden yellow pour with a white head and white lacing. Slight funk in the nose. Not finding much Brett character here (maybe more pronounced in bottles vs. draft?). Hoppy, bitter and dry finish.

Light orangey color. Aroma is sweet fruits, bread and slight hops. Sweet is predominant in taste with a combination of citrus. Hoppy taste in the end of the mouth but nothing great.
