3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Very crisp and tasty. A hint of warming alcohol as well. Overall, I think this is a wonderful Saison that I would be happy to drink again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Corked and caged 25.4oz, VINTAGE 2012. Nose is fruity and funky Brett, spicy and bright Saison yeast, touch of pepper, green grape skins, light acetic [though only in the nose]. Clear golden very effervescent, dense/tight Orvallish white head. Taste dry and very Brett-forward, probably on equal footing with the saison. Golden malt, very crisp fullish body, pepper, a touch rubbery but that’s only for a few milliseconds. Smooth wooden/cork character (though not ’corked’). Gently warming as if 8-9% abv, light-medium bitterness with a lingering fullness of hops. Still very vibrant and strong in flavor, great against food.
