750ml bottle. Cloudy/ hazy straw yellow, with moderate white head (decent retention). Not too much carbonation. Aroma is floral, some citrus and bready/biscuity yeast. Taste is crisp and clean, lemon and coriander, earthy and some tartness. Finish is dry and tart. Very little bitterness. After 4 years in the bottle pretty much all hop characteristics are gone. Still, a nice summery saison.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Straw in color, somewhat cloudy, moderate to large frothy white head, sticky lacing.   Funk
on the nose, almost seems like Brett.   Otherwise pale breadiness, slightly floral and grassy.   Soft
funkiness on the tongue, pale breadiness, even softer grass.   Does have a Bretty aspect.   Clean, slightly
tart, but could use a touch more sweetness.   I actually like this one more than most.   Seems more Belgian
like than many others brewed stateside.   Body and mouthfeel are full to moderate.   Finishes quick, clean,
but almost too quick.   Just needs to be a bit more tart and I think it would be DY-NO-MITE!
