12.7 oz corked and caged bottle. Aroma is doughy, peppery, sauvignon blanc, funk, dust, lemon, raisins. Pours hazy golden with a small collapsing white head. Taste is bittersweet, savory, dusty, yeasty, lightly tart; crisp and refreshing. Highly carbonated, medium body, slightly foamy mouthfeel; finish is hoppy and a little bitter. Nice Saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle I accidentally bought in Tempe. I had to pry the cork out of the bottle for some reason. It was carbonated though. Cloudy yellow pour with a white foamy head. Big aroma of sour funk and green grapes plus a hint of spice. Earthy and sour flavor with some sweetness and pepper in the finish. Nice but maybe not worth the elevated cost.

12/26/13. Bottle sent up by Homer321 for the QC tasting. Cloudy yellow orange pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces well. Nice funky aroma, barnyard, straw, hints of fruity sweetness and a spicy aspect. Nice flavor, dry, refreshing, good fruitiness, brett coming through nicely, more fruitiness. Digging it. Tasty!
