Bottle from Kris Wines. Light yellow golden colour, big head and decent carbonation. Lovely aroma, promising fruity hop with a hint of yeasty funk. Big flavours, floral and fruity, bitter finish. Superbly balanced and hugely drinkable. This one was really good.

zenkis (549) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours pale, muddy yellow to orange with white, intense soapy top. Aroma - most wonderfull, complex - light malt sweetness mixes with yeast sour and leather tones plus hoppy lime, greipfruit, resin tones - interesting. Tastes tiny sweet plus fresh hops average+ bitter. Medium bodied, dry finish, more than watery thickness texture. I started to like saisons cause of unique yeast qualities, but this brew extents category with even more complexity, so liked.

TomDecapolis (4443) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a bubbly white lacing head. Aroma of Brett, citrusy notes, tropical fruits and overall just kind of that funkiness we have come to expect from breweries like Jolly Pumpkin and Prairie. Flavor of earthy and spicy saison yeast, Brett, earthy and citrusy hop notes. Some pineapple.

Bottle. Deep gold and clear, when poured with care. Thick, white head. Long-lasting, good lacing. Aroma of stable and barnyard, no aromas of Australian hops at all. Sour and earthy, with a slight taste of alcohol. A bit sticky. Very good beer.
