3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is full of leather, flowers and white wine. There is brett in there for sure. Taste is dry and fruity, bretted. Some fresh cereals, white grapes. Body is medium, carbonation medium-high. Alcohol shows a little, unfortunately. Overall a nice one, this is pretty much the classic wine barrel aged saison and really enjoyable!
