COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with our friend Brian Strumke, this project represents what we both hold sacred in artisanal beer production: quality, creativity, and patience. We fermented this blonde saison with a blend of Brettanomyces strains and then aged it in special Maine blueberry wine barrels.

Bottle thanks to bursprak. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of blueberry, mandarin, lemon zest and overall citrusy and juicy. Behind this there are some funky and more bretty notes. The taste is extremely funky with notes of grapefruit, dry wood, herbal notes, citrus fruits and weak cheese. Has a weak saison feeling to it. Barrel character is pretty subtle.

Vestergaard (828) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle 50cl thanks to Bursprak! Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big, white, soapy head. Aroma has grape fruit, oak, tart blueberries, yeasty funk, brett, dirty, dusty hay and barn. Mandarin juice, citrus peel. Taste is very sparkling, citrussy fruity, funky, pretty acidic. Lots of grape fruit! Fairly high fruity bitterness as well. Blueberries are more present in the aroma. Oaky dry finish, but very juicy over all. Body is extremely sparkling and crisp. Gotta say that the barrel character is pretty subtle.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle... Pours hazy and straw-colored with a small, creamy, white head. The nose delivers notes of funky old cheese, fallen oak, lemon and sourdough. Light to medium-bodied with vibrant carbonation. Tart and bitter - apricot and citric acidity up front; tangy-sweet plum and a modest measure of crusty bitterness on the backside. Lengthy, tongue-numbing finale.

bytemesis (4232) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle - thanks jbportland! Just a bit of a gusher on opening. Pours hazy golden yellow with a large white head that dissipates slowly leaving solid lacing. Aroma is really vinous, oaky, lots of Bretty funk. Flavor follows, dry with light plus tartness, lots of Brett, and the good kind. Medium light body, high carbonation. Excellent.

ippopotamo36 (666) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 4, 2014
At Eurhop festival in Rome-Italy. Little quantity from a bottle shared among the customers. Courtesy of the brewer himself. Pours yellow cloudy with a great white foam. Nose is acidic, vinegar, farmhouse yeast. Mouth: round saison with the right acidic feel which makes it a balanced and unique saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at a tasting. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is juicy, really hoppy, fruity with lots of white wine. Taste is winey, flour-y notes, really bready, citrusy hoppiness, mild farmy charcter, tart finish. Palate is light and dry, super easy drinking. Tasty stuff.
