3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is grainy, lemony, funky and a hint spicy. Medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor delivers nice brett dryness, breadiness, moderate bitterness and light acidity. Finishes crisp, clean and fairly dry. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Randall I believe? Nice stuff, clean lemony/grassy character with hints of oak tannins, not some overbearingly sour monster or brett funk machine but just a good drinking Belgian Ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was very impressed that it delivered on qualities of all the beer style it advertises. Belgian yeast comes through, hops of the pale ale base are there, and the slight funk of the saison/farmhouse is evident. Well done.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle shared with the boys. Aroma is pure funky bliss. Barnyard, oak barrel, slight bandaid, and some white wine. Pours straw yellow to orange with nice bubbles and a big fizzy head. Glad this was cold because a slow foam started coming out the top as soon as it was open. Potential gusher. Taste was saison bliss. Barnyard, Niagara grape, brett funk, roquefort cheese, and earthy oak. Nothing is too sweet or bitter or sour or mellow. This is the best saison I have ever had. I could drink this every day and die happy.
