3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clearer and darker than the regular version. Pours a pale golden yellow color with orange/banana hues and a 1.5 finger white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Musty, funky aroma with a really strong brett presence. Strong oak presence with lots of funky bugs and farmhouse/saison character followed by bready yeast, slight zesty spice and sweeter light fruit notes.
Medium bodied with a nice brett presence but it’s well integrated into the farmhouse and pale ale flavors. Not as overpowering as it was in the nose. The barrel character in subtle with some dry oak/toothpick flavor. This is followed by dry, musty brett, grass, straw and light fruit flavor, notably apple and pear. The light fruit toward the end of the palate balances things out nicely with some needed sweetness. Overall, this was a bit more interesting than the base version. The addition of wild yeast and oak aging give this beer another layer of flavor without overpowering what was pleasant about the regular version.
