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.

Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks! Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is fruity, herbal and full of brett funk. Taste is fruity and dry for the most part but there was some slight residual sugar impressions. Some fresh wheat flavors throughout, too. Mouthfeel is juicy, carbonation a bit light. Really fun and easy to drink, I want more!
