Initial bottle at Three Penny Taproom. Huge thanks to Lukaduke for also sharing a bottle later that evening. Pours a clear golden color with very nice carbonation and a good eggshell head. Sticky lacing. The nose carries a distinct saison profile underneath a bit of acidity and a good dose of funk. The flavor brings the acidity more to the front. This immediately reminded me of some of the De La Senne saisons blended with lambic. Fairly similar to some batches of Saison Vautour as well. Hay, lemon, straw, faint grain, and earthy funk all blend incredibly well with the backing acidity. Body is light and very crisp. Smooth lactic finish. Very inviting. An excellent beer.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of light malts, hints of tartness, some light fruity notes, and some notes of oak. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A decent beer but not as good as some of the other Oxbow beers.

Bottle, thanks to my Uncle Gaines for sharing this with me. Pours a lightly hazy straw with a medium sized white head that lasts. Nose is funky, light hops, but more funky than hoppy, very akin to Green Flash Rayon Vert or Stillwater Premium with some age. Light oak, lots of brett. Really enjoyable and easy drinking. Even my parents loved it and they dont ususally like the funk.
