4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from bottle at What the Funk!? 2014. Appearance is slightly hazy yellow-orange pour with a frothy white head and good lacing. Beautifully bretty, slightly funky, grassy, tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, light oak, and spice in the aroma. Taste is fresh orange juice, lemon peel, orange, heavy wood, brett, and papaya with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. I could chug this shit.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle purchased at the brewery. This is delicious and I wish I bought more. Pours golden straw colored with white foamy head. Aroma is lemony funk, peach, vanilla, lacto, biscuit maltyness. Taste is nicely tart and moderately sweet with fruity notes and a light spicy hop backbone. AMAZING.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap at Eb’s
Pours a slightly hazy deep golden color with a fleeting off white head that leaves some stickage on the way down. Smells of lemon and funk with bits of wood and bready malt deep underneath. Earthy, bready, lemony, funky flavor with bits of wood. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a tart mouthfeel. Interesting brew. A funky pale on wood sounds like its going to be a mess, but somehow it all melds together nicely and it just works.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml First bottle release from Oxbow ! Its alive... slight gusher after popping the cap so have a glass handy. Pours a deep golden color with a gaseous two finger head that laces out quickly. Bright aromas of straw, citrus with a touch of oak and peachy bubblegum notes. Great carbonation with some trails of bubbles rising through the glass. This beer is very well balanced and as a result extremely quaffable ! Zesty flavors of lemon peel and lime mixed with a dash of pepper on one end, then funky oak notes on the other... both sides merge together perfectly to create a beer that for me is near perfection with a nice finish of bitterness as well as acidity !

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Quelle belle créature! Elle me rappelle une certaine Russian river au nez et à la première gorgée. Foin mouillé, agrumes surettes, vin blanc et cuir s’amusent dans ce délicieux liquide.

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.
