Bottle, shared at poker. Very hazy orange-gold, lasting off white head. Aroma is hay, light florals, light citrus, light funk. Delicate palate, flavours of hay and field flowers, funk, a kiss of tangerine, dry finish. I could drink this all night.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lively carbonation; thinnish body. Bright with lots of citrus aromas. Light malt flavors of (hay, grains), and only a faint, honey-like sweetness. Pepper note kind of overpowers the other subtleties in the beer. Pinch of funk in the background. Overall, it’s not a bad saison by any means, though I thought it lacked some depth.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle.
I was excited to try this one. Pours orange with a decent head and lots of lacing. The nose is straight-ahead brett, a fair amount of bread and some citrus peel from the centennial, along with some tropicals from the simcoe. The citra comes on strong in the flavor--I was surprised not to see it listed on the side of the bottle since it was so clearly there, along with some simcoe juiciness. An interesting combo, but unfortunately, it doesn’t really click. Too much hop juiciness for a saison. Pretty nice to drink but not a standout like you might hope for from the combined talents of these two brewers.
