Tap at pizza boy. Bright, glowing golden. Weaker foam. Nose is spicy saison yeast, flowers, pollen, Asian melons. Taste is tart, spicy jackfruit and chili powder, Asian melon like durian and mango. Bright, mild acid on palate. Present hoppiness. Saison yeast restrained. One of the most interesting beers I’ve had in awhile. Quite awesome.

Growler courtesy of Brian at Max’s for Jen’s going away tasting. Pours a just clear gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Nice bretty funk, a bit of sour acid, a bit of tartness. Sweet up front with some bretty funk, then picks up the fleshy apple notes. Dries out nicely but retains a touch of apple. Very interesting. Rather like this.
