750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Talk about a nice saison. Cloudy pale yellow with a small white head. Aromas of yeast, lemon, bread, hay, malt. Fresh and bitter. Awesome brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at West Lakeview Liquors (Chicago, IL). Prairie event.. Neate! Pours a well hazed yellow hue, a bit darker and dulled. Big cakey offwhite head stays large, sticks around and laces well. Aromas are well hopped, florals and earthy, some decent fruity hop and citrus elements come in. Gentle yeast, bready malt with some straw, fruit. Initial is gentle fruit, grapefruit and some tangerine, some melon and more grapefruit. A richer American hop presence. Florals move into bread, firm dryness up front. Bigger citrus and fruit middle from the hop elements, but dry as we taper out. Some gentle yeastiness, faint funk and terroir. Mellow bready and straw. Firmer funk, dryness and cobwebs as we finish. Richer dry bretty finish works with the American hop dryness. Pretty good, a touch off at times but the hop presence works for me.

Draft, pours hazed golden big foamy white head. Aroma has pepper, floral, funk, some sweet grain. Flavors are sweet wheat malt, some odd phenolic-medicinal note taking over, really bandaidy, dry finish. Ugh.

Clear golden color with white head. Barnyard dung, plastic bandaid, bready, earthy hop aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Dusty pale malt base brew with dry spices, barnyard dung and piss, bandaid bretty flavors. Spicy earthy hop twang to finish---very tasty

Nice lightly funky hoppy saison. Reminds me a bit of Tired Hands single hop saison series. Light and crisp with a bit of a grainy malt presence that detracts from the yeast and hop that are great.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is strong citrus hops and floral. Medium mouthfeel with light fruity hop and citrus. Very impressive.
