You can tell even when the beer’s inside the bottle that this liquid is going to be as hazy as mud. In a glass, this holds true -- the apricot-colored brew lets almost zero light in. In a tulip, hyperactive carbonation creates a pillowy head of pure white that’ll make you think someone’s covered your beer in goose down. White grapes are in the aroma, but more pronounced are notes of dried lemon, lilac, peppercorn, and urine -- but not in a bad way. Good urine. In the flavor, the crackery crispness of Pilsner malts provides a worthy backdrop for Nelson hop bitterness and funky Prairie yeast. Here’s the ’Merica I’ve been searching for -- a madhouse of homegrown funk, provided by a truly all-American culture. The yeast blends notes of hay, pepper and farmhouse funk with the lemony bite and gentle grape sweetness of the Nelson hops. The haze is not just for show -- those extra particles in the glass provide more body than you’ll usually find in a saison. The second pour from the bottle is made downright chewy by yeasty sediment. Alcohol, which is fairly high at 7.5 percent, is noticeable as it causes a mild case of heartburn on the way down. Peppery carbonation perks up the big body a bit, but overall this is a bit out of style in the mouthfeel. Nice blend of off-beat flavors, though.

May 8, 2015. Bottle at home. Cloudy pale yellow with a large frothy white head. Aroma is funky, citrus, overripe fruits, slight barnyard, grapes, grass. Taste is funky, fruity, light to medium sweet, light bitter with a citrus tartness to it and some dry white vine notes. Light bodied average carbonation. A bit funkier than Funky

Maltser85 (358) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Hazy yellow pour. Appropriately fluffy white head. Aroma is somewhat muted. A bit of tropical fruit, passion fruit. The pilsner malt is apparent in the aroma. Slight brett funk, typical prairie yeast aromas, which is nice. Light body with decent tropical fruit, slight funk and barnyard on the taste. The pilsner malt is present and almost adds a cereal note. Finish is relatively clean. Slightly dry beer...thanks brett. Lighter body matches the ABV wonderfully.

Colour is a murky yellow. Aromas of hay, funkyness and nelson sauvin hops. The flavour is real fruity up front with some good funk and barnyard notes. Medium bodied beer with good carbonation, very drinkable! Will have to get more.

SlackerMads (2782) - DENMARK - APR 30, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a large frothy white head. Funky nose, dust, light fruit. The flavour is more fruity up front; fruit stack, light sweet tropical fruits like peach and persimmon, perhaps a bit of blackcurrant as well. Some barnyard/band aid, oak, hay, dust/mold. Medium body, oily texture, medium sweet and light bitter. Feels generic and muddled and doesn’t really stand out.

Pours hazy yellow with a smooth white head. Aroma of juicy fruits, vinous notes, hints of spices, malts and funky yeast. Taste is hoppy, juicy and vinous with notes of bretta, spices, funky yeast and sweetish maltiness. Finish is juicy, hoppy and slightly vinous with loads of fruits, some bretta and funky yeastiness. Pretty nicely hopped bretta saison.
