2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle-conditioned 750ml. hazy wheat colored body with a billowy lasting white head. crunchy grain husks and over-cooked bready malt notes with a wash of sulfuric yeast and sweat sock brett. it’s certainly a powerful smell, it’s not easy to miss the brett character or the hops, but it’s not in balance at all. yeasty chalk and coarse toasted grains and runaway tartness with a big, sloppy, chewy body. woody, nutty, sourish wheat, band aids and sweat socks. overblown brett character and it’s so bitter and astringent that I would guess it underwent an unfortunate oak treatment. an overdose of tropical fruit esters and hop acid.

The beer is extremely hazy and straw yellow with a soapy white head. The aroma offers lemons, hay, grass, floral hops, citrus. Lots of citrus in the flavor. Delicious. Mild funk with orange rind, floral hops, and a slight herbal note. Medium bodied, complex; and easy drinking. Really tasty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured with a lot of head from a 750ml bottle. The aroma was sulfury white wine as I poured. After the head settled I got notes of peppery, apple/pear skins, funky Brett yeasty, earthy. The flavor is bready, dusty, spicy phenolics, slightly citrus note on the back end. Solid saison, rustic and funky.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Clear, a whack of lemon. Hazy, mellower. Bright strawy orange, initially large head, disappears quickly. Acidity in the mouth quite high. Hazy, more dishcleaner lemon, clear more tart peel lemon. Carbonation quite high. Fairly watery, but does cover 8.2% rather well. Does have the saisony lightness, for which respect.
