3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap a golden color with slight haze and thin white head. Taste is a bit of mixtures wheat, spice, fruit and a bit sour. Carbonation is good and overall it seems clean and refreshing. Not the standard saison I expected but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Beer Trappe in Lexington.
Semi-hazy yellow-gold with a load of tiny carbonation bubbles rising to a modest but head. Excellent lacing.
A style I dislike more often than not, this is the exception. Although the peppery aroma carries a trace of the farmhouse component I dislike, it is mainly floral and secondly fruity. Even the bready malt dominates the funk.
The flavor largely follows, albeit with more funk evident and some hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.
O: refreshing, tame and highly drinkable for style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thanks to mike12da. Clean, sharp funky nose, yeast, and rotten lemons. Hazy light straw color. Light sour citrus fruit initial / some herbal notes and more tangy citrus / very delicate bitterness in final. Medium body and a bit spritzy. Good stuff. Pleasant. Doesn’t really feature any really distinctive characteristics -- but is well-balanced and has good farmy jumps throughout.

Light peach/pear yellow that’s somewhat cloudy and an eighth inch or so of bright white head. Sour funky scent, aromas of strawberries, funky leathery brett, belgian yeast, coriander and cracked pepper. Lively carbonation, frothy mouthfeel, dry crisp finish. Sour flavor, cracked pepper, lemon, mellow melon, coriander, lime and pine. Very crisp and refreshing brew with welcome complexity.
