3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden honey with a medium-rocky off-white head. Aroma is initially of brett but along with the head this disappears and turns into a grassy kriek smell. Taste is like a spicy, savory sour honey with tart apple notes. Mouthfeel has good body with a long dry bitter finish. This is possibly the first sour beer I have had that Iíve liked and I found myself thinking of the flavor repeatedly in the day after I had it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the UDistrict Farmers Market this morning. The 1/4 oz taste was compelling enough to pick up a bottle. Pours hazy gold with white head that dissipates after a few minutes. Aroma is earthy and floral. Horse blanket, lemon, and herbal, almost medicinal. Oh yeah, more than almost medicinal. Taste: Lightly sweet, earth, citrus, pepper. The medicinal, herbal character becomes more prominent as the drink goes on. Funky, somewhat tart with a dry finish. Palate: light-medium body, average carbonation. Slick and oily. Overall: I havenít had much from this brewery, but based on this I should definitely check them out more often. This is a nice funky saison, and I canít think of anybody else in the state thatís really doing anything like this.
