4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy pale color. Aroma makes me think of fruit that start to ferment, especially apples, like a hard cider with some slight funky notes on top. Taste starts with some clear brett notes and gets quite sour in the aftertaste. Not really my favorite kind of saison, felt more like a wild ale, but a solid beer overall.

Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG 2015. Hazy light orange color, small off-white head. Aroma is lightly malts, nicely fruity, slightly a hint of bitter. Taste is very flavorful: lovely fruity, very refreshing, the slightest fruity sour hint. Suitable body and carbonation. Absolutely delicious!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
75cl bottle shared by a friend. Poured a slight cloudy dark yellow to golden colour with a small white head. Nose of sour tart fruits, citrus, dusty horseblanket, grapefruit, and white grapes, stone fruits, zest, and Some spicy yeast. Taste of cherries, with Some tangerine sweetness. Lot’s of funky brett notes, cheese, with a good amount of tartness. Leading to a great dry dusty refreshing aftertaste. One hell of a beer. Awesome! Can’t wait to try the west ashley

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has some rindy, cheesy funk, tart fruit and really subdued pepper. Flavor follows suit...nothing dominating...beautiful and delicate complexity. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry and tart rindy/fruity finish. Excellent.

Bottle thanks to Errl! Aromas are lemon juice, berries, musty hay and oak. Tastes both tart and sweet. Very little sourness. So easy to slam. Really good and easy to drink but also nothing really to make it stand out as a top 5 saison.
