Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip. ABV 6.5%
Deep orange copper colour on the body, with a huge slighty off-white head, froathy but with good retention, leaving irregular lacing on the glass.
Aroma is fruity, some brett, farm aromas, yeast.
Taste is bitter from the very start, yeasty, fruity and with quite a bit of citrus.
Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side.
Overall a very pleasant surprise, aminly because I was expecting a boring amber ale and this is more of a nice saison.
