Thanks joet for this bubbly, hazy pour. Horseblanket note appears in aroma and builds throughout flavor. Dominated by acedic tartness . Refreshing dryness and light mouthfeel (hides the 7%abv).

Good barrel aged saison but this brewery continues to fall a little short of the top saison breweries. Hazy straw color with light white head. Aroma is oak, funk, pineapple, dough and cheese. Taste is funky tart and a bit too doughy sweet. Overall nice but the sweetness detracts.
