Aroma is strong citrus/spices and a hint of heat. The flavor is citrus/spices, fruit/berries, malts, grapefruit, a thick and almost pulpy body and a sour, almost milky, finish.

Look: golden - check, nice equal billowy white head - check, but it does descent very fast. Leaves a nice ring. Carbonation looks descent. There are some particles visible.

Smell: fruity, citrus zest, hint of mango, apple, yeast and there is definitely some funk. It’s also slightly spicy. Everything is very subtle yet well balanced.

Taste: again, very well balanced. Starts fruity then goes to sweet dry malty middle and into some funk and tart - very nice, saison like. Bitterness also well balanced, with a nice aftertaste. High alcohol is surprisingly well hidden.

Mouthfeel: nice, slightly spicy carbonation, medium, creamy, silky body. Goes down nice and smooth with medium dry finish.

Overall: Very easy fruity yet a very well balanced complex story with some funk and spicy notes to take it to another level.

Oh, and absolutely love the bottle label.

Pepper and lemon in this with some florals - great flavour play between the latter two. Finishes with light sourness, bitterness, and a little spice. Some booze and light coriander. Nice package, and original. Pours golden clear with decent and and lacing. Bottle.

12oz bottle picked up at the COOP a couple of nights ago... Poured into my FW goblet... a 1" meringue like head rises and takes a while to settle back down... the brew is hazed straw golden. Nose shows big green apple and some lemon zest essence... Smells like brett is used somewhere in the fermentation/finishing process, but I am not sure... could just be a bunch of grassy hops. Flavor has nice tart green apple esters.. maltiness shows as a cracker/dry bready element.. a light white pepper/lesser clove note appears on the finish.... fairly aggressive grassy/earthy hoppiness with warmth punctuates the mid-palate through the finish. Big carbonation.. even a bit abrasive.. light body... no real EtOH... I like this one.
