Bottle. The pour was a hazy tangerine orange with a huge (3-4 finger) white fluffy head that mostly diminished, down to a few fluffy puddles with a large collar and excellent sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a musty Belgian Brett yeast, floral and grass hops and some light grain malts with notes of apple, banana, citrus (lemon and orange) and a hint of honey.
The taste was mildly sweet and a bit acidic with a hints of apple, banana and a touch of honey early on, becoming slightly yeasty with a nice hoppiness and had a mild sour citrus taste towards the end. The flavor stuck around for a nice long while, being mostly of a sour citrus taste with a nice hoppy finish that lingered for a good duration on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with an almost ticklish carbonation.
Overall a very unique tasting Saison, one that has the hops and yeast working very well along with the mild sourness, making this brew and very enjoyable drinking experience...

Odeur de saison (levure). Mousse épaisse qui dure avec une bonne persistance. Goût léger d’alcool et de brett léger. Certaine lourdeur au niveau du corps.

Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14
The yeast and spice flavor work nicely here. It is a little sweeter than average in this style. This is a tasty, well-made Saision.

"more straight forward than what i;ve come to expect from the Bruery. All in all it was a nice hot weather brew. light, earthy, with some brett making it just a little on the dry funky side. "

Another near perfect brew from this place. I love saisons, this one no exception, great grain blonde and additional sourness and barnyard hay, but very slight. Such a good sparkling brew. Perfect on a hot humid summer day!!!

Keg- very mild to almost non-existent Brett characteristics. Nice rustic, slightly rough around the edges flavor profile. Probably true to traditional/historical saisons. Hop levels are perfect for the style, very present, but don't overwhelm the flavor if the beer.

Bottle from Sugaya. Lemony, grapefruit nose, nice bretty funk is restrained, some yogurt there too. Bright gold, almost pastel, cloudy, with a fine head. More brett in the flavor, a bit earthy, grassy, leather and dust, and more lactic notes. Grapefruit zest still going. Crisp, high carbonation, somewhat bitter finish. Nice stuff. A but dirtier flavor than I hoped after the nose, but still good.
