Growler thanks to craftycarl21. Pours a clear, light pale golden. Medium white foam with thicker sheets of lacing. Nose is pineapple, fresh peach, tangerine, sweet cream butter, vanilla. Very mild white wine funk. Taste is bitter, fresh grapefruit rind and tangerine juice. Palate is quenching, refreshing. Really nice overall but I wouldn’t call this a sour or wild. More saison.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Golden pour with a good off-white head. Fruity aroma, plenty of Brett, a bit of funk and tart, some lemon, lots of stone and pit fruits... really digging the aroma. Nice flavor, a bit of spice, some Brett and funk, lemon, a touch floral - not as good as the aroma led on. Nice.

Draft at tired hands with Linh, pat and Janine. Pours a bright hazy yellow with thin white lacing. aroma is grass, hop and funk. Mouthfeel is medium and crisp with notes of funk, hop and grass. Reminiscient of Stillwater’s Premium - very nice, sessionable Brett-infused brew.

transparent gold, soft white head, large-bubbled. Nose is peach and lime, nice pine balance from hop. Peach and cream up front followed by light metal, thick pine finish before doughy end emerges with warmth. Aside from the thick piney body, a hoppy saison TH style

Tap at Tired Hands, Pours light murky straw gold. Aromas are salty sea, beachy yeast, blood orange, and peach citrus. Taste is delicious fruity brett, bitter grapefruit, spicy bread and more earthy tones. Medium body. I love brews that remind me of the shore and you can’t go wrong with galaxy hops. Cheers
