Nose is huge, tons of cinnamon, clove, etc. Taste is mildly funky, a hint of sour. It’s an amazing wild-ish saison. This brewery is killing it!

Thoroughly enjoyed this bottle from the brewery. A little pricey, but well worth it. Shared the bottle with others, but after tasting it, I wish I hadn’t. It was refreshing a light yet full of flavor, and it kept my interest from start to finish. Had just the right amounts of funk, barnyard, flowers, spices (white pepper mostly), lemon nips, sweetness and bitterness. Awesome saison.

Bottle from the brewery. Massive white head on a hazy straw gold body. Very spicy aroma with the yeast I’d expect but with sage perhaps. Similar body but brett thickness and a faint sour finish. Stellar.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet tart dust, florals, herbs, cereal, grain, and horseblanket. Flavor of herbs, methol numbing properties, brett, earthiness, some lacto, and grass with a dry finish.

GABF 2009. Pours clear light yellow with an average, frothy white head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, hay, straw, cereal, meal), light hop (flowers, herbs, grass), heavy yeast (sweat, horse blanket, barnyard, cheese, earth, musty) with notes of grape, apple, pepper. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Long duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Brettanomyces character.

Crushed with Jakebra at the Colorado Springs Saison Festival. Woo. Lavender dominates the nose and flavor. Kinda polleny, flower-petal throughout. Interesting, original, and tasty.
