3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Andersons in Dublin: hazy yellow, thin white. aroma of nice funk, floral, perfume. tastes are moderately tart - herbal, pepper spiced, woody, brett, lemon, floral and funky. moderate dry on the thin to medium palate. I know it’s based on a saison, but just a sour in my book. good at that.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out vinous notes, lots of lavender, and brett. Flavour is complex and cohesive, with lots of lavender upfront, followed by big funky brett notes and white wine barrels. Very spicy, bretty, and complex. Could use a bit more carbonation. Very good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of oak, tropical fruit, tartness slight funk. Taste is the same but brings out the lavender as well. Slightly sweet tart finish. Well balanced, very complex and all around quite a good beer. Less funky than saison man and has a slight lactic tart finish to it, which is quite nice. Subtle sourness but nice. Really like this as I drink it. Bumping up from 4 to 4.1---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Beer Authority.
Hazy gold pour, limited head. Aroma belies the sour flavors, slightly herbal. Quite tart for a saison, but initially a bit too much so and not very interesting. I leave this one sitting for an hour or two; upon returning the carbonation is markedly low and the tartness remains but at room temperature it is reasonably enjoyable despite the lack of focus.
