Really nice improvement on a base beer that was already good. The floral herbal aroma and flavor shines through the funk more than expected, giving this quite a bit more complexity than the base. Really nice to sit back with.

Shared at a tasting hosted by Steve Hackley on September 25. Thanks Steve! This was poured from a 750 mL bottle. The pour is a light orangey gold, quite hazy, with a small ring of head that falls off quickly. This seemed to pour pretty syrupy. The aroma is something else. There is an incredible heavy mint to this. There is a little more light citrus, some vinous grape skin, and a little funky spice. There is a little saison thatís hiding in there. The flavor is not something Iím too fond of. There is a lot of barrel to it, which is why itís getting scored a little higher than I would normally do it. There is a lot of yeast and spice going on with a strong mint presence again. There isnít a resounding sourness, but itís just lightly crisp. The mouth feel is thicker and syrupy. Itís not at all what I would like to see from a sour or a saison. The aftertaste is a little bit like a cider, but the spice and funk I just canít get past. It could be so much better.

Hazy light orange with pretty much no head. Aroma is gin botanicals, orange juice. Light bodied, fruity on the palate with a slightly herbal finish. Taste is herbs, botanicals, orange juice.

Bottle from dresden, shared with the the wife, thanks man! Appearance is golden with straw white head. Aroma is white wine, grass, sweaty socks, white grapes, perfume, and oak. Taste is vinous white wine, light funk, Apple cider, white grapes, and oak. Decent mouthfeel, moderate carb. Pretty good, really an interesting beer, there is a ton of barrel character in this, so much so that it tastes somewhat like a cider, I donít get a lot of the base saison taste but this is still really tasty.

Slightly hazy golden orange with a short white head. Aroma is distinctly fruity. Smells a lot like green koolaid with brett, some peach and floral notes as well. Flavour is slightly yeasty, lime juice, a bit of perfume, slightly tart but not much. Great stuff

Bottle - Funky grape, acidity and some apricot notes. Hazy gold orange with a rich white head. Up front tartness, some cheesy fund and apricot. Nice, light, tart and little of the aromatics or herbal notes from the original.
