500ml bottle shared poured a cloudy carbonated yellow with long lasting white head. nice mild funky nose and not over strong on the brett. I was expecting more but this one is delicate. the flavor was more of the same. nice mild funkiness not what I would call a wet horse blanket but maybe a pony blanket. overall tasty light somewhat tart and funk.

popery (1641) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 3, 2015
The beer is a fairly pale straw-ish yellow color. Itís quite cloudy with a very puffy white head. Tons of bubbles. The bottle gushed a fair bit upon opening. The aroma is sweet, dusty grain with a pleasant farmhouse yeastiness. Fruity, floral brett flavors. Light apricot, peach, honey with a deeper earthiness underneath it. Quite dry. Just a little bit of underlying simple malt sugariness. Lots of earthy yeast flavor. Moderate bitterness. Nice, light feel. Effervescent. Easy to drink.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2015 Taster at Funatorium. Canít believe I havenít tried this until now. Sometimes simple is best. Pretty light yellow pour. Funk, barnyard and super crisp. Saison notes are super subtle are on point as they always are with WW. Citrus plays nicely. Some tropical/grassy notes in background. Balanced perfectly between saison/ brett notes. So, so well done. Loved it. Slightly subdued, but a great summer beer.

deyholla (8034) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle thanks to a trade! Gusher. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is quite peppery with some light fruits a bit of flora and underlying Brett and sweet grains. Flavor has sweet fruits and flora backed by peppery Brett and some sweet grains and biscuit.

Bottle from brewery. Hazy golden pour with a pillowy white head. Good retention. Soft fruity aroma, light lemon, pale grain, grass and a touch of funk. Flavors followed suit with light lemon, earthy hop, cereal, dusty bitterness, dry finish. Lively, prickly carbonation with a lighter body. Pretty tasty.
