4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is lovely, thanks to Oakes for the find :) it has a lot of Turkish dried apricot character in all respects. The color, the juicy middle, the fructose finish, the balancing acidity. The lively hop and brett add extra dimensions, allowing both to sneak into tasty and proper pockets of happiness. The brett is apparent most in the aroma, and as the palate attenuates, in the finish. The natural lemon candy and chewing stick of licorice sweetness is one of the many things that make this beer outstandingly characterful and multi-dimensional. The hop is another. Gorgeous.

Incredible mouthfeel with a smooth carbonation and creaminess. Taste notes of heather honey with a floral, funky finish. The carbonation is what makes this beer special as the bubbles are very small and almost champagne-like. A different saison compared to the standards, but a must taste!

Tap (Riga Craft Beer Festival 2016)
Orange, flat. Very bretty aroma, a bit sweet, apricot everywhere. More a clean brett, less a grunge of farmhouse funk. A bit watery. Tangy fruity taste and finish. Odd one, thinnish, could benefit from more body as an 8% beer, perhaps.

Decent spicy saison, lots of sediment and foaming took away from enjoyment. Above average saison, glad I bought it in a state charging a decent rate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 mL bottle from Tasty Beverage Co., Raleigh (bottle 20075, best by April 2021). Pale yellowish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Clean aroma of lemon zest, hay, and damp leather. Taste is mildly tart with underlying spiciness, floral hops, mild barnyard, leather, and horse blanket notes. Really well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at RCBF 2016. Very hazy, pale yellow colour. Thin layer of white froth on top. Sourness, earthy notes, tangerines, oranges, flowery notes in the aroma. Hay, barnyard, hints of oranges at first. Bit yeasty, flowery in the middle. Slightly yeasty finish. Not a good brew. Or something wrong happened with the keg or while serving the beer. Taste itself is quite good.
