3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy yellow gold pour with a tall, fluffy off white head. Aroma is loaded with bright citrusy hops and nice fruity and slightly funky yeast notes, a little pepper, nice cereal notes, a little biscuit and tart stone fruit. Flavor is very yeasty up front, with a sort of sour-doughy funk, light earthy fruit, lots of tart and bitter stone fruit, bright citrus notes, a little booziness, light pepper and spicy notes to the finish. Medium body, with a creamy entry leading into a pillowy blanketing cascade of very fine, but slightly sharp carbonation and ending with an off dry, slightly chalky finish. Really good stuff, tastes and smells great (though pretty boozy for my taste in a Saison) and what an interesting and enjoyable mouthfeel.
Well balanced beer. Nice soft, pillowy mouthfeel. I love funky beers but this has that Brett strain that is just too barnyardy/ sweaty horse's saddle. More weird and confronting than complex and refreshing. A lot of better beers for this price commonmac (1337) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2017
12oz bottle poured into Belgian snifter glass while starting the family reunion weekend at Jackpot Junction. Pour is a hazy, yellow golden color. Almost like a straw or hay coloring. Healthy off white head. Nose is assertive yeasty, funk. There is an almost wine like aroma with just a gentle hint of citrus. Taste is proudly proclaiming its funky intentions as a traditional farmhouse ale. Plenty of that slightly sour, tarty, funky quality you expect from this type of style. Light citrus bitterness that especially makes its presence felt towards the finish of the sip. Relatively thin but heavily drying mouthfeel. Not necessarily my favorite style but I can definitely appreciate the quality. zoucrew102 (2104) - - AUG 5, 2017
500ml bottle. Brett funk aroma with notes of vinous white wine, hay and a bit of citrus. Pours pale clear golden colored with one finger of off white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with hay and white wine flavors with funk in the background. Finishes very dry with Brett funk coming to the forefront with a touch of citrus to balance. Pretty nice saison. glennmastrange (2921) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2017
Bottle. Moderate grain and hay for the malt, moderate to heavy herbs for the hops, moderate dried leaves and dough for the yeast, with notes juicy fruit gum, ginger and a mix of spices. Head is average sized, frothy/creamy, slightly off-white, with good yet slippery lacing, and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky light amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and slightly bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a fizzy carbonation. Super Saison with a lot going on in the flavor and aroma. MarcoDL (5380) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2017

Sampled on draft this beer poured a hazy golden amber color with a large fluffy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was brett, bubblegum, perfume, black pepper and mustiness. The flavor was dryish with notes of band aid, bubblegum. brett, perfume, yeast and mustiness. Very long finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2017
Winelike, lightly sour, and full of fruit. Lots of apricot, plum, berry and cherry. Dry finish. Elegant stuff. GenDV138 (7699) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2017
