On draft at Congregation Ales in Long Beach.
Appearance: Pours a light, clear straw color with light to moderate carbonation. About 1" of white head forms and has very nice retention and lacing.
Smell: Lush citrus and some florals hit immediately. Some definite brett funk as well as a bit of wine barrel show as well. The brett doesn't seem to add any sour component, just purely funk. The added citrus component to the base Sofie just about knocks this out of the park for me.
Taste: Huge juicy grapefruit and orange rind hit first. These are mostly sweet, but add a slightly bitter component as well on the back end. Some funk comes out in the middle and back end. I don't get much barrel if any. Super impressed with this beer.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light with ample carbonation, and the finish is semi dry with some brett funk flavors. Just about right. Overall, this is one of the best beers I've had in a while. Definitely a non-traditional saison, but the added citrus component really makes it drinkable and delicious. Had 3 glasses and would have had more if time allowed. Very good beer, and a nice improvement on the base beer.
Serving type: nitro-tap
