look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Favorite style from my favorite brewery. On-tap at Muddy Waters in Minneapolis. Tasted 15 January 2014, reviewed from notes.

Pours mostly clear medium-dark golden yellow. One finger of white head. Excellent retention and astounding lacing.

Smell is amazing. Has those slightly moldy funky notes from the brett, complemented so well by the white wine. Both light and ethereal, and earthy and funky, at the same time. Light-brightness, nearly perfect.

Taste is white wine heavy and not as clean or as potently saison as the smell. I get a little more funk and spice in the back as it warms, hanging out back there with golden grains. But the wine overpowers the rest of the beer.

Feel is a little funny. A bit too vinous - flat and slick.

The smell carries it a long way, but not all the way. It gets better as it warms. Overall, it's stellar, but I want more beer, less wine.

Serving type: on-tap
