Thanks again to Jones153 for the bottle.

Hazy golden orange colour, 2 fingers of white head, dense and quite fluffy, tons of lace as well. Smell is funky and bretty, lots of barnyard like funk, horseblanket, musty fruits, lemon and apple, subtle oak, a bright fruityness is always there as well. Tatse is full of brett up front, lemon and wet hay, funky barnyard flavours, vibrant and bright fruity flavours, with just a touch of oak. Light-medium carbonation, lightish body, dry feel. I really enjoyed this, a big fan of the special offerings from these guys, something I would gladly have again many times over.

Bottle shared with Sammy and Liam.

Beer is cloudy yellow in colour, with a small white head.

Nose contains a slight funk, with some brett. Light fruit.

Taste contains a nice yeast flavour, a bit spicy. Light fruits and a dry finish. A very slight tartness. Nice fruity finish. Light. Nice stuff.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.

Overall, good stuff for sure.

Sampled at VT Brewfest. Believe it was on tap but could just as likely be from the bottle.

A-My notes are thin and near gibberish... I believed it poured somewhere near orange.

S-Funky, tart, spicy. More barny, funkified yeast than sour. Just a little bit of wood. Generic fruity sweetness.

T-Spice from the yeast. Signature rye flavor. Funky yeast that has the easy to describe as 'barny' flavor. Little bits of wood. Mild sweetness.

M-Medium bodied with a quick finish. No alcohol. Softer carbonation.

O-Wouldn't mind another go at this beer. Probably missing much of the intricacies hiding here.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a slightly cloudy pale apricot with 5 fingers of fluffy white head with an abundance of lacing.

S: Yeasty tangy bread, lemons, light funkiness, mineral notes and wet hay and wood.

T: Taste follows the smell with dank funkiness, lemon rind, yeasty bread, wet hay and light oak.

M: Moderate and high carbonation

O: An interesting take on a saison with funky wild notes, but probably not something I would reach for again.
