Reviewed from notes last week at CBC.

A- Hazy golden yellow pour from the tap to a tulip glass. Frothy and foamy white cap to two fingers with decent retention. Falls to a small ring and a few spotty islands atop the brew. Lacing forms webs at the top with blankets and spots below.

S- Quite a bit of lactic and Brett influence and funk feel making up most of the aroma. Fruity hints of vinous grapes, lemon juice and green apples. Like a light Gueuze without as much complexity, in a good way. A bit of bread and grains.

T- Follows the nose fairly well but a bit more Saison feel comes through with yeast fruits and spiciness. Brett continues here with funk, Barnyard and lactic lemony tartness. Wine grapes, green apples, citrus juice, wheat bread and herbs comes to mind. Tartness builds with time and some of that Brett Band Aid comes in but not enough to even affect the good flavors.

MF- Lighter end bodied and pretty much dried out between the Farmhouse and Brett yeasts. High end carbonation that gets pretty creamy and foamy with agitation. Some tartness in the finish.

Bretty funk and fruit leads the way with a nice light Saison base. Tartness is medium here and blends nicely with the funky yeasts.

we dont get enough of these grisette types, with all the crazy grains and low alcohol, this is a style of beer id love to see appear in a six pack of cans (now that we finally have some gose options!). hazy muted pale straw colored brew, almost a grayness to the cloudiness or it, or greenish tint, its odd looking, and not super heady, but thats just about the only part that isnt gorgeous. it smells brett heavy, funky and moist like rotting wood or leaves, earthen and autumnal to me. there must be some rye in here, as i get a little spice that goes beyond saison yeast and falls short of real peppercorns or anything. the flavor is bolstered by the body, to have this much girth on a low abv beer is awesome, the oats definitely help with that and add their typical sweet body to the mix, while the brett does its best to dry everything out. its got a gaminess to it, a rawness, not a harshness, but a wilderness vibe, i dig it. still a bit of sweetness leftover here, and a light almost pear like fruit aspect, no sourness at all. this is excellent beer, the kind of session beer that keeps beer geeks happy on hot days. it has me inspired to try to make one...

From notes (On-tap at CBC)

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Brett funk, tart lemon, citrus and some breadiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some Brett funk, a slight spiciness, citrus, tart lemon and a light breadiness.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a nice hazy orange hue with a solid almost two finger fluffy white head that fades at the usual duration to leave light lacing.

S - Aromas of huge tropical notes, pineapple galore here, grape musk, earthy funky brett. Much more sour smelling than the usual saison.

T - Taste is just as fruity and funky. Loads of tropical fruits, pineapples, grapefruit, lemons, brett funk. Nice and sour.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and dry, almost flemmy, but a bit too much carbonation.

O - Overall, a solid, solid beer. Loved how fruity and funky this beer was. Spot on.
