In review is a 2012 bottle.

A - Pours medium gold color with a three fingered snow white head and a generous stream of carbonation.

S - Barnyard funk, lemons, yeast, spice, seeds of paradise (light pepper), musty. The nose has lost some momentum due to aging.

T - Some light funk and tang, light lemons, yeast, a little earthiness. The lingering taste on the palate is slightly tart with a hint of green apples and peppery spiciness.

M - Thin medium body and some lingering tartness.

O - Next time won't age this bottle, the beer was good but lost a lot of the saison "zing".
