4.25/5 rDev +1.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
375mL bottle poured into a tulip.
(A)- Pours a hazy golden apricot color. Produced some solid white froth with great retention and lacing.
(S)- An insanely inviting aroma of acidic oak funk meets dry lemon peel and apple. Its very very dry, but very very awesome. Subtle Brett bits.
(T)- Again, a Brett-like funky dryness meets subtle acidity with lemon. Finishes slightly yeasty with bits of ever so slight sweet apple.
(M)- A lively carbonation level. This has a great balance of dry funky oak, acidic lemon, and a subtle yeasty sweet finish.
(O)- The lambic influence in this is obvious, but it really adds a dynamic layer of funk and acidity to the base overall. Fantastic beer. This bottle has obviously had some time on it at the time of purchase due to how faded the label appeared.

Served from a 11.1oz bottle into a Hill Farmstead stemmed tulip. This bottle was a real gusher.
Appearance- Beautiful orange/gold with massive bubbly white head that raised over the glass. What I like to see in a saison. Huge lacing follows.
Smell- Huge brett and oak with a bit of gueze funk. Rather akin to Arthur. Very funky and earthy lemon and green grapes.
Taste- Big brett notes with the lemon funk of the lambic. Earthy, juicy, but with a dry finish. Grapes, peach, lemon are all coming through.
Mouthfeel- Very effervescent and dry. Light bodied and easy to drink. Tart, but not sour. I could drink it all day.
Overall- This is a really enjoyable and tasty blend. Pick a bottle up and check this out.
