Poured out a pale yellow with a bright, white, large bubbled head. Smelled of light biscuit malt, some brett, a little bit of funkiness. Slightly reminded me of a triple with brett. Taste pretty much follows the smell. Hugely carbonated, the effervescence really helps to push the flavors in your mouth. Wasn't expecting much from this, but was pleasantly surprised. Could drink a bunch of this on a hot day.

A-Pours a lightly cloudy yellow color. Nice, thick, well formed head. Laces well and retains.

S-Aroma is pleasantly funky. It's not over the top but there is some funk. Slightly spicy Saison yeast. Pale maltiness. This should be a pretty eccentric Saison, unless my nose is fooling me.

T-The funkiness in the nose is back but it's a bit softer than what I was anticipating. Barnyard funk and a slight sourness. The maltiness has both a sweet and dry aspect to it. Finishes with a soft Belgian spiciness.

M-Lighter bodied. Flavors linger. Spritzy carbonation.

O-A tasty Saison with a some rustic, funky qualities that appeal to me. I liked the aroma more than the flavor but both were good.
