4.5/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle into tulip. Purchased for $12.99. I really wish there was a bottled on date. Pour is brownish burnt orange color with thick white bubbly head. Lots of funk aromas - again really wish I knew the age. Seems way too funky in the nose to be young, and the place I bought it from usually has old stuff lying around for a while. Some hop aroma remains with classic saison yeast notes and deff brett - spicy, rye, and fruity.
Flavor is definitely rustic - caramel malt is very present with a nice helping of wheat and fruity noble hop. Its a very malty saison and the rye definitely gives it a nice kick of spice. Id imagine classic rustic saisons from old world Belgium had lots of rye and whatever else they can grab in it. The mouthfeel is damn near perfect. Super dry and a perfect body - not too heavy and not too light. Its nearly 9% and you can tell it has a kick, but its not overdone. Really a great Saison...really a great example of the style and delicious to boot!
