The beers a white and creamy head that lasts for a while. The beer itself is a clear gold color.
The beer has earthy smell along with grain and wheat. The beer also has hop notes that resemble lemon notes and a bit of grassy nose as well. The smell also has a hint of sweetness is not very noticeable.
The beer has an earthy taste along with wheat and grain. There are also some fruity notes such as lemon and a bit of grain to balance it out. The tropical fruit notes and hop notes are much stronger than the usual wheat and grain. Additionally, a fairly bitter and slightly metallic yet somewhat bitter aftertaste.
Biting carbonation and medium bodied. However, the body is a bit on the light side for a saison.
A fairly decent saison and worth getting again in the future

Not sure the regular price of this beer but I got it on discount from 15.95 for just 9 bucks. Must be old at least a few months to possibly a year from last spring you never know with beers from this place.
A - Very carbonated I got well over two inches that fades rather slowly. Probably to a good lace ring... yep! Color is a hazy opaque yellow color with no chunks so thankfully it's not TOO old or stored wrong.
S - Fresh and full of Brett that tickles the nostrils like a fresh squeezed lemon. Beneath this I do get some dry funky yeast and maybe some peppery spice but it's mostly sour.
T - Not sure how but I get no sour flavors in the taste is just comes off dry with some bready yeast and very little if any pepper corn or funk. Kind of plain really for such an expensive drink.
M - Bubbly and light Its not too dry and goes down smooth.
Overall I really like the idea of a sour Saison it covered up most of the drying qualities I hate in the style but it really didn't taste very Brett like. In fact it seems like it killed the base a bit since I don't taste many bready malts or pepper corns or anything. Interesting idea but an overpriced flop if you asked me.
