Poured into a Maudite tulip glass and the head rose a ton!!
A-amber with huge huge huge 6 finger head. And it kept getting bigger!! Cloudy appearance too.
S-lemon tartness with dry light malt characteristics.
T-dry tartness almost grapefruit/lemon is the jist of it. Very dry to finish this near perfect Saison. Has a nice hoppiness too that may be from the yeast, I'm just not sure. Very clean. I could see aging this for a few years to get an awesome flavor from the Brett.
O- for the $10 price well worth it and just a great Saison!!

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.
