Had on tap at First Street Draught House Monday night.Came to the table a hazed burnt orange infused light golden with tightly formed bone white head,it wasn't in the proper glassware but the head had good definition and the body good color.Yeasty phenols,leafy hops,and toasted grain in the nose with the yeast notes being predominant.Flavors were leafy and somewhat citric than the funkiness and wet grain-like flavors kicked in and lingered into the finish.Not bad but for me maybe a little heavy handed in the yeast department,in saying that it has alot going on for it.

Pours a hazy amber-orange color with a average off-white head.
The aroma is lightly funky and quite fruity; it suggests a tart beverage.
The flavor lightly tart. It also is more funky and spicy than fruity; too funky for me.

Mouthfeel: medium body and carbonation.

O: some nice fruity aspects but ultimately, like many saisons, too funky.

On tap at Wine 101 in Wake Forest.

Pours a hazy yellowish orange with a thick, soft, white cloud of head that has great retention. It's far cloudier and darker than any beer of the stlye I've ever had. The nose has notes of white grapes, funky Belgian yeast, fruit, and white wine. The flavor is fruit forward followed by some yeasty funkyness. It has with a midly bitter, spicy, clove-like finish. There is just a hint of alcohol in the finish when the beer warms. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, dry, viscous, and well carbonated.

This isn't a bad offering. It's smooth, flavorful, and a bit complex. I would probabaly have this again.
