Inspired by the artistry and assertiveness of Omnipollo's Nebuchadnezzar, I decided on a demure approach. Expressing the lovely hop profile of the original &tying it together with farmhouse yeast and Brettanomyces for a fruity, funky fiesta ;7

From a 22 oz bomber, this farmhouse saison style pours a beautiful straw yellow with a monsterous white head that slowly dies to a 1/2 inch thick soapy foam and fantastic lacing. Nose of lemon grass, bret funk, citrus fruits, heavy grain, white pepper, and light spicy hops. Flavors are earthy lemon grass to the sides and back blending with a light pink grapefruit flavor. A light sweetness to the front and sides comes through as it warms, and a deep bitterness from the hops dominates the back with a white/black pepper aftertaste. Mouth feel is well carbonated and lively finishing dry and moderately bitter. I am usually not a fan of this style, but this one is nicely done. More for the hop heads out there, but still a solid well crafted brew.

Cheers.

Pours a murky golden-yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, earth, spice, yeast, funk, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, fruit, funk, Brett, yeast, and peppery hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that has a great balance between the hop and Brett characteristics all around.

Serving type: bottle.

22 oz. bottle from FMcD's poured into a tulip glass.

A- Maybe a tulip glass was not the best choice. A not aggressive pour resulted in a three finger billowy head. Cloudy golden orange.

S - Hops? Funk. Bread. Mild spice.

T - First sip....interesting..though not sure how to place it. Not overly sour as I was expecting. There is some barnyard funk. Saison-ish (I think of a saison as having the grain/wheat/funk feel without the sourness). I am pulling out some grains and some faint banana notes. Maybe my palate is tired. Is there a pill for tired palate? I'll take two, please!

M - As expected due to the huge carbo release, the mouthfeel is soft and carbonation on the light side.

O - The more I drank, the more it resembled a few things I could relate to. English IPA characteristics, which, if you are like me, need to be reminded to appreciate it. Lemon. The funk remained. Worth a try.
