Notes/Commercial Description:
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

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and no distinct collar.
S: The smell has some flavors of lemony hops but if you put your nose closer, you start getting funk from the brett.
T: The taste is funkier compared to the smell and has slight amounts of sourness with hints of lemony hops and sourness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an interesting saison. The taste is rather funky, but the brett does not completely overpower the taste.
