Reviewed from notes from 1/11/14
Thanks Skrip for sharing!

A- Pours a hazy straw yellow with orange hues. A medium sized white head of medium-large bubbles that retains well and leaves good lacing.

S- Straw and wheat are in the fore-front of the aroma. Spicy, moderately funky, and juicy brett. Light tartness and a bit of citrus and lemon grass.

T- This is like a slightly less tart, more spicy version of Arthur. Nice citrus notes in the middle, followed by hay, wheat, and spice. Very bright and pleasant. Moderate funk reminds you that this is indeed brett fermented.

M- The mouth feel is highly carbonated, medium bodied, slightly puckering, and quite dry. Fits the style nicely.

O- Overall I really liked this saison. I would have loved a little more tartness and citrus, but it is still quite nice!

pour is clear yellow, bubbles flowing throughout, pure white head. Nose has fair bit of Saison, light pepper, hints of citrus and maybe a faint touch of barrel. Taste is similar, Saison yeast and light pepper, a bit sweeter, citric and lemon with a bit of malt showing. Still rather dry and highly carbonated. Not as bright as Ann, a bit less deep and a touch sweet in the finish but still extremely drinkable with gentle barrel integration.
