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!

4/5 rDev -2.9%
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.

Big thanks to metalgdog for sharing this bottle...
A: Pours a great light yellow straw with light orange hues around the edges. The head on this beer is ridiculous. Even when pouring just a bit into my tasting glass, there is about a full finger of foam.
S: The nose is citrus (more orange than lemon or grapefruit) with a mix of brett and rose hips. There is also a good amount of peppery spice. In the background, I'm getting a bit of light malt. Mmm.
T: The beer starts out with it's funky notes right up front. A bit of brett and pepper mix on the palate for a few seconds. The light citrus and comes on next as the peppery notes linger. A punch of orange peel and light malt shine through in the finish.
M: Light bodied beer. It starts out wet and engaging, but finishes really dry.
O: This is a really good beer. The funk, pepper, citrus, and malt are all working together on this one to make the experience really enjoyable. However, I think I liked Anna a bit more.
