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

A- Pours a bright, hazy orange with a huge plume of white foam that leaves lots of lacing. Head retains great!

S- Smells intensely of brett funk, horse blanket, and wheat. Some subtle bright citrus as well. A touch of spiciness.

T- The brett funk and spiciness are really what dominate here. The barnyard hay funkiness and horse blanket are big players, along with a lot of wheat and spice. There's only the slightest hint of citrus, but really all the flavors are pretty subtle.

M- the mouth feel is super carbonated, medium thickness, and very dry.

O- Overall this was a very nice blended saison, but it could have been a bit more bold/complex flavor wise. I know saisons tend to be subtle, but this was almost bland at points. It was still very pleasant and easy to drink.

From notes. From notes. Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a tulip.

This has a dark golden color with a huge frothy white cap.

The nose is dry and solventy. There is a little bit of lemony soap in the aroma. It tastes like a dry saison with lemony dish soap. Maybe it is from the combination of Brett, lemon, and the base beer, but this is definitely off-putting, to say the least. It is very artificial and tastes like chemicals.

It has a dry character with full, crisp carbonation.

I had about a sip of this and then dumped the rest. It is bad.
