look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

750ml bottle poured into a HF tulip.

Pours a hazy straw color with a small white head with some thin white lacing. Nose is funky and tart a bit of grassy early flavors.

Taste is soap, lavender, and Brett all day. Super dry and bretty on he finish. Its just not quite there since it was fresh. Has nothing on the first one.

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.

4.34/5  rDev +18.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

A~ cloudy, glowing light orange with a huge fluffy head and a good amount of lacing.

S~ tons of brett funk! really in your face! along with strong citrus notes, white pepper, and bready saison yeast.

T~ a lot more subtle here but still pretty much following the nose. Clara definitely shines bringing white/black pepper and bread like saison yeast to the table. then the tad of Edward pops in with surprisingly still some hop presence and the citrus that comes along with it! brett funk all around!

M~ extremely refreshing! the carbonation is still spot on and its oh so smooth!

O~ i honestly wasn't expecting too much from this blend but i'm rather surprised. the dregs had to have been from some Belgium lambics/geueze, the brett funk is just so pronounced! which really adds a lot to this brew and i'm sure has matured over time. i'm glad i could finally complete the CD series, CD1 up next!

2.8/5  rDev -23.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

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.
