3.95/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours beautiful! Depending on the light source, it could be light pink to borderline copper. Mine erred on the former. Tight and bubbly white one finger head.

S - Lime and white wine flavors at first. It's definitely oaky and thanks to the brett it does have that funk in the background.

T - Lime and oak at first with some brett characteristics mixed in. Light tartness throughout.

M - Low body, medium carbonation. Has a dry mouthfeel.

O - It's simple and straight forward to me. Not something to wow you, but thirst quenching for sure.

3.83/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a snifter this is rose in color with little head if any. Some peach hues reflect the light.

Herbal notes come through in the nose with just a hint of a Belgian farmhouse yeast.

Smooth and yet watery in the initial sip. Effortless on the palate but I am warming to this. Light and the carbonation is lower then expected but it dances on the tongue. Playing to the light tartness this saison comes across well. The hibiscus and lime go well with the style and aide rather then compete with the farmhouse style.

Just a beautiful, easy drinking beer. A pleasure to drink even if it doesn't blow me away.
