The beer is hazy and golden with a thick, white head. The aroma offers lemons, farmhouse funk, grape skins. Mild acidity with some citrus notes, floral and herbal notes as well. Light to medium in body. A touch of earth and some lemon rind counter a mild sweetness. Tasty.

Pour is slightly hazed golden amber with a foamy white head. Nose has lots of farmhouse yeast notes with fruity esters. Some lemon and white grape skins. Hints of caramel malt play in faintly. Taste is a bit more sweet, farmhouse yeast up front, soft body, caramel and sweet esters. Fruity and lemony notes play in back with moderate carb and a semi dry finish. Stronger farmhouse notes come out as it warms giving a nice balance and depth.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Big head. Great retention. Chunky surface foam. Mostly clear amber body.

Smell - Bretty. Lemony acidity. Earthy notes from the brett. Bready malts.

Taste - Bready malts and some tang from the brett. Lemony. Grainy malt and a little caramel.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Easy drinking. Medium light body.

Overall - Good saison characteristics, but nothing extraordinary. The light tanginess keeps it interesting.
