Rare tick, thanks Mac!

Tons of head up top. Super malty/bready aroma, banana esters initially too. Fades to a more spicy, yeasty, traditional aroma. Strange.

Not much in the taste to separate it from other saisons. Intensely bitter yeast in the finish. A decent saison, I suppose, but nothing special.

Thanks to Orangesol for sharing. 750ml bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear yellowish amber color with a big white head that is slow to fade. As the cap dissolves, it leaves a coating of lacing effext on the glass in a webby pattern.

The smell is funky with carbonic and mineral quality. Somewhat lactic almost lemony in character mixed with citrus fruity character. There is a pretty strong phenolic charcwter emitting like plastic but it is faint enough that the enjoyable citrus aspects overwhelm

The taste is fruity and rindy with that previously mentioned phenolic aspect that really drives home the saison yeast attributes. There is some herbal notes of earthy hops that provide just enough bitterness to contrast the bready grain base.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with an effervescent level of carbonation. Overall it started off pretty promising but in the end was a decent to average made saison. Id drink it again if the opportunity presented itself but wouldnt buy a bottle.

3.65/5  rDev -9%

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.
