phenomenal beer. beautiful pale straw color with the slightest orange/pink hue. the acidity of the lime and sweet acidity of the blood orange balance amazingly with the light Brett character. would drink this all day if I could.

Very good saison with interesting funkiness. Based on the advertised specialty ingredients, I did expect a bit more. Those could have been left off the bottle and don't seem to add much to it. Base beer is good though.

Brother soigne pours a super hazy straw color. The smell is pretty straightforward saison with some lime zest/citrus rind. Much more complex taste, especially as it warms. The mimosa-like citrus qualities and lively, champagne-like carbonation play real well with the barnyardy brett funk. The mouthfeel is crisp, clean, and refreshing. I would seek this out again and again.
