750 ml bottle poured into a wine glass. Batch #2. March 2014

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow with 1+ finger of a white head that dissipates to a thin cap. Body is very hazy but translucent with lots of visible carbonation.

Smell: Pear, wheat, lemon, peppery yeast, light funk and hints of pineapple.

Taste: Highly tart with a lighter sour acidity. Lemon, good amount of bretty funk, pineapple/tropical notes, some green apple and floral hops. Medium bitterness that lingers for quite a while.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Carbonation is high/medium. Finishes tart and dry.

Overall: Pretty good saison. Nice funk and tartness, but would like to have seen the bitterness turned down a bit, as I feel like it doesn't really work with the rest of the beer. Still worth picking up though.
